Praise Him in different languages!

I watched this amazing praise chant by a woman called Funke Akinokun and I just had to stand in awe of this majestic God!

What an awesome wonder He is..

See if your language is represented :-) .. And most importantly, join in the praise.. God deserves it and MORE! xx

Let's lift Him up in Igbo! What do You call Him?

... So we started off with His praise chant in English HERE and then moved on to Yoruba HERE.. It's time to do it the Eastern Nigerian way! Igbo kwenu!

Isn't God just amazing?? The way He's created so many languages, yet still understands every single one of them.. And you know what? He understands even the unspoken words - The language of the heart, the language of the sigh, the language of the tears and the language of the smile.. PRAISE HIS AWESOMENESS!

Here goes.. Please delight in the praise of our Father in Heaven.. (with translations)

Eze Ebubu (King of glory)

Omalicha Chukwu (Beautiful God)

Ogwo ngbe oyiri dibia (The God that performs when magicians fail)

Thanks to my dear friend who helped with the names and translation..

Lift up the name of the GREATEST KING!

This JESUS - No law could hold Him down

I wish I wrote the following 'poem of praise'! I remember when I first heard it being recited, I was like WOW!!! In my native Yoruba language, we have what we call 'oriki'.. A chant of high praise to God.. Now I call this an English 'oriki'.. If you like, you can read it out loud in a personal 'show' for the King of Kings..

Join me as we lift this King who defies laws and orders.. Nothing can restrain or contain the MOST HIGH!

Please enjoy this excerpt from a MEGA talented creation of the Amazing God.. This man's talent is one more proof that God is real.. You can read the full version HERE or go to www.ucheiloka.org for his full works.

No Law Could hold Him Down - Uche Iloka

And we have found laws, both natural and man-made
Trapped in ink...black and white and all of man inadvertently, subject to these laws
But on the streets of this one book, I met a certain man
And none of these laws could Him down

I read about the law of conception which requires the seed of a man in the womb of a woman before any given woman can conceive and bring forth a child.
But what manner of man is this?
For He required not the agency of a man,
But by the seed of a pure Ghost,
He was conceived in the womb of His virgin mother
And was born to this world in human flesh
Alive and well
For no law could hold Him down

What about the law of rigor mortis
It states that barely a few moments after the occurence of death, the deceased body shall become stiff and inflexible
But what manner of man is this?
For it weren't a few moments, but four days after the death of His friend
He went to the entrance of the tomb and called out to he that were dead as though he were alive
LAZARUS!!!!! Come forth He said
And he that was dead came hopping out flexing both joint and muscles, for rigor mortis could not hold him down
For no law could hold Him down.

What about the indisputable law of death
The law states that it is appointed unto all men once to die
And that my friend, they say, is a point of no return
But what manner of man is this?
But before the eyes of many witnesses he was laid in the tomb
His hair matted with blood
His eyes shut, his hands folded on his breast
His lips, seeming forever silent
And a heavy stone was even rolled against the entrance of the grave
Permit me to err in English, He was very dead!
But that's not how the story ends
For on the third day, early Sunday morning
Behold there was a mighty earthquake
For the angel of the Lord had descended for the heavens
And they watched as he rolled away the heavy stone as one would kick a tiny little pebble
And out of the grave, this man called JESUS came out!
Proclaiming over the sepulchre
Oh death where is thy sting, and oh grave where is thy victory
For not even death can hold Him captive, even in the grave He is Lord
And no law can hold Him down!

Glory, Glory Halleluyah!! Aren't you just excited that nothing can hold your King down????!! If nothing can hold Him down, be rest assured that nothing can hold YOU down!! xxxx

His name is.... JESUS!!!

And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name JESUS. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom, there will be no end. 
(Luke 1:31-33)

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace, there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His Kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgement and justice from that time forward, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.
(Isaiah 9:7)



.... Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.
(John 1:29)

And being found in the appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him a name which is above every name, that at the name of JESUS, every should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, and that every tongue should confess that JESUS CHRIST is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
(Philippians 2:8-11)

(Bless the Lord - Son of man) - Tye Tribbett

This song WILL bless you!

