Let me tell you a short and sweet story today.
On a faithful day, as I was heading to a BBQ, I received a call to go pick up a friend. I agreed and headed to pick up my friend. And guess what? Since I was tired of driving, my friend agreed to take on the wheel until we reached the BBQ’s location. But something extraordinary happened on our way to the BBQ. I received a text message from the host to stop by the grocery store and get some extra drinks and water, to which I agreed hesitatingly.
But you know what? God had planned it otherwise, because our stop at the grocery store was very fruitful.
As we were about to pack the car we ran into an old acquaintance; whom we hadn’t seen in a while. We greeted each other and headed our way. Some seconds later, she comes running towards us again stating that she had locked her car keys in the car. All frustrated and sad about her action, I looked at her and immediately asked my friend to assist her (as I recalled that my friend had previously been in a similar situation and managed to unlock the car). That being said, all 3 of us headed to the grocery store to pick up the items and back to the car. After picking up the items, the car was successfully unlocked. As soon as the car door got unlocked, she stared amazed with a grateful and joyful heart. At that very instant, I exclaimed that our meeting was indeed divinely ordained. Upon hearing that declaration, she brightened up even further and gave us hugs upon hugs.
The encounter made us realize that noting happens in vein, but all things happen for a purpose and are ordained. We laughed about it and thanked the Lord for the divine encounter. Finally, we headed our separate ways and considered the day to be a fruitful one.
Today is Day 21 of the A-Z blogging challenge, and I feel great. This feeling of greatness is partly because you all. All my faithful readers and commentators.
Thank you for your support and unity. I call it Unity, because of your belief in me. You decided to tag along on my blogging journey.
Blogging is a journey for me, just as soccer or poetry might be for someone else. It’s a journey of self discovery, passion and growth. There is need for constant support in order for everyone to be successful in our different journeys.
Given that man/ woman isn’t an island, we are called to live and interact with others on a daily basis. We need people to join forces with us in order to take us farther. We can’t succeed by working alone. People who believe in our dreams encourage us to pursue and aim higher. Unity is therefore important and necessary for growth.
Who do you often unite with? If you don’t have any team members, I am willing and ready to join forces with you if need be. Networking at events also helps unite people and paths.
We all need people to unite with us. One can chase 1000 but, two or more can chase several thousands.
Therefore, go forth and unite with others as you pursue your goals.
Have a tangible tuesday.
