I DREAM A DREAM!



Give thanks to the Lord for he is good.

Psalm 136:1



I Dreamed a Dream sung by Britain’s Susan Boyle will take your breath away. Her voice is anointed!



God has provided her with an outstanding voice. Yesterday, I took a few moments during my work day to catch-up on the world’s news and there was a story regarding this 47 year old woman, who apparently decided to entered an audition of Britain’s version of American Idle entitled: Britain’s Got Talent. And did she ever surprise and wow the audience. Needless to say it was apparent that the judges were stunned. From the looks on their faces they didn't expect that presentation!


Yes, their jaws were dragging the ground, but their hearts soared. I only learned very little of her background and discerned from the judge's questions she answered, that her mother who is now deceased encouraged her to sing and pursue her dreams. The audition and début was a result of Susan paying tribute to her mother.



Susan’s voice is that of an angel, but more importantly the song she choose I Dreamed a Dream resonated in my spirit and from the millions of Youtube site visits, others were deeply curious and emotionally touched. Her presence on stage was a testament that God is active and does fulfill His promises. Susan’s confidence and voice aren’t what the audience anticipated! She doesn't have the appearance of a stereotypical size 3 "super star" or "diva". And we do know often apperance means so much in this world! But isn’t that just like God? He displays, show-up and shows off whom ever He desires. Susan appears to be your everyday person and that's what I find so appealing, it reminds me that we can't predict who a person is , nor what they're made of! Thank you Lord!



Before long we too realize that i doesn't matter what lense the world is viewing us in because when the divine opportunity is presented for us, it's our time, our season for the realization of dreams fulfilled!


Friends, I believe that the Holy Ghost is imploring us not only to celebrate the coming success for Susan, but to see yourselves, standing confidently, assured that the Lord has greater good, a "knock your socks off " experience where you too can expect the unexpected!



Joyfully shine, shine and let the light of the Lords radiate in and through you! Yeah, sing your song and remember it’s never, never, ever too late to for your spot light moment. Dream your dreams people, build your furniture, set sail on your voyages, scale your mountains, erect your bell towers, teach the children, adopt the villages , feed your minds, and be on a hot pursuit for your passions. Susan I am singing with you!

VICTORY IS OURS~IT BELONGS TO YOU AND ME!



"Every scripture is God breathed, so that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well-fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17





This is an admirable photo of our Commander -in-Chief, President Barak Obama that I had the opportunity of seeing for the first time today. I visited
Essence Magazine's Obama Watch site and saw this awesome photo! I am sure that I must have caught a glimpse on CNN or the Huffington Post. But I apparently, the Holy Ghost was on assignment and wanted to not only appreciate the photo, but the caption as well, which reads:


"Victory Is Ours

President Obama thanks American troops for their service at Camp Victory during his surprise trip to Baghdad, Iraq, on April 7."



Many things came to mind, first the music which is a standard song in many congregations: Victory is Mine! The photto conveys how valiant our US Military is, not to overlook how poised and confident and appreciative our President is! I recall the many bible verses that capture the theme of our having victory not just in the earthly relm, but most assuredly in Christ Jesus! Today friends I'd like to beleive that we're trusting in God and daily we're acknowledging, yes witnessing God's grace in the depth and the substance of our faith . This insight allows us to soars as live through trails. Sometimes with the smoke and dust still in our clothing , but the furnace and battle fields of life haven't consumed us! Can I get a witness?

"To Him who is able to keep you from stumbling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory..." Jude 1:24

Indeed we are equipped not only for the physical battle, but the spiritual battles that come with diliberate intention to do us in-harm us and prevent us from thinking like victors. Often the biggest battle is waged in our hearts and minds. Overcoming fear ( false evidence appearing real) is a real hurdle in our victorious living marathons! It takes work, oh but it's possible! We must intentionally renounce the enemy-real and imagined! Let's be poised and confident that God is on our side!

I encourage you to fight the good fight, prevail on your faith sojourns, pray for and over each other. Believe that deliverance will come, dreams birthed, and struggles will subside! Healing is evident.

Finally my friends be assured that when you're fatigued and war weary, God will fight our battles and never foresake us. Yes, God has equipped us with everything we need to reach our destinations-yes our destines are in view. Victory belongs to us, its yours and mine! Visit this site and join Dorothy Norwood in declaring our victory! To God be the glory!
