When you are born into a country where only your pastor and religious leaders are the one telling you that the only connection you need to make it in life is God while prevailing circumstances is pointing to the fact that aside the heavenly God you need another God, this time (the earthly God) to receive heavenly revelation and earthly motivation in which most cases is (brown envelope) in other to help you, your faith in what your religion leaders preach on the altar on Sunday will be shaken. Don’t feel bad about that and don’t make anybody make you feel that you are faithless and therefore cannot move your mountains rather look on the bright side of it and hope for a great show of the supremacy of God when he finally prevail upon your case.
While you are battling with your faith and holding unto Christ who will always prevail in a big way and make it seems as if he likes his children being mocked to the point of giving up before uplifting them above their enemies, you keep hearing testimonies from people of less faith and even non believers who at different stages have undergone breakthrough with help of their God father(earthly in this case), some even enter the church to praise him for paying #500,000 naira to someone and getting a job as a result and then hiding under the umbrella of testimony with the justification that if God was not in support, his bribe wouldn’t have earn him the job, as if our God is a promoter of corruption or uses it as a tool to grant some of his children testimonies and breakthrough.
While you are trying to understand why God didn’t deem it fit to distribute evenly the gift of wealth or to immediately bless you who have battled with two square meals as if there were no other person in worst scenario than you and graduated with plenty responsibilities and expectations written down on your B.sc/HND certificate. You still have your parents who psychologically shrink your very being with success stories of their friends and neighbor who have either bought a car for their parents, built a house, gotten married, or is sponsoring his or her siblings abroad as if it was your inadequacy or deficiency that has left you unemployed or as though they knew the source of their friend/neighbors child’s wealth. Talking of source of wealth; these days no body cares how it comes, they just want to see you successful.
While you are trying to understand why your parents are expecting much from you as if it was you that denied them the privilege of snatching the silver spoon from their creator or it was you that urge them to win the battle against the other million sperm cells that might be fortunate to have come into the world and secured for you a golden spoon for their grandchildren and generation yet unborn as Atiku Abubakar and the host of others have done. You have the society on the other hand telling you that you are better of death than alive.
While your pastor is consoling you with the story of a brother in church whom after youth service took him twenty years to get a job, another brother who is yet to complete his NYSC is sharing his testimony of a 200,000 naira monthly salary job he just secured to resume immediately after discharge and this is the point where you find it difficult to affirm your faith and wonder if the two fellow served the same God, and while he allowed one to wallow in misery for twenty years and the other in opposite situation but come on, who are you to question God, after all he watched Cain murdered his brother Abel just for him to ask him (Cain) where is your brother Abel. His ways are different from the ways of mortal being.
While you are trying to settle for the stark reality that God’s time is yet to come, don’t make the erroneous mistake of going into any relationship with the opposite sex if you are a guy (in my opinion) because sooner than later she will add to your misery and desperation either by eloping with that guy who has just arrived his destination or telling you how God has revealed to her that you guys were not meant for each other just to invite you to her wedding few months after(plan be has been on the line) your misery didn’t just open your eyes to see.
They tell you not all girls are the-same, it’s the fact but since the probability of finding those that are not the-same in their word is the-same as finding the probability that a coca-cola picked at random from a crate with twenty three poisonous bottles will be the good one. I advice you don’t add to your misery frustration but wait till you get there, after all there population is more than yours and you can always find one having in mind that the beautiful ones are not yet born.
While you are trying to understand why ladies prefer the “ready-made guys” (new word in women’s vocabulary for describing guys with good job and pay), you still have our legislature trying to steal your peace and freedom of expression in the social media where your misery always lead you to pour out your unending-in-sight frustration on any government official who is unfortunate to be mention in the news for diverting public funds as if you are not guilty of diversion at any point in your life. At least if for once in your life you were guilty of diversion, then the only difference between you and them (the leaders) is OPPORTUNITY.
