So my personal testimony continued….Tolu Adesina

from last week #testimonytuesday I missed home and Mum and Dad so I left Lagos and came to kaduna. 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…
