My 27th Birthday + 7 Questions people always ask me
It's my birthday today and I am totally grateful to God for the gift of life. He has been my rock, shield, refuge and strength. Words fail me in trying to describe his love for. He is simply amazing. This year, my birthday post is about the questions people ask me. People ask me lots of questions but 7 out of the most asked are the ones I have highlighted here. Please feel free to ask yours at the end of the post in the comment section, I promise to answer them all.
1. When are you getting married?
think this is the question I have been asked the most in the last 2-3
years. Everyone that has come to know me, knows how much I am in love
with my fiance - Ms. Blessing Agbaje. Hence, they want to know when we'd
be tying the knots. Assuredly, your answer is very soon; in fact,
sooner than you perhaps imagined. Sincerely, I can't wait to get married
to the amazing woman of virtue God has given me. I can't wait to
completely cleave to her. She is the best thing God has given me since
Jesus Christ and I will always be grateful. Talk about a woman of
understanding, noble character, patience, excelling virtue and teachable
spirit. Sincerely, I believe I'm the most favoured man on earth to have
her as a gift from God.
2. How come you repeated classes twice and started your PhD at 23?
Sincerely, the answer to that is "I DON'T KNOW". But I KNOW something; it is not magic. God orchestrated it, guided it and saw it through. One of my mentors do say, "when you cannot explain it, there is a God-factor in it". My advice is, if you want something similar to happen in your life or in the life of anyone you know; stay close to God. Let Him be your only hope. When He is your only hope, you can never be ashamed. It goes to show, the downfall of a man is not the end of his life. The fact that you fail does not make you the tail! Don't give up even when it seems you can't get up!
3. Why are you always Happy?
The answer to this one, I know. The bible says, "the path of the just is as the shining light, that shines more and more unto the perfect day" [Prov 4:8]. Not only does his path shines, his countenance shines too because he reflects the glory of the Lord. I am always happy because there is a seed of joy on my inside. There is no way to conceal it. No matter how hard I try. Even when I am sick, its hard to have a harsh or frowned face. Joy beams from my within always because I serve a God of hope.
4. Where do you get your posts from?
This question has come to me from a lot of people including my fiance. lol. My post comes from my desire to fulfill purpose; which is to make people believe in themselves that they can achieve anything they set their minds on to achieve. I always feel like screaming it loud into people's ears, "DO NOT QUIT" so I basically fashion out my message in that direction. Doing all I can to inspire, motivate and encourage everyone on their way to fulfillment. My first destination for inspiration is my Bible. All my posts are embedded in the revelations I get from God; I supplement them with insights from other authors (books, blogs and things I listen to). Moreover, I watch out for my day-to-day life for anything that could be of insight to the message of hope I've been sent to preach.
5. Your parents must be very rich?
I think I have gotten this question alot in the last 3-4years. The reason being that I've only had one scholarship since I've been studying that covers my academic tuition fees. Other scholarships hardly go in that direction safe the most recent one in the final year of my research. So people wonder where my parents get all he money to train me thus far. Sincerely, my parents are rich in Christ Jesus! All their deposits to God's kingdom never fails to pay off. That's where my school fees get paid. There has never been a time I got out of school because my fees could not be paid. No matter how late, God always settled the fees. He is still doing so, even for my younger ones. He is a God of hope.
6. How is life in New Zealand?
Life in New Zealand is awesome when you have a family that loves you genuinely. In New Zealand, I have met great people who have taken me as their own - Son, Brother, Uncle, Sibling (name it). In fact, sometimes I have to force myself to miss my very own nuclear family. Special mention to my Pastor's family - Pastor David Adelowo of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Victory House, Auckland. Could not have been more blessed to have you in my life. God bless you.
7. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
When people ask me this question, I feel they are trying to put me in a box. While I do not have issues providing an answer, I always have it at the back of my mind that its a difficult thing fathoming what God has in store for me because He has deposited too much into me for me to completely imagine what He would do through me. One of my goals to publish nothing less than 30 books in my life time; most of which will also be published in various languages of the world. People must hear the message God has put on my lips; no matter where they come from; the language they speak or the situation of their countries. So in five years time, I should have published some of those books; most likely be teaching at a university; married to my sweetheart in blessed matrimony.
Now, if you have any questions for me, please feel free to leave them in the comment section. For every post I do henceforth, I will take one question each and answer them at the end. God bless you and thank you for celebrating my birthday with me. Keep on keeping on!
