Sunday 4 June 2023



I was thinking this morning.... about the meal we get to eat in life. On the 26th of May 2023, the Federal government had announced the appointment of the Deputy Comptroller-General of Immigration, Adepoju Carol Wura-Ola, as the acting Comptroller-General (CG). The appointment took effect from Tuesday, the 30th of May 2023. That would've been no news except that she was due for retirement on the 31st of May 2023. Effectively, she was CG for just one day. Hmm!!!

The blessings we enjoy in life can be akin to a scrumptious meal. The Customs CG had hungered and prayed to be served the position of Comptroller-General. It delayed for years and when it eventually came, she was only able to taste it but no time to eat to her full. She was retired.

As I reflected, I recalled a time I prayed and worked so hard to get to a position. After about 7 years, I finally got there. Thankfully, I enjoyed it for years. Not everyone that hungers get to eat the meal they crave. Some get a seat at the banquet table, savour the aroma and even touch the meal but die or retire at the point of their being served. Some others, like the Customs CG, get there, taste it but before they could eat it, it is taken away from them. Then there are those who get there, taste it and have a fill. Life is a banquet.

Life is a banquet table that serves everyone a different type of meal. I remember dreaming and working hard to study medicine and be a doctor. I was even in Medical school for a month but life says no. I ended up studying Microbiology. The rest is history. There are some that love and wish to eat amala and ewedu, but life serves them fried rice.

Have you considered why no two persons get exactly the same blessings all through life? It is because we all sit on different positions at the banquet table. You are served what is in front of you. Enjoy your meal and do not concern yourself with what life has served me because I am enjoying mine. At the end of the day, we all will have a different taste of life's banquet. John 21:22 - Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.”

Stay hopeful. God's got our back.

Happy Sunday!
