2022: A YEAR OF APPRECIATION.
By Olusegun Adeyemi HOSEA.
The year 2022 is gradually going to an end. It is a great things for a rational Creature to appreciate His Maker for protection ,favour and mercy upon their lives. As we all know, that this world is full of good and bad, yet we are not consumed by the wind of evil because HIS grace is sufficient enough for all . That is why we are confidence to say thank you Lord .
Many have gone beyond the grave but those of us that are still alive today, are not better than those that have passed on . We are still existing not because we are righteous or faithful but because God’s Mercy still prevail over us that is why we are still living. Therefore, it’s imperative for us to appreciate the works of Almighty Father for wonderful things HE has done in our lives as an individual, groups and family as a whole.
However, as the year is winding up, the responsibilities that come with it are enormous. The good news about these responsibilities, is that we are among the living that will fix things up. We should not allow the stress and the magnitudes of the challenges of the end of the year to swallow us .
Let us do things with caution and moderately. What is not enough today can be more than enough tomorrow. God does things in a miraculous ways. HE can bring out water from a dry land and HE can turn things round for the betterment of our lives. All we needs to do is to keep on appreciating and thanking HIM in all ramifications.
Looking at the beginning of this year, a lot of incident has happened to man kind. Many have been kidnapped, raped, turtured and killed. Yet me and you are still living . Why wouldn’t we appreciate our Maker for counting us worthy among the living that will celebrate the end of this year. Today, as I am writing, bad news (like sorrows,pains, agony and death) has come up in some families and this has destroyed their joy .
As we all know that it’s not their making but God knows more than us why those things happen the way it happened. What are will going to do than to be appreciating HIM for HE knows the beginning from the end viz-a-viz. So , for the fact that all these evil news does not apply to us, I think its better for us to say a words of appreciation .
Another, area of concern in this year is the high price in the goods and services particularly the consumption goods . The price of commodities in the market are skyrocketed beginning from this year to the end. To eat three squeal meal this day is difficult as many families are now operating formula ( O-1-O or O-O-1 ) in most cases, when you can’t eat in the morning at least you will try to look for what to eat in the afternoon so that you will not die of hunger.
Many people go to bed with empty stomach yet some are living in supplus . Of cause you may say such is life as all fingers are not equal. Remember that God has given us a huge resources in this country that can cater for the population in this land but the kind of government we are running where the few rich individual take it all at the expense of others can not make us to have a better society.
The only way for us to get out from this doldrums while appreciating God is for us to take our destinies into our hands. We can only achieve this by voting out the bad leaders from the office come 2023. Go now and collect your PVC if you want to become an agent of change for better not the one we are into now. Arise!
