WITH GOD? NO SHAME!
I had no idea how it was going to be…
I was about to write my final exams in the university.
I was broke. I couldn’t even go home to ask for money, because at that point, finances were so rough that I was supporting my siblings for a while with the little I was earning on the side; but I had to quit my Research Assistant part-time job to prepare for exams, and my savings had finally fizzled out.
I didn’t want to disclose my plight to anyone. I was stuck!
I had only God to look up to…
I returned to my hostel room after class one afternoon to find an envelope with my name on it slipped under my door. On opening, I saw money in it…such that I had enough not only to see me through the exam period, but also to spare so I could help out at home! I was in awe!!!
I still don’t know who my benefactor is till date, but iTestify, that God still sends His angels to minister to heirs of salvation.
Was that all? God didn’t stop amazing me!
Talk about “daily manna” and being led one step at a time…
Exams were finally over, and I passed, with obvious divine help all the way….(another narrative entirely)
So having passed my exams, there remained the issue of paying my graduation fees, without which I couldn’t move forward. It was a rather hefty sum (from where I was standing) and the thought of asking anyone around me for such an amount of money didn’t even cross my mind. I figured I was stuck…yet again. And I had just the only option I always had…Look up to God.
I prayed and waited. I waited and prayed….although with very little faith. Yes, I who had enjoyed angelic intervention earlier, thought I was stretching it by asking God yet again. But I had no choice.. Out of the blues, a friend who had been out of town came looking for me frantically. She needed my help with a job, having known that I had some exposure as a Research Assistant. She was desperate, she said, and offered to pay any amount I wanted (within a reasonable margin of course). As I hesitated, she went ahead and named an amount that blew my mind (way beyond what I would have asked for)….enough to pay the graduation fees, with some left over to buy clothes, make hair and other ‘expectations’ for the graduation ceremony.
God promised me that I would never be put to shame and He made good His word. I wasn’t put to shame…just as He had promised 🙂
Testimony as shared by O.O
They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will never be ashamed.
Then you will know that I am in Israel, that I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other; never again will my people be shamed.
No one who hopes in you will ever be put to shame, but shame will come on those who are treacherous without
iTestify – Real life, real issues, real testimonies, REAL GOD!
Get ready for a deluge of hope, stirring up faith in God!
