It feels really good to be a star, doesn’t it? Today I can proudly look myself in the mirror and call myself a star, not because I am proud or anything but because I am living my dream. I am doing everything I always dreamt of. I have sang in front of thousands and motivated many people, and it does feel great. However, whether I like it or not, I have a lot of enemies. People constantly judge me behind and even to my face but the secret to my thick skin is trying as much as possible to focus my attention on doing the things that make me happy, and with the people that see the best in me.
I spend so much time giving thanks to God because I know there a lot of people that are not alive to see this day.
I am alive and healthy today and living my dream not just because I pray or do anything more than anyone but because of God’s grace.
Talking about “Na dem they rush us” have you heard the latest song by Da music “Rush us”? It’s amazing!
Check it out on his Instagram page @i_am_damusic and also make sure you attend his concert this coming sunday if you are in Nigeria. It’s happening live in Abuja Sheraton Hotel on the 28th of October 2018. The very first Afro gospel concert!!!
Back to the gist.. Do you ever feel like you are lacking something or that people tend to ignore you? If ever you do, please stop. You really shouldn’t be bothered by that! Take Leah for example, she wasn’t loved by her husband Jacob. However, God used that avenue as a source of blessing her.
“When the Lord saw that Leah was hated, He opened her womb, but Rachel was barren” (Gen. 29:31).
I realized I was very emotional, and I hated it so much because little things made me cry. I became insecure. I thought it was my weakness, not knowing it was my strength. I got to know after Dunsin Oyekan tutored myself and a group of persons on singing. He mentioned how Kim Burrell sings beautifully well with her feelings.
I started channeling my emotions to the songs I sing, and especially to God. Now I can tell you my worship to God has improved as it gets me closer to Him.
Dear friends, what I’m trying to say is don’t look down on yourself nor allow people do same. The so-called weaknesses you think you have could be blessings in disguise through self development and discipline. Remember, you are beautiful, special and loved! Believe in yourself!
