Hey Music lovers, happy new month and it feels great entering into the theme´s week on the first day of the month. How excited are you?
This will be my entry to the Hive Open Mic Week #112 whose theme is "Local Tradition". I have tried finding a song to suit this theme but I couldn´t. I guess it´s all about singing a song you are connected with.
Tradition is a belief or custom that is being passed across to generations and if I am to link the song to the theme, then I should say the song has a strong belief in it and should definitely be passed across to generations so they could keep singing and having their spirit and hope lifted up, which has been same for me for the past weeks I have come to know this song.
I remembered my cousin complaining about what kind of song was I singing that isn´t interesting. Actually, he is not into solemn and slow songs, but this is what I love. Worship songs that connect you to heaven. Songs that make you move closer to God to want to spend more time with Him, that is the kind of songs I enjoy singing. When you actually listen to worship gospel songs, trust me, you wouldn´t want to leave that presence with God because you want more, you are thirsting for more power and strength through the song.
This song titled "Amen Amen" by TY Bello, featuring Sinmidele and Ore Macaulay was officially released on the 14th of January this year and it is a song project that was inspired by the Holy Spirit. This song speaks about love, joy, hope, freedom, and salvation.
You know when you are down, depressed and you have turned everywhere for help, but it seems help isn´t showing or perhaps you are addicted to a bad habit that is risking your life already which you know it, but there is actually a solution if you are ready, and it is you recognizing the power of God and having the hope that He is breaking that addiction in your life. He is freeing you from all problems and professing freedom for you.
What is a religion that doesn´t speak about love? What is a religion that doesn´t care for humanity? The song is filled with hope that God is destroying and breaking that religion into an attitude of His own which is to love and care for humanity.
I have found myself lost in the song that I just keep playing it over and over again with many other inspiring songs and that alone gives me the hope, freedom and peace that I really need.
The artist was truly inspired by the Holy Spirit to bring out this song as a message of hope to everyone and to bring a message of Jesus Christ into our lives.
I´m sorry about the background in my video. This is my small room and I had to sing when other students had left home for school so I do not want any distraction, I had to use my little darkroom for it 😆

Thank you for listening and enjoying the song with me.
