When my ex and I broke up, my world crashed like the naira that year. Even though it was God's will that it ended, it was difficult to accept. During this period, he got a big appointment that changed his level baje baje. I would lay in bed and cry because I was there in the humble beginnings when we would pray for such a day to come. I would tell God, "But I'm supposed to be reaping the fruits of my labor." I felt God was being unfair. I eventually had to delete him, his siblings and friends from every platform whatsoever. Chest pain cannot come and kill me. 😩 Recently, I discovered he was still following me on IG so I decided to do a little 'sofo' on his page. A tiny voice warned me not to but I wouldn't listen. 😏 I kept scrolling till I got to his birthday post where he acknowledged someone. My sofo will not let me rest and so I clicked on the page and...it was the new bae. (This is the moment I should have pulled an acrimony stunt but I will not die sha 😂😂😂). My heart sank and this darkness just overshadowed me. I left the page and was like God, this should have been me o. Why did we have to break up na. Then I heard, "I told you not to go wandering." At that instant, I had to block him patapata for my own happiness and sanity. 🙄
There are times you'd look around you and begin to wonder why it seems like everyone is making progress and you are not. We have to be careful at times like this especially when praying. °
One, God is not moved by tears. Yes, he is compassionate but you can't bribe God with tears. Lai Lai. Ask David. °
Two, don't try to bully or nag God into blessing you. "Ehn, you did it for so and so. When will you do my own". Ko Le werk. Ask Hannah.
Many people get so fixated on what they want God to do for them that they ignore the place of relationship. Nobody likes an opportunist. Every time, give me,give me. Are you the owner of Givenchy? 😒That's why sometimes we don't get answers to some prayers because our intent is so misplaced. °
Evaluate your prayer points. If they are selfish in nature, readjust. Let me come and be going. Ejo mi ti n poju. 😂
