Some days back, I resumed to an orientation camp and reported to the clinic because of my profession. The same day came with an rushing emotion of anger because of what I experienced at the camp clinic

The Head of Clinic entered and we introduced ourselves, he picked me out of every other person and started questioning me. Why would he do that?

Why will he ask me that kind of question?

People that have seen me physically would know I’m a slim person , tho I’m used to quite some questions and some judgement about me but this was public and really embarrassing.

He asked me what my genotype was. Even when I told him the right one, he still wouldn’t believe because of my stature. He collected my name, ID and phone no to confirm.Who did I offend na?

To think that was all o, days after he came back again but this time he called me out and asked the same question. I didn’t know whether to just give him silent treatment but alas, we got to his office and he asked for my name and other information

From there, he got to know I’m Yoruba, asked where I came from and the gist started from there until another official entered to disrupt it. I myself enjoyed the gist… Some people know I love gist.

Then this scripture clicked; All things work together for good to them that love God.

The messy situation I thought it was created a cordial relationship that could help me in anything I might be needing.

Sometimes, God breaks us to build us. My ego was broken cos of the intimidating questions but it got me a build of connection I might need now or in the future.

Be flexible, before you get angry about a situation, see God in it working it for your good.
