So it happened that I was on transit from Lagos, heading back to Oyo. A few minutes after we left the park, we came heads on with road traffic that had built up for a while. The highlight is that there was this woman seated directly behind us, she just kept up with the “Ah; eh”, “Jesus comes to our rescue o, traffic!”. All these she said in Yoruba. I couldn’t help but smile. I was just wondering how she was being all dramatic and fearsome. Even though some minutes earlier, she happened to be the one who led the prayer for us on the bus on our exit from the bus park.
That is a typical human being for you. Even I sometimes, it’s like my “God I trust you” statement seems like “Mercy do you really trust Him” when I come face to face with some unexpected situations. At such points, I am just all clueless about what to do and even to maintain a clear frame of mind seems all difficult. Sighs, I know I can trust Him at all times regardless of my situation. The truth is searching deeply I do but the sight of the present reality is just staring me right in the face and I feel lost in it; feeling stuck in worry and even on what to do next.
But then there is this song that kept coming to my mind after my encounter with another unexpected some days ago and I want to share it with you.
“When we walk with the Lord
In the Light of His word
What a glory He sheds on our way;
While we do His goodwill,
He abides with us still,
And with all, who will trust and Obey…..”
Hymns are a blessing really!. I am here to state to you today: Humanly speaking, trusting Him can be crazy. It can literarily seem like you are being placed on a spinning carousel and you just can’t seem to stop it. But hey, looking at the latter part of the hymn stated. He will surely light up our ways and will shed His Glory on our paths.
When we choose God’s words and His ways always, He will come through. For me, I know He will. I can’t promise you when exactly though. But my heart believes this. And I know I need to get this sunk into my heart the more myself. But assuredly He will!.
God’s ways are never ours and His thoughts are extremely wider and unexplainable deeper and different. Sighs, I am sharing this even when it seems like I am being put in a fix myself. But I know He wants me to share this with you as well.
God is for you and He loves you despite it all. He’s got this and He’s got you!. Totally! 💯
God bless you!.
