Counting God's Faithfulness in My Life by Olatuja Oloyede

My Testimony of God's Faithfulness in 2017
© Olatuja Oloyede

This year like no other year in my life has been a year of testimony to God's faithful.

I graduated in January with a good grade (there was no course I had less than C from 100l to 400)

I travelled to Lagos to work. The same week I got there I got a job which I was among the highest paid staff although not handsomely paid. I got another job after some months where I was highly favoured by my employer. Her kindness was inspired by a force which could only be God. I was not the highest ranked staff there but I was the highest paid. Is that not God...?

My uncle and aunty with whom I stayed throughout in Lagos were source of tremendous blessings. I was treated like a king with utmost care which sometimes make me wonder if I deserve such attention.

O... I met too many people this year. Some from the places I worked, some from our church in Festac, some from the Street, some in Benue State, some even foreigners on social media. I keep getting messages even till yesterday how much some persons I've bounded with missed me.

Some lives have been a source of spiritual motivation to me. I've been among God's children a very troublesome breed but these ones consciously or unconsciously have motivated me to stay close to my savour.

I've seen God faithfulness at work everywhere. I saw the supernatural workings of God over lives. These though I will not mention in details have confirmed to me more than ever before that my God answers prayers. Yesterday, I gave a friend a book to read only to come back meeting him on his knees pleading for grace and asking for forgiveness of sins for about 2 hours or more in tears. Our God is indeed faithful.

Journey mercies everywhere. Don't say what am I looking for...I visited several States within this country. I was on 11 hours journey this month.

I got posted to Benue for NYSC where I made several good friends from many tribes. Judith, Obakam, Daniel, Segun, Emmanuel, Aromath, the guys from Winner's family house and others.

What more can I say? I've enjoyed sound health, answered prayers and open heaven. God I'm grateful.

Creative Arena was born this year where I've met many like minds and heart blowing poets. Hall of Truth has brought me closer to certain comrades in the faith and Creative Arena has brought like minded people in line with my passion.

And all this while, I've been talking about myself. How about what God has done for my family and friends. The seas they've crossed, the yokes that were broken, the lands that were taken, and the grace that abound.

I hope we can find a thousand reason to thank the Almighty as we advance into the new year. Happy New Year in advance.
