Hey guys! The past weekend was an extremely busy one, it was from one occasion straight to the other, and another and another and by the time I'd get home the only thing I could do was to hoist my body into the sack, thus my absence.
During breakfast yesterday I had a thought about a situation and another thought followed; the only one that can salvage this is God. And then another, but can God?
Yes, you would wonder why someone who believes in God would ask that question but at that moment the magnitude of the situation seemed too great, the situation itself seemed completely hopeless, beyond redemption, so where does one even begin?
I remembered how Pastor Paul Adefarasin says Favour is God doing that thing that no man can do, something that ONLY He can take the glory for. And how the Head Pastor from one of the HOTR branches in the north called Him a God of tight corners; when you're trapped in a corner so small and tight that it's not humanly possible to move an inch or turn around or come out, that's where this God steps in; tight corners. He likened it to a nine month baby in the womb. At that point the womb has become too small, too tight, too cramped and there's no space for baby to go left or right but to come out. Even in situations as tight as the baby in the womb, except this time there's no visible exit... That's where A God of tight corners steps in.
Yet in reality, hearing these sermons and feeling very inspired and encouraged is one thing, but facing a seemingly hopeless situation with no hope for reprieve or restoration is another. And so it occured to me that maybe hearing others' talk about times that they've been in situations that they thought to be hopeless and beyond redemption, and then eventually climb out of that black hole, would be really encouraging.
So I'm asking, can you relate, have you ever been in a situation you thought was completely hopeless but now it's all a thing of the past? Please talk to me, let's share. Your story could be the bricks that builds or rebuilds a fellow's faith.
*Just thought to add, because some of you are just too sweet and next thing I know mails would start pouring in, I'm doing very fine*
