Concert Experience: Hillsong United Live in Dubai

Concert Experience: Hillsong United Live in Dubai

Dubai, UAE: Hillsong United Live in Dubai!

Ticking off a bucketlist when the chance is at hand? Why not!?!

Right after hearing that Hillsong United is visiting the UAE this 2017, Kokobear and I decided to level-up praising God with this concert! It is actually one of our bucketlist! It’s a 2-day concert and 28th April just went soldout. So here we are on the 2nd day, 29th April – Saturday! Our transportation was arranged with fellow CFFL member, we rented a carlift and hit the road at 5:00 pm to reach Dubai Duty Free Tennis Stadium inside the Irish Village.

We arrived at quarter to 7, right in time when the gates opened. Sis Rose, Sis Dianne, Sis Mariel & Sis Vielinda of SFL were with us! But we have to part ways because we’re in the platinum area!

Here are a few of the songs they’ve performed in this 2 and a half hour concert:

  • Touch the Sky
  • Oceans
  • Prince of Peace
  • I surrender
  • Let There Be Light
  • New Songs: Beautiful Name, Even When it Hurts, One Day.

If I have counted it correctly, there were around 22 songs and every single one speaks directly to the heart. I have to mention too, that the in between prayers were as powerful as the songs! And one of the many is this:

. . . “Don’t just go to the church, BE THE CHURCH” – JD

Song after song, I found myself swept away. Memories of life comes flooding through my thoughts. I found myself having difficulty in containing the emotions especially when From the Inside Out was playing. I raise my hand, sang, shouted, cried, lifted my heart and of my pains, worshipped and praised God. Never did I expect an emotion so strong that made me feel every single word of the lyrics to be so full, soulful and meaningful at its peak! Such a spirit filled ambiance, I hear some people praying in tongues. Emotions? ECSTATIC! In Awe of how Great JESUS is!

Let me share some lyrics that have captured my heart and indeed pierced it:

“Every word u have spoken, I will not be shaken”
.
“A Passion worth living”
.
“Oh be Still My Heart, I know u are God, I know u hear my prayer”
.
“Spirit leads me my Trust”


Check out these few snaps we’ve taken during the event.

NOL Card Recharge thru ADCB App

I rarely use a bus, but in some circumstances I do. So recently I found out that instead of making a queue to re-charge your NOL Card, here is actually an app that provides a faster way to re-charge!

But you have to be an ADCB user… (I’m not sure if other banks do have their own app) – as of me ADCB App (from the App Store). Here is the step by step guide to that.
Of course you have to download the ADB App first, which looks like this:

1. Log-In to your app

2. On the main page are the options:

 

Choose PAY BILLS

3. Then click the option NOL TOP UP (second choice on the right)

4. Add a PAYEE

 

Press PAY NOW and follow further required details

5. Add your NOL TAG ID – This is the 10-digit number at the back of your NOL Card.

Swipe the button to choose ADD LIST OF REGISTERED SERVICES so that you don’t need to repeat this process again in your next transactions.

6.  Give this Service a name. In my case I call it NOLjm.

7. Enter Amount. They have a minimum of 20 AED.

 

Enter your desired cash and hit next.
8. Verify Payment

 

Click submit

9. Enter OTP (One-Time-Password) which they will send to your mobile and click continue!

 

And it will show you this!

Hope this one helps!

God bless!
