It was a glamorous day, as everything had been set for resumption because I had just been admitted to study my aspiring course (Economics) though calls have been trooping in from my fellows whom we met during the institution admission processes. All and all the waiting day appeared like the dark disappearing as daylight ascend. I began the journey with other family members, looking forward for freedom because there will be as usual less dictates. On getting to campus being my first time of getting to a serene academic environment. I was so amazed and became products of pride for my parents and now feels it is time to enjoy life (viewing the gigantic structures). Days after, I found myself in a hurry to attend a lecture, I overheard discussions between some colleagues but the most captivating of all was the statement "It is not everyone matriculated will be graduated, with all sincerity I was hijacked and asked myself how could this happen. Later, I was hooked up in one of the school restaurants with the guy who made the statement. Very curious, it was unfolded to me how many have become product of circumstances, that led to his misfortunes due to his course of advancing to modernism and viewing the basis as stinking.
He said, "some will be a product of failure while some will be hijacked by circumstances and won't feel it safe to continue. And lastly some will be by death. Though, all categories of the listed above were backed up with stories within the campus which if time permits I will share later but nonetheless since then I kept my ego by reversing my earlier decision because life is mathematics if you do not calculate well you get the wrong answer i.e strategizing.
Believe me, I found myself in the religious realm but wasn't enough because I needed to be hardworking that grace may accompany my hardwork to attain the set goals as Paul warns in the Biblical record.
During my penultimate years, mysteries came knocking deserting my hearth as realities came daunting on me. But let me not bother you with my sad experience. Infact, it was unbearable. friends came sympathizing, relatives were not left behind I began turning neck (distractions). The future became gloomy and resorted to suicide.
On the eve day to take action, miraculously, a friend came knocking and said "don't do it but remain steadfast" he left. Amazingly, the voice of who I cannot distinguish up to date.
I took my Bible, read, and was referred to Job's predicament and his afterall success record. From then I stood ground and remained focused.
To sum it up, It was indeed a day of joy for my mum in particular my Dad as they shed tears of joy because all hope had been lost during the tussle. Kudos to them for trying their possible best. But things turn around when I could actually make extraordinary success from my career even as at in the institution before it was finally crowned with goodies and I find myself in a wrestling world of joy. Though challenges never cease coming but He is never tired of answering my prayer.
In conclusion, am sure you have derived a lesson to take home from this short excerpt especially putting your trust in God because you never can tell his plans for you.
Until anther moment remain blessed.
