I had to embark on a journey to get a document some days back and that day was a remarkable and humbling one for me.
I was able to fill all the necessary forms at the office and by the time I was through with the processing, I received a not too pleasant information. I was told that the document wasn’t going to be ready for several weeks. I was like, “what”? This was not the first time I would apply for this kind of document and it always took just 2-3days. “Change had changed this too?” I asked playfully.
Anyway, I resigned to fate and left the office. As I got to the junction and waited for a cab, I noticed a woman standing by the door of a car parked right at the junction looking at me.
I felt it weird that someone was gazing at me that much. At first, I felt I was imagining things but after a few seconds, I was certain that my mind wasn’t playing games with me. I saw what I saw.
Instead of waiting for a cab, I hopped on a bike almost immediately. I just wanted to leave that place as soon as possible.
However, immediately I sat on the bike, I felt that I should have just walked up to the person to ask what the issue was but I waved it off.
I stopped the bike man at the next junction. I decided to wait for a cab right there.
Lo and behold, the same car that I had seen earlier parked right beside me.
The first thing that crossed my mind was to say to myself, “Blood of Jesus”.
There were two women in the car. The older woman was the one driving. She called out to me and I looked into the car. I saw that the face was unfamiliar but then I said, “Good afternoon”.
“Please, are you Mrs Omolola Omosebi?” She asked.
I paused for a few seconds trying to see if I could place a finger on where I knew her from before answering in the affirmative.
She exclaimed and told the other woman, “You see. I told you it looked like the person in the photo.”
She then faced me and told me her name. She said she quickly logged into her Facebook account to check my profile when she first saw me stand at the other junction and that was why she kept looking at me there.
She then asked if I stayed in that city to which I answered, “No”. She asked me what I had come to do then. I explained to her and when she heard me say that the document I had come for was going to take weeks, she looked concerned. Immediately, she put a call through to someone who worked at the office I had been to earlier and she arranged with the woman to fast track the process to just a few days. She even volunteered to pay any extra charges but the woman said there would be no need for that.
She took me in her car and dropped me at my next stop which was at an opposite end from where she was going initially.
On the journey, she told me how she is a silent follower of my posts and how much she is being blessed by them. We exchanged contacts and she even said that her home was open to me any time I was in town and needed to sleep over. She treated me really kindly and like a celebrity.
I am totally humbled by what happened that day. That’s just how I feel- humbled.
I appreciate God for the precious gift he has deposited inside me. What a great privilege to be seen worthy of such treasure.
I thank Jesus for the grace to put it to use. He called me and I am so grateful for that.
I thank the Holy Spirit my Teacher. His anointing upon the ministrations make all the difference. I am but just a vessel. I acknowledge the One at work in and through me.
I appreciate all those who have invested in me knowingly and unknowingly.
God bless you real good Mrs O.A. To extend that much kindness to someone you never met is adorable. It didn’t even feel like we hadn’t known each other prior that day.
I also want to use this opportunity to appreciate all those who read my writings. I appreciate the active and passive followers. I appreciate the feedbacks publicly and privately. God bless you all.
Before I end this, I want to encourage you to trade diligently with whatever talents God has invested in you.
Shine that little light of yours in that little corner of yours.
You’ll never know what access or doors those gifts will open for you.
