On the journey to purpose:
It has been an eventful 4 weeks of my life.
I woke up to a thought to do something worthwhile while God is on duty.
At first, I was beclouded with thoughts of ‘what ifs’ that could go wrong ‘will I be accepted, will it be relevant, is it necessary, what if they don’t need you. However, one thought was constant ‘Just make that call’.
Then I called my alma mater (Lagos State School of Nursing) and I asked if there is any opening for a volunteer teaching opportunity. Alas, I was given the opportunity to teach the final year students.
It was an opportunity to teach and be taught. So much to learn and much knowledge to give away.
The coordinator, the school principal and vice-principal and the academic staff were very supportive. They put me through the concept of teaching and just allowed me to soar, to identify myself and I wasn’t pressurized at all. That was learning indeed!
During this period, I met an amazing set of intelligent, futuristic students who are willing and in sea h of knowledge, who were devoted to the journey set before them. I was privileged to have impacted the lives of this students and I’m proud to say I have them in my corner.
Where am I going with this?
The bible says ‘your gift will make a way for you
You will speak and hear like the learned
An excellent spirit dwells inside of you.
And lots more.
What voice are you hearing?
what is limiting you?
what present situation is drawing you back?
what are you feeding your spirit?
And above all,
How far can you see?
As far as you can see and know the word that God says about you, nothing can by any means limit you.
I hereby say a big thank you to the staff of Lagos State School of Nursing for this treasured experience and for humbling me with their love and acceptance.Also to my friends, you can be what you want to be God willing.
Give and it shall be giving unto you. In good measures, pressed down and running over shall men and women and the world will give back to you.
