Popular Nigerian blogger, now mother of one, Linda Ikeji, has taken some time out to share some words of inspiration.
Lately, the blogger has been an object of public scrutiny, following the birth of her son. This is as a result of words making rounds that she is not engaged as she claimed to be. More interestingly, people are of the opinion that the father of her child is not ready to make her his wife.
The blogger has now come out to attest to the fact that one cannot have it all. It is not possible to get all one prayed for at the same time, she sad.
Linda Ikeji says she agrees with Oprah Winfrey’s opinion.
Quoting American talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, the mother of one says that God does everything at His own pace.
Oprah Winfrey said ‘You can have everything you want, but not at once’…and I agree. If God gave you every single thing you wanted all at once, will you even remember Him anymore? Will you continue to seek Him? So sometimes I think he just holds some things back from us so we know He’s God. It doesn’t mean He won’t give it to you, it just means He’s not ready to give it to you yet.
That’s why you see everybody pursuing one thing or the other…lol. If it’s not success, its career; If it’s not money, it’s a good job, if it’s not husband/wife, it’s a child; if it’s not pain, it’s an illness. We are all in pursuit of happiness and I think God made it so!
But here’s what you should remember. That He hasnt given it to you yet doesnt mean he won’t. God’s timing is different from ours. We just all need to have the patience to wait on His timing instead of forcing our own.
No matter what you do, never give up on God and remember that once you seek him, He will never leave your side. He’s watching and when he feels the time is right, He will give you some of what you seek…and some more. . Have an amazing day!
