Mercy Owusu urges Ghanaians to remain strong
One of the nation’s finest gospel musicians, Mercy Owusu, has asked Ghanaians to hold on strongly to God, with the belief that He is the only solution to their problems.
“We’re in very challenging times with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, but I believe when we look onto God and pray, we shall overcome,” she said.
Madam Owusu, 40, told The Spectator on Wednesday that she had gone through lots of difficult moments in life, “but anytime I turn to God in faith, He comes answering me”.
“Indeed, I will use this august medium to express my profound and heartfelt gratitude to the God Most High.
“As it’s written in His word, in all things – whether good or bad, give thanks to God, we have an assurance in the Lord that though the mountains be cast in the seas and the billows roll even in a fiercest hurricane, He is with us.”
According to Madam Owusu, who has been in the ministry for 17 years, the “raging and heartbreaking roar of coronavirus has become an albatross around the neck of every nation”, and urged those whose businesses and general life have been affected by the pandemic to stay strong in the Lord.
“As your beloved sister, I will like to encourage you to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. God tells us in his word not to fear. He says do not be afraid; neither be dismayed for I’m the Lord your God I will deliver you and surely I will keep you.”
The Techiman-born gospel musician stressed emphatically that no matter the storms in life, “having Jesus in the boat is an ultimate assurance that we would not capsize”.
“No matter the kind of job you’re doing; you may be the president, doctor, pastor, trader, farmer or any front line worker, just as you have always been before the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic, continue to discharge your duty in boldness and in courage.
“Yes, we are in dark moments but I want to assure that there shall be light at the end of the tunnel. Let’s keep our hands crossed and be fervent in prayer. I will leave you with a message of encouragement from Isaiah 41:10 onwards. Again be strong and courageous.”
Madam Owusu expressed her profound appreciation to Ghanaians for patronising her songs, advising them to adhere to all the COVID-19 safety protocols.
She has nine tracks to her credit. Among some of her popular songs on the ‘Ye Nsuro’ album are ‘Ayebiofo Nyame,’ Me wo Awurade,’ ‘Awurade Fie’ and ‘Ono no waye.’
