So uncontrollably in Love!!

You know this feeling.. how you get butterflies at the thought of someone you hold very dearly? How your heart skips a beat at memories remembered and shared, and future-possibilities hoped for, desired? You know how your longing emotions are so powerful and strong, so over-whelming and over-powering at times, the earth seems to simply stand…

Now Behold The Lamb

Sometimes we get so busy- distracted by life- that we simply forget what it’s really all about. We forget just how blessed we truly are. This is to act as a reminder that it is finished. Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! (Jn 1:29)

Living Life In A Cell

This post was inspired by Burna Boy’s Freedom, recent events, and many memories; some of which I’m going to share with you today. The bold italic lines are his lyrics. * * * Problem, problem, problems. Could somebody show me a way that I can solve them? They calling police and they’re saying that I rubbed…

Umoja: The Spirit of Togetherness

I just watched this (online) a couple of months ago and thought it was too beautiful not to share. Umoja tells the history of black South Africa through music and dance. Check out their website for more information. Enjoy! 🙂 (Rights to these videos are not mine.)

When You Fall..

When you’re weak, because you’ve fallen short, there is grace.. When you’re about to give up, because you just can’t seem to get it right, there is grace.. When you know you don’t deserve it, because you’ve fallen off the wagon one too many times, there is grace.. Sometimes we are exceedingly harsh on ourselves…

He Heals Me

You know, there are days on which you just listen to a particular artist.. over and over. I have such days quite often. Although I have no list of “favourite artists/songs” there are seasons where I am just stuck.. Some time ago it was Soty’s “Malaria”.. it was on replay for well over a week….

Xavier Naidoo & Söhne Mannheims

One of my favourite musicians is undoubtedly Xavier Naidoo. He’s an absolutely amazing artist, does inspirational music (also member of “Die Söhne Mannheims“), and woohooooooo: a Christian! Most of his songs can be likened to the book of Ruth: he sings about God/Christ and uses a lot of Scripture, yet hardly ever  uses the word “God” itself. He is…

Mali Music and Jahaziel..

I’ve been so hooked on Mali Music. It’s unbelievable. Some of his songs are just so beautiful. Listen and enjoy! Another musician I am currently enjoying much is Jahaziel. Whoever knows me, knows I’m not a fan of Rap or anything related, but this I like! Listen and you’ll understand why..

A Word of Comfort

Ecclesiastes 4: 8- 12 8There is one alone, and there is not a second; yea, he hath neither child nor brother: yet is there no end of all his labour; neither is his eye satisfied with riches; neither saith he, For whom do I labour, and bereave my soul of good? This is also vanity,…

Value and Worth..

It’s a pretty ancient song but I love it even more today than I did then. I won’t go into the artist’s background, but just go ahead and share this song anyway. It’s a beutiful song with a beautiful message. Scroll further down for some of the lyrics. Here goes India Arie’s “Video”: Sometimes I…

Yoruba Worship: Kabiyesi

I came across this recently and simply had to share it. A song of praise to the Kind of kings. The arrangement and the vocals are simply beautiful. In spite of a hiccup or two, it’s really lovely. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did/still do. (The music conductor and director is Dr. Albert…

Bow Down..

Revelation 4: 8- 11 The Throne in Heaven Day and night they never stop saying: “‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God Almighty,’ who was, and is, and is to come.” 9 Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to him who sits on the throne and who lives for ever and ever, 10 the twenty-four…

I Give Myself Away..

I am Yours for You to have, for You to use Just as You desire. I am Yours to fill, to complete within and without It is You I admire. I am Yours break, remould me cleans and uphold me I need more of your fire. So today again as many times before I give…

Show Me Your Face

A beautiful worship song by William McDowell. Once it’s finished playing and the list of suggestions comes up, please click on “Closer, Wrap Me in Your Arms”. It’s an absolutely amazing worship song. If you like this one, I can promise you’ll like the next one too.

You’re The Best Thing

A wonderful song by Ray LaMontagne. I just came across him and thought to share this lovely song with you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.. if not for anything, then at least because of the lyrics. 😉

For The Music Lover

During one of my conversations with Chidi- a wonderful friend of mine living in New York- the topic Gospel artists came up. His request, following our dialogue, was a list of the aforementioned. So here I am, years later, sharing that not-very-comprehensive list of favorite artists with you (in no particular order, if I may add)….

Love with a Lifetime Guarantee

Sade’s always been an amazing vocalist. I like one of her latest songs Babyfather particularly. 1) because I am My Fathers’ baby; and 2) because I have two fathers who love me to death (figuratively and literally speaking… Go figure 😉 ). Enjoy as you listen!

The Object of Your Affection and Attention

Short string of questions: What is it YOU can’t live without? Is it really worth it? I can’t win, I can’t reign, I will never win this game, Without you, without you, I am lost, I am vain, I will never be the same, Without you, without you, I won’t run, I won’t fly, I will never make…

Blue God..

Some words of caution by Jessica Reedy; true on so many levels. Listen to the words of the song carefully and perhaps examine yourself and your relationship with your Maker. We all need to.. (Check out her website too!) The lyrics: My Opinion, My View, My Life, My Joy Its My Hurt, My Pain, My…

Betilehemu (correct pronunciation)

I really did not mean to be posting songs and videos only, but it is what it is, really. I stand in awe of the following video, for mainly this reason: —> Betelehemu is a well known Yoruba (Yoruba, being a West-African tribe, culture and language, with its largest group predominantly spread across the SW…

The Soweto Gospel Choir

Apart from the all-men Ladysmith Black Mambazo group, this must be my favorite African “choir”- and it comes from (you guessed it.. *beating of the drums*) SOuth Africa.. again! The Soweto Gospel Choir was formed to celebrate the unique and inspirational power of African Gospel music; and consist of a 52-strong choir, drawing the best talent from the…

Bless The LORD..

Not for what He has done, but simply for Who He Is. Here a beautiful excerpt from Psalm 103: 1Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. 2Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: 3Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all…

Speak..

We all too often forget the power of the spoken word; forget that in it are both life and death. Decide today to SPEAK! 1 The hand of the LORD came upon me and brought me out in the Spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley; and it…

Goapele- Closer

A beautiful artist I just recently came across: Goapele! Absolutely amazing stuff she’s got! After a break of roughly 10 years, she’s back with a brand new album Break of Down. To purchase the album and/or find out more about her, click here. Fow now, enjoy one of her (old) songs/videos: Closer.

Well Done..

Nothing wrong with some worship in here.. (I really do prefer this video to the song’s official one) *smiles* EnjOy!
