I Am Not the Owner of My Life


So today is actually the first of December 2016.I won’t lie and say that am happy that the year is about to end. The truth is that I really wish I could have a do-over. I still have so many plans and projects that are yet to see the light of day. I vowed I was going to buy a car this year, but am still riding my legged Benz with style. I thought I was going to meet le boo and have him pop the million dollar question, guess what I have no le boo not to talk about every other thing else that comes with commitment.

I tried out so many business opportunities but none of them worked out. What about the countless interviews I went for? Companies sent me interview invites when I didn’t even apply, and they never got back to me. Am still at my old job even though I boasted about leaving in March.

Last night as I lay on my bed and took stock of my 2016, my heart broke into a thousand pieces. I couldn’t even sleep. Several unanswered questions popped through my mind over and over again. Did God abandon me? I thought we had a deal? Is there something am missing? Is something wrong with me? Am I not attractive enough? People are achieving their dreams around I just wonder, why my case seems different?

As I pondered on 2016 and everything that has happened this year. I remembered this hymn we sang while I was in secondary school.

Please, allow me to share the lyrics with you

I have an anchor that keeps my soul

Steadfast and sure while the billows roll;

Fastened to the Rock which cannot move,

Grounded firm and deep in the Savior’s love!

Then it occurred to me, that it didn’t matter that I did or didn’t achieve “anything” in 2016.I am alive and well, I have all my body parts intact, I might not have moved much but am not the same person I was last year. I might not have been able to buy a car but I wasn’t involved in any accident of any kind.

Even if there was an accident and I was in pain, am not dead, my business proposals were not accepted but are not hungry, even if I were broke to the point of selling my personal effects, I am not dead, am still surviving. The icing on the cake is the fact that am not the owner of my life, I have a sure anchor that is steadfast even when the storms of life seem to overtake me.

I still believe that all hope is not lost. I have made up my mind to enjoy this season, I will attend as many ends of year parties and thanksgiving services as I am invited or not invited to.

I hope you take the cue from me and enjoy yourself because despite everything that you think has happened to you, a living dog is better than a dead lion.

On this note, I want to joyfully welcome you to December 2016, it’s a good time to have fun and celebrate the gift of life.

Happy new month lovelies!!
