“When I think of God’s goodness to me, I honestly do not even know where to begin. I am grateful for my father’s Nigerian-based engineering scholarship that brought him to the United States and for his decision to stay here to raise his family. God has also blessed me with a mother who while always working overtime as a nurse, raised six children in the fear of the Lord. By His grace, I have gone through childhood and now adulthood with five people to laugh, cry and dream with! But we all get to a point in our life where God touches us directly.

This list is long as well. Making long stories short: my college honors advisor questioned if I would graduate on time. I did and went directly into medical school. The same school whose director of admissions told me a few months prior to my matriculation that I would not be admitted. Again, one of my school’s residency program directors was concerned that I would not graduate on time. I did, and with a dual degree.

Throughout my life, He has continued to open doors others said were shut. God has given me so many opportunities educationally, professionally and personally. All things seemingly being in my favor: financial strength, physical vitality, professional growth and a budding relationship. However, deep in my heart, I was not settled. God knowing best, started to clean my slate and I’ve never felt more carefree and alive.

There is always an internal struggle with finding your own peace and living up to the expectations of others. Miraculously, the closer I got to God in His Word, the more fulfilled I became just being me. I no longer need that “next” thing to make me happy, because His love is breathtakingly beautiful all by itself. While I was in training, my frustration was no stranger to tears. What I did not know then, but know now, was that my credentials have never been able to “put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?” Psalm 56:8.

Nor has any man ever proclaimed: “I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.” Jeremiah 31:3 In Our deepest pillowtalk moments, I know exactly why the Psalmist declared “Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.” Psalm 139: 7-10. With God, I have joy, deep down in my soul.”

Michael, Part 2

“This is what God’s mercy looks like. I am blessed that my daughter was not in the car and to be alive because the airbag did not deploy. My mission continues... thank you Jesus! “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23”

"It was Sabbath May 18; I had completed my sermon at the Hernando SDA Mission in Brooksville Florida. While greeting the members, I became extremely hot and dizzy, to the point that I felt as if I was going to faint. After sitting down, and regaining my composure, I went to the car and turn on the air condition to cool off. I didn’t share my situation with anyone, hoping that my body would settle down.  I felt better after the potluck, so I stayed and fellowship for a while.

Later as I left to return to Apopka, I decided to stop by the emergency room at Bayfront Health, in Brooksville Florida for a checkup. My stay there lasted for three and a half days. Under the physician’s assumption that I had had a heart attack. After numerous test and a coronary angiogram, it was discovered that there was not any blockage. One of the tests did show that my body was low in Potassium and Magnesium, that was my only problem.

I begin praising God, for His goodness. The next shocker occurred when I received a bill last month, for over $125,000.00. Again I began to praise God, for His blessings, the bill also stated that my insurance and the hospital adjustments took care of a large portion of the bill, leaving me with a pending balance of $9.37. All that I can say is praise God, from whom all blessing flow. I praise Him for not allowing me to experience a heart attack, secondly, that what I experienced was not life-threatening, and how He handled my hospital expenses.

To God be the glory, for the great things He has done!"
