Here I am – God – arms wide open. Pouring out – my life – “Gracefully Broken”.

I love to sing along with Matt & Tasha whenever I hear that beautiful song on K-LOVE. It’s only a matter of time before we sing it as part of our Praise & Worship set on Sunday mornings.

At the start of my salvation – about 11½ years ago – I realized my need for God. For the first time ever I said, “I NEED YOU GOD !”, and I’ve been saying that ever since. In the early days I said it quietly – without talking. And God heard me. He hears our thoughts. Now I’m not afraid to say it out loud – no matter who’s there to hear me. I know God’s there to hear me, and He does, so that’s all that matters.

I realized that I’m spiritually poor without Him. God blessed me. The result – I found true happiness – true joy – once I realized that I can’t live without Him. The Kingdom of Heaven is mine. It’s ours.

Matthew 5:3 (NLT) – God blesses those who are poor and realize their need for Him, for the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.

The Major’s Top 5 Hits RETRO – 1998

  1. Walkin’ On The Sun – Smash Mouth
  2. Tubthumping – Chumbawamba
  3. Mo Money Mo Problems – The Notorious B.I.G. Ft. Puff Daddy & Mase
  4. Legend Of A Cowgirl – Imani Coppola
  5. As Long As You Love Me – The Backstreet Boys

These were my Top 5 hits exactly 20 years ago this weekend – Sunday January 25TH 1998.

4 of those 5 hits above I still hear on a fairly regular basis, but one has become obscure over the past 20 years, and that’s “Legend Of A Cowgirl”. I just watched the music video on YouTube, and I forgot how wonderful this song was (and still is). It’s got catchy lyrics and a beat that I can dance to. Sadly this single is not available for sale on iTunes. (I just checked. I was going to buy it.)

I’ve been producing my own personal weekly hit music chart off and on for the past 30+ years. Next Friday I’ll go back another 10 years to the first weekend of February of 1988.

The Major’s Top 10 Hits – Week 49

  1. “Lions” – Skillet [# 1 last week / 16TH week on chart]
  2. “Miracle” – Unspoken [4 / 5TH]
  3. “Gracefully Broken” – Matt Redman Ft. Tasha Cobbs Leonard [5 / 6TH]
  4. “Control (Somehow You Want Me)” – Tenth Avenue North [3 / 9TH]
  5. “Bleed The Same” – Mandisa Ft. TobyMac [6 / 7TH]
  6. “No One Like Our God” – Lincoln Brewster [9 / 2ND]
  7. “Masterpiece” – Danny Gokey [10 / 2ND]
  8. “Rescuer (Good News)” – Rend Collective [2 / 14TH]
  9. “Only King Forever” – 7eventh Time Down [7 / 14TH]
  10. “Different” – Micah Tyler [8 / 24TH]

A couple of Sunday nights ago I got to see Skillet LIVE in concert for the 3RD time in 8 years. They were the headliner of 2018 Winter Jam here in South Florida. I got to sing my current personal # 1 smash “Lions” out loud and proud in unison with some 19,000 of my brothers and sisters that formed a church family on that glorious night.

This will likely be the 4TH and final week at # 1 for “Lions”, as both “Miracle” and “Gracefully Broken” are vying for the top spot next week. Whenever the latter plays on K-LOVE I can’t get the song out of my mind, and I end up humming and singing it over and over again for hours afterwards.