Another favourite of mine by a man that I lovee Tye Tribbett.. He is just a funky fly fresh worshipper!

Get your bopping heads on and your dancing feet steady..

Bless the Lord oh my soul!! And all that is within me!! Yup yup!!

Enjoy xx

Son of man, Son of God!

 source

Jesus is the Son of God!

In Him is the fullness of our heavenly Father.. He is the word of God made flesh. He was there in the beginning, at creation with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit and He is God!

Awesome God.

I worship You I am that Iam. My once and for all sacrifice that is as relevant as always.

The Son of God that sits on the right hand of our Father in heavan and intercedes on my and your behalf!

The Son of God that gave Himself as the sacrificial lamb that all may come to a relationship without barriers with the Father. The Son of God that gave up the glory of heaven to take on the form of man that I may become joint heirs with Him and boldy call on God  "Abba Father"

The Son of God who became the son of man to endure the cross for my sake so that I may have full access to the riches of the Father. So that I, who was born in sin and full of sin may be forgiven and cleansed and free from guilt and shame. The Son of God who became the son of man to bear the pain and shame of the cross and bore my sins on His shoulders that I may be acquitted and dsicharged of every thing that I ever or will ever do wrong.. WOW!

The Son of God who is high and lifted up! The Son of God who is great and greatly to be praised. The Son of God who deserves all the worship.

Thank You for the cross - I know that I can never repay You nor show enough appreciation to you.

Today Lord, I ascribe greatness to You -  Precious Son of the Living God!

The Lord God ALMIGHTY - Jehovah Elshaddai!

 source

Elshaddai, Elshaddai
Elohim and Adonai
Age to Age You're still the same
By the power of Your name..

I stand bold to claim that there is NOTHING that my God cannot do!!!!

Can You say the same?? No other God compares to my God!

All power in heaven and on earth belongs to Him.. He speaks and no one can argue with Him, no one can contend with Him! He is the Almighty God!

Have you not heard? That the Elshaddai reigns? That He reigns in heaven and rules in the affairs of men? That He his able to kill and make alive?

That He is beautiful beyond description, too marvellous for words? That He is mighty in battle, mighty in grace, mighty in love? That He is altogether lovely, altogether compassionate, altogether wonderful!

My God. The Almighty God who draws water from a rock and makes rivers in the desert, the One who parted the red sea with only the blast of His nostrils.. The mighty ocean had to bow to THE ALMIGHTY GOD!

That 'mighty' problem will have no choice but to acknowledge and bow to the ALMIGHTY GOD.

.. I bow to the ALMIGHTY GOD! Gloryy!

Comforter

My dearest Daddy,

My best friend, my eternal Champion!

Thank You for being so good to me. Thank You for shining Your wonderful light in every darkness that I could ever face!

My heart is full of such love for you.

You are the One who knows how to comfort in such a way that no one else can. Thank You because my troubles are never too trivial for You. Everything that is important to me is of great importance to You.

I remember a popular song 'Sweet Mother' that we sing with glee and nostalgia when we celebrate the awesome sacrifice of a mother. I will borrow a few words
When I no chop, my mother no go chop
When I no sleep, my mother no go sleep...
E no dey tire eyy, sweet mother,
I no go forget the suffer wey you suffer for me ey ey

Sweet Holy Spirit, this song reminds me of a fraction of the kind of sacrificial love that You have for me...

Not only do you not sleep when I'm unwell.. You don't sleep at ALL! You are the One who never sleeps nor slumber... Your eyes are always on me! ALWAYS ALWAYS!! I never leave Your sight!

You are wonderful.. You comfort me when I am down and out, You give the kind of peace that is beyond all human comprehension. The comfort of your peace in times of loss, in times of lack, in times of defeat is indescribable.

And the most amazing thing is that your comfort comes with relief.. Sweet sweet relief!

Thank You Comforter.. You totally Rock!

Your forever girl,
One xx

The Good Shepherd



The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.

Today, I celebrate my Good Shepherd! The best any girl could ask for.

Daddy, thank You for the way You tend to me with such love and unrivalled attention. You make me feel better than a million dollars (and that feels good!)

