Angry with God?

Have I been angry with God? After all these years of serving faithfully, could God not have stopped me from having a stroke? Are there no better ways of teaching than a stroke? What kind of father would take their loving son through something as horrible as a stroke?

Well, the answer is NO! I have not felt any anger towards God. These questions are not my questions. On the contrary, I am grateful to God that my wife Past Olu and the boys have me to join them in serving the Lord for many more years.

I am glad that I have a wonderful family who stood by us. I am grateful for my church family and all the mothers that God has given me. I am grateful that I am recovering at a miraculous speed. I am thankful that God has provided financially also through all this. I am grateful to God for a loving wife. I am full of gratitude, not anger.

Why am I not angry? It is because by the grace of God I believe I have given my life to Jesus. I believe everything I have is a blessing from God. Every opportunity to preach, to lead someone to Jesus, to pray with someone, to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirt is a blessing. Each time I am privileged to counsel someone in the name of Jesus, I count it a blessing. I am a very blessed man. Having a stroke and surviving is a blessing. Having the opportunity to serve again after my recovery is a blessing.

20 I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me. ~Galatians 2:20

Till next time. Have a great day.
