Cue A Glass of Finally by B. Slade. I don’t care what y’all think about him, the man is one of the baddest singers of all time. ALL TIME, that’s what I said.
This blog literally came out of nowhere. It was during altar call at church, 1/27/13, and I was a little miffed at the patience of some folks, but either way, I was standing at my post, and all of the sudden, the song A Glass of Finally hit my head. I liked the song when I first heard, it but then the lyrics started speaking to me in a sense, and giving God a Finally Praise just hit me. Before I go on, I’m not saying B. Slade was going this direction in the least, but it’s the way I’m going with it.
You’ve heard the song, After This by Youthful Praise, talking about the Glory after whatever you’re going through. Ever get that feeling though like after your miracle, like that finally! “It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally me. It’s been a long time coming, but I’m finally free!” I feel like once we get that break through, of whatever it is, we should just praise God like we’re loose. The problem is we’re bound by what’s not even there. The storm is over; praise God like it’s over. Some of y’all need a glass of Finally to wake you up. You are free.
A song I attempted to sing some Sundays ago goes, “After while, it’ll all be over/After while the sun will shine.” The sun is shining for some of us, and we’re still stuck in the darkness. Walk in the light. Walk in the Word. One of the first Bible verses I’ve ever learned says, “Thy Word is a lamp to my feet, and a light to my path.” The Word says you’re free. The Word says you’re healed. So, what’s the problem? Vickie Winans says, shake yourself loose. The chains are already unlocked for you to be loose, just walk in it, believe it, and go wild.
I know I got to do better. I’m not a dancer, and never will claim to be. It was this past Sunday Night, 1/20/2013, and I was a little light in my feet. The anointing was so strong in Zion Tabernacle COGIC. And I didn’t do anything. I just let it pass. That could’ve been my night. That could’ve been my glass of finally. I was worried about what people would do. How people would act. How people will respond. This probably comes from watching church folks act the same way my whole life. When that glass of finally comes, when that breakthrough comes, don’t let it pass by. If you got to jump, jump. If you got to yell, yell. Don’t let the looks of jealous people affect your praise. They don’t know what you’ve been through. You’re finally free. Celebrate. It’s been a long time coming. A real long time coming for some of us, so when you’re finally get made free, why not celebrate? Let loose. Forget the jealous folk. Forget the judgers. Get yours.
Now, I’m not saying the next time I’m light on my feet, I’m going to go crazy, but I’m just saying what we should do. They say praise God when you feel like and when you don’t feel like it. Do we?
Continue to pray for yours truly and I’ll continue to pray for y’all. I pray that you got something out of it. I hope you feel free to share this around to your peoples. And if you got something to say, you’ll comment the blog.
