Happy New month Good people….Sooo.It’s june 2 and its my birthday…Permit me to tell you a litte story….

Here today, a song kept coming to mind-
Standing here not knowing how we’ll get through this test….
February 5
I woke up around 1am to an unusual pain in my side and I hurt so badly that I couldn’t go back to sleep for several hours. I wasn’t sure what it was and the next day the pain disappeared, so I thought little of it. A few days later I started feeling rough, feverish and started having a dull pain again in my back area and my appetite started to decrease to the point that I was vomitting and urinating at the same time. I knew something wasn’t right.

Fast forward to the next day, I was rushed to the hospital. Immediately, the IV line was set and an IV drip was passed into my vein. In the emergency room, I lain down weak as i was examined. Not long after, the doctor said, “We would have to admit her” and I was transferred to another ward.

All the necessary test were done and the results came out few days later.

That faithful morning, I watched as the doctor was interpreting the test result. Then he came to my bed side and said,”Tope, You have been diagnosed of Acute pylonepritis(Kidney infection)…My eyes almost popped out of their socket as I was still trying to pronounce… and he turned to my mum and explained to her…My mum shoutedddddddd,
“Kidney infection ke?”
And he explained to her that, it was curable and I will be fine.
I was really scared and I began to cry and my mum came to my side trying so so hard to hide her own tears as she consoled me.

I started receiving medications- very painful procedures and was later discahrged on medications.

But holding onto faith you know best
Nothing can catch you by surprise
You’ve got this figured out and you’re watching us now

Then the real deal, I was on medications for about a month and half and all the symptoms seemed to get worse day by day. So I went back home and ran another test and the results came out even worse. I had a secondary infection as a result if prolonged use if antibiotics…

But when it looks as if we can’t win
You wrap us in your arm and step in
And everything we need you supply
You got this in control

You made a way
When our backs were against the wall
And it looked as if it was over
You made a way
And we’re standing here
Only because you made a way

You move mountains
You cause walls to fall
With your power
Perform miracles
There is nothing that’s impossible

The Miracle….
It got to that point where I didn’t know what it felt like to urinate normally, I once typed- *What does it feel like to urinate normally* on google…I wanted to know because I’d lost it..and the realization hit me and I asked myself..”How did I get here?” “God, why me?”..I was tired, so tired of taking antibiotics every day.”There must be a way out”, I told myself…I started crying bitterly. Then I knew I had to be strong for myself..

I told myself, If I had taken a lot of medications, natural remedies and instead of getting better..I was getting worse..Then there is one person I haven’t gone to…GOD.
I started seeking God, prayed, told Him all I was going through..and He HEALED MEEEEE…GOD DID WHAT ANTIBIOTICS COULDN’T DO. When I went back to run all the test, results came out fineee..

Now I am here
Looking back on where I come from
Because of you and nothing I’ve done
To deserve the love and mercy you’ve shown
But your grace was strong enough to pick me up.

I never told anyone this- but I’d never thought I’d survive because only me knew how I was feeling. As some point I told myself,”I think I am dying”….

But He saved me, not because I was worthy but grace picked me up. I could have been dead by now, It could have been a different story today. But grace chose me.

+1 today reminds me that I am a living testimony of God goodness…As I celebrate the advent of another year today…I want to give thanks to GOd for giving me ANOTHER CHANCE AT LIFE.
