Have you ever had to wait by the conveyor belt at the baggage claim area? Arrrrrgh😩!!! You see that place ehn, daiz the perfect illustration of “gba kámú”. That’s a place where you can do nothing but wait for your bag(s)🛍️ even if it takes forever.
You’ll experience some emotions, as you stand there, watching other people claim their bags while yours refuse(s) to “show face”. You’ll most likely be frustrated, even angry, especially if you’re in a hurry😡. You’ll wonder when your bag(s) will “come forth”🤔, and you’ll also wonder if your bag(s) is/are lost in transit😳🙆🏽♀️. You may even envy those who are lucky enough to claim their bag(s) early. If you’re quite impatient by nature, you’ll probably feel like slamming or throwing something. Your inside go dey boil😜. You fit even say, “God, why? Why me?” or “God, when? When will it be my turn?”
However, it doesn’t matter how/what you feel, you just have to wait nâ ni. If you can’t wait, it means you can’t claim what belongs to you. If you don’t wait, toh, sai gobe to your bag(s). You simply have to wait till you possess your possession(s). So, what do you do as you wait? You keep calm. Yes o, you gatz to ‘camdan’ because even if you f’orí d’ólè, k’ésè s’ókè, your bag(s) won’t jump queue. If you like, climb Kilimanjaro and fall headlong, you’re just “doing yourself” because you’re not in control of what happens behind the scene.
“Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?” Matthew 6:27 (NKJV)
“And which of you by being anxious can add one cubit unto the measure of his life?” Matthew 6:27 (ASV)
“Has anyone by fussing in front of the mirror ever gotten taller by so much as an inch?” Matthew 6:27 (MSG)
Worry/anxiety won’t bring your desire; you’ll only stress out. Now, that ain’t good for your spirit, soul, and body, so be calming down, you hia?
Worry less, limit stress. Stay calm, God is in control.
