My Testimonies (4)

Some gifts are not necessarily wrapped, such has been mine, this year.


Sometimes we wait for gifts wrapped in paper and sheets before we call them one. Albeit, there are parcels too big to be contained in wrappers.

Among my encounters, this year have been people whom the Lord strategically placed in my life to help me cross every path I come across. Sometimes, these were decisions I needed to make, or perhaps some things I needed to break free from or leave behind. Traditions, fears, complacency and all that the devil had beautifully painted as the ‘norm’–God gave me groundbreaking freedoms this year. Hence, I have learned to embrace the new and open my heart and self to a lot more than I would ordinarily not.

God is simply amazing, that is all I can say in summary, today, as I write to you.

You too do not have to wait for gifts wrapped in parcels. Some gifts are seemingly not as much as their true worth in appearance but are gems.

Come on, reflect. Look beyond the wrappers and tell me if you never got amazing gifts too this year.
