Prince of Egypt OST

This cartoon had so many errrrrrrrrorrs...coughs*** it doesn't correlate with the Moses story me i know from my bible o, thanks to Dreamworks and hollywood who like adding jara to bible stories but the song is wonderful
thought I'd share it with you guys.
Me and soundtracks ehn....I hope this my obsession over movie and cartoon soundtracks wane with time ooo...lool


The part where the red sea parts is just the most awesome scene ever
I wonder what I would have done if it happened right in front of me
maybe i would have passed out and they would just carry me across.
I remember the cartoon was the most expensive cartoon in its time. the effects and the voice overs i guess
but no effect could surpass that awesome event that happened in reality many years ago.
the Israelites had been trapped between the red sea and their enemies.
now thats what you call a DILEMMA.. 'trapped between the devil and the blue sea.''
and that was the MOMENT GOD chose to work His wonders. Just at the last minute.

Are you in that area of your life where it seems.. ''oh well, i might as well carry on or give in. God isn't doing anything..Just wait on the Lord, and be of good courage and He will strengthen thy heart.
He is indeed a God of "suddenly.'' and "surprises.''
If you read your bible pretty well, you'll see most times when God is said to arise Suddenly or rather surprise you when you least expect it.
Your own is to believe,
just like Mariah and Whitney sang.."there can be miracles when you believe, though hope is frail, its hard to kill.''
I just love when songs have orchestral performance. its always so amazing to behold. makes me wonder sometimes what heaven will be like

p.s: this is just one of the soundtracks. there were some other ones that i liked too but would save my OST list for another day.

thanks and xoxo

Books with an Imprint on my soul

Have you ever read a book that left an imprint in your memory, and you can never forget the author?
Well, I have and this is my story

1. The Day I was Crucified by Gene Edwards

Front Cover DESCRIPTION: The most powerful depiction of the death of Christ ever written. See that infamous day not through the eyes, nor the voice of other men, but rather through the eyes and voice of the Lord Jesus Christ himself. He tells you of that day. There has never been a more stunning, more heart-touching piece of Christian literature to be found in the English language as is The Day I Was Crucified. Because it is His account of His own death, you will discover little known aspects of Christ's death. You are also ushered into a presentation of the Lord's death as seen from the viewpoint of principalities and powers as they gather on Golgatha. You will meet the embodiment of the law, of sin, and the world system even the personification of Death as he arrives on the scene to claim his victim. The Day I Was Crucified stands out as literary excellence apart from virtually any books known in the modern era.

What me I have to say about it is this:
Some years back while I was in secondary school, (Baptist school) we were taken to the Big church or Adult church rather to see a movie which I’m sure almost everybody would be familiar with- Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ. We all know the story and so watching this gory and terrible scenes displayed by the roman soldiers on Jesus coupled with the Jew’s antagonistic nature made me break down in tears that day and I wept my eye sore.
Every Christmas back then, the story of Jesus was always played on Tv and the normal crying would ensue and tomorrow, or just give us 3 to 4 days and we’ll go back to sinning et al. after a while it became the norm and we'll be like.."yea..I know, Jesus died for me, etc''

But the first time I glanced through this book, I had to go to the bookstore to get a copy for myself and I know my life has never been the same, or rather my Knowledge of What Christ did for me that day on the Cross has been enhanced and I Know NO MAN, not even me should ever underestimate the power of the CROSS
In this book Jesus tells you HIS story and the battle he faced. LAW, SIN, DEATH and SATAN were having a courtroom confrontation with a man who was bleeding on the Cross
Now I know why people make much ado about The CROSS.
The song ‘In Christ alone'' says it all

2.The Shack by William P. Young

A wonderful woman gave me this book and I’ll never stop thanking her cos this book has helped me trust God more. Please NEVER replace it with your Bible. Yeah, that’s the tendency the book has. That’s how wonderful the book is.
Thank you, aloted God bless you. xoxo
I was passing through some tough times and I've even gotten to the extent of where I began doubting God, doubting He cared for me, doubting what I even believed in the first place or maybe I was just deluded or deceiving myself, and sometimes, I would sink into depression, no one to draw me out but God himself did, and this book could not be excluded.

The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts EternityPeople who don't know God and often we too tend to think God has so many rules that he ordained for us to follow and we see HIM as this Task master who was just always killing people in the bible or setting down so many Laws which seem impossible for man to follow
well, this book will change your perspective about God and about those absurd thoughts. I've erred and I've asked for mercy.I've been foolish thinking I can understand God or blame God not knowing He is God and so can never be understood, but the only important thing you should know is that HE loves us, He Loves you no matter what you may be going through and He wants you to see it. Not all the theology can even explain God's word and wisdom and not even the BEST man on this earth can be compared to God's goodness. Only HE is good. Only His Standard matters, and if we've tried to be independent just like Adam tried to be in the beginning, lets run back to the father, cos gaining independence from God makes us fall flat on our faces

These authors who have blessed my soul with this book..,I pray that God bless you both and May you never fall out of grace or be a signpost to Heaven whereas you don't make it, but may we all make it to Heaven In Jesus Name I pray. Amen.

You cant force anyone to Love God. only pray they see Him in the way He wants them to and goodness, when they become Jesus freak, you'll be the one telling them to mellow
that was what happened to me, i guess

e.g Wakovnikoff's rule, kirsten dunst etc
