It’s been a while that I did a ‘Thursday Inspiration’ post. I have a lot of things that I want to write about but time is now becoming a luxury. I had to make a conscious effort this week to make sure I put up a post on this blog everyday, thanks to my fans who follow this blog daily. I cannot afford to disappoint you 🙂
My Thursday Inspiration is a song that is really dear to my heart. It is called ‘You are the reason’. I first heard this song when a super-talented man of God came to minister in my church while I was in Ibadan. As he sang the song, I felt as if I was the one who wrote the lyrics. The song is really simple but it is quite deep. The summary of the journey of my life so far is that I’m still standing because of God. Sometimes I look at myself and wonder how I got here; how did I reach this level? There was a point in my life when I had completely lost hope. I didn’t see a bright future for myself. I was confused and alone. There were times I felt like I wouldn’t make it. There were also times when I couldn’t take the pain anymore. I just wanted it all to end. There were times I had to put up a strong face when all I wanted to do was break down and cry. And there were also times that I broke down in tears but I had no one to comfort me.
It was during those times that God showed up. He gave me strength. He assured me that He would never leave or forsake me. It was because of Him that I was able to smile again. I had hope in my heart once more. He gave me a renewed hope. I was determined to make it. Giving up was not going to be an option. God brought back the light into my life. So if you’re wondering how I have been able to achieve all that I have achieved so far, know that it is all because of God. He is the reason that I can write this post with so much joy in my heart. He is the reason that I have a story to share with you today. In Him I have my happy ending.
Wow, see me thinking I will do a quick 2-minute post and I’ve written an epistle already. What can I say? I just love to write :-). I pray this song blesses you as much as it has blessed me. It is good to give God all the glory He deserves. Acknowledge Him for all that He has done for you. Thank Him for those baby steps. Yes they may seem little but when you thank God for them, He will cause you to take bigger steps. God is everything to me. I want you to make Him your everything too. Life with Him is so much sweeter.
Ok I have preached enough. Enjoy ‘You are the reason’ by Mairo Ese.
