Talk To Me Thursday feature: Veshawn Mitchell

Hello Cazhes,

Today I am still praising God through song,  I am not where I want to be in life but I can say some people has things worse than I do.  So in the midst of my trials and tribulations, I am so thankful that God is still my refuge.  I hope you guys enjoy this selection I heard it on the radio and I froze immediately the words just grabbed my soul.  Hope this inspires someone today as it is ministering to me..CocoaDout.

Nobody Greater by Veshawn Mitchell
[Verse 1:]
I climbed up to the highest mountain
I looked all around, couldn't find nobody
Went down into the deepest valley
Looked all around down there, couldn't find nobody
I went across the deep blue sea
Couldn't find one to compare... to your grace, your love, your mercy
Nobody greater... nobody greater than you

[Chorus: x2]
Searched all over... couldn't find nobody
I looked high and low... still couldn't find nobody
Nobody greater... nobody greater no... nobody greater than you

[Verse 2:]
Nobody can heal... like you can
Oh most holy one you are the Great I Am
Awesome in all your ways and mighty is your hand
You are He who carried out redemption's plan
You are He who carried out redemption's plan

[Chorus: x2]
Searched all over... couldn't find nobody
I looked high and low... still couldn't find nobody
Nobody greater... nobody greater... nobody greater than you

Nobody greater... nobody greater... nobody greater than you [repeat, adlib and fade]

We shall Receive Lyrics..

We Shall Receive By Kevin Davidson
Let us not be weary in well doing
We shall receive if we faint not
We shall receive if we faint not

Dont complain take the pain
Shed no tear know he's near
We shall receive if we faint not
Oh, oh.
Oh, oh, ooh yeah!
We shall receive if we faint not
We shall receive if we faint not
Oh, Oh! oh ooh!
Oh, Oh! oh,ooh!
Oh, Oh! oh ooh yeah!
We shall receive if we faint not.
We shall receive if we faint not.

Worship Wednesday

Hello Cazhes,

Well it seems to me that I'm always doing my worship wednesday's very early thursday morning.  So I have decided to start calling it Talk to me Lord Thursdays.. I know thats long but if anyone has any suggestions on what else to name it I welcome any ideas.  And with that being said Wednesday will most likely be Whats up with me Wednesday.  Now onto the Word..

 Well I have been going thru alot of trials for the past few months or even year I can say.  Recently I was in the position where I didnt have a vehicle and was stuck w/o transportation.  Now ladies come on now a diva needs her own ride! I am currently working 2 jobs and I help out alot with my family.  So I need to be able to move around without waiting on someone else to take me places im independent and never really had to rely on others to get me around I'm normally the person u call to get a ride or a jump.  But anyways I didnt panic, and get too upset I simply prayed and asked the Lord to help me with this situation for I know he knows all my needs and desires.  Im trying to get better at how I react to situations and circumstances in my life.  So lets just say God blessed me with another car in a week, I went almost a week without a car.  I have never bought a car that quickly.  So with that being said, I feel that God responded to that pray because I decided not to react in the way I normally do to things, I said Im going to trust God this time I have to start putting more trust in him and I know he will make a way out of no way as he always do!  I remember singing a song with the women's choir at church that was called " We shall recieve if we faint not" By Kevin Davidson  this reminds me of a scripture from:

Galatians 6:9-10 (King James Version)

 9And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
 10As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.

I encourage you right now if you are going thru any trials or tribulations right now to just hold on and keep the faith.  Do not  panic hold onto God's word and promises and continue to give him praise for what he has done for you and for the things that he will do for you in the future.  For God will get you out of your time of trouble.  I was unable to get a video with the song referred to above but I did find the lyrics.  I encourage you if possible to find the song and let it meditate in your spirit and I pray that it helps you whenever you may need it.  I love you guys and thank you for coming thru again.  Stay blessed and until the next time CocoaDout...

Worship Wednesday Oops Thursday Again..

Hello Cazhes,

Something always tries to get in the way of me doing these posts on Wednesday but it will get better soon that I know and believe in.  I am trying to better myself as a person and one of the things that I need to work on is letting God fight my battles so that I can focus more on him!  Well today I worshipped him thru song and praise again so here is what has blessed me on this night.. Hope you guys are well and stay blessed and hold on to his word..CocoaDout..

Marvin Sapp- I Believe

This songs always gives me just enough encouragement to keep pressing on and it gets me crunk to make it thru whatever situation I am dealing with.

Bonus.  everytime I hear this song at church it gets in my spirit and blesses me so I never make it thru with a dry eye..  Isreal Houghton and the New Breed- If not for your grace.

Worship Wednesday

Hello Cazhes,

I know its now 2am, well technically Thursday, but I got in late from work and I wanted to do this post anyway.  Well I want to start a new segment on my blog called Worship Wednesday's were I can give praise to my heavenly father for his grace and mercies.  But also to encourage someone who might be going thru some trials and tribulations and is feeling a little down from the day to day struggles that life throws at us.  Lately I found myself struggling with certain situations and circumstances that I do not have any control over and things that I need to learn how to control a little better and I pray God allow me to handle those situations in a way that is pleasing to him.  No I am not a holy roller, but I am a Christian and I do believe that there is a God!  So on Wednesday's I plan to share some form of encouragement either thru his word or in song.  So today I found strength and encouragement for my spirit from a playlist of songs that I go to when Im feeling a little down here are a few as follows:

The Clark Sisters- Name It Claim It
The Clark Sisters- Jesus Unhooked The Chains
Coko featuring Lil Mo, Fantasia, and Faith Evans - Endow Me
Donnie McClurkin featuring Karen Clark Sheard - Wait on the Lord
Smokie Norful- Still Say Thank You
Mary Mary- Cant Give Up Now
Helen Baylor- If It Had Not Been For The Lord
 and last but not least Ms. Church Girl herself:


 Onitsha featuring Coko, Mary Mary, and Deborah Cox - My Life
Onitsha is a background singer for Mary Mary and background singer on American Idol this track is off her Church Girl Album released in 2007 I love it just the words make me wanna put on my boxing gloves and fight the good fight..and not give up.. Hope this touches someone much love CocoaDout...
