"Coffee or tea please?" The air hostess asked Gbenga, he looked around slowly and then he said "Coffee please". Gbenga was travelling out of Nigeria for the first time to resume work in the United States as a ICT analyst and he still could not believe it. He would pinch himself from time to time to be sure he was not dreaming.
The past couple of years had been exceptionally terrible for Gbenga, up till the time his appointment later came, Gbenga was living in a house with athatched roof with no toilet, he had to ease himself in the bush. Rats, cockroaches and mosquitoes were his neighbours but deep down Gbenga knew his life was more than this, he had an uncommon gift with computers and Information Technology; he would develop softwares and send to companies all over the world but nothing ever came out of it. He was on the verge of a breakdown when his phone rang, it was a Mr. Dexter from Silicon Valley in the U.S, they were interested in his software and they would love for him to be in the States as soon as possible. Gbenga's dream had finally come true.
The bible says in Psalm66:12 (KJV) Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.
Beloved, I don't know what you are going through right now but if you don't give up, if you don't stop believing and trusting God, your dreams will come true. Whenever I see a plane fly, I am still blown away by how that much metal can fly, someone imagined it and it came to pass! Your dreams too will come to pass! Don't let anyone tell you that your dreams are not realistic, they don't live in your world, they are dream killers. This week, focus on your imagination and your dreams, God has put unique things in you, draw them out this week. Refuse to listen to anyone who says your plans and dreams are impossible. You will hold in your hands, the dreams of your heart this week in Jesus name. Amen.
My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to one billion people all over the world through the Social Media. You too can become a Social Media Evangelist, please share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you were blessed. Thank you for reading, I celebrate you and God bless you.
