My dear dear enemy,
As this year 2013 began, I thought of you briefly and decided to write you this letter. You see it is imperative that I write you now because this year I will be too busy to give you much thought.
I honestly didn’t think you existed but I’ve learned that my Lord Jesus is the Omniscient- The All-wise God. He hinted me of your existence and I know it is impossible for Him to lie so even if I don’t know you I believe you are there. He said to love my enemies (luke 6:27). Therefore even though I don’t know you. I know you exist and I’m supposed to love you.
However do not think that I am deceived. I know that since you are human, you are not the real enemy for I wrestle not against flesh and blood but since you still fall into the enemy category somehow, this letter is for you.
First of all let me thank you for being there and for helping me get more enemies like you. I must commend your commitment to your assignment because it has made the table God sets for me before you constantly bigger. I mean if you weren’t many (you are many aren’t you?) My table wouldn’t be very big and how else would the scriptures be fulfilled in my life? After all it is set in the presence of my enemies 😉
I also want to encourage you. As we say in Ibo to “jide obi gi aka” or in bible english “be very strong and courageous”. Yes you will need lots of courage as this will be a very frustrating year for you. You see, God’s word to us at DCC is that in 2013… I WILL TESTIFY! Everyday will bring a new testimony. I can only imagine how that will make you feel.
God told me this year will be MY year of Intense and continuous thanksgiving. Oh! Dear enemy, how will you cope? I can already feel your pain every time I say thank you to YAHWEH for another blessing 😀 and there will be too many times like that this 2013.
Also it would be advisable for you to be very creative this year as there will be fewer things that you will find as mocking points. You see, unfortunately for you dear enemy, everything that has been a prayer point in the past, this year will be a testimony point. For Jehovah, the glory and the lifter of my head is very busy this year on my matter. I almost feel bad for you. What will you use to beef me now? Oh you poor thing 😦 ;D 😀 😀
While we’re at it. I also want to take the time to explain to you how frustrating 2013 WILL be for you. It will be a hard year for you because I will be too busy to respond to your foolishness, gossip, back-biting or manipulation and when I do find the time out of my miracle-filled year, it will be to show you love. It will be confusing for you but then if you were smart you wouldn’t be my enemy now would you? 😉
There are some things you will find frustrating about me this year and you will often find yourself saying “what is it sef? Is she the only one in this world? Why is God blessing her like this?” I would have liked to say “I’m sorry you feel that way” but truth be told, I’m not. I’m expecting that you will be upset a lot of times this year because my life will be better, it will inspire more people. My marriage will be happier and I will glorify God with it. My blogging will be more frequent and my say-it-as-it-is approach to life and the Word will not cease. You will be more infuriated when you see how many souls will get saved this year through our ministry. It will be a bad year for you but what can I do about it? Absolutely nothing!
Interestingly at the end of the year one of two things will happen either I will testify like in psalm 126 that “the Lord has done great things for me and I am glad or YOU will testify on my behalf that the Lord has done great things for me. Trust me honey, either way there will be a testifying.
So, since this is the last time we’ll have this conversation this year, let me say to you my dear enemy or enemies (I hope) *who no like big table? 😀 *, fasten your seat belt and get ready for the time of our lives in 2013 ‘cos its gonna be a great year for me and all the wonderful people connected to me 🙂
DISCLAIMER: this is not directed at any persons living or dead (:D isn’t that how it’s said in the movies?)
But seriously I was just meditating on that scripture in Psalm 23 (beautiful psalm by the way) “Thou prepareth a table before me in the presence of my enemies” and it got me thinking about how “my enemies” must be feeling and I came up with this letter. Its just a little harmless fun. Nothing serious 🙂
