Oriki: For my Master Lover

Alagbada ina,

the I AM 

who is clothed in fire

and makes the impossible possible,

the wait was long, Lord,

but thank you

for finally giving me

your unquestionable stamp of approval.

I love you, Love!

Despite my many failings,

You alone still fuel my fire,

and teach my soul

the art of being patient.

Thirty two tongues 

are not enough to thank you-

but my soul still sings:

bäṭam amäsäggänallähun!

Master Lover, my chief warrior,

bless the king and queens

who threw the honeycomb my way,

The bees will buzz

but I shall fear no evil.

May peace reign in Jerusalem.

Now, unto the next!

Death was arrested!


"Death Was Arrested"
Artist: Laura Story
Album: Open Hands
Released: 2017
Genre: Christian/gospel

Alone in my sorrow and dead in my sin
Lost without hope with no place to begin
Your love made a way to let mercy come in
When death was arrested and my life began

Ash was redeemed only beauty remains
My orphan heart, was given a name
My mourning grew quiet, my feet rose to dance
When death was arrested and my life began

Oh Your grace, so free
Washes over me
You have made me new
Now life begins with You

Released from my chains I'm a prisoner no more
My shame was a ransom He faithfully bore
He cancelled my debt and He called me His friend
When death was arrested and my life began

Oh Your grace, so free
Washes over me
You have made me new
Now life begins with You

It's Your endless love
Pouring down on us
You have made us new
Now life begins with You
Ohh with You

Our Saviour displayed on a criminal's cross
Darkness rejoiced as though Heaven had lost
But then Jesus arose with our freedom in hand
That's when death was arrested and my life began, ohhh!

Oh Your grace, so free
Washes over me
You have made me new
Now life begins with You

Ohh, it's Your endless love
Pouring down on us
You have made us new
Now life begins with You

Oh we're free, free
Forever we're free
Come join the song
Of all the redeemed

Yes we're free, free
Forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began

We're free, free
Forever we're free
Come join the song
Of all the redeemed

Yes we're free, free
Forever amen
When death was arrested and my life began
When death was arrested and my life, began.

Relationship over religion: The message from an old man...


Had a sweet conversation with an old man in a bus yesterday (Sunday). Learnt a lot from him! He said that I would tell people about our meeting. He was right 😁.

Summary: 
Stop making noise that you are a christian. Let them see the LORD reflected in you. Context: the early apostles did not call themselves christians. The people saw them model everything Jesus taught and called them "christians". They were like Christ. Are you? Am I? 🤔 Are we?

Shalom!

Queen Esther (the movie)

Trying to watch at least one movie per month. I've just seen Queen Esther... one of my favorite scenes is the tête–à–tête the king had with Esther after Vashti lost her throne due to "rebellion". The king fearing that Esther might rise up to become another activist within his palace asked, "Will you be an obedient queen?". Esther's response included, "Will you be a faithful king?". I liked that she had a very "strong voice" (confidence and wisdom) in the presence of the king. Any royalty will be attracted to that. The rest of the discussion is pure poetry. You 'll enjoy it. But I still prefer the book as it is recorded in the Bible 😊. I guess I'm just a bookaholic.
