"Just one more time
The Lord Almighty is full of surprises
He acts Supremely
He is indeed God
As humans, we believe things should be tidy
We would like them to slot neatly in place
Follow our pre-determined sequences
After graduation, we expect to find jobs and
Parents start hinting about wedding dates
After the wedding, we are expected to have children
After hard work, we expect timely promotion at work
And why not?
That’s the way things are supposed to be, right?
No harm in being orderly
How dearly we wish for things to function as they should.
But what happens when it doesn’t?
What happens when all our hopes are dashed?
When we are pushed to that wall and all we see is different kinds of hardened bricks
Some plastered and some walls simply made of concrete
Then we exhaust all avenues
We pray like never before
We even swallow our pride and ask others’ assistance
And oftentimes meet with disappointments
That come with being let down
So, we get on our knees one more time
Just one more time of calling for divine intervention
When you don’t give up on God
That’s when He shows up for you
When He sees your unwavering faith in Him
That’s when He gets to show He is All and Mighty
He makes a way where there seems to be no single way
He suddenly opens a double door where there were solid bricks
He gives you that white-collar job you wanted so much
He hands you that baby by His own means
He brings your path that man or woman created specially for you
He promotes and elevates you even above your peers
Simply because you did not give up on HimSo as you call on Him today,
Simply get ready for His intervention in that situation
Don’t ever give up, just call on Him one more time.
