A Glorious Giveaway

28 1

Sometimes you wake up and realize, “Life is Incredible.” That happened for me today.

Two and a half years ago I was sitting on a random street in L.A. talking life and music with my big bro, Roy Cotton. We were about to split when he said “I want you to hear this song of Niya’s and tell me what you think.”

It was still in the works, instruments played in his head that weren’t yet recorded, lyrics were still being figured out, but it was a great start. Honestly, I was just happy to know Niya was working on her own music again since at that point, it’d been over 6 years since her debut album, “Someday” released.

Today, that developing song I heard on that spring L.A. evening is now available for the world to hear! Because I’m so excited about it’s release and because the song is actually greatness, I’d like to do a giveaway!

The song is called “Morning Song (Glorious Day).” It speaks about the beauty of a new day with Jesus!

It released the morning after I had a challenging day yesterday. Waking up and listening to this song reminded me that:

  • God’s mercies are new every morning.
  • No matter what our circumstances, we have a reason to rejoice and give thanks.
  • It is my choice to rejoice in each new day
  • Life is an incredible gift

So today, I’m thankful because God has lifted the burdens of yesterday with a beautiful new morning. Thank you Jesus, my today will be different from my yesterday!

Now it’s your turn!

How to Win:

I’m going to gift “Morning Song” to 8 randomly selected people today!

  • Post a comment with one reason why you are thankful this new morning/day.
  • You have until morning hours are over in Los Angeles (since that’s where I first heard the song).

So leave a comment from now until 12pm PT/2pm CT/3pm ET and you could win!

Winners will be announced and the song will be sent to you this afternoon. Annnd Go!

“Satisfy us in the morning with your steadfast love, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days.” -Psalm 90:14

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” -Psalm 118:24

    I am grateful for enduring presence of lifelong friends, those beautiful diamonds God places in our lives to remind us of His powerful love for us. I am blessed with precious gems for friends, including my three adult children. We delight in, uplift, admonish, and encourage each other.

    I’m thankful that even though I’ve had my share of trials and tribulations, my God let’s me know that He’s not through with me yet. I have another chance to say, Thank you My Heavenly Father for all you have done, are doing and will continue to do in my life. I surrender all to Him! Another day, another chain broken, and another, and another….

    I am grateful and blessed to have been given the opportunity to reach the glorious age of 75! God has been so good to me. He has blessed me with family, friends and loved ones who sustain me when I am down (which is not often).)
    I count many blessings when I am in the presence of my Pastor and church family who are so loving and kind. God has blessed me with a husband for 56 years who is my best friend and confidant. We have 3 sons, 7 grand children and 6 great-grand children who are the love of my life. God is so good!!

    I am grateful for God’s Grace and mercy. He gave me the unmerited favor to turn 75 years of age on October 30th. I am well into my overflow and everyday is another favor from our Lord and Savior. Family, friends and loved ones sustain me and lift me in times when I feel down(which is not often). I feel blessed beyond measure when I am able to be with my church family. My grandchildren and great-grandchildren are the sunshine in my life. My husband of 56 years continues to be my best friend and confidant. God is so good and is the best thing that ever happened to me.

    I’m thankful to God for feeling better since not feeling well starting in August. I was in the hospital for a week, i left feeling so much better. I was able to go to my women’s conference that weekend after being discharged. I’m so thankful to a God that never leaves!!!!! I’m so thankful for this glorious reminder on this new day. 🙌

    The halfway point of 2012 began my season of change with being downsized from my position, in 2013 I lossed my Mom and decided to step down from the work I was doing with the ministry, in 2014 I went to the doctor for a routine exam and was called and told I had breast cancer, in August of the same year I lossed my Grandma but through all my losses, trials and uncertainties even to this day I can say IT’S A GLORIOUS DAY!!!

    On this new day, I am thankful that I get the awesome priviledge of pouring into people and being there for them. I get the chance to be the hands and feet of God on this earth and in my little circle of friends/students/coworkers/church fam. He reminded me last night that if I stay available, He will direct my path to help others. I woke up feeling blessed and honored.

    A year filled with sadness, death, disappointments, depression, uncertainty and heartbreak, I woke to say thank you Jesus for 22 years clean! Life is a roller coaster and the ride can be long and full of rough spots but I’m so thankful today because I am stronger and wiser! I have learned patience and tolerance! I have learned kindness and integrity! I have learned to love and not judge! Thank you to my family, friends and narcotics anonymous. Thank you to my little girl in me, Red, who endured so I could live and thank you God for seeing me worthy for another shit at life! It is truly a glorious day!