Thank You for protecting me, for covering me, for loving me, for doing all it takes to look out for me, when I get lost. As the GOOD Shepherd that You are, you ensure that I lack no good thing.

Thank You for leading me, for guiding me and ensuring that not only do I get to my destination, I get there unscathed.. Despite all the storms and fires that life throws at me, You ensure that I 'dey kampe'

Thank You Baba, I'm forever grateful.

I can only imagine - Mercy Me

I remember the first time I had the privilege of hearing this song in church.. I fell in absolute love with the words of the song.

You know, the after-life or life after death is not one that we often think of, or at least that we often like to think of.. But knowing and having Jesus as Lord and Saviour makes a big difference to what our prospect of it should be like..

It has now been translated from fear to hope, trepidation to anticipation. I tell you, you need not live in fear and anxiety any longer.. There is a beautiful promise for us in Christ..

Worship God with me as we go on an amazing 'wonder-filled' dream of what it would mean to finally meet with our Lord..

Enjoy! xx

Author and Finisher of my Faith

The beginning and the end of my very existence!

My faith in You is what sustains me, what keeps me going.

Thank You for making it possible to have a relationship with You, thank You for making a way for me to be a beneficiary of your amazing grace

You made the grand plan for my salvation and that of every human being - if only they would choose to freely access your free gift - and I trust You, You will finish the great work that You have started. I look forward to eternity with You!

One Thing remains (Your love never fails) - Jesus Culture

Wow.. THIS song!
I could sing of the love of Jesus forever and this song right here is one of worship but also a reassurance and affirmation that the Love of God never fails, it never gives up and it never ever runs out! WOWWW!!

Thank You Jesus..

Enjoy! xx



In death, in life
I'm confident and covered
By the power of Your great love
My debt is paid
There's nothing that can separate my heart
From Your GREAT love!
(Bridge)
(I love eeet!)

There is a.... Balm in Gilead!


Most powerful GOD!

Your name is love, your name is Father, Abba Father..

I love the way You handle me, the way You love me, the way You care about me. I love the way that only You can comfort. There is a unique way that only You know how to reach and touch the very depth, the very core of a human being.

Thank You my Balm in Gilead for wiping my tears and soothing my heart from every heartbreak, disappointment and let-down.

Thank You my Balm in Gilead for providing the best and sure remedy to every illness and ailment. Thank You for mending every hurt, every physical and emotional pain and leaving no scar behind.

You heal and you heal completely, you soothe and you soothe completely. With You I have more than I could ever need.

Why would You not have all my worship? Take it, it's Yours alone.

You're Beautiful - Soul Survivor

I love this song so much!

It makes for a great fantastic worship experience of my beautiful, beautiful Saviour..

Enjoy! xx

Saviour - My Hero!

It is such a great feeling to have a Saviour!

Everyone needs saving - that's the truth and nothing but the truth. To think that my Jesus, my Lord thought it nothing to give Himself up to be crucified so that He can save me from my sins!

Master of the universe, most girls dream of their gorgeous knights in shining armour riding cross-country, with a sword in hand on a magnificent white horse, charging to rescue them and I have better, much better...

A glorious and handsome King, the most beautiful of all, His name is Beautiful, riding on the wings of the cloud, with His word more powerful than a two-edged sword, from heaven above come to rescue me from the clutches of the worst kinds of evil.. including death!

 source

You alone gave me eternal life, You alone saved me from the hands of death and the fear of it.. to bring me into life everlasting, joy everalsting, peace everlasting, love everlasting!

Beautiful Saviour, I live in awe of You.

Emmanuel - I'm grateful


One of the most wonderful things about the great God that I serve is that even though He is so awesome and so magnificent, He chooses to live in the hearts of His children.

You know, it's so amazing that the King of Kings, the greatest authority, the One who is the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the One whose throne is in heaven and whose footstool is the earth, the One who owns all things - the earth and the fullness thereof, the One who commands the morning, the One who calls things that are not as though they were, the immortal, invincible, only wise God loves my company - wow!

Super-power God, I thank You so much for being with me at all times. True to your word, You never ever leave me, neither do you forsake me at any point in time!

You are GOD with us - Emmanuel!
