Hi there…I hope you had a great weekend. So my friend Aanu Odedere moved to lagos sometimes ago and I told her I would be expecting articles from her lagos experiences. So here is her first. I did enjoy…and I hope you will too.
It was a normal day, work would make me pass through Agege and I eagerly was expecting to buy the popular Agege bread. Funny but true? Yes! and I was excited. I picked my bag and headed straight to my destination.
Pronto! …I am at Fagba area but not the exact location. I quickly set out to find the exact point to meet my colleague and the other few people I have never met before. I brought out my tab, turned my GPS on to know my exact position and where to turn. Five minutes afterwards, I was still trying to get my location, thanks to MTN, my GPS was just not coming up, by now I had begin to sweat and was pacing restlessly with no particular direction in mind.
After 10 minutes I decided to just walk down the road and try to find any familiar street, which I had seen initially on Google map. Yes! Finally I found one and after walking for a while I decided to restart my device, maybe the GPS would come up and there it was again blinking. I tried calling my colleague but he wasn’t picking up.
By now I was feeling frustrated, tired and sorry for myself.”Girl you are OYO (On Your Own)” I thought.
Then I prayed silently “God pls have mercy on me today”. I continued my journey in no definite direction, looking out for sign posts and asking the people I met who seem ready to help for directions, and they all gave different responses( very typical).
So I continued my journey using the imaginations of the saved route on my Google map, as I walked I kept praying, God please help me. After walking for a while, I tried turning on my Gps again, and there it was, stable!
Hmmm…you needed to see the relief on my face. After which I turned on one of my applications called the Location finder, and it was showing a green colour (which meant I was in the right place.)
It was then I decided to call my colleague again, and he picked up this time, only to inform me he was on admission in the hospital. Ooops! So I was supposed to be waiting for this guy.
Then I realized that there is nothing you cannot pray about. When your trusted companions disappoint you, God would not and His network is never down; He would guide you through.
God is interested in all areas of our loves as much as we permit Him and trust me YOU CAN PRAY ABOUT EVERYTHING.
