Day 27: Comfort

Time would not permit me to give details of all the ups and downs, happy and sad moments I experienced this year 2019. Before I share my experience, I just want to say a big thank you Adepero Ajayi, thank you for accepting the call. God bless you real good. 

This year kicked off with so much excitement and anticipation. I was awarded as the best worker in my church (Royalty Christian center) went home with a washing machine, flat-screen television and chest freezer, I was so overjoyed and grateful. I was also expectant for my admission into the University of Lagos after four attempts of sitting for JAMB and ten years after leaving secondary school. I got the shock of my life when I wasn’t granted the admission, I was sure I would get it this time with God by my side. I cried and cried and stopped crying (it’s ok to cry, it’s not ok to cry for too long). To quit wasn’t an option, although I felt like it sometimes but I refused to succumb. All these made me realize I needed to fight the good of faith, and then God’s word reminded me “these light afflictions are but for a moment.”

Having lost my brother and father to the cold hands of death some years ago wasn’t easy to bear, life became tough for me. However, when I sleep and wake the next day it gives me the assurance that He isn’t done with me and as long as I have life there is hope for me to be what God wants me to be.  

 While still trusting God for a breakthrough, I tried reaching my mum (I don’t live with her), all effort to reach her seemed abortive, so I decided to reach her friend who informed me that she had some legal issues she was trying to work out. I was so devastated. To cut the long story short, God heard my cry and intervened and she was delivered. 

 God showed up for me again this year, I was due to relocate from where I was to another place. I trusted God for my own apartment not knowing God was about to amaze me, he stirred up the heart of a blessed family who heard that I needed a place and they accommodated me. That was how God favored me, and by the wisdom of the Holyspirit, an idea to start a business came to my mind, a business of men accessories like lapels, cufflinks, tie, and pocket square. So I started DYNASTY TOUCH  and it has been from glory to glory. 

  As I said before, quitting was not an option, so I decided to further my education and I opted for NOUN where I was granted admission. I look forward to resuming in 2020 to the glory of God.

Of a truth, I have tasted and seen that the Lord is God. In all these, I learned more about faith, patience, and trust in God. 

 In all these, I can say I OVERCAME only by the grace of God. Thank you for your time.
