Really, this word has been hunting me all this while, but it is Good that worketh in me both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Let me start by telling this short story of my encounter at my place of primary assignment.

I got there that cool afternoon and I was directed to the Council for documentation, on getting to the council I met sea of heads of women and few men, that prompted me to ask some of them some few questions. The information I got was that, that day was their paying day, my phone was down I couldn't get it charged at the camp so I couldn't take any pictures.

It got me thinking, I started asking my self some questions is government paying them? Are they challenged that they can do anything at all? Is this the reason why God has brought me to Cross River State? Is this why I refused the offer of going to Calabar when I was told not to report at my delegated place of primary assignment? Many many questions was running through my head.

Then I further ask, what was done for this people that they are been given stipends to sustain, is this dea sustainable in a country like Nigeria? Then I was told that the government organized a day skill acquisition for over a thousand citizens and started giving them monthly stipends. Then my eyes opened, how will you train people just for a day and expect them to understand the integrity of the skills. 

Then I began to ask myself, is there anything you can do? Who will support you? What do I know? How old I'm I? 

Then this word of the Lord started overwhelming me.

Philippians  4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. & Philippians  2:13  For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Hi Joshua,
It's difficult to know what is behind the decisions of government. There is usually no transparency or logic as we know it. But they always have a reason to do what they do. No matter what country the government is governing. But good for you to take notice and assess the situation. Good for you to have your own values. And glad you are here at World Pulse.
hugs...JoMarie
