So I am sitting here right now, waiting for the bus to be filled up for me to go back to NYSC things and I’m thinking, why don’t I use this time for something profitable?
You know, satan is a very silly somebody oh. Yesterday of all days which was my call day, He tried all he could to steal my joy.
First, the hausa okada man who carried me didn’t know where he was going to, he carried me round town and I was worried of being late for my call. I was in the midst of thanking God and imagining this post in my head but stopped when the whole drama unfolded (Incident 1)
The taxi man too, carried us to a wrong venue for the call and I had to rush in to beat 10am for me not to miss what I have been waiting for the past 6years(Incident 2)
And thirdly, someone stole my small digital camera, the one I just bought and wanted to use for pictures…
As in, it was all so overwhelming and I was crying at the dinner table after the call but I realized that this isn’t about happenings of today, small camera or whatever, someone was trying to suck dry my happiness and of course I can’t let that happen!
I prayed and decided to be joyful!
Thank God for the Holy Spirit.
I snapped pictures and opened my teeth wide!
I don’t have pictures of myself and others though, they were in the camera that was stolen but I will try to overdose this post with pictures of me.
And I still chose to publish the testimony I wrote before all the silly happenings of yesterday.
So, I don’t think that I have ever revealed my age on this blog but giving this testimony today won’t be complete without my saying it all.
I am 22years old and a certified Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme court of Nigeria.
In the days leading to my call date, I was very lukewarm about it all, I was just numb. I almost didn’t think it was a big deal but while sitted on the bike(incident 1) on my way to meet my parents for our journey to the call venue, I couldn’t help but thank God.
I have never repeated a class, in fact, I skipped two classes in primary school because they said I was brilliant enough to pass model entrance and leave my mates behind.
I have never failed an exam.
I made all my O’level papers in one sitting.
I gained admission into the University immediately after secondary school.
I gained admission into law school immediately after the University.
I never had a carry over in school and in Law School, God still didn’t fail me.
God didn’t fail me. I wrote bar finals once and scaled through.
Through those years there were trials, illnesses, hard exams, nights of awoko, fear mixed with faith but God didn’t fail me.
Today, I am grateful, I am thankful… I realize that being this young and getting to this point academically isn’t by my power.
I am grateful to God, I am grateful to God.
I am grateful for His mercies, faithfulness, love and overwhelming favour and mercy.
I have nothing to do with this, it’s all God.
Not my brains, not any kind of extra intelligence and I just want to say I am grateful Lord.
You didn’t fail me and I know you never will.
Enjoy the pictures below, I will upload as many as I can, it was my day innit? 🙂
I don’t have a soft copy of the picture of my parents and I, I tried to snap the hard copy with my phone but it wasnt clear, manage the above selfie I snapped when we were on our way to ICC.
And did anyone notice that I’ve got no earings on my ears in the first photos I uploaded? They stole them too oh. I pulled them off so I could get into the hall and by the time I came back outside, they were gone.
Hah! Sharp people were in that call to bar event yesterday.
Uhm, I guess you guys would have realized by now that I didn’t finish writing this post at the park…
I’ve had a long day, I am feeling really sleepy and tired, battling with network too but Shebi I tried for the pictures I uploaded na?
All glory be to God.
A thankful me is about to hit dreamland. Lol.
Night night loves,
