What I Learned

What a year, right?!

Covid happened.

EndSARS happened in Nigeria.

Poverty, sickness, death all happened and are still happening.

The Father may seem like one of those gods, sitting on his throne, powerless and ineffective, but that’s far from the truth.

Jesus, the Christ, came to give us abundant life and asks for little in return.

Only believe, and you will see God’s glory.

I have experienced grace, peace, and the best year of my life.

How?

My Father is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

He is looking out for me, present and powerful everywhere that I am.

I found this wisdom along the way, and I am still learning that everything He allows is for my good.

I am learning obedience through all the obstacles the enemy is throwing on my path, and I can’t have it any other way.

Broke through some months in the year, He would say, “focus on me. I’ve got you.”

No matter my position, no matter my account balance, I would wake up and say, this is the day the Lord has made, and I choose to rejoice. (Sometimes with tears in my eyes.)

I learned most of all, to stop looking to change the externals in my life. I am looking within. Distracted sometimes, I would tug my chin back to the throne of grace. Thrown by the enemy’s catapults, I’d pick myself up and continue to walk, even with a sprained or broken leg.

Why?

He is worth it. My Father is worth the pain of dying to live. He is better than all the silver and gold. After all these years, how much of them have I acquired anyway?

If you didn’t read or understand anything I wrote this year, understand this, He is, and He is a rewarder of those who seek Him with diligence.

God bless you, and don’t forget, until next time, be transformed!!

  1. I learnt obedience through what I have suffered. I learnt obedience by the will of the Father. I have come to know faithfulness. He is faithful. Without fail. I am learning what it is to be committed, faithful too, without fail. I have learnt not to grasp equally but to submit as Jesus did. I am grasping liberty. I am understanding what is light and how to shine and not hide or place a veil on my heart. To be true.
    Most of all, what love is. How love is the fulfillment of all law, all commandments. I am grateful for His mercy and grace without with it would be impossible to live, to walk.
    God bless you Soms for this marvelous place. God bless us all. ‘May the year coming begin a performance of all He has said. May we truly know the Lord, our Father and our King.
