In 2012, I was involved in a ghastly car accident on my way to writing my final exams in Law school. This held me back one semester and I was devastated. Then I thought one semester was too much of a wait, not knowing God had a better plan for me. If anyone could tell me then that by April 2015, I would not have achieved my dream of being an attorney, I would have laughed so hard at that person. Never say never. Our God gives us something on the inside that is greater than anything that is outside.
From the time I had the accident in 2012, it has been one thing after the other. In 2013 when I thought I was ready to move on, I slipped and fell on the stair case at my job which left me on crutches for about 8 months. I was so devastated and pushed hard to write my Bar exams since that was my goal. Again things did not work my way because on day 2 of writing, I was rushed to the hospital because of unbearable headache. 2013 went by with no exams written but more was coming my way. I was diagnosed with fluid in the brain(Hydrocephalus) and this just crushed me totally. I thought my world had come to an end and at that point realized my faith was not strong enough.
Now how many of you would have given up by now? I narrate my story not to impress you but to impress upon you that we all have our journeys on this earth. Never compare yours with anyone. More important always give God, the Almighty the praise for He is on the throne all the time. I have been on treatment since then and waiting for a clean bill of health from the doctors so that I could get back to my dream, writing the Bar exams right? Hahaaa! April 2, 2015, I am on my way to pick up my son from school when a truck ran through the stop sign and hit my car on the passenger's side. The car is beyond repairs but I came out without a scratch on my body. The Lord is teaching me a lesson which I still haven't understood but He is always there to cover me with His blood. I write this testimony in joyful celebration of God's blessings. This is because when we are hesitant to join with others in joyful celebration of God's blessings, we are like the wall- flower at the dance, too shy to step out of the shadows onto the dance floor.
At every stage of our life, we have been given unique and personal blessings by our heavenly Father, blessings He intends that we recognize and use to benefit ourselves and others. If we hold the blessing of a positive outlook, share hope; if good health, share help; if intelligence, share insight; and if curiosity, discover more about God's goodness and tell others what you have found. Coming out of this accident with no scratch on my body is worth celebrating. I am therefore celebrating my blessings by stepping out of the shadows and sharing with others. I have learnt never to spent time thinking of the "why me" but to continue giving praise to the Lord for it could have been worse if only I knew. I will live you with this;
Count your gain instead of all your losses
Count your joys instead of your woes
Count your friends instead of your foes
Count your courage instead of your fears
Count your health instead of your wealth And
Count on God instead of yourself.
Cheers to your success,
