I am a strong advocate for the woman with respect to coming to the fullness of everything about her. Celebrating her grace and virtues, honoring and saluting all forms of courage displayed by the special breed-Woman!
I had the opportunity to be at a conference over the weekend, I had seen the advert for the conference on the social media, so I went ahead to register because the convener and one of the speakers for the event happened to be women that I had started gravitating towards.
The day came, and I was dressed in white with a touch of gold,that was the dress code for the conference- I got into the hall and it felt so pure and heavenly with the sea of women in their white apparels in different styles, the interior decor of the hall and the sparkling lights in sync with the atmosphere was so surreal.
I began to experience the unusual as soon as I walked in, the first speaker was already on stage and before she went on into her discuss, she blew the shofar, that was a significant moment for me.
One after the other all the speakers took turns and made deposits into other women as God gave them utterances. However at the turn of the third speaker,there was a shift,and that shift was indescribable, at some point while she was speaking she told us -the audience to face the other person and just speak words to one another.
The lady sitting next to me was trying to avoid the eye contact, as the speaker told us to look into each other eyes and speak life, As I tried to look into her eyes she’ll turn and look elsewhere and look back at me again, it’s not easy looking into the eyes of a stranger,because at that point in time that was all we were -strangers sitting together.
That strangeness soon change as everyone in that hall,glittering in white apparels and gold,woman to woman,we held one another’s hand and we started to pray one for another and the prayers intensified,and the intensity increased, and the prayer language changed we began to groan as one in labour yes, we were in labour. All of a sudden we began to pray out the mind of God for one another with accuracy and clarity. Because of God’s presence that was evident in that atmosphere, He gave us the enablement to “stand in the gap” and bring to the earth realm what had long been hanging!
Sisters with power
Unbeknown to us
Our eyes lurked
As we held hands
strangers we were
With a common goal
Here on the birthing stool
To take the delivery
Of that precious child
We each carried for too long
With the help of the midwives
This is your moment in time
Chin down your chest
Now push, they screamed
I’m too tired, she cried
The pain is too much
For me to bear
Then the midwife whispered in her ears
Holding her hand tenderly,
We are in this together.
With the warmth from her midwife
And the joy of seeing her baby
She pushed one last time
Oh! the sound of a crying baby
Destiny was birthed
On that stool
With such SisterPOWER
Sister power so pure
so true, it goes beyond
class and status quo
This power is beyond age or degree
Sister power that levels from all end
for the sole purpose of PURPOSE
So that heaven’s investment
Is not a colossal loss.
Sister power endowed by our Father
For strange works of righteousness
In the earth realm
Breaking the chains of affliction.
Sister power divine enablement
For impact and Influence.
