Yesterday I got a mail from one of our readers in responses to the post; This Life Isn't Exactly What My Heart Expected. I hope that this will inspire and encourage a lot of us.
Told you sometime ago that you are my favorite writer... just finished reading your post on the reality of life. I can totally relate to it. I remember planning to graduate at 21, getting a job at a bank. Getting married at 23. Marrying my soul mate... etc. my reality hit me when I got pregnant at 15... having a baby, attempting sucide at 19.... loosing my mom who also happens to be my bestie, my twinie, my backbone, my helper, my everything at 21... as the first child, I instantly became the mother to my 4 siblings and my daughter. Still looking for admission at 21... eventually got into a school.. my dad married again when I was 22 to a woman that was not nice at all...issues were too much I developed high blood pressure. Eventually struggled to graduate at 25. Several severe heartbreaks in between. Hmmmmm, Thelma.. U can't imagine what I went through.
I don't wish to bore u with this. The whole point is to encourage you that when God will turn things around for u, it will seem that the blessings are too much for u sef. In my second semester final year. I met this guy and he told me he was going to marry me. We had our introduction the week before I left for nysc camp, got married a week before passing out.. he is my everything. Life was looking good for me for the first time in my life. After wedding, it seemed the good stopped. Couldn't get pregnant, didn't have a job, my husband wasn't doing well... someone told me to go to Cele church. I made up my mind I wasn't going to go, instead I prayed and fasted in my home. I started getting business offers at first. I started aso ebi packaging. My husband's business picked up too. During one of my trips to balogun market , I started feeling dizzy, I took a test, I was pregnant. Everything was falling back together for me.
As if that was not enough, I got a good job. I didn't apply, no test, no interview. My friend just asked if I wanted a job and pushed in my CV. A week after I got that job, I got another one. Now my problem( not really) is I'm one month pregnant and i have a new job. How do I code the pregnancy. That same month, my husband got a brand new car. Latest model. Also in that same month, I got an alert from my dad that made my bank put a restriction on my acct till I showed face. For the first time in my life... I had millions in my acct belonging to me. I can afford to take trips, invest. Take care of my siblings... All these things happened in a month. After all my suffer head for years, it took only a month for God.
My whole point is. You are a good person, you don't need to worry or cry anymore. Know that when God decides it's your turn, nothing can change it and I believe it's gonna be soon. You know what I say now? I say God has been sitting in a corner watching me cry, worry, run around and having high BP and he is saying to his angels " look at this girl I have big plans for running around instead of chilling and trusting in me. "....
Trust in God, keep being the good person u are, and don't forget to share with us when things turn around for u.
And so to every blog reader I say, keep trusting in God and remember to share your testimonies with us when they start rolling in. Thanks a lot T.A for sharing your story with us.
