Sometime last week I was to embark on a journey. My journey was fixed for Wednesday and my flight was scheduled for 12 noon. On Tuesday, that is the day before the journey I was stuck in a lot of activities . I had a good number of people to see, I had a lot of arrangements to make and I had a lot of things to get that were not planned for.
I had already made for preparations the week before my journey but some things came up that I really had to attend to before travelling. You wouldn’t believe that by 11 PM I hadn’t gone to bed. I needed to sleep early so that I could wake up early for my journey the next day because I didn’t want to miss my flight at all.
By the time I returned to the house it was already 10 PM. I had to do some things, take care of my baby, and all. By 11 PM I tried to pack up my things but I felt so tired and sleepy so I went to bed hoping that I would wake up in the next four hours .
The next day I heard the voice of My husband right in my sleep calling my name. And the next thing I felt him pulling my right hand. So I opened my eyes and I saw him sitting beside me. He was like wake up its 8 AM! Your flight! On hearing that, I jumped out of bed immediately. I was so confused I didn’t even know where to start from. I was yet to pack my bags, I had my baby to tidy up so that we could leave etc…. I didn’t just want me to start from.
It’s is a 3 hour drive from my house to the airport. As I was packing and tidying up the baby something told me
“you would not be able to miss the flight. There is no need wasting your time”.
I paused and almost yielded to it but just then I remembered a message I had listened few months ago. In that message I was told that every child of God has dominion over time. I felt reassured and continued to prepare. With the little slacks here and there at around 11 AM I was fully set. I had just an hour to get to the airport which was a 3 hours drive from my house. I got a cab and told the driver to be as fast as possible and then zoomed off . All the way I kept speaking to myself. I kept on saying,
” I have dominion over time! I’ll get there before time and I will not miss my flight”.
When the driver eventually arrived, I checked my time and it was just 11:45 am. I didn’t know how it happened and how a three hours journey was compressed into about 45 minutes. All I knew was that I am a child of God and that time answers to me. I got into the airport. At the entrance, I experienced another delay. The door refused my husband from entering. It drew an unusual attention. By the time he was thoroughly checked it was discovered that the iron buttons on his shirt was responsible it the denial. By the time we were cleared it was already 12 pm. We went to the Check-in Desk and there we were told the flight we booked for was already boarding and that we were late.
On hearing that, my hope dropped. I looked at my husband and asked him what he suggested we do. He smiled back at be with so much peace and said
“we are children of God. Things work for us… we cannot miss this flight”.
I smiled back at him and we looked back at the person on the desk. We told him to check us in and that we’ll make it to the plane in time. He looked at us with surprise, as if he felt impressed on our decision. He gave us a nod and in less that a minute he gave us our tickets. Immediately turned to go to the boarding unit, a man in their uniform rushed to the desk and asked his colleagues what the problem was. When they told him he began to scream at us that there was no way We were going to get on the flight because we were late. Because we didn’t know this man, was returned back to the person who checked us in and asked him if we could reschedule. He looked at us for about three seconds and told us sternly
“Go you will make!”
So we headed to the boarding units.
That man didn’t give up.. he kept following us and screaming ” You will not make it. I said you will not make it. Do not waste your time. You can’t make it”
As he was still screaming at us, READ THE FINAL PART HERE
….a young man from the desk ran to us and offered to help us with check in our luggage as quickly as possible so that we could meet up with the flight.
We gave it to him and then this photo my kids for me there is no need but we kept moving on we explained the need to delete when we are trying to get rid of the patch leads becauseThis man who is choristers kids flannels and kept screaming you want to make it so do you want to make it tomorrow there is no need don’t waste your time as he was screaming a young man from the chicken bakes once was an offer to help us checking my luggage as quickly as possible so that we could meet up with the flights we give it to him.
After that the other man increased the sound of his voice. He kept shouting don’t go exclamation you have already missed the flights.
When we got to the boarding units we met a very long queue. The plane for our destination had finished boarding and they had begun the boarding process for another plane for another destination.
I don’t know why but for some reasons we didn’t ask for help or push. We waited till it got to our turn. When we got to the front, we were told that our plane had finished boarding 15 ministers ago and that if we still wanted to try we could go in. We were also told we should run as fast as possible if we really didn’t want to miss the flight.
And that was what we did we run as fast as possible.
When we got to the plane, we had the shock of the day. We were told that the plane had been delayed for us.
There was no way a plane that had fully boarded by 11:45 AM would not of taken off by 12: 15 p.m.
When we got seated, it dawned me that GETTING A MIRACLE IS IN YOUR HANDS. The miracle is always there but it’s up to you to move in its direction no matter how impossible it seems and no matter how loud that voice screams at you saying “YOU CANNOT MAKE! ITS TOO LATE! YOUR ACCOUNT IS EMPTY! YOU ARE POOR! YOU ARE A CONDEMNED SINNER! YOU ARE A FAILURE etc………
Yes that voice would come. But always remember that IT MAY SOUND CORRECT but IT IS NOT TRUE!
God (your miracle) is waiting for you…. please do not stop at the check in desk! Do not leave the airport! Do not reschedule! YOUR MIRACLE IS NOW… M…O…V…E!!! THE END! READ THE NEXT STORY “The Image”HERE
