GOD BLESS YEW!

God bless yew

You ever yelled  “yeah brah!” or “yew”d your friend as he’s dropping in on a nice wave?  You ever say or message God bless you to someone?  Maybe when they’ve sneezed or in a message to someone who is going through tough times or something? What does the Bible say about Blessing Others and Being a Blessing to others?  God blesses us so we can be a blessing to others.  We should all be conduits of Gods blessings to others.  Genesis 12:2, NIV And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing.  When we bless others in action and deeds its a way to let Gods love shine in our lives.  Matthew 5:16, ESV In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.  Other ways we can be a blessing is with our time.  This life gets crazy busy we all know that.  By taking interest in someone else’s life and looking out for others we can be a blessing.  Being generous with our money is another way.  Also, words of encouragement to someone who needs a pick me up can be a blessing.  With that said i believe these things are difficult to do as by nature we are for the most part, selfish people i think.  Ask God to help you be a blessing to someone.  God bless yew!!!!!  pocket bois surf skate and soul!!!!

got brahdahs?

Brahdahs

James 5:16 So den, if you wen do someting bad, go tell each odda wat kine tings you wen do. Pray fo each odda, so dat you goin come good. Da guy dat get um right wit da Boss an do right, wen he pray, he get power an can do plenty.  from “da Jesus book”

So we all have friends at places we frequent on a normal basis like school, work, the gym, the beach etc…  The kind of friends that we have small talk with about how our weekend went, how our basketball team did or did not if you are a Laker fan, we have friends that will hoot you as your riding that wave.  You know da kine friends….

But how many of us have friends that you can share your drama with?  The kine of friends that will go through things with you, the brahdahs, i call them that will exhort you (strongly encourage or urge you to do something), brahdahs that you can confess your short comings to and will pray for you.

The verse above in James 5;16 says “Confess your faults to one another and pray one for another, that you may be healed”.  It doesn’t mean that your unconfessed sins to one another will not be forgiven.  It simply means as you confess sins to your brahdahs in the Lord, it’ll will promote prayer, it will help you with your pride and as a result it will produce praise as you realize how awesome God is.  Sin will loose it’s grip if you take seriously this command, this invitation to confess and pray for one another.  Get plugged in with some good brahdahs in the Lord.  Brahdahs

“The Left Side” Chris Sandoe

img_4528

Rapper Chris Sandoe had his “The Left Side” Album Release party the past Friday Sept 16, 2016 at the Granite Creek Community Church in Montclair.  Special guest performances by Alecia Franco, Du2ce, Sunwhoa Love and Jay Rah.  They also had  Bravo from ENKCREW doing an art piece with rattle cans on stage.

It’s a beautiful thing to see all of these performers using there God given talent to honor the Lord.  We need to get music like this on the radio.  Living here in Socal i don’t know of any radio stations that play Christian R&B and Rap.  Seriously the beats and sounds are relevant to todays secular music, the only difference is the content.  These artist are speaking truth and positivity in their lyrics.  Well i guess until we do get a radio station to play this kind of music you’re gonna have to intentionally look for music like this online etc…  When you find an artist you like follow them and when they perform somewhere go and see them and better yet invite a friend or two.

I didn’t get a chance to listen to all the artist that night as i was manning the PB booth: however, i did get a chance to see #thebighomey Chris Sandoe and i listened to Jay Rah’s cd for the past couple days and i would definitely recommend you check them out..  I’m really feelin their music.

peace and blessings!!!

got faith?

Hebrews 11:6 says “And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.”
In the Bible there are many examples of faith. Noah building his ark, Moses leading the Israelites out of Egypt and one of my favs Peter surfing, oh i meant walking on water.
Do you got faith? Its as simple as believing that Jesus is the Christ the Son of God and you are forgiven because of what He has done on the Cross. If you believe that simply ask Jesus into your lives. The Bible in 2 Corinthians 5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!!” get faith!! Surf Skate Soul!!
