I remember seeing Lord Kenya now Pastor Lord Kenya in my first year(2009) singing some of his greatest hits to the admiration of students during the ATL hall-week. Some of those songs were “Chick yi oy3 bu3, K-to-the-E-N-Y, etc” Fast forward a couple of years and I’m in my final year(2013) and a changed Lord Kenya sings “Jesus oy3 bu3” and again the crowd look on full of admiration.
This makes me ask, “Was he meant to use his incredible performance skills to wow people or to woo people to the house of God?” Often a times we go through the struggles of life; striving to succeed and by grace we most often do but the question is are we succeeding for God or are we striving for our own success. A glaring example is Lord Kenya by all means he was a success but from his own words he did not consider himself successful.
I’m sure before this semester begun we all came to Campus quite excited:
“Finally am of to the university” says the first year
“I’m no longer a fresher” says the second year
“A step closer to final year says the third year”
“One more lap says the finalist”
But have you asked yourself what does God want for me this academic year or what are his plans concerning my life. Do not get me wrong, it’s important to strive for success and only human to be happy when you succeed but all I’m saying is let’s strive for success in line with the will of God.
And to the finalist, I’m sure most of you may have asked ,“After school what next?” But I believe when you know the will of God for your life; well I’m not saying life will be easy but Life will be worth living.
