“Sometimes in July at the early hours of dawn with the sunlight already pouring in through the curtains since it was summer. I Suddenly felt a push to write ‘I Choose to Be Free’ says Yetunde Joyce- A Singer, Songwriter, An OAP and Host of Love Language. The Ireland based Nigerian Gospel singer went to explain the inspiration behind her song-“I choose to be free”
I get so inspired by the song ‘I Choose To Be Free’ as it is a song I wrote in 2011 summer when I was in a situation I did not see coming. Then I felt unsettled and restless with sleepless nights and cloudless mornings.
If you have come across a book titled ‘All the beggars riding’ by Lucy Caldwell, you might understand my situation. A story about Lara and her brother who lost their father in a terrible accident and was trying to erase the memories and get back on track.
So at that distressing time, I made sure I meditated everyday on Deuteronomy 30:9
“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life that you and your children may live“.
Everytime I make and declare the confession-‘I Choose to Be Free’ I start seeing results in my life!
Going to record the song with my producer Wole Oni in February 2013 was like a bubble in my chest. However, going into studio was a breathless experience as I felt the hand of God on the project.
When life flashes its dull moments and routines over the rawness, I strongly believe we should choose to be free from bondage, slavery, poverty, barrenness, manipulation, condemnation, retrogression, setback, affliction, oppression and everything that God does not approve of in our lives.
Yes! We should shine victoriously, be above and not beneath because God has set us FREE to rule as kings and priests forever!
So this is a way of giving back what God has blessed me with and I hope the song continues to bless all my friends and fans around the world.
