I haven’t been to church in a long while and sincerely I am not good on church lately because I have some doubt. Am a catholic but today I decided to go to Winners Chapel (Living Faith) agbor,Delta state.
I wasn’t doing anything meaningful at home so I set out. I hurriedly took my bath,wore my ironed clothes and sprayed my perfume..hmmm. What a nice fragrance?
So I came out of my crib went straight to get a bike. I stood at junction to take a bike ,after some minutes I saw a bike and I entered it.
We passed through the bad untiled Road with dust everywhere along old-Lagos asaba road and our bike break down suddenly. The back tyre fell and needed to be changed.
I got down from the bike for the tyre to be fixed, after that I enters the bike,unknown to us, a vehicle with speed nearly hit us, spreading dust on my white native…..kai…my anger triggered.
I was mad and angry. What is wrong with all these female drivers.
I wasn’t a church person, but this was clearly silly and senseless.
When I sited the car,I found out it was heading to winners chapel,my direction.
So I told the bike man to speed off. I told myself I will confront her when we come down from the bike.
When I got there I payed the bike man. Went straight to where the car is parked.
I saw her inside the car, without wasting time, I started nagging and complaining to her face, but then the usher came to see what was going on.
What I saw shocked me. She came down with the aid of a crutches.
“”I understood may be she was hurrying to get to church since she was on crutches riding the car””
Oops, I didn’t know.
How could I have missed that? God!!! I felt so terrible for nagging at her. I still feel terrible right now. I met her and apologized.
Again and again I apologized, but I still feel it wasn’t enough.
The pastor preached about angered today, that made me more angry but I didn’t get much from all he said.
I learnt a bigger life lesson: love all and be slow to judge anyone or any situation.
I will like to ask a simple question for my fellow readers and viewers.
