FROM OUR LIPS TO GOD’S EARS ONLY!

I am thankful and overwhelmed today because I have had the most readers from these countries: Ghana, United States, Canada, South Africa, United Kingdom, Spain and Nigeria.

To all my readers across the world,you are the reason I grab my phone to type my thoughts on this blog even when I have lost interest in everything. Being as integral part of this journey in my blogging experience, I love that you have still stuck with me.

If you missed the first part of this story, please have a good read before enjoying this one. Here you goπŸ–•

My prayer πŸ’œ

After resigning, in this critical period (Covid-19), I mean who is still hiring now? The system itself in the country is whack! This is what happened after kissing my Job good-bye!

My family could sense my frustration and uneasiness. After some few days, I regained strength and started a part-time work, took some online courses, did some volunteering work, attended useful programs, I kept applying to other governmental sectors once I got to know there is a vacancy; gave time to my novels and I didn’t forget to keep hope alive. Through this situation, I had some opportunities and I met some new people. It was worth it.

But of course, I didn’t forget the one thing I was praying for: my pending appointment letter. I mostly called to follow-up on it and the feedback from the office wasn’t very encouraging.

There were days, I didn’t feel like telling God anything and I just wanted to be left alone in my room. A friend who has always been with me throughout this painful moment of my life reminded me of the Parable of the wicked Judge and the persistent Widow. I took time to reflect on the story and prayed.

It’s normal to lose hope, cry and be perturbed. It is normal to go through the day without feeling hungry if you were in my situation. The adventure took me by surprise and it hit me so hard! However, I grew stronger.

I told God to let his favor be with me.

I told him about my situation even though he knew it.

I told God my frustrations and how impatient I was.

I told him I wanted to tell this testimony and to inspire others with my story.

I told him I was tired and I didn’t have the strength to continue. He should just grant me a miracle!

All my prayers and thanks turned into this hymn. I actually sung when I received a call that early morning.

πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―

You are my strength when I am weak
You are the treasure that I seek
You are my all in all
Seeking You as a precious jewel
Lord to give up I’d be a fool
You are my all in all

Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name

Taking my sin my cross my shame
Rising again I bless your name
You are my all in all
When I fall down you pick me up
When I am dry You fill my cup
You are my all in all

Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name

Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name

Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name
Jesus Lamb of God worthy is Your name
Worthy is Your name
Worthy is Your name

I remembered what my mentor at Accra Academy Campus told me when I went there to ask for help. She prayed with me in the office, sung and assured me:

“Listen, you are loved. Man doesn’t have your back in this situation. This is just a test of faith! You will get a place even in this critical period

I went back there and took what belonged to me😩. I was beamed with smiles and prayed! I Thanked God for not giving up on me.

I actually came back home and wept. My mum couldn’t hold back her tears. You know days ago, I was always scrolling through my contacts, asking myself:

“Who does this person know?”

“Can he or she be of help to me?”

Sometimes, my calls were missed, they never called back, other times, the received calls turned into: “Linda, may I call back? I’m kind of busy now” they weren’t going to call back either. I became a nuisance to people. I gave up calling or texting. I remembered what the scripture said in Jeremiah 29( For I know the plans I have for you….) You know when humans forget about us, when the going gets tough. I decided not to call again. To relax and let God’s will be done in this situation!

I’m a living testimony. Seriously this is my testimony! God didn’t forget about my situation. He heard my prayers. He never fails us.

I finally got a better place. This particular one got me stunned. This is what I deserve!!

Grateful to all who helped me during this difficult time: Mummy, Aunty C, Aunty Mercy, B.B Thompson, Elixagyare, Seyram, Harrison (State House), Lucy, Aunty Patricia and Aunty Pearl πŸ’•. And to you who knew of my story and prayed for God’s intervention, I am grateful. Bless you.

They spoke against God, saying, ‘Can God spread a table in the desert? When he struck the rock, water gushed out, and streams flowed abundantly. But can he also give us food? Can he supply meat for his people?Psalm 78:19-20

    1. Thanks for helping me out every step of the way. You have been a true friend. May you be called blessed among your peers! May people see you and say, “He is indeed a lifesaver” May you never lack in whatever you set your mind and heart to do! May your dreams be fulfilled and may God see you through all your plans. Where ever you go my friend, may you share testimonies; may they overflow- your blessings.

      People won’t understand this. But I am the only one who knows what and how far we have come. You have shown me unconditional love and I appreciate you!

      God richly bless you my dear friend. πŸ’•πŸ˜Š
