I woke up today remembering how my whole life flashed before my eyes, a thousand things I would and wouldn’t have done swept through my mind in milliseconds while my body roasted on, the fire was everywhere. I looked at the cylinder and the burning waste bin beside it, I was horrified, I thought it was going to explode, I definitely thought that moment was my last…  In my shock and fear, I managed to unlock and run out from one of the jammed doors, still terrified, I couldn’t understand what just happened, it felt like I looked death in the eye and it looked away. I was numb.

Today marks ONE YEAR of the tragic GAS EXPLOSION that almost claimed my life.

I am most grateful to God Almighty that I am not just Living but a Testimony. My everyday life is a testimony, my ability to breathe, talk, walk, see, hear, and do every other thing I can is a testimony.

I watched people die, but God still kept me, Grace kept me, I cannot begin to talk about my experience at the hospital, fear of not making it to the next day was all that filled the ward, fear of waking up to the realization that the person just beside you has passed away and you thinking you might be next was so intense, on many occasions I was going to give up, pain and fear was an everyday torment,  but Mercy said NO. Instead, my experience made the Grace of an invincible God visible.


Recovery after the incident isn’t easy I must say. Being a liability and always dependent, feels just like my life is on hold. All sorts of uncontrollable emotions run through me, sometimes I’d feel depressed, lonely, abandoned, stranded, the list goes on and on, but the bravest thing I ever did in this first tough 1 year is continuing my life even when I wanted to give up.

I thereby use this medium to appreciate God Almighty, my family, my friends {who haven’t left}, and every other person that has tolerated me, thank y'all for the encouragement, kindness and love they sure keep me going. Life is Tough but I’ve got a God that’s Tougher, I'll do my very best to remain Strong and Unbreakable.

HAPPY 1 YEAR GRACE ABOUNDING ANNIVERSARY TO ME."
