When I think upon your goodness and your faithfulness each day,
I’m convinced it’s not because I am worthy to receive the kind of love that you give
But I’m grateful for your mercy, and I’m grateful for your grace
And because of how you’ve poured out yourself, I have come to sing this song out in praise…
Hello beautiful people! I hope everyone is well by His grace.
I’m sure you know this wonderful song by Nathaniel Bassey & Enitan Adaba (if not check it out here -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OzU_jT7Y_JA). This is actually the song I wanted to walk down the aisle with, but unfortunately I couldn’t because I literally ran down the aisle lol due to circumstances beyond my control. This song means so much to me because I feel like it describes my life so perfectly. Even on the D-day, I still hadn’t fully come to terms with what was really happening in my life. The changes in my life had been so dramatic and mind blowing that it seemed I was having an out-of-body experience. I couldn’t believe that just me, Dzifa, without doing anything extraordinary was being this favored by God.
I didn’t know you will favor me this way
I never know you will favor me this way
I didn’t know you will favor me this way, favor me this way: Thank you Jesus!
Till date I still say to my husband, “I can’t believe just me has got you.” Maybe it’s the way I saw myself then or more of remembering where God had picked me up from and how far He has brought me because I never hessperredit!
Who am I to sing your praises? Who am I to worship you?
It’s your blood that makes the difference in me and made a way to enter into your throne
I could not come near your presence, I could never sing your song
But the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree is the reason I can cry out today…
Who really am I to be able to stand in His mighty presence today to worship and serve? I was never the church girl, never a part of anything church-y in the church I used to attend. I always felt like an outsider, an onlooker while everyone else participated. I was never involved, I felt like I was just going because I had to, so at a point I just quit. I thought it would be better for me to stay home than make that journey back and forth and get nothing out of it.
I was empty inside, confused and lost. I didn’t even know what I was doing in this world. I never spoke to anyone about it because I didn’t want to be wrongly judged or misunderstood. Or maybe I just didn’t know what to say. Those were dark times for me and I am beyond grateful that God saved me.
He brought me into His light and love and made me know that I mattered to Him. That He had already paid the price for my sins so I no longer had to be guilty and ashamed. That no one could judge me because He didn’t, He accepted me as I was.
Gradually I began to change, to understand who I am in Him. I didn’t know what plans He had for me then, I was just happy to be with Him, to be able to come into his presence freely, to understand what was going on and participate joyfully. It was a new experience for me, one I greatly enjoyed. And this is why I can’t thank Him enough! (Titus 3:3-7)
Imela! Imela! (Thank you! Thank You!)
Okaka, Onyekeruwa (Great and mighty creator of the world)
Imela! Imela! (Thank you! Thank you!)
Eze m Oh (My King)
Thank you to my father and King for not leaving me as I was. I was a big hot mess, but He took me, refined me and made a message out of me. He has made me a living testimony; that when you think all is lost, He doesn’t. He doesn’t write you off even if everyone else has.
This is me, who was a lost, broken girl that God took and refined, telling you it can be done, with Him. He did it for lil ole me, He can definitely do it for you too. I have been down there so I know what it’s like but I’m telling you His love is far greater and deeper than we can imagine and He’s ever ready and willing to take us back into His arms, no matter how far gone we think we are.
At the time, I couldn’t see a way out of my dark situation, but He is the way maker and miracle worker. He makes ways where there seem to be none. He is the God of the impossible so whatever you think cannot be, He thinks it CAN! Oh I can’t keep this great love to myself, I need for everyone to experience it. Give Him a chance, this loving father I speak of and I pray you testify of His goodness even more than I am.
