Very few people knew I was back…cuz I wanted to just spend time with my folks…but on the 30th I went to my home church (House on the rock) for Sunday service where everyone was happy to see me, my Pastor REV. BARNABAS ARASTUS insisted that on the 31st night before he comes up I would lead worship(it was a set up from heaven)….and I was like hmmm…but I agreed…so the night was blessed with so many anointed ministers and now it was my turn I GOT UP THERE AND BEGAN TO SING AND IN THE MIDST OF IT I HEARD A VOICE SAY…I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR YOU FOR SEVEN YEARS…this broke my heart…. I WENT ON MY KNEES AND COULD’NT HOLD BACK THE TEARS…I dropped the mic and went back to my seat where I prayed a simple prayer LORD I’M SORRY FOR RUNNING FROM PURPOSE ALL THESE YEARS AND I’M GRATEFUL THAT YOU WAITED FOR ME…I SURRENDER TO YOU TOTALLY TODAY WHEREVER YOU LEAD ILL FOLLOW…and I felt the kinda peace I haven’t felt in seven years come into my heart… this was my tremendous turnaround IT CAME WITH CONFLICT AND LOOSING FRIENDS AND FANS AND FOLLOWERS AND INDUSTRY CRED. LOL BUT I GAINED PURPOSE IN GOD AND NOTHING ELSE COMPARES TO THAT…

Grace Lyrics by Solomon Lange

Amazing grace is the sweetest sound
That changed my life, I once was lost
But now I’m found,
Was blind but now I see
You took my shame, you took my pain
My Jesus gave me his
Now I reign I reign with him
All my days I’ll give him my praise

Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Grace grace grace
I see grace
Grace great grace
All I see is grace
Grace great grace

Amazing grace amazing grace
Is the story of my life
It’s not by power
It’s not by might
It’s by the spirit of the lord
It’s not by hard work
It’s not by skills
Divine help is what i enjoy
I am not afraid of tomorrow
I have grace great grace

The hand of Jehovah
Is at work in my life
The spirit of Yahweh
Is at work in my heart

Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Everywhere that I go
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Everywhere that I go
I see grace
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
Everywhere that I go
I see grace
Everything that I do
All I see is grace
I have help
I see grace
The help of God
All I see is grace
The grace of god is my advantage
I see grace
The grace of God is my advantage
All I see is grace
The weapons of our warfare are not canal
I see grace
They are mighty, they are mighty through God
All I see is grace
Great grace, all I see is grace
All I see is grace.

The grace of our lord Jesus Christ
The love of the father
And the sweet fellowship of the Holy Spirit
Abiding with us all the days of our lives and forever

[1.] When I think upon Your goodness
and Your faithfulness each day
I’m convinced it’s not because I am worthy
to receive the kind of love that You give
But I’m grateful for Your mercy
and I’m grateful for Your grace
And because of how You’ve poured out Yourself,
I have come to sing this song out in praise

[Chorus] Imela, Imela (Thank You! Thank You!)
Okaka, Onyekeruwa (Great and Might creator of the world)
Imela, Imela (Thank You! Thank You!)
Eze mo (My King)

[2.] Who am I to sing Your praises?
Who am I to worship You?
Its Your blood that makes the difference in me
And made a way to enter into Your throne
I could not come near Your presence
I could never sing Your song
But the sacrifice on Calvary’s tree
is the reason I can cry out today

[Chorus] [Bridge] Onyedikagi (Who is like You?)
Ekene diri gi (All Glory belongs to You)
Onye ne mema (He who does good)
Onyedikagi (Who is like You?)
Ekene diri gi (All Glory belongs to You)
Onye nagworia (Mighty Healer) X5

[Chorus] Imela, Imela,
Okaka, Onyekeruwa
Imela, Imela,
Eze mo X2

Bio: Tasha Cobbs-Leonard

Tasha Cobbs-Leonard

For Tasha Cobbs-Leonard, it all began in her hometown, Jesup, Georgia. There she functioned as Worship Leader of Jesup New Life Ministries, founded by her late father, Bishop Fritz Cobbs. Tasha faithfully lent her talents at her local assembly before an unforeseen relocation to Atlanta, Georgia, where she joined the thriving dReam Center Church of Atlanta. Most of her tenure at dReam Center entailed leading worship weekly and managing the various entities of the Worship & Arts Department. She now serves as one of the team pastors at dReam Center.

