It is a pleasure to welcome the Afritunes community to a new week of celebrating African music on the Hive. Many thanks to the founder of Afritunes @ksam who has brought this initiative to the blockchain. This week, I will present a song titled 'Final Word' by a Nigerian gospel artist known as 'Sinach'.

I've had a lot of experiences that at some point made me feel as though God was punishing me, only for me to realize later that he wasn't. It's no wonder they say God's ways differ from those of men. I will share a story about something that happened a few days ago.

The type of lady that I am is one who tends to focus on the tasks at hand until they have been achieved. When I work on a task, I do not leave the spot until the task is completed. I try not to get distracted by other things until the task is completed. On Saturday, I always leave my house for rehearsal at 1 pm in order to make my way to church on time.

I usually leave my house right after I have done all the above. I immediately find a vehicle that will take me to church within minutes of leaving my house. Unfortunately, last Saturday was a different story. After I had finished all of my work and was outside waiting to be picked up by a vehicle, I felt so frustrated. I waited for almost 30 minutes for a vehicle to come to pick me up. While I was standing there, I began to wonder if God was punishing me for getting angry earlier that day.

I was so pissed off earlier that day that I yelled and got so angry. Scriptures tell us that we should not sin in our anger, but we can get angry. I admit I did. In addition, waiting so long at the bus stop when I was already late for rehearsal made me feel like I was being punished. Afterward, I realized my thoughts weren't God's. God knows what is in the hearts of his children.

So I decided to walk towards the next bus stop hoping that I would find a vehicle that would eventually pick me up.

Almost immediately, I spotted my sister's husband, who is in the choir at my church. I asked him if he wasn't coming to rehearsal even though he was going to lead the choir song.

Then he asked me if I had checked the choir platform. The time had been shifted to 4 pm.

When I confirmed this, I was so happy and thanked God that no vehicle was available to pick me up. This is because I would have been waiting outside the church until 4 PM. It wouldn't have been fun, so my fellow hivers, everything God does is good.

While it may seem like a minor event, it illustrates how God works.

Thanks for reading.

@fernanblog I tried out that strategy you explained with the lead vocal on this video. What do you think?

The instrumentals was gotten from the Moises app.

Jessica I will start with your reflection that is an anecdote of yours but that happens to all of us under different circumstances or contexts; that waiting taught you the virtue of patience even when there is anger, it was a mental training that helped you to give more sense to something so simple... you have said something that sometimes escapes our understanding regarding the ways in which God works, but certainly HE is good 🙏💖!!!!

Regarding the presentation, I must congratulate you on every level, I loved it, you are amazing Jessica. As you could notice the sound improves a lot that way, you just have to be careful with minimal details when recording the video of the performance, you know what I mean, but that with practice is handled perfectly... the harmony you did was majestic, the sound was organic and coupled very well with the main sound... this was beautiful Jessica, how great that you could do it 🌹😍❤️!!!!

I send you a big hug, I leave happy with your post for this beautiful community, keep it up, with such a great talent that God himself has molded in you, you will go far.... You Absolutely Rockkkkk!!!! 👍😉🔥🎙️🎸🎶❤️🌟🥂💥💫💯

Indeed, the lord works mysteriously, and it pays to be patient.

Thank you so much for encouraging and motivating me.

True, the sound is a lot better.

I also know the minimal details, and like you said, with practice, I will get better.

It's funny that i've had that audacity software on for a while on my system but do not know how to use it, not until your words encouraged and motivated me.

Thanks a lot...Meeting nice people like you on hive means a lot to me 🤗🤩🤩🤩🌟🥂💥💫💯

It's a pleasure Jessica, for me it has also been great to meet you 🙌😀💛; I tell you that I don't master Audacity at all, I just watched tutorials on Youtube and learned 😅, but it has a lot to offer for us to do amazing jobs, the truth is that you have to know a lot or at least the basics regarding sound to understand it better, we must study it well!!!

I loved this presentation, your evolution since I met you has been excellent at all levels, you're a great artist, never doubt it 🌹💖.... You Rockkkkk!!! 👍😉🔥🎙️🎸🎶❤️🌟🥂💥💫💯

the truth is that you have to know a lot or at least the basics regarding sound to understand it better, we must study it well!!!

I agree. I was able navigate through audacity after watching a video on YouTube and searching a few things online. One needs to indeed study well.

This is, beyond doubt, an outstanding and fantastic presentation.

God always wants us to trust in Him and believe in Him. He tells us that He is ever faithful and true to His words. But, the problem is that, the cares of the world and the quest to do things at our own time usually prompts us to deviate from the path He wills for us.

Indeed, our unfaithfulness to Him and decision to do things at our own time only validates our limitedness because things may not always go as we want. Yes, we are humans; we are finite beings; we are limited.. and we should always remember that He is God; He is infinite, Supreme, Unlimited, Creator and sustenance of all things that exist.

We should learn to trust in Him and we should learn to be patient.

I'm so glad we met on Hive, and I am really impressed by your rapid growth and consistency to give in your best at all times.

I am only a servant, serving this lovely community and the good people of Hive. I can do nothing without everyone's continuous support, and consistency.

Thank you for this piece
Thank you!

But, the problem is that, the cares of the world and the quest to do things at our own time usually prompts us to deviate from the path He wills for us.

Yeah, it's a big problem. Thank God that he is not a man, he remains faithful all the time.

Indeed, our unfaithfulness to Him and decision to do things at our own time only validates our limitedness

This is so true...

We should learn to trust in Him and we should learn to be patient

Exactly, this is key.

I'm so glad we met on Hive, and I am really impressed by your rapid growth and consistency to give in your best at all times.

Thank you so much, we the members appreciate you for a good job well done.🙂

Sometimes our thoughts are not God's thought, while we think God is doing this He might be through with it and started another already. Our God is awesome.

Your presentation is fantastic I must say dear friend. Keep up the good work. ✌️

Yeah, God is good.

Thank you so much sholex🙂

Energy always on the 💯
Percent!
I enjoyed listening to you.
Your microphone was also a good touch, brought out your vocals strength to bare!
Kudos dear!!

Thanks a lot Magicfingerz.
I just got the microphone and implemented the strategy I just learned.🙂

As I read on...my heart began beating fast thinking a different things entirely but boom, I was relieved when I realized you didn't check your choir's chats platform. Yea! Indeed everything God does is perfect. You sang that so well. Your harmonies were wow✌🙌. @jessicaossom keep it up more. Its enjoyable.
#Kudos!
