Ope…

🎵🎵🎵…
Ope meta lemi o se (I will give three types of praises)
Ope meta lemi o se (I will give three types of praises)
Mo ru layo (I got pregnant)
Mo so layo (I delivered safely)
Mo tu romo gbejo (I can rock my baby)
Ope meta lemi o se I will give three types of praises)
…🎵🎵🎵

This was the first chorus rendered during the last baby dedication in my church. That was my first time of hearing the song and for some unknown reasons that song stuck with me – I have been replaying it in my mind since then.

It is so easy to thank God for a good thing, better still, it is easy to be thankful for things and not be thoughtful enough to analyse those things. Analysing the good things will make you realise that every “good thing” or “miracle” is a bundle of “miracles”.

The composer of the above song could have just said “mo dupe pe o fun mi lomo” i.e “Thank you Lord for giving me a child”. But the composer was thoughtful enough to break things down.

I am thankful for having a good family
I am thankful for provision for my family to send me to school
I am thankful for my success in school
I am thankful for a sound mind
I am thankful for being able to write
I am thankful for the idea to start a blog
I am thankful for provision to pay power and internet bills
I am thankful, thankful and thankful…..

This is December, I know you have not met your 2019 targets, better still – you might not have met your 2019 targets (like me). Do not wallow in worry or self pity, there are 1001 things that have worked for you in 2019. Be thankful!

If you do not have anything to be thankful for, please be thankful for the fact that …. YOU CAN READ THIS POST!

Forward Ever!
