Some days I think that God deserves a round of applause. Lol. Yes. I am a bit loco like that. Everything that he does or ‘allows to happen‘ (<– I have just learned that ka one) is intricately planned.
Around midway last month, I got the strangest urge about the month of October. *hides face* I get those a lot. Strange urges. I once described them as spooky to a friend – she didn’t like it much. Never mentioned it again. About this urge – that used to be called spooky, it was a feeling that never left. Kept coming back. A feeling. Oba a knowing and what was it?
October is going to be hard-ish
So what did I do with this information? I went on a 7-day fast for the month of October. Prayed and believed and bound whatever would be tiring me. This is what I have picked up along my journey. This is the ‘normal’ reaction.
It’s 22nd October and I gotta say, the last 8 days have been hard and I mean hard. Just Wednesday’s post alone, left me both physically and emotionally drained at 11am – Iwe mwa, ya donno!
This led me to the question, was my reaction wrong? Like what was supposed to be my reaction? Is one reaction supposed to work in all situations? That is the question isn’t. Because if my reaction was the right one, that would mean that my Abba did not answer my prayer. Oba his answer was no. Ohh.. I don’t like the thought of that last one – God saying no. Eish!
Hmm… What if in addition to the prayer (because prayer is really important), I had rearranged my days? What if I had not over committed? What if I had chosen to sleep early, instead of trolling #UgBlogWeek for socks all night (Guilty, as heck on this one)?
I guess what I am ineloquently trying to say is most times one shoe doesn’t fit all. We serve an amazingly creative God but my mind boogles at how we are so quick to forget that little fact. Tehehe, the Bible itself describes the ‘creatures’ in heaven and you are like:
Ekiki?? What do you mean eyes all over the wings.
May we live life in abundant expectation of the unexplainable, but also have the innate wisdom to apply it correctly, especially in our ordinary days.
