The Bend Ahead

The Bend Ahead

I’m late for the new year. This blog entry was supposed to be prior to the turn of last year… Nonetheless, I’ve got to apply ancient Chinese wisdom that it’s better to be late than never to arrive. The fact is, the year began with a bang. New responsibilities, new commitments and plentiful sweat. As much as I tried to be optimistic and stay intact, I’m actually apprehensive. Very apprehensive. Though I know I won’t be alone in feeling this way, the jitters are mine alone because this is the road appointed for me. But there is a daunting weight around the bend as I tread on with unsettled anticipation. Where do I look for strength? Thankfully, there are avenues. I’m reminded of my family and friends who are always there. Their voices, smiles and willingness to communicate are the unseen encouragements that will help me on. Above all, there is a divine link I’m so grateful I can message to 24/7. This Guy had sent me a friend request since my day one. Although it took me some sixteen years to accept Him as a friend, His constant messages and support have carried me through uncountable dreaded bends in my life. Truth be told, I’m a terrible friend to Him. He is the pure essence of faithfulness, someone who accepts me even though I stink. And when I feel the whole world turns on me, He pokes me to remind me that He stands stedfast. Unbelievable friend… So, what’s around the bend? I draw strength from the fact that He’ll meet me there. Let me know if you’re interested to know this amazing Guy. I’ll get Him to send you a friend request. 🙂
