During the Just Us Girls 2016 conference “BeYouTiFul”, Pastor Jerry Eze explained that Beauty comes from the Glory of God. . . And that just like at the end of Nollywood movies, I will say “To God Be The Glory!”
The word I picked from my promise slip was Amos 9:13-15 (MSG); “Everything will be happening at once – and everywhere you look, blessings! Blessing like wine pouring off the mountains and hills, I’ll make everything right again for my people Israel.” (Efughi)
Before the conference, I was praying and believing that I would be posted to Lagos for service- I could not imagine missing service at DCC nor WWW 2017.
God had other plans for me. Despite the fact that I could not find Lagos while I filled the NYSC online form, I kept believing for my Miracle- After all, It’s My Turn!
My heart broke when I saw Katsina.
Katsina??? Is that even a state?? Do they have humans living there? Father why???
“The word you picked was just a paper, how can God promise you Blessings and He’s taking you to the North?” the devil mocked.
Unexpectedly, my elder brother came visiting. While he was encouraging me to go, I heard; “Peace, I see the bigger picture, just trust me”.
My Blessings started pouring in when I stopped crying and decided to go. Miraculously, finance poured in. And so I embarked on the journey of discovery; one that lasted for 26hours -my butt pleading for mercy, my mind searching scriptures, my heart whispering prayers.
In Camp I joined the NYSC Band. Learning the routine was easier than I had expected. Within days I became a ‘pro’ and taught others the routine.
I remember clearly the day I was asked where I wanted my PPA to be. “Take your time to decide” I was told. A few days later, my reply was accomplished.
I was the only Corp member posted to my Place of Primary Assignment. I received 9,000 Naira per month. My students were beautiful and the proprietor was from my village. Even in a strange land, God’s best was mine.
I thought God had done so much, yet He did much more.
I laughed the day we were threatened; they promised to deal with us because we were not Hausa, nor muslim. Then there was the October 1st ultimatum -Corp members started packing their bags, non indigenes started disappearing. Calls were made and God sent us SSS and the Army to be our Bodyguards! All the world’s resources belongs to HIM!
The day I had an accident started normal -I used to think Lagos drivers were rough till I got to Katsina and met recklessness. We were on our way to church. Without warning, we Landed on the floor. The bike scattered in different directions and yet all we had were bruises on us. When I stood up, under my breath I muttered; Satan you are a liar, I came here alive and I will leave Alive. Nothing shall be Missing!!!!
Many were stabbed and slaughtered. But I wasn’t.
I thought katsina would be dreadful, but it was wonderful.
He did see the bigger picture.
In Katsina I learned how to eat, sleep, and wake with the word. Messages from church were my constant companion. I followed Christ for myself, and I experienced God like never before. Each day, just as David, He directed me to victories. And He said, This is just the beginning Peace, I’m ready to take you places. He took me away to refine me, so He could see Himself through me.
It was an awesome journey, one I would joyfully agree to experience again!!!
After all was said and done, I could, and can say. . . TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
