Hey hey hey
I remember the very first night I got into Ghana with my mum.
I remember the food we ate when we got to my friend’s room (a friend who had been schooling here before me).
I remember the next day, how we went to look for hostel for me.
I remember how they said they couldn’t let me in because I was Nigerian and will be notorious.
I remember how my mum assured them that I’m a ‘different Nigerian’. Lol.
I remember connecting with two other Nigerians in that same hostel. One became my closest friend who I lived with for my 4 years.
I remember I got saved months later in the very room I slept that first night with my mum.
I don’t remember much about level 200.
But I remember that when we moved into our apartment, I couldn’t afford a bed.
I remember sleeping on the floor for like a semester. Thank God for the big blanket I got in Secondary School! I later got a bed.
I remember level 300 was the hardest and it felt like I’ll be unable to complete my studies.
I remember crying a lot. A lot.
I remember the beginning of final year and now it is over. What a wow!
I remember Matthew 6:33 that says But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Matthew 6:33-34 ESV
I know now that I serve a faithful God as I reflect on the last few years. Like, I know Him in a different way now.
It’s like a dream.
Let me tell you, God is faithful. In fact, at the end, education is great but all is vanity.
Call me strange but the first thing I thought of as I finished my last paper yesterday was: so, this is it? (Gbo gbo e na re?) Lol. Ask a Yoruba person what that means.
But I am grateful, like, in a way that my heart wants to burst.
I remember a lot of things, but I mostly remember that I am grateful for my family.
I remember that my Papa God, oh, He is faithful!
He is NOT a man that lies, doesn’t start a thing He can’t finish.
He kept His promise to me, He will keep His promise to you.
Believe, and someday, it will be like a dream.
Love and light,
