…annnnnnnd we’re back to recap another great episode of TMCS.
But Sunday wasn’t just any episode, it was the Easter Sunday special and guess what? It was the 1st Anniversary of The Moore Chante Show!! That’s right, one year ago today, our favorite girl brought us into her living room, into her life and into her mind to enjoy what everyone now knows as TMCS Ice Cream Sundays! She confessed that she felt nervous excitement, while preparing for and at the start of Sunday’s show, considering its significance. If you ask me, that’s awesome, especially since she makes her living, performing for thousands on any given day. It’s a reminder that she’s human. She described this episode as “amazing and wonderful, all at the same time…”.
She reiterated that Sunday was Easter; the day that He (Jesus Christ) rose from the dead, having been crucified for our sins and salvation, just days prior. She reminded that if He had just died, it would not have been enough.
He had to rise.
After her first song, she encouraged that we not be afraid to worship where we are and that all He wants is our heart, first. He wants us to grow up. What’s awesome about that, is that as we grow, I’ve learned that self-awareness accompanies that growth, which translates to a better level of understanding, of how we can better serve Him.
While explaining the thought behind TMCS, she shared that during its inception her original intention was to put on a one-day show. After some thought, she decided to do it for that month. Of course the superstar in her took over and sistah-gurlllll made a thang out of it! A weekly show! She said that through it all, each of us was on her heart, every week. As a result, she prays for us constantly and tries to pick songs that draw us closer to her and ultimately to Christ.
Let that circumambulate your mind and heart for a bit. In her efforts to entertain and engage us, she wants to bring us all closer to the Lord. If that ain’t a prime example of utilizing your skills for all the right reasons, I don’t know what is.
She reflected on the on-the-job training of raising children, along with the blessing of having them in her life (for the benefit of you all who are waiting to have children of your own and those of you who’ve somehow forgotten after you kicked them out of the house). She talked about the instinct and channeling the methods demonstrated by her own mother at times when she felt inadequate. She said that her mother taught her how to love and how to be a good parent, to be attentive, how to give her herself and not be afraid…
She said that that was what Easter was about: God loving us so much that He GAVE. He decided to come, to live and dwell, in human form. She expressed she believed that the Father, the Son AND the Holy Ghost all co-existed in one form, in Jesus Christ.
Special Announcement: Chante is now on Clubhouse, so if you get an invitation, be sure to join and look for her!
Chante’s Inscription Of Inspiration For The Week
1 Peter 1:3
(NKJV) 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,
Note: Chante did not provide a scripture for this week’s show, but considering everything she shared, I felt it fitting to use this passage. I hope you all will forgive me for selecting this, if you disagree with my choice. Please know that it was conveyed with my sincerest love.
- “King Of Glory” by Todd Delaney (A splendid way of opening the show. Her beautifully soft song of praise and reverence only better illustrated her desire to serve God in everything she does. And man, she does it so well. I read the comments of several people who joyfully admitted that she’d brought them to tears, right out of the gate.)
- “Lord, You’re Mighty” by Youthful Praise (During her monologue introduction to this she reminded us that we serve a Mighty God. Funny, as self-explanatory as his omnipotence and omnipresence are, it never hurts to be reminded of it from others.)
- “Jesus, I Want You” by Chante Moore (From the 2013 Moore Is More album, written by her sister LeTendre. She revealed that this song is the sentiment of her heart. She said that she gets lost in her own emotions sometimes, but when that happens she has to tell herself that it’s Jesus who she wants. More tears in the audience. We know this…)
- “The Vow” by RuthAnne (It’s amazing how love sustains us; how it strengthens us.)
- “Close To You” by The Carpenters (Over time, this has proven to be one of the most comforting songs ever recorded. To be lulled by our girl is the most succinct, yet lasting pleasure. Hey! Who’s in the kitchen, cutting onions?!? I’m trying to write this blog while listening to this song! Stop it!)
- “The Blood Will Never Lose Its Power” by Andre Crouch (She told us that the Blood of Jesus is what it’s all about. Appropriately referenced in this song. If you were listening, you know good and doggone well that she “took us to chuhch” with this one! That ain’t no typo either. We went to CHUHCH!)
- “Better Than Good” by Todd Galberth (Her first time singing this, but this one was for HER and she told us that she was about to worship herself into a good place, inviting us to follow and praise along.)
- “It’s Alright” (A Capella snippet) by Chante Moore (A fitting way to close out the anniversary episode, with one of her most recognizable songs and my second favorite! [#1 is “Love’s Still Alright”, which I very much consider to be the sequel…)]
Finally, just like it all began, she closed out a year’s worth of healthy thoughts, laughs, guest appearances, personal beliefs, beauty tips, praise, inspiration and songs from her God-given talent…
…celebrating “Ice Cream Sunday”!
Lesson/Message For The Day (A special 5-pack of thoughts):
1. Praise Him wherever you are. Worship is not a spectator sport.
2. Every single morning is brand new mercy.
3. The hardest part is that I live what I believe. That’s the challenge for everyone.
4. Fear doesn’t stop death, it stops life. It stops you from living. (Not her own phrase, but something she felt was important enough to share during this episode.)
5. Your praise doesn’t have to be perfect, it just has to be from your heart.
I think I’ve just about covered it all. But if I missed anything, you know you got it the first time around. If any of you missed the show, you can always revisit it on her Instagram or Facebook page.
Then tune in the following Sunday…
…because as always, Sunday Is Chantday!
…and then bring it right back here so we can talk about it.
Happy Easter and Happy Anniversary everyone!!!
