This weeks Inspiration comes from the sassy songstress Miss. Jill Scott. This singer from Philadelphia has been on the music scene since 2000 with her debut album Who is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds Vol. 1. Since then Jill Scott has been gracing us with her soulful vocals with hit songs like Golden, A Long Walk and The Way. With her electrifying vocals and God given talents Jill Scott is perfect for Inspiration Mondays.
I woke up in the morning feeling fresh to death
I’m so blessed, yes yes
In her song Blessed from her album The Light Of The Sun this “pick me up”/ feel good song is perfect inspiration when you’re feeling down. Blessed reminds us that in all things remember how blessed you are and to be grateful for the small things. It is so easy for us to complain and take small things for granted. Often times when we think about blessings we think about them on a big scale and only consider things that are beneficial to us like getting a new job, a new house or a new car. Though those are all blessings we don’t always examine the smaller things as blessings. Like having the ability to move our limbs, and being able to wake up and endure another day of life. Even in things that we think are bad there are blessings in all things. I love this song because though it is simple in lyrical structure it is so powerful at the same time. It is really a feel good, fun and encouraging song!
I’m so blessed, yeah yes
Water in my face and everything is in its place
Peace of mind even my grace
