Today I added a year to my years🎉🎉🎉
If you know me well then you will know I am not one to make such a big deal out of my birthday. I really do not like all the attention. However as I sat in my prayer place earlier this week (Tuesday) I couldn’t help but shed tears as I remember everything God has done for us.
I have literally been to hell and back.
I have gone through the fire and came out without smoke.
People see me and ask me how I do it and they don’t know I am asking myself thesame question.
If you have ever doubted the existence of God, I am living Proof that there is a God that rules in the affairs of men.
On a day like this, I really do not even know where to start. One thing I can say is that God is good and he never leaves His own. In the past one year I have moved from being jobless to changing my Job three times. There have been days when raising my daughter alone has overwhelmed me but God sent helpers our way. I have juggled my career, relationship with God, ministry, family especially motherhood and God has helped me to do it all.
I have moved from the helpless, confused Yejide that lost a part of herself two years ago to the person everyone call strong.
The only reason I am here is because God kept me, held me and wiped my tears. I really just wanted my birthday to come and go but as I reflected on my journey I knew I had to share this.
I may not have everything I want but I have everything God has given me and it is more than enough for me.
My life is a testimony for His glory.
No matter what you are going through now, there is a God that turns things around.
He takes everything the devil wants to use for evil and He turns it for good. This is my story.
Honestly, I don’t think I would have survived the past year without God and my awesome family & friends.
I don’t know what the future hold but I have a God who holds the Future. You might be wondering why I am this confident despite everything , it is because I have seen what He can do.
Despite all I have been through, I will choose Him over and over again because He choose me first and He died for me in the process. If you are reading this and you have not accepted Christ as Lord and Savior, this is an invitation. I am not promising you a bed of roses but I can assure you that He will never leave you. He is a Father in every sense.
I cannot end this day without thanking my family and friends. Its like everyone coordinated to make sure I don’t miss Adeola too much and I must say you all succeeded. Its been a wonderful day.
My commitment is to keep loving on my maker and creator who has kept us.
Allow me to re-introduce myself,
My name is Yejide Okungbaye, I am a medical doctor, a young widow who irrevocably loves God and is marvelously helped by Him.
Love and Revelational Light,
