Ladies and Gentlemen, this is an official notice/ Everyone of you listen up for you must hear this
This is a Disclaimer! Let there be no misunderstanding/ By definition it is renouncing or repudiating a connection, or as I’ll simply like to call it: Rebranding
In a typical disclaimer, one might denounce a title, a property or right of ownership/ But this disclaimer began with the good shepherd and his search for the lost sheep
I don’t know about you but I used to be among this herd/ For so long did the master look for me, call to me, and all He really wanted was to be heard
How could I hear him though with my ears plugged to the tunes of lust and malice/ Leaving me lost in a strange land, wondering like Alice
You see then I thought that strange land was mine/ Until I realized it was a field of destruction: land mine.
Back then I saw life as my station so I Played it/ Too busy merry going round I got dizzy in it
I thought I was living free and being “me”/ Ironically I didn’t even know who me was, or who I was meant to be
I defined myself by what others said or what I saw myself doing/ Little did I know that my actions shouldn’t define me but I should define my actions, truly
For those of you who didn’t quite catch that/ I meant that who I am should inform what I do, that’s a fact!
Forget what some philosophers say about existence preceding essence/ Cos if what I do determines who I am that would make the creator’s work all nonsense
Just because an Eagle behaves like a chicken doesn’t make it a Chicken/ It only means it’s an Eagle dwelling in darkness, in need of a beacon
Speaking of beacon, let’s take a moment and talk about light/ I mean that same one scriptures say the darkness cannot comprehend its might
Hehe, this just reminds me of the Green Lantern’s creed/ In gloomy times and dangerous moments, His courage it did feed
At those times he’d say: In brightest day, in blackest night, No evil shall escape my sight/ Let those who worship evil’s might, Beware my power, Green Lantern’s light!!!
So back to the case, my life didn’t reflect the image the architect had drawn-up/ I was broken, misguided, afraid, defensive, proud, hateful and so much more
How could I possibly see light in that instance/ How could I even do right in that circumstance
How can you explain the concept of color to a blind man?/ Or convince a cancer patient that God has a plan
Yet in all of this, the savior kept calling out my name/ He understood my shortcomings cos He knew my frame
I had run so much, I had no where else to run / With no more strength to move I stopped and looked up to the sun
The son who I heard took pain in place for my peace/ So that day, (June the 30th, 2005) I asked Him to make me whole. Jesus Make me whole please
The transformation that followed was prime, the reconstruction divine, and the jubilation mine.
I was so excited I had to let everyone know/ But at the same time had to let the old me go
So now this is my disclaimer! Let there be no misunderstanding/ I hereby denounce my title of sinner, and my right to sin
I also hereby denounce my sinful nature and announce that henceforth in Christ I am a new creature
I renounce brokenness and embrace peace/ I renounce lust, masturbation, pride, selfishness, and every form of malpractice
I give up my right to envy, to covet and my right to disregard authority/ I have a new title, a new land, and a refined deed
Just to be clear, a deed is defined as “a legal writing or document executed under seal”/ The seal in this case is the blood of Christ, and my faith and confession makes it a deal
According to Romans the tenth chapter and verse nine/ If I believe in my heart and confess with my mouth with Jesus I will dine
So now this vessel is under new management, God’s got the C OF O/ I’m dwelling in the company of Angels, and God’s the CEO.
Now the Holy Spirit has my button and direct access to my heart/ Now no disease, temptation or doubt can ever tear us apart
I’m one with Christ, in Him I Live and have my being/ This ain’t no semi detached living, no I’m fully sold out to Him
There’s no turning back, there’s no backsliding/ I’ve burnt the bridge to the land of sin and cut the strings that held me in
This is a disclaimer! Don’t get it mixed up/ I forever renounce life at the bottom cos I’m sited with Christ at the top
Goodbye world, I have no business with you anymore/ My contract with you has been annulled since Light kicked darkness out the door
I now claim ownership of my mind, my body and my spirit/ But they’re not mine anyways, cos I gave it to Christ and only him can keep it.
