TRAMPLING ON YOUR BLESSING?

Voila!! Yeebo!!

I once heard that when you confess something you begin to believe it. Now l know what they didn't add, that after you believe it you beigin to live it. That my dear is what my life was until a few days ago.

I have been sourcing for funds to go to school . My first assignment is actually due this month but l will hand it over in a three weeks time. But that is not the twist.

You see for a long time l never looked at what l had in my hands. That is my income. I kept thinking it is too little to pay for school. I wanted to eat this school elephant all at once. Well, this week l actually got an idea how l could eat this elephant piece by piece without chocking.

Surprise surprise l can actually pay for my MA. Shock on me. I have learned that when you complain you actually don't see the blessing. It becomes all mixed up so that your blessing is trampled upon.

Did l tell you l love life? And that l love the way God just puts stuff in our way and knocks us to our senses to see His blessings? My blessing was all the while right in front of me and yet l could not see it. Irony. I love life.

Yeah, sometimes we get blessings in disguise. Sometimes, they are right there, but coz we just donn take as much time to look as we take to ask and complain we miss(trample as u said..) out on them!
