Today's traffic ....Oh my
I left my house 7: 32 and got to accra 9:57 . Waow. Normally it takes 45 minutes tops from home to accra........ The pain I feel around my buttocks ...... its like I was spanked with a thick plank! !
I have this friend. I met him 5 months ago.
Now listen I'm not the most prettiest or the cutest or the most amazing girl out there. But I'm smart. Very intelligent. I have an amazing gift to create and design. I can hold conversations. I have a face people can't seem to confirm if it's a cute one or a pretty one and body ....blah blah...... most of all the plans and blessing God keeps bring my way. ........ I really am "ANNA the BELLA " so yes men easily lust after me.i find it even the least bit annoying and such a turn off when someone is talking to me and you can clearly see its all lust when they compliment you and have the nerve to say"oh it was just a complime".... her! Niggar! .....okay. ....anyway my point is there are still men out there who do have your best interest at heart because they met you and like the person you are. They don't even want to chat with you all day just to get your full attention or even want you sexually. .... I have a friend like that. Every day few words on WhatsApp and that's it. No let's "hook up" "hang out" ..... no rubbish. Just stuff like this. ..........
JK has been starving for the past few days. The day before he couldn't sleep well. Very early yesterday morning he got some jollof rice but that could not satisfy the hungry dry bones that cried out for replenishment. When you have been hungry for over a period of time your system requires a constant supply of diet but such a thing is only a wish for JK at least for now.
He takes in a lot of water after the jollof and bangs his hope on Lunch. It's Lunch time and he realize he has only 10 cedis left in his pocket. Wow! What is he going to eat and what is he going to use as transport home? 10cedis is not enough to buy a good meal that could fill him up. Anyway, he is used to this. He has seen that many times. He quickly scans the food joints around. 10 cedis will not be enough for food and transport at his regular restaurant. This is tough! Perhaps he can get some waakye (rice mixed with beans). He has had enough of that. Ah! He could eat Banku. Well the last time he eat that at the other joint nearby it was about 9cedis unless he avoids fish or goat meat. What of 'broode ampesi' (boiled plantain) or even 'red red' (Boiled beans and fried plantain). Red red could cause tsunami in the tummy.
Alright, so boiled plantain then. He majestically walks to that joint around the office and beckons the waiter.
JK: Hi, how are you?
Waiter: I am fine.
JK: Please do you have boiled plantain and palaver sauce and how much is it?
Waiter: 11cedis with fish, 10cedis with chicken.
JK: Do you have it with egg and how much is it? Please check and let me know.
JK: Did you say 7 cedis? Please can I have that? (In his mind, he screams thank God! I will ve some change to take home)
JK is still not full after the boiled plantain. May be he can take Kofi 'Broke man' (roasted red plantain) before he gets home. At this point it is not about a balanced diet. It is all about getting full and strengthening the bones.Oh he forgets he has only 3cedis left on him. He shuns the idea. It will be a disaster to attempt any further spending at this stage.
Day over. On his way home, he walks past the roasted plantain seller, he spies them on the grill but says in his mind...no temptation. Just then, the plantain seller asked: Should I pack some for you? JK is a regular client. It's ok. I don't have enough money on me he said. Thats not a problem, you can bring it tomorrow. Are you serious he quizzed? Yes the woman said.Does God do miracles with 'kofibrokeman' too? He soliloquied.
JK is going through tough times in almost every area of his life. His finances, health, job, and everything you can think of is not working. It's been like this for some years. Can you relate? In spite of all he still loves Jesus and follows his precepts. He pays his tithe religiously.
He seems to be on this wide bending stretch with no end in sight but in the midst of all that, he keeps smiling. He says the joy of the Lord is his strength. It's not easy he says. He doesn't know when all will end but his trust is in God.
Is JK's story similar to yours?
There is only one thing I can tell you, the narrow road is not easy to travel on but TRUST GOD!
1 Peter 5: 10 says "And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast."
God is not sleeping.
Jesus loves you!
