“The Greater the obstacle the more Glory in overcoming it.” In a pin drop silence there I sit, reminiscing about childhood memories, how great were the days. Oh what a beautiful way to celebrate life…(cracks a smile) Looking back lead me to back tracing the circumstances and challenges that prepared me to be where I am today and the person I have become. There is nothing wrong in self-reflection; it’s a good way to find ways to a better you, a humbling moment it is.
Life is indeed a roller-coaster, there were times where I had broken moments, things got rough and though and left me wondering and asking many questions, what is my next move? Where do I run to? Will I make it? Who do I run to? Will I see change? Through these dark days I called onto God, I would look up and say “Semphete wena yoo rategang, Mmoloki waka, (Please don’t pass me by, my saviour) I need you, I have nowhere to go, you are my helper.” Well, eventually there was light at the end of the tunnel, but my first reaction would be “OH WHAT A COINNCIDENCE!” Now question is, was it a coincidence or God’s hand in my life? Many are times when we go through difficult times and our story surprisingly changes we think it was just a coincidence.
Getting a great connection with God made me realised there is no coincidence but it is the Lord’s work. A change in my situations was all God’s plan for me. The Lord declared, for I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. Indeed God listened to my prayers and changed my story.
God is our only source of hope, Believe in Him, Trust in Him, Meditate on His Word. When God sees you suffer, he speaks, listen to him for directions. Blessings come from God, thank Him all the time for we know that those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called for his purpose. Look at God; it is All GOD, not a coincidence.
