He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

I'm A Believer

We took a group of 30 plus to the Dont Waste Your Life Tour in B'ham this past Saturday and words can not even describe to you the encouragement the LORD had for us there. You remember the ten year old I was telling you about last week who became a believer!? Well, the song I want to play for you had her in tears as she explained to me yet again about the joy she has in her heart, as well as how confident she is with knowing that she will be with the LORD one day. The understanding the LORD has given this girl blows my mind!!! When you see her and talk with her you can't help but notice her JOY in THE LORD..whew!! Makes ya girl want to do a funky spin for Jesus!!! (ahahha)

Anyway, the music below was written by Tedashi. (or known to some of you as T-Dot from the 116 Clique and Reach Records fam.)I love this song,because it encourages me to say with BOLDNESS and JOY that I am a believer. It reminds me who I am ( my identity) and it convicts of those times I have looked for my identity in other things outside of what Christ has purchased me to be!

I exhort you to listen with much joy and praise!
**Remember to check over to right for my prayer request.I covet your prayers :)

I'm a believer
we gotta let them know
to all GODS people
I'm a believer

Verse 1 (Tedashii):
This right here don't make no sense/you ain't gotta guess baby that I'm His/
Crucified, died, now alive in Him/I done put my faith in Him hommie till the end/
Now the new life, I live in Christ/It's because of Him, ya boy shine so bright/
You can keep the ring and the chains and the ice/camps main campaign ain't to pop champagne/that's lame/
No game hommie I rep Christ/you can peep my lyrics and the way that I write/
I surrendered everything, even my rights/I count it all lost just so I can know Christ/
Or better yet baby so that He can know me/as a son coming home from prodigal to free/
Free from my sin that's the end of my grief/I'm a believer so best believe this me/
Even at the cross Jesus took my place/He didn't deserve it, I guess that's what you call faith/
I did deserve it, I guess that's what you call grace/He did it for certain and garaunteed my place/
In Him, and then seated me on high/in the end baby I'll be caught up in the sky/
On a dime, in the twinkling of an eye, I'll be found in the air with my saviour Jesus Christ/

I'm a believer
I'm a believer no doubt
I'm a believer yeah yeah
I'm a believer hear me out yeah
I'm a believer hey
I'm a believer hey hey

he came in my life
and i never thought twice
he's all that i have
and I'm willing to fight
i stare at them like

that I'm a believer

Verse 2 (Trip Lee):
Some might know me as a rapper some might know me as a southern dude
Others as a black man, but first I got another crew
Ever since I heard the Gospel message how the Son was bruised
I got a new identity, it's like your boy's another dude
We ain't undercover brother, come and see us trust the truths
That we stand under brother, other things adjust and move
Some say we dumb for trusting Christ, they say we just some fools
But you can check His grave if you want it proved, ooh
We ain't perfect at all nah we recognize this life's hard
The difference is instead of drowning, we trust the life guard
We fight hard, but with the right perspective as we walk this
It's Christ, He works in us like a office, so I'm a believer


Verse 3:
So in the end, hey this is me/I ain't that cat that you seen on TV/
I ain't that rapper, model, actor, baller/none of them defines me/
I'm a believer, known to the One that exist in three/
Co-heir to the kingdom, that means I'm the king's son/partner that's what defines me/
Identity/crucified, choose to die, now the life that I live not I/
But it's this flesh, He laid to rest/through faith by grace I live through Christ/
(Trip Lee):
I'm quite sure your mama told you not trust just anybody
But tell me who is like the Lord? Not anybody
I took a look at Him in the Scriptures, this really got me
He keeps His promises, even though cats be living sloppy
Look at His love, and His grace, and His just mercy
I was dirty, till I trusted Him who's trustworthy
