I decided to share a story with you about faith. A man who was at the point of breaking down, held firm to his belief that everything would be alright. It took quite a time , months and even couple year but at the end, he became a happy man.
His name was Kelly.
My life could not get any worse. i had finished college for about 3 years now with a Degree in Chemical engineering and yet, still no job. With no one to run to and ask for help as i cam from a poor background, i turned a beggar. Moving from street to street, asking for money from every person that looked at me. But it did not get any easier. Days came when i would not even get a penny to eat and would stay the whole day hungry and wearisome.
I remember i would always jam my both hands together and have at least a minute or two of prayers at the end of the day. I prayed everyday even when at a time, i felt like no one was listening to me. I still kept on praying because i believed so much that there is a God and he always listens.
This lifestyle of begging to survive became a part of me for about 2 years. Two years of begging for food and laying my head on the ground to sleep. The cold would make me shiver, and when the rain fell, i would cry out loud. The only words i would say was “God, hear me”.
It was just some days back, i was sleeping on the roadside when suddenly i opened my eyes to a woman trying to enter a cab when suddenly a paper fell off her bag. I was just waking up so i was not myself yet. Few seconds when the cab has gone half way, i stood upright. I looked closely at the paper as i felt it was money. I remember being so hungry that day as i had not eaten for the past 3 days, so every thought of mine was that of a meal.
I walked to pick this paper and to my greatest surprise, that was not just a paper. It was a paper payment of $50,000. I suddenly became wide awake. The thoughts that flooded my head where beyond count. As i kept looking at the front of the paper, i turned the back and saw a phone number and a name. A Mr. Owobi was crested on the back of the paper.
I knew i had to return the paper to its rightful owner so i searched around and asked someone for a phone and made a phone call to the number. To my surprise, the CEO of an Oil Company in the city was the one that picked the call. He requested a meeting with immediate effect but i had to tell him that i hadn’t no transport fare to carry me along to his company as it was way far from where i was. MR. Owobi sent a pick up to me. For the first time in my life, i entered a Lamborghini, they called it.
We arrived our destination few minutes later and i was escorted to a room to freshen up. After that i was served the most sweetest and well prepared meal i have eaten in 3 year now. I finished the whole meal. Few minutes as i was looking around the room, someone came in and said, the CEO wants to meet me now.
I walked into MR.Owobi’s office and he welcomed me. We started talking and then he asked me my story. I explained everything to him and guess what happened next. He not only made me a worker in his company but i was promoted to assistant Manager Instantly.
From begging and sleeping on roadsides, i started earning up to $100,000 monthly. This can only be God.
He is indeed an awesome God.
No matter what situation we face in life, have faith and believe that God is working out a plan that will surely elevate us to the Top.
