THANKFUL FOR HIS HELP

My heart is filled with gratitude. At the end of last year, I wasn’t in a good place. There was this heart-gnawing fear. A new phase was coming in my life and the uncertainty of the future just ate me away. My relationship with God was on a zig-zag lane and the downward lane seemed to last for longer periods than the upward. I was honestly so scared about the future. A lot of what ifs.



For the first time, I asked for a word for the coming year (2016). I blogged about it hereI I have heard people say they do this so I decided to try even though I couldn’t think of a “word” that will possibly deal collectively with all the commotions going on in my head. Then on the 31st night, I got the word! From Isaiah 41: 10-14. In three places, God said, fear not, for I will help you. I had a kind of peace and certainty that I’ve never felt before.

Did He help me? Oh sure, He did.

When I called, He answered.

When I lacked, He made a way

When I was scared, He calmed me.

He connected me with the right people, the right friends. He favoured me. Even when I wanted stress, He said No.
This year I completed my law school program, I know at least five people who died. One was my course mate in the university. Not only did I complete it, but I did so successfully. It went without a hitch, no queries, no problems with the lecturers, no lack, no externship issues, no dinning issues, and no hostel issues. God was there all the way. I passed the exams, I went through the screening exercise successfully, was called to bar successfully. It was favour favour all the way. There are so many things He did that I cannot even begin to explain. During the exams, it was like God himself was setting the questions! Ah! I tried chronicling my law school miracles but my book almost finished and that wasn’t what I bought the book for. lol

God delivered I and my parents from death by accident. Oh it was a clear case. I was just watching myself going to die but God averted it! My sister delivered safely after 16 hours of labour and two miscarriages.
My relationship with God skyrocketed. The zig zag life reduced drastically. I got to know God on a whole new level and see Him at work.

Deliverance from sicknesses, from fire disaster, from costly incidents, from loss, from lack, so many things that I cannot list.

Who am I that you are mindful of me? I am grateful to you Lord for you are worthy and true.

P.s the blog is still on. I'm sorry for the long absence. I'm really working on reducing it. See you all next year. Don't forget to enter into the year with thanksgiving.

Love

THREE TIPS FOR DEALING WITH 'STRANGERS'

Before a person became a friend, he/she was a 'stranger', then maybe an acquaintance before attaining friendship. In life, many circumstances or situations tend to take us away from family and friends that we are so used to and safe around such as NYSC, industrial training, internship, law school, medical school, competitions or even relocation.

FROM THE MIND OF THE BLEEDING WOMAN

It’s another month, November. Time for my monthly records. I pick up my pen to record in my diary on how my life has been or should I say how my life has always been and still is, in the past month.

Unfortunately, I have nothing new to write. It’s basically the same old story with, just different landmarks.

SEARCHING #7

'Emeka is that you?' I asked expecting otherwise

'Nope' answered a female voice.

 Ha! I knew no girl, so who could that be.

'Who then?' I said getting up.

'It’s dera your classmate.'

I didn’t know any dera but it would be rude bombarding her with questions with the door to her face plus I didn’t even know anyone in my class.
I opened the door but it was so dark that I couldn’t see her face.

'Ah! It’s dark already, I didn’t know that. Please come in.'

'Thank you' she said stepping in. I was beginning to think that you were dead or something worse.

'What could be worse than dead?'

'I don’t know' she shrugged.

I now remembered her. The overly outspoken girl in the class who somehow, always had her manners with her but would always interfere when not wanted. Emeka would write me down for not knowing her name. Everyone knew her because of her interference spirit. She had not interfered in my business because I had not cr…
