#FreedomFriday: TE15 – Expectations

Standard

EXPECTATION: The act or state of looking forward in anticipation.

If you do a random sampling, you will likely find out that over the years, people just go to The Experience because there will be a plethora of unique gospel artistes at the same time on one stage and it’s a FOC (free of charge) concert.

Well…
Have we started charging gate fee at The Experience? No!
Has the quality of Gospel Ministers reduced? No way!
Have the hours assigned to Praise, Pray and Worship been slashed? No!
Has the Presence of God become commonplace and of no effect? No!

But…

As the countdown goes on, my charge to you today is to be EXPECTANT! Do not show up as in times past, having no desire except to dance, be happy, sing and go!

Have you not heard of the miracles tied to The Experience? Of salvation, healing, restoration, finding life’s path and partners, blessing of the fruit of the womb? What is it that you desire? Remember WHOSE presence it is that we will stand before and ask yourself, “If I was given an audience with the President, to make any request and it will be granted, what will it be?”

Fortunately, the One before Whom you will stand (come 4th/5th December 2015), is MORE than all the Presidents of the world put together. His WORD created the Heavens and the Earth, that Word is still very powerful today.  What will your EXPECTATION be? Even the man at the gate called Beautiful looked up with expectation to receive something from Peter and John and he got MORE! Acts 3:1-5;  plan to receive from God too.

In His Presence is fullness of JOY, if by the end of this years’ Experience you do not get Fullness of Joy, then you have yourself to blame. Get your Expectation in place and let’s meet at TBS. I’ll look out for you…physically or spiritually…while you are at it, don’t forget your dancing shoes!

TE15: The Experience!

Standard

What is an Experience?

  • a particular instance of personally encountering or undergoing something:
  • the process or fact of personally observing, encountering, or undergoing something:
  • the observing, encountering, or undergoing of things generally as they occur in the course of time:
  • the observing, encountering, or undergoing of things generally as they occur in the course of time:

As you can see in the various meanings, a thread runs through all the meanings. Personal Observation, Encountering and Undergoing. TE15 is around the corner and the rave is on to be part of the music, dance, worship, commerce and networking. Beyond all these, what are you hoping to get at the Experience.

‘The’ signifies that it is specific. Yes it is a concert, but for me this years’ Experience is going to be worth every wait. I’m coming out of every limitation (physical, spiritual, mind etc.) I’m looking forward to a paradigm shift and taking it heads-on; no kid gloves in this matter. I call it deliverance. I don’t know how I came about that phrase, but it resonates so strongly within me and that’s what my expectation is hinged on.

As we gather on the 4th of December to Praise, Pray, Worship and War-ship (Warfare) what will you observe, encounter and believe to undergo. I have told you mine, let’s hear yours and if you don’t have one yet, you still have 10 days to get fired up in the expectation arena!

For there will be shouts of Joy, Songs of Deliverance, a Dance, Abundance, Restoration, Victory, Miracles, Signs and Wonders and definitely Salvation! The list is endless. It will also be a time to be ‘naked and unashamed’ before your Maker in true worship. Just you and Him. So what’s it gonna be at #TheExperience10 . Get your praise on!

Drawer: Ode & Apostrophe

Standard

Day 8: Had come and gone but I finally found the time to write about one of the drawers that holds something/some things special for me and others and that’s…

20150228_173740

My Office Drawer:

Brown, perhaps burnt orange or a colour in that family
You stand lost in a room of similar colours and drawers
Nothing exceptional at first sight …especially, if sight alone is one’s interest.
Yet words cannot describe the joy I see as I watch her walk expectantly towards you
And without thought pulls you out and just typical, you turn down her touch,
Refusing to budge…”get the key!” you say under your breathe
It comes out as a command, to which I alone hear and smile
But she obeys and minutes later leaves smiling and promising to visit again.

“I wonder why she gets all the attention” others murmur
Humming a tune you alone are attuned, to you ignore.
How do you explain that your uniqueness is in your content?
The joy of it brings to every visitor.
I won’t be so quick to give you an award, for I have
Sadness seen on many a faces when their expectation meets no response
When hope is dashed at the sight of an empty drawer
And hunger pangs ring on another octave!

On days like this, I come to your defence
As a lawyer and a friend
“if you want to take something out, you have to put two
So you eat one and I leave the rest for you!”
The same story lines I hear most times, “I will refill”
Some give me thrills cos I know it’s real
Others I shrug off and plan on my next move to sort you
In all, you hold everything that makes the stomach full and the heart glad.
