Seated on my bed, and my mind went through the day. How gracious it is to hand over each day into the hands of God.
‘Ugo, wake me in an hours time’ was the last statement i made yesterday night, only to wake up around 5 this morning with the fear that i have nothing in my head for the psychology test i was going to have later in the day. With all these running through my head, my roommate, Ugo, reminded me of the jogging which was scheduled for 5:30…remembering this all together with the test i have not read for, i became very scared and all i could think of was test! test!! test!!!.
I got up from my bed, knelt down and committed my day in God’s hand cos i had the feeling that it was going to be a stressful one…i prayed and told Him to help me with the day (even if i have not done this for days). I went for the jogging, came back to my room around 7:30am of which i was to be in class by 8am. I had the fastest bath i ever imagined, within 30 minutes i was in class already. Immediately i stepped into the class, the doors were shut. All i could say was ‘thank you God’(the first round of my prayer was answered) .
All my lectures ended 12 noon so i had the opportunity to read for the test which was to take hold 5pm. I had to force myself to read all i haven’t read( that was my punishment for sleeping when i was meant to read). When it was 4:30, i left for the lecture room where i was to have the test, the test started at exactly 5pm, i could not believe my eyes when saw multiple-choice questions, infact i was the happiest on earth, i went through the questions, they were just as too easy than i could imagine…i started and after 30minutes i was through and i submitted my script to the lecturer with a big smile on my face.
On my way back to the hostel with my friends, i remembered how for the first time in weeks, i knelt down to pray to God to help me with my day and how He made everything work out for my good. How even later in the day when i was thinking of what to eat, favor came my way.
It is a great and nice thing to commit your day and even life as a whole the into the hands of the one that created you, He watched you sleep like a baby and fought all the battles for you while you were fast asleep, inviting Him into your day shouldn’t be too difficult. He longs to hear you call His name everyday just the way you greet your mother, father,wife, friends and colleagues. He loves to hear you say ‘Good morning Jesus’ when you wake up, He longs to hear you talk to Him like a best companion.
He doesn’t want too much of your time, just 20 minutes out of your 24hrs is enough, speak to Him like a brother, a friend, a companion and trust me He will direct you through out the day and even tell you what to do in all situations.You will just see things work out your own way.
