For a very long, i didnt think I could really sing not to talk about writing songs. Even when my pastor would ask us in the choir when we were going to release individual albums, I would literally look over my shoulder because I just felt I wasn’t one of those he was referring to.

Early last year i kept feeling a strong nudging that God wanted to take our relationship to another level and i kept resisting somehow. So early last year during one of our prayer meetings in church, i just prayed “Lord I agree with everything you want to do with me. I surrender my will to you. Use me as you wish.”

Na so ooo, before long whenever I am praying whether at home or in the office, I would just begin to sing songs and I would always feel like they were songs I had heard somewhere.

Later I realised I was getting songs inspired by the spirit since no one around me had heard the songs before.

So, the night before one of our meetings, we were getting the hall ready and I said to Kemi “I better pick my word now before i forget tomorrow when I am carried away with work during the program”. So I picked this word,

“You will receive a double measure of wealth instead of your shame. You will SING about your wealth instead of being disgraced. That is why you will have a double measure of wealth in your land. You will have everlasting Joy.” Isaiah 61:7 (GWT)

What!!!!!!

How could God say that to me when He knew I was struggling in my heart with my singing and song writing insecurities?

How could God say to me that for every time i have felt shame that I would receive a double measure of wealth? That I would be so blessed I would have to sing about it instead of experiencing disgrace? That my Joy would last forever?

Wow!!! All I can say is that My God truly sees me and I will forever be grateful. Now, I am confident in the approval I have received from God. Now I am willing to release the songs He has given me not fearing shame or disgrace. He has also sent some amazing people into my life that keep pushing me and help me polish the gift. This God ehhh…..

That’s how God can take your insecurity, turn it into something beautiful and make you a wonder to your world.

****************************************

Whoop! Whoop!!! We all await the release of the songs oh!

Isn’t God just amazing, he’s always so Apt! Just gives you the right word that addresses the very thing you’re going through. Just to show you that he is God and he’s ontop of your matter!

Like how much more accurate could this word be, double measure of wealth, and she’ll sing about it!

Ahhhh!! God is…. enough.

He’s everything I need or will ever need, and like blessing said that’s how he takes your insecurities and turns it into something beautiful and makes you a wonder to your world.

Are you ready to hand over everything to God today, trust him and receive a double measure?

See you same time tommorw guys
