Being Alive

Posted February 17, 2020 from Nigeria

I wake up each morning, I see that I'm still breathing in the land of the living, I see the good weather, I see that some other people are still alive, I see plants and animals still living, I hear the birds of the air still chanting their choruses, I see the seas and its inhabitants still bubbling with life, I know that God is in heaven is still taking care of us, oh these give me hope.

Now being hopeful I know I should add value to human lives, I know I should not be static, I know I should be an encourager, I know I should reach out to others especially through World Pulse.  I also know that before I become a practical encourager I must encourage myself.

What gives me hope is the ability to identify my academic shortfalls and today I have taken the bull by the horns and I'm uplifting myself above that status that I know did not befit potentials, my personality.

I shared with this family sometimes ago how I was compelled to go to commercial school (the lower acade of the Secondary School) in my country, just because I'm a female child while the rest of the boys went to secondary school. I felt life had failed me.

Today I am hopeful, very hopeful that even as I'm writing now I am in the University doing my Master's Program in Diplomacy and Strategic Studies. Oh! what a hope life has offered me and is still offering me.

What gives me hope is that when one is alive one must achieve every good one desires.

It gives hope that even after this Master's Program I can still proceed for a PhD program.

It gives me hope that I am alive.

It gives me hope the more, that God is faithful and He's always there for us. So, 'Being Alive' Gives me Hope!

I want to submit here that if I'm not frequent in this our lovely family of WP is because of time for now. Please bear with me darling sisters.

Love you all

Obioma.

My dear Obioma,
Be encouraged that you'll achieve all that God has laid in your life to achieve. Being hopeful and putting action to your hope will see you through your doctorate programme. I'm hoping to see you with your doctorate degree in the nearest future. Keep hope alive, my sis.

Love,
