Sometime last week, a friend and I agreed to hang out. Y’all know you have to chill with great minds every now and then.
So we decided to go see a movie. My friend is actually a blogger too (www.inspiresom1today.wordpress.com. You wanna check out her posts). Her name’s Toluwaleyi. I’m not exactly big on pictures, yeah, but I’ll share a couple. So I went with my sister and she came with hers.
We agreed to meet at the mall because we were coming from different places. From the moment we left the house, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. There were more people on the road than vehicles. Eventually we found a vehicle. Unfortunately, my sister and I were caught up in traffic. It was really bad and the bus we took was super congested.
The worst part was, we were standing in the bus. After a while, I couldn’t breathe. It was so scary. Then my sister had a stomach upset that left her feeling the need to vomit.
Toluwaleyi and her sister, Tosin were already waiting at the mall. They called a number of times and it was always the same response, “We’re stuck in traffic.”
We were to see a movie for 3:05pm and we got there five minutes later. My friends had gotten their ticket. We tried to get ours but it was already sold out.
I sank into the chair, tired and completely disappointed. The day had just gone from bad to worse. Why did I even bother?
I sat for a few minutes talking to God, “I can’t believe it’s all turned out like this. Why God?” I was so sad but from somewhere deep down, I cried to God for a way out.
You know what’s amazing? I left the mall some minutes to seven that day believing that stuff they say, “Every cloud has a silver lining.” You know that one?
It means that even the worst situations have some positive aspect. And yeah, like always God came through for me.
My sister and I got a place to sit in the bus during that difficult ordeal and that was just what we needed. Oh, and a bottle of water which we got afterwards. Then we got out of traffic.
Tosin sold me her ticket. So she and my sister, Moyo spent the time talking(Moyo told me later that she needed those words. They were like honey to her soul). And Toluwaleyi and I got to see the movie of the year, “The Wedding Party!” I really enjoyed seeing that movie.
Afterwards, we took pictures, got somethings in shoprite and went home, grateful for a day well spent.
It’ll probably seem mundane to some people but I was ecstatic that day. You know why? Cause it was refreshing to see again, that God indeed cares about the little things. He will come through for you. You only have to ask.
And no matter how hopeless and miserable that situation seems, He’s got a plan.
I keep holding on to that as the year comes to an end. And you should too!
Know what He told me this morning?
