Halleluiah brothers and sisters, I will like to quickly tell you a story of a woman who got employed by Lagos State Government as a result of her dedication to sweep the church premises every morning. The event happened at Ijaye Olifi Parish.
A woman was and is still fond of sweeping the church premises daily. After she finished doing that, she would come into church for early morning service with a stick of candle for thanksgiving. A certain lawmaker, Hon. Omisore, for months was mesmerized by this woman’s early morning ritual. He was touched because despite the fact that this woman didn’t have much as he does, she was always thanking God. Since that day, he, Hon. Omisore decided to emulate her and be thanking God with at least, three packets of candle every morning.
One day, there was an opening at the Lagos State House of Assembly for a sweeper, without blinking an eye, Hon. Omisore said to his colleague that he had someone who would take care of that sweeping passionately. Without mincing word, the woman was called upon for questioning was given the opportunity and till date, she has been gainfully employed as Head of sweeper at the State House, Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos.
Now, you can see what appreciating God with something as little as a stick of candle had caused a woman. You too can share a testimony if you know how to thank God with something small or big in all situations. God doesn’t even want your car or cow, all He wants is the heart that is given that thanksgiving or sacrifice. Have you thanked Him today?
