I AM A VIRGIN
I left for work that Monday morning feeling optimistic only for me to get to my office and meet an envelope lying on my table. I tore it open and discovered that it was a termination letter.
I ran to my boss office to ask him what my offence was then he said since I have chosen to repay the Pastor and his family with disgrace then there was possibility that I would bring disgrace to the company. He warned me to leave before he ask the security to throw me out.
With depression written all over me, I took my bag and walk out of the company dejectedly. My Secretary who was moved embraced me and told me to be strong.
On my way to my apartment, I bought a strong rope and went home with the plan to commit suicide as I was fed up of everything. Getting home, I tied the rope to the ceiling and was about to hang it around my neck when a call came into my phone.
I stopped what I was about doing and went ahead to answer the call. It happen to be one of the sisters in the ushering department who I don’t relate with.
Sis Clara: Sis Funbi, please don’t do that which you are about to do. Please, God hasn’t forgotten you, there is a reason for everything you are going through now. Please, don’t take your life, your miracle is around the corner.
Her words made me weep uncontrollably, I was sppechless. She requested for my address which I gave to her without wasting time. After about a hour, she got to my house.
Instead of castigating me, she embraced me and prayed for me from the depth of her heart. She wiped my tears and told me that the Holy Spirit sent her to me. I opened up to her and she encouraged me and gave me Bible scriptures to read.
When she got to know that I had no money to use for feeding, she gave me some amount of money. Before she left me, she encouraged me to submit my credentials in order organizations.
Her words and coming really uplifted me, I ask God for forgiveness for thinking of committing suicide and decided to begin life afresh. Two days later, I made photocopies of my credentials and submitted it to different organizations and even schools.
Holy Spirit: is it people’s words that matters or mine?
Caleb: Your word Lord but this is a lady that has defiled herself and every one in the church is aware. Lord, this is shame. It’s not as if I am asking for a virgin because I am not a virgin but the news is all over the church
I AM A VIRGIN
Holy Spirit: I gave Funbi to Moses because she has what it takes to take the ministry I gave him to the next level but the moment he broke up with her, I gave the ministry to someone else as I can’t allow my name to be mocked by the. ungodly. You see, the manifestation of his destiny is tied to the ministry and the devil who doesn’t want that to be achieved decided to come through this way.
Holy Spirit: Funbi has a great ministry and you also have a greater role to play in that ministry that is if you follow my leading by getting married to her
Caleb: does that mean you are giving me the ministry you collected from Moses?
Holy Spirit: I never said so. I will tell you more when you decided to follow my leading.
What I have come to realize that God can give a promise but the manifestation can be delayed. I actually thought the manifestation to the promises I came across in the Bible will manifest immediately but I got it all wrong.
After two weeks of not hearing anything from the organizations I submitted my credentials, I made more photocopies and went in search of other organizations with vacancies. After a futile search, I got home only to realize that my cell phone was missing.
I lost a lot of contact including that of Sis Clara, I remembered that she gave me her house address so, I decided to go see her and inform her about my missing cell phone only for me to get there and be told that her mother needed an urgent kidney transplant so she traveled out of the country with her sick mother.
Being discouraged was an understatement because my only hope of getting help was dashed. When I saw that jobs weren’t forth coming, I decided to go in search of supermarkets and stores in need of sales girls as I was ready to do anything just to provide my daily bread and to be able to save for my next rent.
In the course of the search, I saw a canteen that was urgently in need of a sales girl. I went in hurriedly and was taken to meet the owner of the canteen who promised to pay me a thousand naira per day.
Though it wasn’t encouraging but it was better than sitting at home with no source of income. I resumed immediately with the mind of quitting once I get a better offer.
Working in the canteen wasn’t an easy task, there were times when I would be insulted by the customers and even by the boss. Other times, the male customers will want to fondle with my body part in exchange for money but I stood my ground.
Despite the harsh treatment from the boss and customers, I continued with my work as I was able to take care of myself and also save part of my earnings. Sometimes, I just can’t believe that I that earn almost eighty thousand naira per month now earn a thousand naira per day.
I kept on encouraging myself that all will be fine one day, I just hope it comes sooner.
To be continued
