Wow!!! What an amazing weekend we had. I’ve been a bit overwhelmed so I haven’t been able to blog.
As in …
I kept feeling like this
I’m sure you felt it too.
You weren’t there?
How do I help you now? How could you have missed the entire thing?
Okay let me try and recap.
So it began with
#WhenWomenPray with Imisioluwa Owolabi
It was totally amazing! We prayed, we sang, new songs were born, Gifts of the Spirit released and a clear move of the spirit. So of course I was already pumped and excited ready for #WhenWomenWorship.
So on Friday the day began in a surreal way. I was taking a shower and praying in tongues. suddenly I saw a host of angels flying in formation with swords. I particularly noticed the angel in lead because his sword was blazing golden light then I heard “because of your worship there’s war in the heavenlies”
So of course very excited, I headed out early. Thanks to @bellickscollections who made me a lovely top and @dochiglam who came out really early even though it was so last minute to make me up and style my gorgeous #tsejuwig by @tsejuhair1.
It literally takes a village.
Okay so back to my gist. So I got there on Friday and my team and I sent everyone out of the hall, shut the doors and began to pray. As we moved around the hall praying, suddenly the guys setting up the light goal post began to stagger
So reflex I reached out to help the guys putting it up steady it, the Holy Spirit said “move it’s going to fall” and before you could say When Women Worship, the goal post fell …in slow motion! Right where blessing, kemi (miss Shittu) and Imisi (who had come out to pray with us) were standing.
Just imagine what a disaster it would have been. Wiping out my guest minister from the last two days, my assistant, and one of our ministers for the evening?
I was in shock but very thankful because all I could think was what if it fell during the meeting? What if there were people in the hall? But I wasn’t letting myself or my team get distracted. I knew it was one of the battles won. Hallelujah!
Next we moved onto the stage and began to pray in tongues. After a while I heard in my spirit Daniel 3. So I flipped out my phone and quickly the Holy Spirit showed me satan was after our worship. So I told the ladies what I felt God was saying “Satan will send fire but if we don’t bow then the fourth man will show up in the fire.” I didn’t fully understand it though but I shared with the ladies, we prayed and moved on.
As we were going about our business, we heard a cackling sound. Next thing we know one of our screens was on fire. As in literal fire not fire of the Holy Ghost o!
So one screen went blank. By this time I was laughing. We had the victory. Even before the meeting had begun because just imagine fire in a room full of women.
I wasn’t even moved in fact I was tickled. How can you be so stupid? If God has warned me about fire doesn’t it make sense to send something else? Like maybe rain or wind but to send fire?! That’s just hilarious.
4.40 pm we kicked off with this amazing opener. A mashup of Hillsong’s “So Will I (100 billion x) / Cory Ashbury’s “Reckless Love” /No longer Slaves. Sung By Joimor and Chisom
I honestly thought it couldn’t get any better till Rock Xtreme got on stage. What?! The dance had me praying in tongues with tears pouring down my face. It was like heaven showing me the heart of God toward me as Israel Houghton belted out his version of Reckless love. The minute Marknjumped over mountains I knew I was done for the night and the evening hadn’t even begun.
Right after that my welcome video came up on the one good screen left. 😂😂
Thankfully there was a pre-videoed welcome because I was in no shape to come up the stage. I was undone already. Empty of self.
Our first minister came up
Minister Wole Adesanya (Mr Wols)
And something unusual happened. Now he had been around really early to do a sound check and he did a full hour rehearsal. He even sent us lyrics to the songs he would be ministering before hand but as he got on stage he only sang two songs and we couldn’t find the lyrics anywhere. Why? They weren’t the songs he sent us.
At that point the Holy Spirit reminded me of His promise to us earlier that he would totally takeover that even the ministers wouldn’t be able to stand to minister
He reeled off a couple of words of knowledge then handed back the mic. I stood there shocked thinking is he done?
Then the Holy Spirit said to me “anything more would not be A SOUND! It would be NOISE!!!”
then he reminded me “there will be no celebrities in the room. Every one is here to worship ME”
After that it was a tag team
Folabi Nuel came up next
then TY Bello
To be honest with you, it was literal fire. The Holy Ghost took over. People praying in new tongues, prophesying, slain in the spirit. God walked into the room and we beheld his glory
Oh! What a night and to think we expected it to be just another When Women Worship
When I was welcoming the guests I had no idea how intense it would be. At the end of the meeting i kept hearing in my spirit I’m releasing twins. So I prayed with those trusting God for babies. I cannot wait to share our testimonies. #40miraclepregnancies.
It was a beautiful night
So anyhow of course by this time we had some expectations for Sunday. We went home so full of the presence of God. Some people couldn’t stop praying in tongues. I kept thinking Sunday? Lord I can’t wait.
But God wasn’t done with me yet….
When I got home something unusual happened. BlesSING, kemi (miss Shittu) and my baby sister diche spent the night at my house. So after we gisted a bit we all went to bed. Next thing I wake up in the middle of the night to pee. I’m hearing people praying in tongues with tambourines. I’m thinking “oh! So these girls are praying and they left me to sleep” so I barge into their room and wait for it….
They are all sound asleep. I thought I was losing my mind. I went back into my room I’m hearing it again loud and clear so I feel like maybe they are playing pranks. (Why I would think that only heaven knows 😂😂) So I wait a bit then barge in again. Still nothing. I go downstairs nothing. Then the Holy Spirit said to me that’s your spirit praying. My God!!!!
I knew Sunday would be out of this world. And Sunday was…
but I think it was the pre-worship conversations that I had that Prepped me for the main event. Such a beautiful fellowship before fellowship
Long before doors were open the entire place was full of women in shalom teeshirts
The hall was filled to the gallery
Openers were the same but not in any way the same. As soon as Joimor began to sing there was an electric current that seemed to permeate the room by the time Chisom joined her “Jesus!!!!!”
It was just the opener but women were already worshipping all over the room.
Hmmm.., I knew it would be an intense night. I could already feel it.
So by the time Rock Xtreme got on stage it was 🔥 fire 🔥
Then the evening really began. I will just let the pictures do the talking.
We laughed, we cried, we danced,
Hands raised, hearts bowed it was getting more intense. God was raising us a sound
Encounters all over the room. Even my amazing designer @dafscourt who made the lovely kimono I was wearing was not left out 😊
God wasn’t done though
Musicians were not left out
By the time I got on stage to close the meeting my heart was full
but one thing remained. God told me it would be a consecration service. So we handed over our hearts,
And lives to Jesus.
By this time the glory was so strong I could no longer stand
By the time I stood up I received my Miracle.
I had asked for only one thing at this year’s When Women Worship. A heart that loves like Jesus.
And boy was my heart full
I felt love for God’s daughters like never before. I saw their beauty and how precious they are to him. I was undone in a good way
I wish I could go round and give each one of them a big squishy ‘God loves you princess’ hug
Since I couldn’t they hugged each other for me.
I’ve tried my absolute best to share what happened on that night but trust me you cannot keep missing these meetings. It just isn’t the same.
Before you run along let me share my absolute best moment of the evening. It was a brief moment when folabi Nuel left the stage to get his guitar and the stage was empty but so full at the same time ….
That moment right there…
… Jesus took the stage
Love you my darlings.
I will be back soon
This post would not be complete if I don’t thank my amazing son Avril @the_mistergrey for all the beautiful pictures he took. God blessyou honey #theavrilmagic.
