Joyful Gyrations! Make Some NOISE!!! - Psalm 100:1

Musical Term of the Day:
jubiloso – exulting, rejoicing
Psalm 100:1
Make a JOYFUL noise unto the Lord, all ye lands!
Joyful Gyrations!  MAKE SOME NOISE!!!  
Today, I just want to MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE UNTO THE LORD in digital land! 
My family and friends who know me, live and in color, are very clear that the scope of my personality cannot be fully experienced through my online presence.  I am not ashamed and I make no apologies for that because that is how the good Lord made me.  I rejoice that He saw fit to give me a JOYFUL personality. I know that I am not the only person in this world who has been blessed with such a gift.  However, I am the ONLY person who has written this blog since its inception, so this is the platform the Lord has granted to me and I will use it to bring Him all the glory -joyfully! 
On yesterday, a very dear brother of mine told me that he was reading my blog regularly but he was waiting for me to talk about current events, hot topics in the news, popular concerns in the Facebook news feed.  OK.  So maybe he did not say what he said exactly that way but it sounds so much better written that way.  Anyway, my reply to him and to a few others who have expressed the same sentiment was this:  That is not what SALVATION & STILETTOS is about and I have not been inspired to express my thoughts about those issues in MY space.  Ladies and Gents, let’s take it back for one moment.  AND I QUOTE…
"Let me tell you right now. If you are looking for the latest gossip or commentary on things that happen in the news, this is NOT that place. I do not intend to shock or insult or condemn. I am writing because it brings me JOY and I hope in some small way to inspire and encourage you along your journey as I reflect on thoughtful quotes or moving passages from what I believe to be the divine in Scripture and in me."
Friends, I write about what inspires me.  I am daily inspired by the Word of God and the ways in which we can read the Word from a fresh and faithful perspective everyday.  I want you all to know that writing this blog everyday brings me JOY! I do not write out my thoughts days in advance.  I do not use additional resources unless otherwise noted in order to write my blog.  I do not copy and paste from somebody else. Every word that has been shared on SALVATION & STILETTOS has been a fresh email from the Holy Ghost through me to you.  YES, I do keep a daily journal but THIS platform is NOT where I share it.  ALL that I write here is in addition to the writing I have done between me and God that you may never see.  The most that I might know in the mornings is a scripture OR the name of the post OR the first line OR the main idea.  I rarely have all of my ducks in a row when I prepare to write. Before I write every morning, I pray and I worship and I ask the Lord to feed me first.  Then I wait and at other times I flow writing into the moment.  My friends, this is my JOY!
I will also share this with you.  I have now been writing something new for over forty days and I do not know how much longer I will continue to write fresh every day.  I do not know if at some point I will write only a few days a week or once a week or how the pattern will emerge over time. All I know is that, I am called to write AND in this season, I am compelled to write EVERYDAY.  So, I am clear that in this season, if I do not write, it is because I am being lazy or I am not listening for the sound of the genuine within me.
BlogFam, I am often told how much my reflections on the WORD inspires you, reminds you and even challenges you to think about it from a different perspective.  I am grateful to GOD, first, for choosing to use my gift for His Glory and I am grateful to ALL OF YOU for choosing to read what I write.  Writing brings me JOY and to know that God is glorified and you are edified makes it ALL worth the early morning 2-3 hour sacrifice!
Today, I want to totally encourage YOU to do what brings you JOY EVERYDAY!  WHY NOT? The most joyful noise we can make unto the Lord is when we have used the gifts and talents He placed inside of us  before we came forth out of our mother’s wombs.  What greater way to THANK GOD for your life than to surrender your life to God and then to JOYFULLY express yourself using what you were given from birth!?!?! 
Today, I pray that you would make a JOYFUL noise unto the Lord by using what you already have!  Today, I pray that you would make a JOYFUL noise by unashamedly expressing your gifts for God’s glory!  Today, I pray that the Light of Christ would shine through you as you use your gifts to brighten someone else’s day!  Today, I pray that you would NOT be ashamed of what brings you JOY but that you would keep it 100 and flow in the Spirit like ONLY YOU know how to do!
My sistas and brothas, I pray that your JOYFUL noise would come from the depths of your soul and that your JOYFUL noise would reverberate with echoes that heaven will honor and that earth will NOT ignore! Make YOUR JOYFUL noise TODAY!!! 
Friends, Writing brings me JOY and today, I pray that my noise has inspired you!
God Loves You and I do too!
