This is a continuation of my special christmas miracles series. To get a better understanding, make sure you read part 1 and part 2. Then come back and join me here in part 3. Trust me, you do not want to miss any of it. Now, let’s get back to it –
Again, because my God was dealing with me in doubles, my fourth miracle happened that day as well. Now the delivery details of the shoe said it would take 7-10 days to get to me. But, I started planning my Sunday attire for that week and I thought it would be nice to wear those heels with my cloth. Exactly two days after the order was made, my shoes arrived! No read that again. My shoes ARRIVED! Something that was meant to take 7-10 to get to me ordinarily took 2 days because I was just thinking that it would be nice to wear it that Sunday. Now let me even psyche you, I ended up not wearing the heels that Sunday. I wore trainers as always..lol. But God was showing me and teaching me that He paid attention to the desires of my heart however silly. My Father definitely knew that I would not wear them that Sunday, but He brought what I desired to me.
Fifth miracle – I got a merit in an assessment. You are probably wondering why this is a miracle..lol. It is o because I did not know what to expect with this one. I had tried to do the assessment to the best of my ability, but I just wasn’t feeling like myself that period. I was also a bit worried that the result came out a few days to Christmas. I really did not want anything dampening my holiday mood. Thankfully, I passed it with a merit sef. Now silly me saw the result and was upset thinking that I could have scored more. I had to remind myself of how unsure I was to begin with. God had actually been merciful to me and granted me favour. Instead of being grateful, I was about to whine. I immediately brought myself back to order. I am grateful for passing this particular assessment with a Merit. There is a second bit of it, and I hope I make a distinction this time. We will watch and see.
Sixth miracle – That same day, a friend messaged me on WhatsApp. Now a little back story, we had spoken a while back about going for a manicure and pedicure together. I have fragile fingernails that tend to break at the slightest provocation. Consequently, I prefer fixing my nails. I feel like my hands look nicer when my nails are fixed. It’s Christmas and of course I wanted to fix my nails, but I couldn’t afford to. So, he messaged me all of a sudden to ask if I ended up doing my manicure. And I replied that I did not because honestly I did not want to do it without him (as planned) and now I have spent the money on something else. Hence, I basically could not afford to fix my nails now.
He replied asking me if we could still do the manicure and how much it would cost. In my head, I am thinking it is like he did not read that there is no money for me to fix the nails. But I replied yes we can always do it and told him how much it cost. The next thing he said was ‘oya let’s book na. I will do Christmas nails for you.’ And my lovelies that is how I got my Christmas nails. Shall I insert a picture for you guys? Lol! I will consider it. Go and watch the new videos on the instagram page and you will see the nails there lol.
What is my point? God was using various people unexpectedly to grant my Christmas wishes. It moved me. I am not sure he knew how excited I was and again it was not about the nails, it was about my God. I mean not having my nails done would not have killed me. Due to the multiple lockdowns and situation of things with covid, I had only done my nails once in 2020 and I was doing just fine. But He heard that little wish in my head and gave me another Christmas gift. It is the intentionality for me!
Seventh miracle – A day later, there was a knock on the door. Usually, I am the one that runs to get the door but that day, I really could not can. So, one of my housemates answered the door. It turned out that the University had sent us Christmas hampers. I am not sure they have ever done it before. At least during my undergrad years, I never received any hamper. Oh, it had all manner of things inside. From crisps to different chicken cuts and a bunch of things in there. Some I did not even know and did not bother trying..lol. It was a pleasant surprise and it definitely was a nice feeling to have enough food. Well from nails to being spoilt with food. I do not know about you, but I like it. I really really like it!
So, this is another account of four miracles and we have five left to go (dancing). That would feature in the final piece from the series. I really just hope that this series would actually ignite something in you about how much faith you can have this year.
Enjoy this one until same time next week Friday..lol.
