“Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good. His love endures forever” (Ps 136:1)
This testimony is given to the glory of God, to the shame of the devil and for the encouragement of others. This is what happened today: One of our daughters in Christ celebrated her birthday today in a ‘strange creative’ way. She knows that I cannot easily go out to buy things. This morning she woke up very early and went under the Ogunu bridge where the fishermen bring fresh fish. She said that the women who sell fish come and buy the best early in the morning. She went there before the women and bought the best fishes available. Guess for what? Is it to cook something for her guests on her birthday today? That could have been the normal answer. But that is not what happened. She went to buy fishes for my husband and I, as a gift! She came to the door jumping for joy with a cooler filled with fish and ice. She said that giving us the fish is her birthday gift. Jesus!!!!!! I see her like Isaac (Laughter) who planted during a time of famine and God blessed him a hundredfold (Gen 26:12).
Please if you see Jesus thank Him for this daughter who surprised me today. Pray for her too! I was the one who was supposed to go under the bridge to buy fish for her. After all, it is her birthday! But grace has turned my world upside down! Words cannot describe how I feel. I planned for a quiet day today, but her (over) generous and (over) kind gift from Jehovah Overdo makes me feel like it is my own birthday. No need to wait for March. God is good to me and my family, natural and spiritual! To God be all the glory!
