My Experience Today
Went to Adekunle Ajasin University (ondo state university, Nigeria) today and met a guy who left me speechless.
The guy walked up to me and offered to share his umbrella with me (it was raining). In my inquisitive manner asked what he came to do in the school, considering the on-going strike. He told me he saw an advert and came to apply. Knowing how porous the recruitment process is, in academics, I asked if he was expecting to be selected. And his answer took me by surprise, he said:
“I have prayed for so long for a job but if I don’t apply for one, how would I know if He (God) had answered my prayer. I have faith not in the system but in my God and now I am working my faith”
I couldn’t probe further, simple speechless, I just said in my thoughts that God accept the challenge and prove yourself.
Friends where lies your faith? Are you putting to use? The ball is in your court, it’s your life, put it in the right hands.
“My child, a never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying. Never let loyalty and kindness leave you! Tie them around your neck as a reminder. Write them deep within your heart. Then you will find favor with both God and people, and you will earn a good reputation. Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” – Proverbs 3:1-6
