Sweet Holy Spirit…

Written May 15, 2019

If you didn’t know, I am OBSESSED with Hillsong UNITED’s “Highlands (Songs of Ascent)” That song turns me into a mess. The first time I heard it, right from the beginning of the instrumentals, I knew there was something about it, then I paused the song and googled the lyrics and I was blown! The last time I was like this over a song was Hillsong UNITED’s “Here Now (Madness)”. Highlands talks about God’s love and grace in a very personal and poetic manner that opens my heart to gratitude.

About a week ago, a dear friend texted me from the hospital that she was prepping for her child delivery and needed me to stand in prayer with her. This was around 3pm and I was on my way from Illupeju, immediately I plugged in my earphones and had Highlands on repeat and started praying in tongues.

I prayed until around 6pm ish when I got home. I was still praying as I had dinner. I paused to watch an episode of Modern Family and even while watching the show, I would catch myself praying in tongues. I had conversations with my family and in between was praying under my breathe (It was really weird, it was as if I couldn’t stop praying) By the time it was around 11pm ish and I was about to have my official fellowship time with the Holy Spirit, I had become unconsciously very sensitive to the Holy Spirit. I still had Highlands on repeat by the way, I was singing along to the song, thinking about God’s wonderful grace and love and praying in tongues. I don’t know how long I prayed for when I suddenly felt warmth all over my body. I became really hot and I could feel tears welling up. I just knew God was in my room. I could feel Him. I was laying on my back on my bed praying, trying to control the tears but I couldn’t hold it any longer. I jolted up (later I realised while sitting on my bed praying, my head was bowed) and just released the tears, thanking God over and over for his perfect Grace and unconditional love. I couldn’t stop giving thanks… I felt so unworthy and so vulnerable.
