DARA

The alarm clock rang,

“In my dream again?” Dara sighed as she dragged herself up to pray, remembering all her travails. “God ,I am literally tired you know”. She said.

She got dressed for work , at least she could manage to feed herself.

At work by 9am instead of 8:00, her boss called her into his office. “This man again, I have fallen into his trap again” Dara complained.

Same old story, as she pulled her shoe to enter her kitchen to fix dinner, she reminisced on what her boss said “Dee, when will you consider me? I am a Christian too”

Just before she could finish… her phone rang ” oooh, this aunty again!” she exclaimed

“What were you expecting from her”, her friend Toyin said while giving a face.

” I want to further my studies, I am only working to get money for that, not to gather ceramic plates in preparation for husband’s house” Dara shrugged while staring at the beautiful plate she had in front of her at the restaurant her friend took her to.

” What happens to our friend , you would only delay him?” Toyin winked.

“Who said I am interested, even if I am, I don’t want anything distracting me” Dara replied.

“First class student, sorry o” Toyin shouted.

Let’s see if you get a man after leaving the country for 4 years, she further chirked.

“Well, the Bible also tells us not to lean on our understanding” Toyin thought aloud.

“Now, God is talking through you ?” Dara smirked back.

Fiction

*******

There is confusion here and there in decision making for what next in our lives.

Yours might not be like Dara who is debating marriage or career. It might be anything.

Proverbs 3:5 Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Proverbs 3:6 Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Proverbs 3:7 Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to God! Run from evil! (The MSG BIBLE).

Man is quick to reason what the future holds for us. Be sure to know that man like you and all around you might not understand the ways of God for you, the steps of my righteous are ordered.

Worry not your head, lean not on the understanding of your physical sense but on God’s understanding of you and His purpose for you.

Follow God through one step at a time. Understand God and run with him.

Whether it’s this first or that first, let him lead. Be encouraged.

Happy Sunday!
