Post-Convocation + Etisalat 2015 Flash Fiction
Bonjour mes amies. . . Yea! It’s a Frenchman style this morning. . . I’m sure y’all have been awesomely great. . . I missed y’all, being here and writing altogether.
So last week, I couldn’t do more than a post because I travelled! Yea. . . I bagged my B. A. Degree in English Language last week Thursday from the prestigious Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State. . . I left on Tuesday, Glo network in the area where I stayed was awful and I just got back yesterday evening. It wasn’t easy but God was there each step of the way of the academic journey. . . So yes, I’m officially a Graduate and an Alumnus of one the best Universities in Nigeria and Africa *hehehehehe Great Ife! we too like priding*
I wish I could say more right now on this other than sharing my joy, achievement and victory with you – my amazing readers but I will when the time is right and very appropriate but God was faithful throughout this particular phase of my life and I’m grateful that after this ride, I have come to appreciate myself better, give credits to the God in me, myself and the purpose in me!. . . Our lives isn’t situational that we end up being a circumstance of coincidences but God is ever faithful, ever sure, ever prompt, ever precise and He knows what He is doing and plans to achieve with your life.
I am not a mistake and same applies to you! God entrusts His abilities and deposits in our lives cos He finds us capable to deliver and worthy enough to be His mouthpiece. . . You are God’s original plan and so does everything that has to do with you! – your experiences, challenges, breakthroughs, they are all part of the plan.
Be grateful for the rivers that you have crossed cos there are still many more to! And if He brings you to it, He’d take you through it!
