Jesus Did It!
I was born into a polygamous family without any well-defined Christian direction. My father had not, to the best of my knowledge, attended any church service before his death. The little information on Christianity that filtered to us was from our mother who made a habit of attending every Sunday service (to the chagrin of our father). My childhood was thus characterized by fear of anything Christian.
My mother's effort to bring the people of God into our household was mostly thwarted by my father. He dismissed Christians as the most unreasonable people on earth, up to no good; trouble. Being a housewife and desperate for support, my mother was not keen on jeopardizing her position in the beginning, but her life became more unbearable as time went by. Our efforts to improve our state both economically and intellectually were hampered by forces beyond our comprehension. School life became hard. My brothers and sisters were capable of considerable intellectual capacity and we did very well at class level, but we ended up failing the crucial examinations. My results were a distant shadow of what my teachers and I had anticipated, but somehow I managed to scrape into high school.
My father gave up on me on the academic front even though I still felt that I had the potential to be successful in college. At this juncture it seems that something was deliberately clouding the judgment of both my parents. Suddenly my father refused to offer any financial support to me for my basic needs, let alone my education. It was at this point that I decided to visit my uncle who lived in a distant city.
After my arrival at my uncle's home, life took on a different meaning. He seemed to understand my predicament better than my dad did. He was a man who feared God, and many times we participated in overnight prayers. He prayed for me in the wake of the rebellion that is characteristic of every growing youth, and he placed me into school shortly after my arrival. Today I still strongly believe that it was my uncle's prayers that fortified me, guided me in the exam room, and enabled me to perform at the top of my class.
I proceeded to the university, where the glamour of the setting took me quickly into its custody and left little room for the faith that had slowly been building in me. My grades suffered. Even though I thought I had prepared thoroughly for an examination, the results were far from satisfactory. Suddenly I was staring at academic suspension.
During a break between classes, I traveled to another town to visit my fianc'e. During our discussion she told me that she had been victimized by recent nightmares and how a friend had taken her to a man of God ' a pastor at a local church. She confided in me that she was now feeling much better, so I made an appointment with the pastor for the following day. At our meeting, the pastor prayed for me and explained why I was experiencing problems in my studies.
God's power was manifest in that man's action and words. As he prayed aloud for me, I felt overwhelmed by the power of God that was so real: I felt weak in my joints and dizzy. For about five minutes I was in a world of my own and could only hear voices shouting, 'Amen! Thank you, Lord, for this one life!'
Since then I have never looked back. I thank God for reaching down and touching me that day. When I resumed college I never again experienced problems with my papers. My own father said he could not believe that his son was graduating. At that point I held his hand and declared that our great God never falters! He guided me even when I seemed to be far from Him because He had a purpose for me. Amen!
