And despite de struggles…

Let each song speak to you as it did for me โค on…

SQS

One out of my fav local artiste from my home islands for he sings about the daily trials one faces as a follower of Christ. We all have a testimony and a story to tell about God’s saving grace and goodness over our life’s. God is sooooooooooo good and he truly deserves to be glorified highly!ย 

Since this song is about testimonies let me testify real quick! I was 16 years old when I was stung by a beetle I didn’t even know I was allergic to. My entire body was covered in red itching and stinging rash! I felt as if my body was engulfed inย FIRE! My face was swollen so badly, I couldn’t even see that clearly and my eyes were concealed under the swollen skin due to the venom of that insect. I was rushed to the hospital and immediately was sedated with I think was insulin or some very strong ascetic that caused my heart to beat so fast. The doctors couldn’t even find my vein for they said my skin was too thick for back then I was more solid than I am now, so I was injected THREE times! Yes, three!ย 

That night, I was placed in a room with two other patients. I wasn’t saved yet but I had always believed in God and always had very strong FAITH in Him. I knew I was dying. I said to myself well this is it. I’m going to die. I know I was between life and death for while I laid on that bed and prayed profoundly I felt my spirit slowly departing from my body and instantly I saw a huge hand stretching down out of a white cloud and my hands was reaching up towards it very slowly…it was such a beautiful moment and sight to see, and I still recall up to this day! ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

As I reached closer to hold unto his hand, I felt so peaceful and just you know like really free from EVERYTHING life had thrown at me from that tender age! I never felt that way before! But then his hand disappeared and my eyes opened. It was like he was saying to me back then, not now my child…I’m not ready for you yet. And now todayย  after 6 years I’m here alive and well and living for Him! How amazing is my GOD! Now I see why he wasn’t ready for me back then ๐Ÿ˜€ WOW! He’s really the AUTHOR of my story! โคย 

And that’s why…..

*Translation check:- (De) pronounced as D means (the) in Trini.ย 
Ah- Means (of) in this instance for how he utilized it within the song.ย 
Yay-ah- Means yes in this instance. In most of his songs he says that, its sort of like his landmark so you’ll know who the artiste is before you hear the song. (I’m not good at explaining sometimes *fictitiously chortles*)ย ย 

Sorry for writing your lyrics somewhat wrong Nathanael LOL! One more thing we Trinidadians have the tendency of speaking and singing fast, so if you don’t understand what he’s saying just simply slow it down from off your phone or in your head I guess? Ah, no worries, you’ll get it! ๐Ÿ˜‰ย
