….or blue on my grey. You can call it the way you like as long as you get what I’m trying to say to your heart.
I had tried convincing Ibk, my sister about postponing my trip to Lekki till Wednesday majorly because i felt I didn’t have the energy to face Lagos traffic on a Monday morning. I didn’t want to have to wake up very early too and I had to be at work (Berger) around 10 ish so that was the only option I had. She insisted that I go on Monday ‘cos she needed the information I was to get as soon as possible.
The first alarm rang at 4:30am and God in heaven knows I got angry just hearing that alarm ring ( I even needed to set like 4 different alarms so that at all at all na im bad pass and I didn’t want to take any chances. I woke up feeling very nauseous too. The morning couldn’t have been any worse already. It was still quite dark and I was going to have to cross the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
Talk about negative energy, I was filled and overflowing. I
managed to have had my devotion and all that had to do with leaving the house in the morning and thankfully got a bus on time. Not long into the journey, I slept off and so soundly at that.
We had almost gotten to my bus stop when the gentleman beside me woke up . I opened my eyes to see that it was raining heavily. Ah! I didn’t even think of leaving the house with a shower cap. I got to my bus stop, alighted and ran as fast as my legs could carry me to a covering where I was going to wait how long I wasn’t sure of.
The rain had subsided albeit it still threatened to fall . My mood was beginning to get sour again when I looked up. There was grey sky everywhere but right in the middle of all the grey, they was this tiny hint of blue. “Okay God, what are you trying to say?” I thought to myself and repented of my sour mood.
It was just a reminder of the hope found in Jesus. Like the two big and beautiful rainbows I saw the previous week.
Dear friend, remember what Paul said. Though we experience every kind of pressure, we’re not crushed. At times we don’t know what to do, but quitting is not an option (2 Cor 4:8 TPT). Some days its like We can see or feel hope slowly ebbing away. Let’s not forget that our hope is secured in God. He’s on our matter and He’s working things out.
