Over the past few weeks, the Nigerian Gospel world has witnessed the release of a number of love single releases. Amazing! It is so amazing! However, it is not in my interest in any bit to add to the number. That is not my intention with HE HEARD ME FROM ABOVE. This single isn’t meant to leave you all mushy. While mushy is good and I love to enjoy some mushy seasons with the husband of my youth, my desire is to turn the focus of everyone that’d be listening to this to God. I want you to know that YOU CAN PRAY YOUR SAMUEL INTO BEING!
This is one lesson I would love you to go with today. Hannah was a barren woman who PRAYED! What came between her barren situation and her motherhood was PRAYER! If we can pray, all things are possible. We have so many narratives even in the world today. So many people believe you do not need to trouble the Lord about your marriage. Simple look for a good Christian brother or sister in the fellowship and marry. That is God’s Will. Oh really!
By God’s grace, I will be making a video very extensively soon on what exactly this WILL OF GOD means. But in the meantime, I would love you to know that GOD STILL LEADS! But from the Scriptures, I can see that He only leads ready people! He only leads His own children! He only leads those who believe! He only leads those who PRAY!
How amazing it must have been for Hannah to behold Samuel with tears in her eyes and say ‘For this one, I prayed!’ Oh how great would it be for this to be your own testimony also! That you would look over at your wonderful Godly spouse and say ‘For this one I prayed!’. That you would look at your job, your health, your child, your business and say with gratitude in your heart towards God- ‘My prayers by the mercies of the Lord, brought this forth!’
Prayers don’t die, fam! I look at my husband today, look at all the Lord told me about him before he surfaced, look at all those times I’d shut myself up in the church, crying ‘Lord, prove through me that You still lead in marriage!’ ‘Write my love story!’ ‘Do with my life what You’d love to, Father!’. I prayed with so much reckless abandon and dangerous faith. And they were not in vain!
PRAYERS SAID WITH ALL SINCERITY OF HEART AND FAITH CANNOT BE IN VAIN! AND THE PRAYERS OF SOMEONE TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON THE LORD, THROWING HIMSELF AWAY AND SAYING ‘I’D SAY YES TO YOUR WILL, OH LORD’ CANNOT BE DENIED!
Many times in my prayers, the best ways I can open my heart to the Lord is via songs. I would simply find myself spewing out lyrics, writing out prayer songs and so on. That was what happened to me in 2019 also. In 2018, my husband had come to propose to me and close to my birthday in 2019, I started to think so deeply about God! About all the pains, tears, downs, sorrows, trials and all that I had had to ‘enjoy’ in life and how the Lord was always there to help me! I started to think ‘Oh Lord, so, You did all these to me to have me?’ and He has taught me over and time again that ‘NOTHING HAPPENS TO GOD’S CHILDREN. THEY HAPPEN FOR US!’
With the ‘pain’ of gratitude and love to the Lord who decided to love me, speak to me, lead me, help me, I burst out with new lyrics- WHO AM I, LORD? You can download a free copy for yourself. It is an emotional testimony of the faithfulness of God over my life.
Singing is simply one of the best ways I give glory to the Lord. I do not boast of a rich singing talent or strong vocal cords but I rejoice in the voice that the Lord has given me, the gratitude and blessings He’s filled my heart with and I simply just write the songs and sing.
So, last year, when it was almost time for my husband’s birthday, I decided to sit down and do some deep thinking again. I decided to think back about how I became my husband’s wife. I thought deeply about how the Lord connected the dots and made ‘The Will of God’ real to me just by the way He’d brought us together. With tears in my eyes, gratitude in my heart, joy of surprising my husband with a lovely tune, I sat down to compose HE HEARD ME FROM ABOVE.
Like I said, ‘HE HEARD ME FROM ABOVE’ isn’t necessarily a romantic Christian song. It is a testimony. It is a song that I do hope connects you to the Heavens. It is a song that I hope gives you hope. It is a song that I hope makes you pray. It is a song that I hope revives your unbelieving heart. It is a song that I hope you can sing on your wedding day. It is a song that I hope you can sing two, three, five, ten, twenty years into your marriage as you testify of God’s Presence in your Godly, Biblical marriage.
I surprised my husband with the song on his birthday (See the video of the birthday surprise below)
So, with the agreement of my husband, I decided that the song should go public. That the testimony should be shared with you! The initial plan was to release the single on our wedding anniversary last year but I couldn’t, so I decided to release it on my 30th birthday, today! (19th March, 2023).
Getting married to my husband, Michael is the second best thing that has happened to me in life. The first best thing is getting married to the Lord Jesus Christ! The Lord made me into a presentable bride for my lord! How awesome! If you are yet to read our love story, you are missing a lot. Read the first chapter of our story, THE LOVERS’ DIARY here.
So, today, I want to release HE HEARD ME FROM ABOVE to you, hoping and praying that this becomes your own testimony also. That you would know and harness the power of prayers. That you would cherish the beauty of waiting on the Lord and wait indeed. That you would desire the Will of the Lord and pray it into being. And that you will behold the result of your prayers, waiting and crying and say of a surety in many aspects of your life- HE HEARD ME FROM ABOVE.
HE HEARD ME FROM ABOVE BY MRS. YAKS (THE LYRICS)
Here is the lyrics of the song. Soak it in first before listening to the song:
I didn’t want an ordinary love or lover
And I knew the only way is God
So I went to Him
I cried to Him
I fasted and prayed
Then He told me
He had heard me
He heard me from above
And He gave me His best
He heard me from on high
And He brought me into His rest
Oh what joy it is to know
That He would lead His own
If only He would bring the case to Him- above!
So, that day, I waited anxiously to see him
And behold, there He stood face-to-face
So I looked at him
My heart screaming- So this God is true!
Then, he told me, ‘Hello Lizzy, here’s David!’
My dear Lord, you really are so rich in mercy
Who am I that You are kind to me
Here I can’t believe
This huge treasure, this king Lord is mine
Apparently, You’re a giver of good gifts.
My darling husband you surely are above all
I’m so glad I really prayed for you
You’re a great leader
A great lover
A good head to me
Here I promise to honour you the more
