Do not give up
I attended a child dedication ceremony Sunday the 30th day of May 2021. Upon arriving at the venue of the location, there were loud joyous and melodious songs blazing out of the sound systems at the venue. In no time, the auditorium was filled with families, friends, church pastoral team and well wishes.
The clergy commenced proceedings with opening prayers and hymns as everyone gladly joined. Something caught my attention during the course of the child christening, you must be eager to know that.
I had a closer gaze at the mother of the child and I saw how happy she was. The birth of the child had put smiles on her face and she couldn’t hide her happiness having her bundle of joy held in her warm hands.
I reasoned how she would have felt during the three pregnancy trimesters. The mood swings, loss in appetite, early morning nausea among others are some of the experiences she might have had during the first trimester.
The pain she had during the child birth is also worthy of mention because it’s generally known that giving birth isn’t an easy thing. The lesson learnt from this is that, in every challenge we face in life, there’s an expiry date only if we could endure till the end. A pregnancy that was once a thorn in the flesh of the woman later became a bundle of joy.
What are you passing through this day? Be rest assured that there’s always a light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t give up!
