HE loves me, I can not say why, Jesus  loves me I can not say why.

On  Calvary HE died to save my soul. HE loves me I can not say why.

The name my parents gave me kept me even when I was straying away from my Creator..Devil came  at a point in my life and pushed me off my course.

Peer influence almost finished the devil’s assignment for my life.Finishing secondary school was a hell for me. I was. I was not organised mentally and otherwise.Skill I could not learn.I wanted classy life instead. To make it in life any how.

By 18 years old, I had been initiated into the Yahoo world of fraud and crime.I was growing in leaps and bounds.The circle of friends I had then we’re fully into this.

We would at times gather in the apartment of one of us-  we would be around 8 or 10.Everyone would take different sitting posture.

Some on the couch and some on the carpet , each with his own computer system doing  what he knew best to do- chatting with their victims online.

Only God could have done this! The robbers could not escape...

Come and see everyone using his charm to dwindle the person on the other side.I had followed them every where seeking  supernatural help. Looking back now, I want to thank God for restraining me somehow.

This is because I would get divers charms that cost me fortune, but on getting home, it would no longer interest me to use it I had used my  girlfriend then to help chat with the white men when I had finished  discussing  with them  on my system.God was working out my salvation.

My girlfriend got married. I managed to write GCE and got admission into one of the Polytechnics. The new environment and status  began to mould me gradually.One thing struck me. Whenever I was broke and I asked my friends  incrime for a raise, they would tell me they had no money. 

But when any of them come to me for help, I would oblige him.Little did I know that God was trying to separate me from them.God put new interests in me. I did not feel the urge to go into the business.

When I was packing my things to a new place if abode because of school, I brought out all the charms and burnt them. Another thing God used to speak to me was when my step mother decided to take me to a spiritualist to help in this business. I met with the man.

Only God could have done this! I smoked and drank for decades...

He told me what to bring and do.When I got home and was ruminating on this, it was like I heard a voice telling me that if I later had a breakthrough by the help of God, my step mother would want to take the glory that she led me into wealth.I did not go back to the man.

By the time I finished my HND , I had met with the Lord Jesus Christ.HE transformed my life and gave me new life and new hope.My church going now has a meaning unlike  before I finished serving the nation  in 2018  and God has given me something else that is far better to be doing. I realised frustration leads people to crime.

I did not see myself becoming anything without education and good work so I delved into the easiest thing to do —  crime But crime is not easy. One must be running pursuing protection by all means.

Thank You Lord Jesus for the saving grace
