Cocktails Commentary::Happy New Year


It's been a while, but I'm back.  I promise :)

TV, Off. Music, On. Bible, Open. Spirit, Open. Words, Spoken.  It’s been a while since I’ve lent my two cents, so here’s a token.  I have to go from black skies to a cloud with a silver lining, Oakland. I was missing for a while, and God had to get me roped back in. I’ve been placing my burdens on the front end, and He told me that his yoke is easy and my incentives were on the back end. Regroup and cast your net on the other side, I have some Grouper, blackened. Instead of Robbin Peter to pay Paul, Baskins. Why not bask in what I’ve been asking?  Lord, I seek Your face and voice because it feels like I’m the last one to hear it, and end up being the last in.  You said your grace and mercy is everlasting, and I believe that, but forgive me if I keep Tupac blasting. I’m Denzel trying to navigate this flight to keep from crashing.  I Lay prostrate at Your feet, because no one can pray just one, so I’m trying to use these chips to cash in.  I thought this was going to be a happy piece, but I guess I still have some shadows casting. So I keep my seat belt fastened and know that I have to start fasting.  Please don’t mistake this as me being depressed; it’s just that I have a lot of passion.  I want to bear more fruit, so I have to get more connected to the vine.  So I have to be wise about how I spend my time. 2013, I’m next in line. Lord whatever you’re doing, don’t do it without me. This year is not about me.  It’s about You and Your will and whatever you are trying to pull out of me…This is Cocktails mixing those intoxicating words to kick off the New Year. Thank you God for letting me be a vessel.
