A DAY WORTH HONORING

I apologize for my long absence. I am busy studying for the GMAT. Yes, I am actually taking it this time...LOL. In a couple of weeks actually. Pray for me. I'm also due to hear about the MBA Prep prgram on the 2nd of February. Thanks for asking LOASCM. I appreciate it. I'll let you know.

I came out of hibernation today because today is a significant day in my life. I hate to speak in code or parables or whatever but some things I have to keep for myself, no? LOL. A month ago today, a chain of events was put in motion that reminded me of a lot of things I had forgotten about God and life. I have been reminded that God don't play. When He says He'll do something, God does it......not in your own time but when it is the right time. I have been reminded that His purpose for my life is so much bigger than I ever dreamed. I have been reminded that He answers those "why me?" questions with a manifestation in the best way possible. I have been reminded that despite/in spite of my shaky walk with Him, He loves me unconditionally.

In life, I have been reminded not to ever be afraid to dream and to ask - nothing is too out of reach. I have been reminded that giving your all does pay off, in unimaginable dividends. I have been reminded that putting your best self out there only attracts the best kind of people. I have been reminded to always remain hopeful. Finally, I have been reminded to feel the fear and do it anyway.

Today is a day worth honoring in my life because a month ago today, God honored me in one of the best possible ways. Ayo mi tun de.
