His will

Jane imagined how her birthday party would be, she was going to be eighteen years old. She would be finally legal. She's always had a plan for her party, "let's make a statement with your party, set the standard" Cindy, her friend had told her, and her other friend high-fived in agreement. She wanted to "make a statement".

She knew her father could afford the kind of celebration she wanted, she was the only child and her father was one of the wealthiest men in the state. Her father called her to his study at their home, she was excited to go, she had already finalized the plans for her birthday.

"Jane, about your birthday..." her father started but she cut her father off saying "Yes, daddy, you don't have to worry, I...." She trailed off, telling her dad her plans excitedly.

"So, what do you think daddy? exquisite yeah?" She enquired.

"I had a different thing planned, I just think..."

"Daddy" Jane cut him off " please, I want to set the standard"

"Fine, have it your way"

"Thank you, daddy, I love you" she stood up and hugged her dad.

The day came, it had been a busy few weeks for Jane, she couldn't wait to impress her friends. She urged her parents to vacate the house for the day so that her friends would feel comfortable. She and her friends had a lot of games planned, at least the ones they could do without alcohol. Her dad gave her 2 conditions for the party: no alcohol and the party shouldn't exceed 7 pm. The party was scheduled for noon.

10 hours later, Jane felt like a total mess, it was as if everyone was against her. The party had been a disaster. Her friends that she thought were going help her with so many major things left her, her mates had snuck alcohol into the party defying her instructions. Before she could say jack, the party turned to a congregation of drunks. All her plans went down the drain, they littered her house, broke her mom's favorite flower pot. They refused to leave despite her pleas, her parents arrived around 9 pm and saw how terrible the party was going.

Jane got grounded for a month. It was supposed to be the best party of her life but ended up in total ruins. Her parents expressed their disappointment greatly.

After a month, her father called her to his office and asked "how did you like being grounded?"

"I hated it, it was the worst, I haven't been grounded since I was 12" she replied sadly.

" I was really disappointed at how everything played out, I had a plan to celebrate your birthday," her father said.

" But... I had no idea, you should have told me" Jane was sad, she had no idea.

" I tried to but you seemed focused on your idea and anything I said would seem like I didn't want you to have your way"

" What did you have planned?"

" I was going to give you my debit card to shop or do whatever you want to for that day, then go to Paris during the holidays, you've always told me of how you wanted to go to Paris"

Paris, Jane started to cry, she missed the vacation of her dreams to make a statement, she wished she could turn back the hours, she would have done everything differently.


Yesterday, I kept thinking till I fell asleep, My secondary school classmates just finished at Covenant University three days, I saw the post on Instagram yesterday night. So many of them have graduated because they went to a private University rather than a Federal one that I go to which delayed me because of the tough admission process and strike. I was happy for them but it made me sad a bit.

I kept worrying, subconsciously comparing myself to so many of my friends that have graduated.

I woke up this morning and I started thinking of it again, a bible verse then disrupted those thoughts "For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end"

I immediately said "let your will be done"

I can't keep comparing myself to them because God's plan for me is different than theirs. God has the blueprint for my life and I trust him to lead me through it.

I went to a church 4 weeks ago and the preacher asked everyone to pray that God should cancel our prayer requests. People looked as murmured what's this preacher saying till she explained that it means that God should have his way.

Sometimes we just need to sit back, let God have his way and everything will fall into place.

This article won't be complete without appreciating this set of people that encourage me.

I have also thought about this too when I saw my mate graduating this year but what can I do? Nothing and the sadness won't change anything. I just have to move on and believe God has a plan for .e too and God plan is the best.
