Even though Jill Scott is full love, peace and soul. In my mind it would'nt be to far off if she was a gospel artist. Based on her song lyrics I gather she can be sining about the love and power of GOD at any moment. Here's a break down of why in a few song lyrics that you might be familiar with. . .
He Loves Me (Lyzel In E Flat)
"You love me especially different every time, You keep me on my feet happily excited..." "You school me, give me some things to think aboutIgnite me, you invite me, you co-write me, you love me, you like me You incite me to chorus".
Clearly the joy of the lord incites us to chorus, and ignites us! Come on somebody! "
Verse: "He will not let your foot slip-- he who watches over you will not slumber;" - Psalm 121:3
"Pieces of me where scattered blowing in the cold in different directions truth be told" "Now I'm walking in the sunshine and everything feels so right, you went and put me back together again."
How many times has GOD's love put you back together. It makes you whole first. Am I telling a lie?
Verse: ‘For I will restore you to health And I will heal you of your wounds,’ declares the , ‘Because they have called you an outcast, saying: “It is Zion; no one cares for her.” - Jeremiah 30:17
"I'm holdin on to my freedom, can't take it from me I was born into it, it comes naturally. I'm strumming my own freedom, playing the GOD in me, Representin' his glory, hope He's proud of me."
Come on now!
Verse: It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. - Galatians 5:1
"And I’ve been letting Been letting some old ideas go I’m making room for my life to grow I just wanna be prepared." "I’ve been listening for God more, I’ve been doing my chores"
this sounds a lot like "being transformed by the renewing of your mind" but I'll mind my own business.
Verse: "but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead. I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” - Philippians 3:12
"You're a prize possession, not everybody's worthy Only reason I know is 'cause I headed down that road And it'd be a shame for you not to have your own glow c'mon."
Ladies we're worthy! GOD says so!
Verse: "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." - Proverbs 31:10
Anyway, Jill shares the gospel in her own way. I'm all the way here for it!
