It was a new year with everyone sending their followers and non-followers alike new year wishes and all the usual felicitations. I wasn’t left out. I got the wishes and sent some to my favourite followers. However, there was one that stood out. I didn’t know her. Hadn’t interacted with her even though we had recently just followed each other. @Omofola sent a wish saying God will turn my whole year around in a way that would leave me dazed. It was unusual for a reason. A complete stranger had voiced my silent prayer to God. I quickly claimed it. Fast forward a couple of days later, while having my quiet time and studying my Bible, I heard a voice in my spirit telling me words of declarations complete with Bible verses to back it up. Now the Bible says write the vision, make it plain. That had never happened to me before and I wasn’t going to let it go. I took out my notebook and wrote down those declarations along with the verses. Little did I know that from that moment, my life would change.
Every day while I prayed, I declared those words over my life, holding God to His Word. There was one that stood out to me- that I would have a testimony every month of this year. LMAO. Brethren, God’s word does not fall to the ground. I’m a living, walking witness. Every single thing I asked God for, I got it.
For a long time, I wanted to get this NYSC thing done but I kept having issues that made no sense. This time, it happened without my trying.
I asked God for a companion. I was tired of being single and I knew I was ready. I met one. We’re no longer together though but I’m glad I met him. Best 7 months of my life tbh.
Every time I needed help, it was available. The thing be like feem trick. This might be the usual for some people but not for me. Prior to this year, I’ve had to struggle for even the basic things. The ease with which I got the things I wanted often left me in tears.
Then disaster struck. A stupid mistake I made last year came back to bite me in the ass and I had to make the toughest decision since a long time. Usually it would be easy, but this time it came with a risk. A risk that still hangs over my head till date. But then, God came through. I got the help I needed.
The devil saw how he couldn’t get me, he decided to attack my family through their health. Having to spend the small 19,800 on unbudgeted bills was strenuous but as usual, God proved himself.
I think I’ll stop now because writing this is bringing me to tears and I don’t want to make typos. I know this is supposed to be a review but I said I was going to tell my testimony here. I’ve never felt God’s love for me like I did this year and I’m completely overwhelmed.
Thank you Fola. You opened the gates for this to happen.
Thank you Olatokunbo. If you didn’t pull me to tell it loud and put God to a test on the 30 days of Hope, I wouldn’t be here.
I’ve had an amazing year and there are 23 more days to go. Guess who’s toasting in anticipation of the miracles that are going to show up?
