‘Aye l’oja, Orun nile se’; I have heard the song ‘Ijoba Orun’ for as long as I can remember. I sang it often as a preteen in boarding school and repeatedly when Lara George performed her rendition of it several years ago. The lyrics roll off my tongue like saying my name, yet only two days ago; ‘Aye l’oja, Orun nile se’ stood out to me. And those few words warmed my heart and lifted my spirit so much, as I realised that; ‘I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us’ Romans 8:18
I am learning that life occurs in seasons, like making separate batches of cookies, each season has a point and a purpose. Many times I feel that my foresight is not as precise as my hindsight. I often find that even in my desire and diligence to achieve my best, I will be limited by the fact that I do not know what tomorrow will bring. Making this present life a real marketplace, I am learning to accept that this is ok.
