Day 16: Gbemiga Ogundeko

Hello 2020!!! It’s time to get out of the way.

Wow!!! It’s been a long road down here. I had really big plans for 2020. One of these plans was to have become a multimillionaire by the end of the year. I sincerely thought that I had it all figured out: I poured almost everything I had saved up from 5 years of working into investments. I already saw myself buying a house, a car for myself and another for my parents by the end of the year. Omo! My expectations were that large. Well, I was about to learn a lesson that God rules over the affairs of men and it’s through Him that we can really see the big picture.

By February, I had to leave my job cos I was no longer comfortable with the terms under which I was working. I had had enough of slaving away in the name of making a living. I am a prince, the son of a King. I deserve to be treated as such. Consequently, I became very broke cos I only had the little bits of my savings that I had not invested to live off. It’s sad but I should mention at this point that all my massive investments crashed badly.

I was out of job till August: 6 whooping months of living on God’s grace, solely! In the midst of all this, I ran a project, a musical video which got great support and came out as a huge success. God be praised.

All in all, 2020 has been a great year. I have been able to acquire a number of skills. I learnt and am still learning coding /programming, photography, fintech.

Also, I can say boldly that I grew significantly in my relationship with God. It has become easier to both receive and carry out His instructions.

To wrap up my chronicles from 2020, I want to simply express my sincere gratitude to Jesus for sending His spirit and mediating on my behalf. Who am I that the highest King would behold me with so much importance and love? I was trying to summarize the year and I came across a video on YouTube. I am a lover of nature and NASA discoveries, so I often feed my eyes with what glorious and wondrous things God has made and has allowed our scientists to begin to discover. Superb!

It’s a 6-minute video that shows me how indescribable God is, how immeasurable His sovereignty is and how unquantifiable His love for mankind is. No wonder the psalmist asks “WHAT is man that you are mindful of him?” he never said “Who is man, because at the end of the day, when you watch this video, you would understand that the best way to qualify man is WHAT and not WHO. In all these things, God chose to send His son to man. I simply wonder at why God had decided to be mindful of you and me even when we decide to treat Him anyhow. He is God all by Himself, yet He decided to be Emmanuel, so that when He is being described, man is an important factor. I can imagine God being sad many times because of how we treat Him, yet He had never stopped loving us. To consider what God created and what He rules over, to consider His capacity and capability, to consider all the things He made, no wonder He said earth is His footstool and Heaven is simply His throne. My God is everywhere and cannot be quantified or qualified.

This video humbled me and made me realize that I am truly adored by God, in spite of all that He had been able to construct, structure, make, design; the ones scientists could figure out and the ones that has not even been able to come to the heart of man.

After watching this documentary, all I could do was to cry. Lol. I became emotional because I was able to imagine the beauty God has surrounded himself with. The beautiful mix of colours. It is so beautiful to be concerned about 1,2,3 4,5,6,7 billion sinful mankind. Then the scripture came to my mind that “God neither sleeps nor slumber. He is so busy watching over you and me, amidst all the things He created. Now I realize why He doesn’t sleep nor slumber. He is busy about ME! He is busy about YOU!

2020 humbled me!
