I had kind of scheduled plans to start Youths Speak(the interview of different youth corpers today) but it’s been a full week and I felt like documenting all the waka waka I have done this week and lessons learnt for other youths who may have projects and stuff they want to do in mind.
I have met with my Zonal director on steps I need to take in order for me to send in my application letter for my project and it turns out, I have to visit the targeted schools and find out if they will accept my program.
So, I have been to about 7 Schools this week (I intend to speak at 5 because projects have to be rounded up by August)
It’s been waka after waka for me.
I am not a very patient person and if there’s anything that this week has taught me, it’s the fact that patience is key.
And if there’s anything else that I’ve learnt thus far, it’s the fact that prayer is key.
Don’t start up what God has put in your heart without praying about it to Him.
If you read our post on favour, then you should understand this.
I sincerely think that I’m favored and yes, I see God even in the small things.
I got free okada rides and a bit of slashed prices on some of the transport fare I needed to go to the Schools and if you are a corper with tight cash, you will understand why this is favour.lol.
I have also found out that being able to speak good english is key on project runs.
I spoke to a teacher who retired as a principal in 1990(I wasn’t born then), and he was like – “you seem to be a very intelligent girl, you speak fluently”.
And he gave me answers to my inquiries.
Hmm, good english opens doors, I tell you.
You get the ears of the principals and vice-principals and counselors(yes, I had to see all those persons).
I had no issues at all the Schools I went to(I’m favored remember?) except at one of the Schools where I had to wait and wait and wait to speak to the principal.
And here’s where the real lesson is at.
As I waited, I thought to myself, I would sure love to be in my house right now, reading a book and lying down to rest my head rather than sitting on this strong chair and stressed out of my mind.
Remember I said that patience isn’t my best suit? Yes, it’s a fruit of the Spirit and mhen, I gotta learn…
Well, so, those thoughts were rolling in my mind. I almost left the School but I also started thinking about how many persons take the easy way out when they want to fulfil their purpose in life.
It gets too hard and they are out.
Yep, they say, count me out if it’s too stressful please.
I’d rather go to my PPA, sleep afterwards and pass out jejeje.
Well, I can’t take the easy way out, just as we cannot take the easy way out.
Can you imagine how many lives need the words and light that God has placed in you?
Can you think about the souls that need the manifestation of the you in you?
A lot of us youths have been sleeping for too long. It’s about time we wake up.
Honestly, I am at a PPA where if I want to just come in, sign and leave, no wahala.
But I can’t just do that for this year. The dreams that I have have to be a reality.
I know my dreams, but I don’t know yours.
For some of us, it’s as simple as starting a blog(yay Vicky!)
Or its as big as the sky… whatever it is, we can’t take the easy way out.
This 2015, determine to birth those dreams.
Don’t let them lay down dormant.
Don’t sleep on your dreams and in the process, sleep on another’s opportunity to see the light through you.
It’s time for us to be AWAKENED!
AWAKE oh youths and do what God has called you to do.
You don’t know it yet?
Then awake oh youth and find your purpose.
Set some time to pray and ask God what He wants you to do on earth(He created you remember?)
Some of us have an inkling of what we should be doing already… So be AWAKENED and walk in the light of what you know.
As you take steps on the little that God has shown you, He keeps showing you more steps on what to do.
It is my desire that we find our purpose, fill our niche and manifest our lights this year.
Now, unto my looking for sponsors.
I have to submit the application letter at least before February.
#I pray for favor.
Till my next memoir on my personal project runs,
P.S-There may not be Saturday’s love letter this week.
I’ll be going for NCCF(Nigerian christian corpers conference) and I may not be able to update the blog.
Either ways, for those who missed the last love letter, on lessons from when I almost dated an engaged man, read here.
And read all the love letters too while you are at it 🙂
And I know that we’ve got new readers here…
Yay! You are all welcome 🙂
