The quote, “music is the universal language of mankind” is attributed to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
Jesus is my Universal Language. He’s the one I focus on the one I look to.
I had a very fulfilling conversation with my dad. That helped me grow so much. Of course we all want to be told when were doing good and doing well and growing in every capacity, but we also need to know that the things we say need to be things we aware of and actually make an effort towards. If we say were guarding everything that we say we are we can get vulnerable and before we know it too open to when things affect us.
Has that ever happened to you?
God has a special Gift for each of us and all day Ive been meditating on the Prophet Jeremiah I love Him so much I just love prophets so much I have a special place for them maybe because in so many ways people have told me I have a prophetic gifting ( I don’t say that in any weird way to make anyone uncomfortable). The main things that Prophets are good at is spitting truth and fire, but because they are so open and free to speak righteousness in Truth that is very accurate the return affect is your heart ❤️ is vulnerable.
So who is the Universal Language in your life? Who is leading and guiding your life? Do you have someone you go to not just when things are tough and not just a friend but even Higher then that? Do you have a leader? Who on this Earth right now is Help leading your life?
How plugged in are you?
When we are motivated and promoted that means things stay behind you the only thing Jesus said was pick up your cross and follow me.
So let me just take a minute to say that Yes when we follow Him we may think its gonna be tough but it really isn’t a bad thing as we do it, we get so much deeper!
So lets read what Jesus said Himself Here…
Matthew 16:24-26 The Passion Translation (TPT)
24 Then Jesus said to his disciples, “If you truly want to follow me, you should at once completely reject and disown your own life. And you must be willing to share my cross and experience it as your own,[a] as you continually surrender to my ways. 25 For if you choose self-sacrifice and lose your lives for my glory, you will continually discover true life. But if you choose to keep your lives for yourselves, you will forfeit what you try to keep. 26 For even if you were to gain all the wealth and power of this world with everything it could offer you—at the cost of your own life—what good would that be? And what could be more valuable to you than your own soul?[b]
So can we all say like my last Blog “ooosh” 🔥 because this right here is one of those verses!
I like to ask myself these Kinda question and because it was stated so eloquently here in the verse “what good would that be?”
So just so you know reader I’m totally speaking to myself and possibly to you if you need this.
Did you know that you need to take up your cross as a “Whole Body person”?
Most people just think they don’t need to take up their cross for everything just some things, but thats so not true. What we think is just our “Mainly” isn’t our “all”.
So when Jesus said…
“If you truly want to follow me, you should at once completely reject and disown your own life.
And you must be willing to share my cross and experience it as your own,[a] as you continually surrender to my ways
I honestly needed to come back and break that down in two different ways because its all one verse but look at this verse there is so much 🔥 you just got burned!!!! Haha 😂
But on a serious note here for myself personally
Jesus is my universal Language everywhere I go he’s there and sometimes we get in a fog or a haze but what would life be like if we didn’t have a great teacher and great leaders showing us the way? Where would we be? They say that music is the one Universal language and its so true, but this blog isn’t about music its about Jesus.
Don’t be suprised that ohhh there his name is again , because Jesus is the Love song in me. He’s paid a high price for my Life and for that ooshhhh I’m so thankful for and my heart pours out before Him and makes a great song cause even when I sing and I totally miss the note which happens a lot Jesus thinks my voice is lovely. Why?
Because I am His and I have made my heart His home. When Jesus see’s a mess he helps me clean it up. When he can’t understand what I’m saying he says to me, come here lets speak the same language My Language. Come and let me settle your heart.
This is what it is to the up your cross and follow Him when heLives inside of you. Thats what It means guys its so simple.
Where would we be without loving correction and connection? We would exist with no purpose Jesus Desires to make us the focal point in His eyes and that we would share that message with everyone else but it doesn’t stop there that He would form His character In us through us with the Power of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit sweetly corrects but also can come in like a raging fire lets Live lives so pleasing to Him in His eyes.
I got a prophetic word so powerful and it made me cry in the middle of the Line at Starbucks. Thanks A lot Leala haha called out!!! I’m just reminded we need to surround ourselves with people who think Higher because thats how we move up.
SO what Universal language do you think you speak?
I can continue to say this Jesus is the Universal Language we all speak.
To quote one of the Camp Rock songs “You are the Music in me”.
Blessings Xoxo 😘
