Hello Great People..........
Yeah I know I have been very lazy lately, sorry about that, I've been trying to make this work for us all... I promise to be up and doing. LOL.....
Now lets get down to the order of the day. Lately I've been sooooooooo worried about some issues in my life,issues that are not supposed to bother me per say and just last week I was led to do this.
I dated back to this particular day in the month of November, 2012 as I prepared for a Leadership Summit held by Daystar Church in Ikeja, Lagos. I hurriedly left the house without proper make-up,without food yeah,a little angry (can't say why ooooo!!!! LOL ). I finally got to Oshodi, Lagos and I decided to wait for my friend, Esther (who actually was the reason I left house early). As I waited for her around a buka (FOOD COURT) and I (dunno why I chose a buka of all places to wait for her forgetting that I had an empty tummy), I decided to take charge of my environment like I always do. I observed things; the woman selling the food, her competitors, her fellow neighbours selling different things like recharge-vouchers,fruits,newspapers,etc and that was when I saw it....... YESSSSS!!!!!!!!! The Joy and Happiness they derived in doing what they were doing; (tho literally they hoped for a change) but for that moment God led me to see something beautiful about it. The woman who is a native of Akwa-Ibom, had a pretty daughter who helped with the plates. They both entertained customers with jokes and stories, and for that moment they were not worried about anything. I laughed hard at their jokes and smiled at their stories and all this while I forgot what brought me there initially, I also noticed that the man sitting opposite me was staring widely and i could read his thoughts "Wetin dis fyn geh dey do 4 here?'' "Abi she wan chop?'' "Maybe she na makerter with one bank ooo?'' ''Abeg wetin be my own make i jus chop komot go make my moni juoo".. I giggled as i met his gaze and then i reliased why i waited in that place.
GOD opened my eyes to see that this people at that moment were grateful for what they had and where not worried unlike me, I complained about everything that was not working well, instead of me to acknowlegde HIM for the things that worked well,for the things HE has done in the past and the things HE is set to do. So I bowed my head and said a simple prayer "Thank You Father".
What is it that thing that is not going on well,worry not instead Thank GOD!!!!!!!!!!..
Bishop David Oyedepo will always say and I quote "If you Thank GOD for HIS FINGER you would see HIS HAND, and if you Thank GOD for HIS HAND, you will see HIS OUTSTRETCHED ARM"
Let us learn to worry not about anything and live each day thanking GOD, and believing HIM because HE never fails.
