We all have treasures, and it is up to us to dig within to find it.
It takes grace to nurture and polish
the treasure we find till it shines, and it takes an even greater grace
to offer it back to the King of Kings for His use. Giving back to Him the best
part of you, to show the world the best of Him.
I was at the launch of the debut album of
Benue Born Adakole William, titled ‘Highly Lifted’. This young man has
vigorously polished his treasure and it shines like the gemstone that it is,
and he’s offered it back to the King.
The 13-track album takes you on a journey of
worship and praise, and leaves you in awe of God. It’s got upbeat and catchy tunes, but It's hard
to loose the message even in the midst of the groove. One minute you're moving,
and the next you're throwing your hands up in worship.
I’m excited about this album. In a world
where you’ve got to mouth words like ‘1st of all, go down low' or 'shake that thing' to be seen as good and to have
a fair chance to strut on the red carpet of fame. It’s great to see people choose to
stick to what matters most, which is a love for God that isn’t fazed by the
desire for acceptance and popularity.
I uploaded one of my favorite tracks from the
album titled 'I am here'… I love it!!! A call from God to come to Him and just
drop it all at His feet. Deep!
