A songwriter,Tommy Walker once sang , “I have a Father,He calls me His own,He will never leave me,He knows my name.Oh!He knows my name,He knows my every thought,He sees each tears that falls,and He hears me when I call”
God has never been far away from you and I,He always meets our needs even though it doesn’t look like it.
Sometime ago,while I was coming out from a business luncheon in my neighbourhood,I saw a young man with a cute little boy strolling down the road,I couldn’t hide my smile,and they did same to me. The boy was feeding on flour,apparently,there was nothing at home to eat,so I reached down to my bag,and brought out a box of yoghurt(which I had bought for my kids). He chuckled,and collected it from me. I left them immediately to rush for some groceries 10km away from there.
So I got home,and something told me to give to the helpless and needy. I didn’t have to bargain with God. I decided to visit these family once again with some clothings,and cash.I had never done this before,so I was uncertain of what will happen. Eventually,the gifts were hapilly received from me,and I felt so at peace,and overjoyed because I had met a need.
While driving,I decided to take stock of my life,and I realised how I had taken most of God’s miracles as happenstance or perhaps coincidences. I had been ungrateful. From that moment,I had a radical change in my attitude towards life and I vowed to never lose sight of God’s faithfulness.
You might as well begin to appreciate God for the little things you have because,some don’t have any to boast of. Think about that!