In 2012, Cobbs would go on to record her freshman project titled GRACE, produced by multi-award-winner and Motown Gospel label mate, VaShawn Mitchell. This project laced with organic and moving tracks featured the lead single, Break Every Chain, which landed as Billboard’s #1 song for a total of 12 weeks. This anthem unleashed liberation to countless audiences nationwide each time it was heard or ministered. The album Grace landed on Billboard’s Top 10 Gospel Albums chart for a year. It was definite that the world had received not just another singer, but a rare gift.

More than an artist, Tasha Cobbs-Leonard is an innovative tool of influence with a passion for mentorship. Resulting from this passion came the launch of the iLead Escape (www.theiLeadEscape.com), a global ministry mentorship program that aids 2,000 mentees in sharpening the knowledge and execution of their gifts. In addition to this program, Tasha extended the reach of her mentorship with her debut book, WORSHIP 101, a manual that revisits the basics of worship.

In such a short time, Tasha has seen extraordinary success with accomplishments that include: a Grammy Award, 3 Stellar Awards, and 3 Dove Awards. She notes God’s grace as the reason for it all.

On Monday, October 13th, 2014, thousands from near and far gathered for the live recording of her sophomore project with Motown Gospel/Universal CMG as she documented a body of work, that although done in the same vein of GRACE, will certainly stand alone because of its progressive and crossover approach. Many have already offered their reviews claiming that this project will introduce listeners to a fresh and unprecedented sound..

Pastor Tasha Cobbs-Leonard continues to brand herself as a multifaceted game-changer as she blazes her own trail with her music career and ministry efforts. In light of all the recognition she has been afforded, her goal remains to use her platform as an opportunity to fulfill the purpose of her assignment.

 

Lecrae: ‘For the first time in a while I’m joyful and Free’

American Christian rapper, Lecrae Devaughn Moore, popularly known as Lecrae recently took to his Instagram page to pour out his heart. In recent years, the Grammy® award winner came under scrutiny for saying he doesn’t want to be labeled a “Christian Rapper”. He has also been in the news for speaking up on political issues.

When I made my album I didn’t title it “All Things Work Together” because I believed it…but because I NEEDED to believe it.

This outpouring might come as a surprise to a few who describes Lecrae as a pillar in the gospel rap scene. However, loyal fans know him for his openness in his songs and interviews.

Read his post below,

I Don’t do super long posts but I’m going to today so bear with me. Sometimes you gotta shut up and listen to God. Close your eyes and walk by faith. For the first time in a while I’m joyful and free. Took a while to get here. From 2015-2017 I was on a rollercoaster. Doubt, depression, anger, shame, hate, hurt, and on and on. When I made my album I didn’t title it “All Things Work Together” because I believed it…but because I NEEDED to believe it.

God has allowed me to journey thru the pain and come out on the other side better, wiser, stronger, and more confident in who He created me to be. My life has been a unique journey ( I could go from the Hip Hop Awards to Hillsong in a day) but that’s MY LIFE lol! No hiding or running from it. Despite gossip, rumors, or misunderstandings, I’m not choosing race over faith, Secular over sacred…I’m choosing to follow Jesus in every area of my life. It’s not simple, it’s not black & white. It’s colorful and nuanced. It’s beautifully complicated and that leads to an immense amount of faith and trust.

There have been a lot of missteps but even more mercy. My failures have led to stronger faith. I’m sure I’ll continue growing and changing as we all should. Ultimately I just want to thank everyone of you who have supported me thru it all. Your letters, messages, prayers, and support and GRACE has given me life. I’m walking into a new chapter of life and excited about it! I have everlasting hope and that’s enough to weather ANY storm” – Lecrae
