: belief that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc.

A simple word with so many definitions so many implications.

In relationships it is imperative and a necessity.  Without trust the whole scheme of the relationship fails.  It is the foundation of every relationship.  Without it their is no relationship, but a cycle of confusion and ramifications of pain and hardship.  What makes trust more complicated is a lack of communication.  Why is trust such a challenging enigma to establish and even harder to obtain again once lost?

I feel deeply hurt when someone I care about doesn't trust me.  I can only imagine how God feels when we don't trust him.

Psalms 9:10
And they that know your name will put their trust in you: for you, LORD, have not forsaken them that seek you.

Psalms 13:5
But I have trusted in your mercy; my heart shall rejoice in your salvation.

Psalms 20:7
Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.

Psalms 31:14
But I trusted in you, O LORD: I said, You are my God.

Psalms 56:3
What time I am afraid, I will trust in you.

Psalms 84:12
O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusts in you.

Proverbs 3:5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not to your own understanding.

Proverbs 11:28
He that trusts in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

Proverbs 28:26
He that trusts in his own heart is a fool: but whoever walks wisely, he shall be delivered.

Isaiah 12:2
Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my defense; he also has become my salvation.

Our Blind Eye

How do we ignore the number one cause of early death, the number one reason the prison systems are over crowded, the reason so many people die driving, the number one reason for poverty??????......How do we turn a blind eye to what drugs really do to our society?  It's an utter shame that everyone knows at least five or more people who have died from a drug overdose.  It's amazing that this issue isn't at the top of anyone's list of major concerns, but that so many are looking to open the door for more drug use........Sadly, we don't have more funding organizations looking for preventative measures.  Is anyone else concerned?

Cancer/heart disease all increased by smoking and other drug use causing what could have been an avoidable death.
60%-70% of people in prison report some sort of drug issue.  Many of them are drug users/dealers or have committed an offense under the influence of a drug.  Did you know that most of our histories serial killers had some sort of drug issue?
Number one reason of driving accidents is someone being under the influence of alcohol (which is a drug) or other drugs.
Why is their a need to drug test people receiving welfare? Many children in our country who go hungry do so, because of the addiction issues with one or both of their parents.
We can gather a list of personal and public figures who are no longer with us do to drug use.

Yet, we turn a blind eye as if this isn't our reality.......and consider adding marijuana to the list alcohol, cigarettes, and prescription drugs already occupy.

Proverbs 20:1
Wine is a mocker, strong drink a brawler, and whoever is led astray by it is not wise.

For Hip Hop Music Lovers

For Hip Hop Music Lovers

My top 7 list of songs right now that you have to hear.  If you are like me a little slow at catching on and want to know what's hot right now (July 6, 2015).  Check out this list, which is bound to imprint on your mind making you hummmm all week long at your work space.  Slight warning, some of these songs have explicit language and content.

Big Sean ~ This young emotional lyricist has no problem telling people how he feels.  Nor does he fail at leaving you something to bob your head to while thinking about his message.  I am biased on this one, because I am a Kanye West fan and believe in his musical genius as well as his protege Big Sean.  Check out: and
Fetty Wap ~ What draws me to his music is his unique singing style of rapping.  He had to be on this list when my mom is walking around singing about Fetty Wap's Trap Queen.  This is a hood love song.  Who ever she is he apparently does everything with her, and I don't think he's talking about real pies? Ha!  Some of you may need to use the urban dictionary on this one if you want to really understand what he's trying to say.  This song will make you get up and dance and play it again.
Jidenna ~ A very intelligent man that reminds us of our grandfathers and what they fought for and stood for.  He demonstrates the clean, poise, man of integrity in this video.  This is defiantly a song that will have you singing about being a "classic man" for days. I have a feeling that their will be a lot more to hear from this budding artist.
Wiz Khalifa ~ I don't need to say much about Wiz.  If you haven't heard his music then you've been living under a rock or don't get out much.  This is a beautiful song that will touch your heart as it seems to be a tribute to Paul Walker.  May he rest in peace, he is greatly missed.
Silento ~ So, if you want to know what's "poppen" in the latest dance styles then you have to watch this video.  If you can do any of these dances it will win points in whatever crowed you are in....guaranteed!
Weeknd ~ You may not know this guy, but if you've seen "Fifty Shades" then you've heard his song.  He has a collection of songs that really inspire the soul.  He has one with Ty Dolla $ign, but it is strictly for a mature audience.  This is a song that makes you want to grab someone special and pull them in for a spin around the room.
Omarion featuring Chris Brown & Jhene Aiko ~ Do you remember B2K?  Well, Omarion is back and hotter then ever!!!  Not to mention, anyone who adds Chris Brown to their song is bound to reach a record hit.  I don't care what anyone says about Chris Brown, he's very talented in singing, dancing, entertaining, and helping someone's record reach above and beyond what they had ever imagined.  You have to check this one out..

Psalm 57:7
My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing
