1 Corinthian 2:9’Eye has not seen, or ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him’
And I do, truly. So, naturally, in 2016, I’m waiting to see His magic in me – Me, January 2016
I saw His Magic alright! See, God came through for me. I’m still struggling a lot in some areas, but I am thankful.
I got a job. In a field I had always wanted. Like it literally dropped in my laps. I wasn’t even searching o. I had plans to just be a baby girl and put work on hold, but God said no. Who starts a new job on a Friday that isn’t even the start of a new month? Me. See, my boss did not even see my CV before he offered me the job, to start the next day. True. When I was leaving he just said something like ‘I’ll take a look at your CV to confirm you’re not catfish (He didn’t really say catfish sha, but I like that word). I started. In two months I got a promotion. Note: Confirmation takes 6months. Magic no 2. It came 5 days to my birthday too. So I had something to celebrate. Now, when we have status meetings, and HODs speak, me too I speak. ME! Me, Motunrayo. Small, tiny, innocent, me! Me that people walk into the office and ask if I’m the new IT student! Wonder of wonders.
Jer 29:11 ‘For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, say the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.’
Remember that project I talked about here? I did it! And it was awesome! I’m not even joking. I had the best people on my team, and we did beautiful things together. It was a relief project by the way. We went to Ajegunle and distributed some relief materials on GoodFriday. You can view pictures here : I’m having another by the end of the year, on a much bigger scale. If you want to donate, please hit me up, God bless you.
I also joined a tourist group. I’ve started actually traveling. This, I am really excited about. I have met new people. Quite a handful of wonderful people that I have gradually come to love or respect or both. I am one who is quite wary of letting people in so it has been (is) a gradual process. I think I have actually begun to form friendships with real life, breathing females. That is a feat! Fingers crossed I don’t mess these up.
John 14:27 ‘Peace I leave with you, my pace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give it to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.’
For the rest of the year, I am going to declutter. All the pain and hurt I couldn’t let go of before, BYE. Everything in any area of my life that brought me sorrow, BYE. No more mind games. If I want to talk you, I will call you. If I miss you, I will reach out. If you don’t want, I will carry my kaya and go. World is not war fa.
Putting all my Energy into getting my mojo back. Spring in my steps, smile on my face, joy in my heart, peace in my mind, money in my pocket. Haha. You. People. Are. Not. Ready.
P.S: PreciousHeart, my best friend, is getting married. This is bittersweet for me because she promised me she was going to do away with men and we will get married and live happily ever after. Now she has gone and collected ring and the only thing she can think about is Bayo. Sigh. I love you, babe. God bless you both.
