I woke up this week to a praise fest in my spirit on realizing that it was the beginning of a new chapter in my life. The Lord has been so good to me; my life has been filled with ‘deliverance upon deliverance’ and ‘blessings upon blessings’.
Looking back on these last few years, my life has been filled with so many lessons and still learning as the days go by; I have learned the discipline of faith, work and delayed gratification. I have matured while learning to unlearn some things along the way. I have learned what faith really means – simply believing what God says. It is so funny how we grew up with a religious mindset of once we prayed about something, we did not need to play our own part. I have learned in the last few years that partnership and son-ship does not work with that religious mindset rather I had a part to play in the manifestation of my success story.
I have experienced God’s love afresh through the birth of our son and still understanding better how God wants us to be with Him by watching our son grow. I have learned patience works excellently well with faith. One of my most treasured memories was watching the transformation of our son, from holding his hands to walk and in less than a few seconds, he walking on his own. I learned in that instance that when we learn to walk with the Almighty, we learn more and more to be like Him.
I have learned the value of great friendship within my family and those I now call family – though not biological. I love them all and I really appreciate how they have helped me grow. I am experiencing the importance of consistency, quality, great value and excellence. I am training under the greatest leader of all time to be a great leader and business enthusiast (starting your own business would definitely realign your previous world view..lol)
I have learned more about my sister ‘wisdom’ and friend ‘discernment’; that only in His Word would I find wisdom and He only unveils. I am ready for this new chapter of my life and eagerly await the many wonders, lessons and victories that await me in this new season.
I say a big thank you to everyone for adding to my growth process especially to Ima Mmi and I pray that the Almighty Father would reveal Himself more to you in this new season.
Happy Birthday Uhunoma, welcome to your new Chapter!
