Hey guys! How are you doing? I know it’s not Friday or anything but I just couldn’t keep what happened to myself, and I couldn’t just limit it to my close friends alone…
Almost an hour ago, something happened that shook me. I’m literally still shaking as I write this down.
My parents sent me on an errand to the roundabout in my area, and I did what I was sent to do. On my way back, I had to cross the main road to get to my junction. I hate crossing busy roads, but it’s not something I can avoid. So, a couple of people were trying to cross the road too so I joined them. The road became clear soon, save for a gigantic trailer that was incoming. But it wasn’t so close but we started crossing. I had to run because the trailer was getting closer. Unfortunately for me, my slippers wasn’t designed for running so as I got to the middle of the road, I slipped and fell big time. People were screaming buy no one could get to me at the cost of their own lives, I don’t blame them, mind you. I was in pain but I knew that of I didn’t get up immediately, I would get hit and so, I stood up quickly with all the strength I had left in me and crossed to the median. When I got there, I looked back just to see how huge the trailer was and shivered, thinking of how close I had come to being hit by such an enormous thing as that.
I crossed the other part of the road and got to the junction. Like a robot, I walked down my street, ignoring the calls and words of sympathy from people. I knew they meant well but I wasn’t thinking straight. I was shaking inside and I just wanted to leave the open space. Luckily for me, my mom’s shop is just a stone’s throw away from the junction so I got inside. My dad was attending to a customer so I went inside where my mom was and told her what happened amidst heavy tears. The rest is history.
‘Thank You Jesus’ has been my thought since, I had to lie down for a bit but as soon as I was calm, I took my tab, texted my closest friends and came straight to tell you guys.
I don’t even want to think about how differently things would have played out if God wasn’t by my side. If God hadn’t made me get up when I fell at that exact time, one second would have been too late. God’s mercy preserved my life and I will forever be grateful. In fact, I still feel like I haven’t thanked Him enough.
As I laid down to rest, something told me ‘Just Imagine the amount of battles God has been fighting for you that you don’t even know about. What happened was the battle for your life that you knew of’ which means that there have been many attempts against my life that I’m not even aware of. God is truly good. If you don’t have Jesus in your life, what are you even doing?
You need to use this post to check yourself. If you are not on the right standing with God, you have to come to him, you need to accept Him into your life and you can do that by believing with all your heart that he sent his son to die for you on a cross. You need Jesus right now so please just stop what you are doing and take a moment to ask him into your life and tell him you surrender all to him.
I know I sound like a preacher but I don’t care. If I didn’t make it today how would I have faced my Lord knowing I haven’t actually told you to surrender to him? My number one purpose is to lead people to Jesus so I won’t stop doing that. In fact,I’m going to work harder on this.
Please guys, thank God on my behalf, what happened today is nothing short of a miracle and proof that God is always going to be there for me, fighting the ultimate battle for my life.
I think that is all for today, I’m still in a bit of a shock.
Take note that this is not the post for this week. I just had to share it with you. I will post tomorrow as usual so take care till then💖
p.s I’m also grateful my wig didn’t fall off when I fell, it would have been a total disaster for me😀😀😀
Note to self: make my cornrows neater so if my wig ever falls off (never I hope🙏), I won’t be ashamed
Thank you Jesus!!!! 💖💖💖
