Proverbs 21:21 (AMP):
21 He who earnestly seeks after and craves righteousness, mercy, and loving-kindness will find life in addition to righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) and honor.
Be encouraged today and know that if you desire to live righteous before the Lord and if it is in your heart to do right concerning everything in your life and toward others, you will find a more enriched life in Him. He will see to it that you are accomodated and that you will have a position and right standing with Him personally. There is no higher position in life than to be in right-standing with God.
“Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee” Jeremiah 32:17

Be encouraged today and know that if God can create the heaven and earth by his power, he can certainly handle our situations and circumstances.
“For I desired mercy, and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings.” Hosea 6:6
Don’t worry about “jumping through hoops” in life. Be cautious of tradition and live by the word and the knowledge of God. Sacrifice and burnt offerings are great, but they can represent a self-righteous state of mind and living in God’s true will can get “lost in the shuffle” of life. The mercy of God is available and the knowledge and wisdom of God are unshakeable.
“Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man’s behalf! Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!” Psalm 66:5, 20

The Lord has done marvelous things from the beginning of the world to right this minute. Give him praise and thank him for all that he has done for you. Praise be to God who still answers prayers and who still loves us. Bring your concerns to the Lord today. He loves you and is available to help you. You are part of his awesome works and is available to work on your behalf.
“Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.” Psalms 43: 5
“Those who thirst for God and yearn for a greater manifestation of his presence may experience delay. Yet the faithful believer will continue thirsting for and seeking God. The Lord promises to bless those who hunger and thirst for righteousness rather than settle for less than his full blessing(Matthew5:6) In the midst of God’s silence, we must continue to press on to know God and to experience a greater measure of the Holy Spirit. We must not despair but, put our hope in God and trust in his unfailing love.” (Study Notes NIV)
I choose to put my trust in God who is the hope of my life. I have to admit that God’s timing seems to take so long compared to when I want what has been promised to me, but he knows best and is working it out. My soul becomes tired and weary and does not understand that concept. As my soul waits for the promises and blessings of God I am to continue to give God the praise that he so richly deserves, while also doing his will.
Take time today to tell the one(s) that you love them. I want to take time to say that I love and appreciate all of our visitors and partners of Notes of Inspiration! That is all! Patrice Tankard
Much love to you always! Patrice Tankard

“This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 119:24
Take time today to give God thanks for being alive. This is the day that God created. You will never see this day again, so rejoice and be glad in the day that you are in. Be happy and know that you have another chance to be productive. You have another chance to get it right. You have another chance to change your life or uplift the lives or others. Rejoice and be glad in this day and everyday that you live.
“An anxious heart weighs a man down, but a kind word cheers him up.” Proverbs 12:25
There is something about the way we perceive life and situations that can either make us or break us. If we see our circumstances as worrisome events, then our perception will bring a burden to our minds and hearts. We have to be careful how we view challenges and find a way to understand that challenges make us grow.
Words can help bring comfort to oneself and to others. Speaking kind words can do wonders for the heart and soul of mankind. It’s so powerful that the atmosphere surrounding the situation can began to change. If you see someone who is downhearted, say kind words to help pick him up. I have not seen it fail. Speaking kind words, even to strangers can bring contentment and joy to them. You will notice how their faces light up with happiness and appreciation. The person will feel better and you will too. Try it!
Take time out and do the things that enhance your life and make you happy. Share it with others. Attending music productions make me happy. Meeting new people in my field makes me happy. This year has been a fantastic year for that. I have traveled and flown around the country to attend productions, meet producers and artists and have developed valuable friendships that will last a life time. I have also had a chance to participate in a television production with Bravo TV. I learned so much about TV production, lightning, directing, music, stage production and I met a few celebrities. I have been blessed and summoned to participate in even more productions in 2015. All praises go to God for the opportunities. Take time out for yourself and experience the happiness that you deserve by embracing your talents, hobbies and interests. ~Patrice Tankard #ThickerThanWater #BravoTV #MusicProducer #MediaPersonality
