There was a time in my life I felt the entire world was working against me. A time when I was abandoned and forsaken. I couldn’t afford a square meal let alone eat good food. I went hungry for weeks, months, without hope of a good life. I begged to eat, bought things on credit and when I couldn’t pay I loose my integrity. That was when I realised that poverty was not just a problem but a death sentence.
I became ‘Oliver Twist’ written by Charles Dickens. There was nothing to show for. My close friends deserted me due to my incessant demands. My colleagues stopped communicating because I had nothing to offer. I roamed down the streets, trekking long distances for any kind of job but to no avail. There was none to run to. I was living in a leaking room, wearing the same shirt and trousers all over again. My health deteriorated and I lost my sense of value.
I was mocked, nobody believed in me, nobody expected anything from me. I ran to some people for help but they gave me excuses that is capable of making me question God. I felt pain, agony and discouragement. A lot of thoughts went through my mind, temptations came like the rivers of Babylon and my spirit couldn’t control me. I had negative options flashing my mind, then one day something happened.
I looked through the window and it was dark and I heard a voice say to me, ‘the darkness will soon give way for the daylight to come’.
That night I went to God in prayer. I told God, ‘ENOUGH IS ENOUGH’.
I asked the Holy Spirit to give me an idea that will change my life. That same night I couldn’t sleep because I was expecting an answer. Before morning the Holy Spirit gave me an idea.
The next day I started working on the idea and to my greatest surprise I got a contact who started working with me. Within a month I began to get alerts on my bank account. What happened? A sound idea was all I needed. Today my story has changed.
Your background is not the reason your back should be on the ground, it is not the reason you have to go underground.
There is something you have not done. You have tried the rest. You have tried other means. You have tried options. I want you to try something. Try God.
