Music Video of the Day: CeCe Winans – More Than What I Wanted

Every morning it’s the same ritual for me. Wake up and say Good morning Lord ! I  take my prescribed medication for the RA and turn on the morning news. I wait  about 45 minutes for the meds to kick in and then I get out of the bed. But this isn’t the ritual that I referred to, this is a regimen. I’m looking forward to the part of the morning when I can start my ritual!

I (or maybe my mom) make my Caramel Macchiato coffee and go outside. I take a look at the beauty of the nature and really appreciate it.  I usually do it the same way – everyday. Read some scripture – check. Select a playlist that fits the way I feel at the time – check. Put on the wireless headphones (a gift from my baby brother) and then the best part begins. I turn on the music and tune out the world. 

Anyone who knows me well will tell you how much I love my music. I’ve got to have it. To me it’s the same as the other medications I have to take for my physical condition and just as important. Those pills keep me keep me out of pain and get me to the point where I can move on with my day. Well the same thing is true for me when it comes to listening to my music. It’s spiritual medicine for me; and music enables me to get my soul ready for the day. If necessary to act as a pain killer, my music is very effective. It’s the one cure all that no one is allergic to.

“Forever I’ll live right , Forever I’ll love right , Forever for You ( Lord you’re worthy oh so worthy ) Forever and ever “

CeCe Winans


I’m sharing a music video of CeCe Winans with you today and I hope you enjoy it. I just love artists like CeCe whose music lyrics are so based in scripture. It’s literally like having a Praise & Worship service except you’re not inside of the church ! That’s always a great way to get out of yourself and your situation; and into the presence of God ! It doesn’t even have to be Praise & Worship music for me to get what I need for the day. Anything that lifts my spirits and puts me in a good frame of mind will do.

I just wanted to share something with you today that would hopefully make you smile. For some crazy reason I felt like sharing a music video.

The song is amazing and even though it’s not a new one of CeCe’s , I still love it. More Than What I Wanted may sound like a love song (and it is) but the song is really about the love of God. I’ll admit though , it also makes me think of my late husband too. But the lyrics are about how God’s love is whole and completely beyond anything we could ever want or expect. The type of love that is enduring, unconditional, unchanging and unfailing! I can’t adequately describe the love I have in The Lord ! The best way to describe it is agape love. 

Agape (Ancient Greek: ἀγάπη, agápē) is “love: the highest form of love, charity; the love of God for man and of man for God.” Not to be confused with “philēo” – brotherly love – agápē embraces a universal, unconditional love that transcends, that serves regardless of circumstances.

Author:

I'm a writer, blogger and the author of book Facing Goliath. Licensed & Ordained 96 National Chaplains Association. Christian and unapologetically Democrat. Widow, daughter and the sister of two extraordinary gentlemen. For the past 27 years I have battled a chronic autoimmune disease called Severe Rheumatoid Arthritis. As a result, I've had 13 surgeries and been in and out of rehab (nursing homes) since the age of 26. I've also been addicted to alcohol and abused my opioid pain medication. Of course I had a good mix of sunshine and rain. Eventually somewhere along the way I came to realize that God had a better life intended for me. That's when I stopped being overwhelmed and started overcoming! Since then I have experienced more joy and peace than I could've ever expected. That's also when I realized that my mess was my message. My message ( or at least my focus ) is that of overcoming adversity in the Christian life and communicating the advantages of hardship and obstacles. I believe that my life has given me a unique perspective on the subject. This is the mission that the Lord has given me : to enlighten, inspire and encourage others. I'm a spiritual being having an earthly experience ! So that means that it's important for us not to be so spiritually minded that we're of no earthly good! Simply put I want to have a positive impact on people's lives by sharing love (not judgement). As Muhammed Ali said 'doing good is the price you pay for the life you have on earth '(paraphrased). If I was given the choice of being a millionaire over being able to positively change lives of others - I'd choose the latter because you can't put a value on the eternal benefits of a life in the service of Christ.
