Her testimony really calls for THANKSGIVING...

HAPPY THANKSGIVING Y'ALL!!!

Irrespective of where you are based, I am wishing everyone on blogsville a Happy thanksgiving as America marks another thanksgiving.....I am thankful for quite a number of things but above them all, am thankful for my one and only kid sis whom, exactly a year ago, the Lord in His infinite mercies saved from the cold hands of death and also ensured that she witnessed her convocation day......Her story is one that calls for real thanksgiving and I am indeed thankful, little wonder that since last year she has christened herself "TESTIMONY".

Read her testimony in her own exact words....



My "no dulling moment" kid sister

"I want to testify to the goodness of God over my life.
Exactly a year ago… I travelled to Oyo state for my convocation. I had to travel a week before the program because I was yet to do clearance. I got to Oyo and dropped my bag at my cousin’s place and headed for school. I got to school very early that day and I was unable to do anything as regards my clearance till 4pm. I decided to go home and
rest. I mounted a bike...myself and the bike man were arguing over the payment

“I said 30naira ni o…… d guy said 40naira ni ooo”  


……….little did I know that was the last thing we both were going to say to ourselves.

We had not moved for 3minutes when the bus before us stopped and the bike guy tried to overtake the bus only for us to be crushed by a trailer!!!!


That was it……I remember being under the trailer and the next minute I found myself across the road walking towards a shop. I looked back and saw people screaming and shouting……….. The trailer dint stop on time but I was not under the trailer but I was surprised the bike man was!!!

I stopped at a phone shop and told the girl there that I wanted to seat down…..she was shocked because my trouser n shoes were in pieces…….. I sat down and then told her that “ I had an accident just now” she got up and started shouting “ call ya papa and mama, wia u dey go? U be student? Wia ur house? Wia ur phone?” that was when I remembered that my phone, my bag and my documents were all under the trailer!!! I told the lady "my phone dey dia!" She called her brother to go and get my stuffs from the scene. Luckily for me, the guy came back with my phone and my bag along with all the pieces of my credentials!

I was surprised, I asked the guy about the bike man…..then he said “he don die”
Then, I got up and started crying…. Died!!! People gathered around me…… I picked my stuff and headed home.
That night I could not sleep… I kept thinking about the guy… I kept thinking why God saved me? Then I remembered we had been praying in church that   
My kid sis on her convocation day, few days after the accident.
“None will embark on a Journey of no Return”.

It’s been a year now… I bless God for keeping me; I bless him for today none of my friends and families have had the course to observe a minute silence for me. The devil tried so that I will not witness this day but he came too late. SHAME TO THE DEVIL!!!"

My sis and I some few years back...

It has been a year now and since that incident my sister's name on her fb page has changed to "adejoke TESTIMONY atanda"...

I am thankful to  God for making me to be thankful over her;
I am thankful today that we are not standing up and observing a minute silence for her;
I am thankful to God that my parents are not mourning over any three of us;
I am thankful to God for such a testimony; and
I am thankful today, to God for being true to His words and putting life in our confession, INDEED, WE SHALL NEVER EMBARK ON A JOURNEY OF NO RETURN!!!

Folks, I pray that thanksgivings and testimonies shall not cease from our lives and that songs of thanksgivings shall continually be sung by us all.

Once again, I say HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY PEEPS!!!


With Love and Prayers,
Omo'ba!

I had goose bumps while reading this. I thank God for the life of your sister. His eyes are constantly watching over us. Amen. I take bikes everyday and I meander in between trailers with their containers and large tanks everyday from work, so I understand. I thank God for His continual protection and guidance over my life and the life of my family members. I thank God cos none of us shall die prematurely. We shall not have any reason whatsoever to mourn. So shall it also be for you and your family. In Jesus Mighty Name. Amen.
