I LOVE music! I love most kinds of music and I have certain songs that are favorites. These songs seem to remain favorites no matter how long because they still do that ‘special something’ for me. All of my favorite songs are from very different types of music, and I love the diversity and variety. One of my all time favorite songs is ‘Ain’t No Stopping Us Now’, by McFadden & Whitehead. I have many times sung this song to the top of my lungs as I told people who were with me as I was singing, that I feel like this is my ‘theme song’ and that it feels like my life. I feel like the words in the song relate to my life because I have been through so much, for so long, and they have been extreme situations that most people would never have to go through.
Here are some of the verses to the song: “There’s been so many things that’s held us down, But now it looks like things are finally comin’ around” and “But we won’t let nothin’ hold us back, We’re putting our selves together, We’re polishing up our act! If you felt we’ve been held down before, I know you’ll refuse to be held down anymore! Don’t you let nothing, nothing, Stand in your way! I want ya’ll to listen, listen, To every word I say, every word I say! Ain’t No Stoppin Us Now!” I LOVE these words!
And here is another verse that brings another very important thing to remember: “I know you know someone that has a negative vibe, And if you’re trying to make it they only push you aside, They really don’t have, no where to go, Ask them where they’re going, they don’t know, But we won’t let nothin’ hold us back, We’re gonna put ourselves together, We’re gonna polish up our act! And if you’ve ever been held down before,I know you’ll refuse to be held down anymore! Don’t you let nothing, nothing, Stand in your way!”
This is a very important verse to remember because there will always be people in your life who are negative or toxic to you and it is important to limit yourself from these people and focus on your own goals and positivity and happiness. Don’t let them drag you down with them. Don’t let them take your joy away. Be the example of sunshine and light they need and hopefully this can help them or others. Be strong and be true to yourself.
The Bible verse Mark 12:30-31 says ‘And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and will all your strength. The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.
I completely agree with and live my life this way. To live your life loving your neighbor the way you love yourself and God loves you, means that you absolutely have a pure heart and good intentions, always, for everyone. It does not mean that if someone has done something evil, scary, or wrong to you that you should go and be their best friend, no you should not be their friend at all, but it does mean that you can pray for them and wish the best for them, but from a safe distance.
You need to utilize common sense for all things in life, yet sadly common sense is not common. Remember God loves you so much, you are His child, He made you perfect, He made each of us perfect and loves us all the same. He gave us life to enjoy it and to continually learn and grow in our lives and in our faith. Live this way, as God wants us to, and you will feel fit forever. #feelfitforever #feelingfitforever
