Eeewoooo!!! See my life o!
Do you want to know what happened? This girl insulted me sha!
Pause a bit…how was your day? Hope it was a beautiful. Mine was splendid. I went out with my family and God surprised us. It was just amazing. We were FAVOURED. For you, trusting God for something, the God I serve continually will supercede your expectations in Jesus name, AMEN!!!
Now, to my gist. Yesterday on my way to church, a beautiful lady messaged me (DM) on Instagram. By the way, if you are not following me on IG, I really need to know why…lol
This girl started with “you look good”. It’s not easy to be a handsome man na. My wife took eye to market… (I’m so feeling myself this evening). And we started chatting. As a love specialist and a counsellor, I am obligated to extend love to EVERYONE.
We chatted on and off from IG to WhatsApp to Skype…And I knew already that she was a “hooker”. I should have just stopped there with her but I have never ceased to ask God to use me. I wanted to be a blessing to this Lekki babe. She just kept talking about being broke and hungry and I knew she wanted money.
This afternoon, I did well to give my wife a brief intro to what was happening as the events unfolded. This pretty lady agreed to meet me. I suggested the Circle Mall at fifth roundabout and offered to buy her food while we talked. She said she didn’t like the idea, asking that I meet her at a hotel. She told me how much a room costs. Interesting!
I insisted on meeting her at the Mall. When leaving, I told the Holy Spirit these words, “Please use me today for this girl. Use me even more than you’ve ever used me at Evening of Worship or any ministration “. I really wanted to bless her.
Long story short, I met her at the Mall. She acted like she was repulsed at my sight (spiritual things). I bought her food, paid and she walked out. We sat outside the eatery in the Mall for a while but she was uncomfortable with a simple conversation. All she wanted was money and I knew it. I had cashed money from the ATM before seeing her (I had told my wife I would give the girl money).
But looking at her, she seemed too self conscious like someone she knew would see her. I didn’t want to embarrass her by stretching forth the mint notes the ATM dispensed. I then told her I would transfer the money. She was okay with that and I walked her out, paid for her bike and she was off.
She sent me the account details and the next few minutes after, she just kept calling me. She explained how badly she needed the money. God, the Master Planner, was at work and for one reason or the other, we couldn’t transfer the money to her, so I got a divine inspiration. I invited her to my house to have dinner with my family.
I told her my wife and kids would love to meet her. I promised to increase the amount I had promised. I even took a picture of the folded wad of notes to prove I was serious. I hoped she would come and my God could love on her through my family.
That was when she showed me her real face o!!! The plenty words started flying until in summary she called me an Idiot and immediately blocked me on WhatsApp. The moment that happened, I laughed and I said a prayer. I HAD DONE MY OWN PART; I HAD TRIED.
I forgot to tell you. When I collected the money from the ATM, I put it in my pocket and prayed over the money. I wanted her life to change the moment she received the free gift of love.
So, was I an Idiot?
I saw the looks on the faces of the eatery attendants, Circle Mall security and customers. I was wearing my “The Ark” shirt, with my wedding band so obvious, walking beside an obvious “sex worker”, her dressing and makeup gave her away easily. People must have been saying, “see this married man! Isn’t he a Christian?”
It makes me understand a little what Jesus had to face when He ate and drank with “sinners”.
As I looked at her while at the Mall, and as I reflected afterwards, my heart went to ALL the girls that have been pushed into that lifestyle.
Where are the Christians that claim to be like Christ? Whose fees are you paying? Whose house are supplying food stuff to?
When I got home, I lay on the bed and Esther walked in. I took her in my arms, hugged her, kissed her and told her I loved her. And my mind went to that girl again. She was once a child. Maybe if someone had started a children’s club and loved her the God-kind of way! Maybe if the church she last visited was more concerned about her soul than the numbers! Maybe if her Christian neighbour would only smile at her and extend a hand of fellowship!
Can we be Idiots again for the sake of the gospel? Can we love the unloveable like we have been called to? Can we risk public humiliation just to save a soul?
CAN WE TRULY LOVE IN DEEDS, NOT JUST IN WORDS???
Can we stop feeling good because we sow seeds in millions to our BIG CHURCHES and get a visit from the pastor when thousands can be saved and given another life with that amount of money?
It’s a call to LOVE!!!
