Happy new year 2019 🎉

happy-new-year-greetings-christian-2019-8 - CopyIt’s a blessing and slightly shocking that we are already in the new year. When i younger i thought time seem to drag on . I would wait and wait just to turn a year older:). Since hitting over 21 it seems time doesn’t drag on anymore but rather it speeds on lol. This brings me to my very awesome new years eve. We had planned as we do every year to go to the watch night at church. I just love going to the new years service as i am always eager to hear and maybe get a confirmation about the coming time. Last night we just could not go as my youngest girl is recovering from a cold plus i worked early in the morning so i was exhausted. To some people modern technology is a distraction but for me i believe its a blessing  (if used in moderation)as we still managed to watch the watchnight ( ha thats funny). Yes it was as simple as browsing and casting straight to the TV. My family and i absolutely enjoyed the service. The music was amazing and most surprisingly a lady by the name of  Rozalla who sang the famous 90s dance anthem, ‘everybody’s freeeeeeeee to feel good’ performed. It was huge surprise for me but fantastic all the same. Muyiwa&Riversongz was one of my highlights for the evening. Their music touches the soul and from the moment they stepped on that stage they ushered in a beautiful atmosphere and i just wanted to keep worshipping with them but like Mr Muyiwa jokingly sad, ‘if you don’t overstay your welcome on the stage, you will definitely be invited back’.

Pastor Colin’s message was much needed for this season. I was hungry and thirsty for a word. Sometimes all we need to hear is that one word and it was a beautiful and touching message and i shall carry it with me in 2019 and beyond. Pastor Colin preached about God’s timing and everything how it is all in the Lord’s hands. He encouraged us now more than ever to go up higher and higher in our walk with God starting back to the basics of the secret place (our private devotions ). He said, ‘as you come up higher, your going to see me and hear me’. He also elaborated further by saying that when we worship God we carry the presence of God with us……..Praise God🙌🏾.  It was a brief but powerful message and before we knew it was the countdown as everybody cheered and it was already 2019.

Children make me laugh eh , so after all this blessed moments we caught a glimpse of the news and what do the girls tell me? They say we should have gone to the London eye instead to see the fireworks. I am not sure i am ready to brave the cold,the dark and a huge crowd plus kids in tow on a busy new years eve lol.

What’s mamabbg listening to?…Name above all names by KT worship

I am currently enjoying this song by KT worship from their 2013 album titled ‘forever’. This is such an uplifting song which makes my toddler dance whenever she hears it.

There is so much talent in the UK gospel scene yet sometimes we get the impression that one must look across the pond for great music….well this album here settles that argument then so enjoy :))

What’s mamabbg listening to? Onye by Evans Ogboi

I am currently listening to Onye a song by London based gospel group. I have been enjoying this infectious up beat tune since summer time. The song is titled Onye which is Igbo for various descriptions of who God is.

The video to the song is not bad either as it takes us through a journey in a bustling London street where we see the gospel changing the life of a homeless lady and ultimately to the whole town joining in to praise God in unity. The video features some traditional igbo dancing, some cheeky azonto moves  and a very cool guitarist who just happens to join!

It is so good to see UK gospel music doing so well and long may it continue …enjoy!
