A letter to you

Whoosh! It’s almost bedtime, and I desire to write to you before I sleep, as this memory still stays fresh within me. How have you been all this while? It’s been a long time since I last heard from you.

There are lots of things to learn from all that happens around us. A simple bark from a dog might be a big lesson to some and a noise to others. Creation always have unique ways to pass messages across to us. Thanks to God, who fashioned beauty in them.

This time around, it was an experience I heard over a week ago while the electricity in my hostel had some faults. As usual, once the electricity is affected, the supply of water also gets affected.

We had pumped water very early on a Monday morning and had all gone out of the hostel for our respective activities. Undoubtedly not everyone would have left the hostel that day. While I returned from school and got to my hostel, I heard from one of the occupants that a transformer supplying electricity to our hostel and other houses around had developed a fault.

Hmmm! We sure would have assumed it will be repaired in no time, considering the faults involved.

Holy Spirit ✨ 🤭 He helps a lot in areas beyond what we imagine or think. So, He told me to fetch water, and I did.

I had only a single bucket with me, so I fetched into it. While I left for my room, I also took some of my roomies’ buckets which we shared and fetched into them.

To cut the story short. A day after, the filled tank was already empty as some persons had also washed their clothes and done other things. For about four days, there was no blink of light in the hostel as the electricity was affected. In one way or the other, we couldn’t pump water anymore.

For days most people were stranded and needed water to do a lot of things. It was a borehole, so fetching wasn’t an option. To get water from nearby was a stressful thing to do.

Thank God I had fetched water into buckets able to sustain me for the time there was no water available.

The tank was full as at the time there was still water. Little by little, the water reduced. Although some persons fetched a bucket of water, it wasn’t enough to sustain them for about four to five days.

If they had known, I’m sure their buckets would have been filled up.

There comes a time when opportunities might be flying about in large numbers. You never can tell what happens next. Irrespective of the abundance available, your capacity goes a long way to sustain you in your time of need. There’s a lot to say, but I will leave you with these wonderful words.

2 Kings 4:3

…Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few.

. I look forward to seeing you again. Thanks so much for taking the time to read my letter to you. You are loved 😍. I look forward to seeing you again.

  1. Another wonderful piece again, thank you so much Olayinka. Opportunities/chances indeed abound and it’s our responsibility to take them. The Holy spirit inspires and helps us to take rights steps in time.
