All I Can Say Is THANK YOU JESUS!!!
I’m acknowledging You for who You
have been in my life. You have shown
Yourself strong and mighty in my life.
You have given me my heart’s desire
and you have answered my prayers.
I started Law School in
2012 determined yet scared because
of the stories I had been swamped
with, stories of brilliant people failing
the exams and retaking it 4 times. I
was told that because I was not
familiar with the system, I should aim
not to excel but to merely pass. But I
dared to dream because You oh Lord
God reminded me that Your thoughts
towards me are thoughts of good and
not of evil to give me my hopes and
dreams and bring me to an expected
end. You said to me, ‘Temiloluwa, fear
not. Only believe’.
Lord, I remember all that period in Bar
1, how you helped me. Thank You
Jesus. Lord You saw me through and
brought the Adeniyis into my life.
Father, please bless them immensely
for my sake. They are simply
AMAZING! I was a part of the family
and together myself and all my newly
discovered sisters worked hard and
prayed hard everyday and every
night. God, I thank You because none
of us was found wanting.
I remember the tears when I just
wasn’t getting the whole Capital
Markets system. I remember my
frustration when I was just not
calculating the scale of fees properly.
At first, mortgages, as a topic, was a
blur. God, I did not know how I would
draft a statement of claim, statement
of defence, affidavit and written
address in such a short period. I
certainly had no clue that to perfect
charges in Corporate law was not as
simple as Governor’s consent,
stamping and registration. Getting my
sections right for Criminal Procedure
Code, Criminal Procedure Act and
Administration of Criminal Justice Law
was sometimes a challenge.
Memorising the procedure for
Matrimonial Causes drove me to chant
in my dreams.
But on the day of each exam, I AM
THAT IS I AM came through. You gave
me wisdom and knowledge and
understanding and for these, I praise
As my scripts were being collated, not
one got missing. My scores were not
wrongly calculated. I did not write a
wrong number on my script. Father,
so many many things could have gone
wrong. But for You oh God!
At 2:30 am on the 1st of November, I
was awoken by Adanna. ‘Temi, results
are out’ was the message all over my
BB. With anxiety, I went to the
Nigerian Law School website and
clicked on the Results tab, selected
2013 Bar Finals Result. I typed my
Examination number and then it said
‘Loading Result’. My heart was
pounding. My fingers were shaking. I
broke out in a cold sweat. 4 seconds
felt like 4 hours. But when I saw the
grade, Jesus, You had me rolling on
my floor in joy. THANK YOU JESUS! I
cannot stop praising You dear God.
That same day Lord, as if the blessing
was not enough, YOU GAVE ME A JOB in
the best law firm in Nigeria! Jesus,
when You do Your thing, we earthlings
just marvel. Thank You God!
I am thankful Lord. I do not like
putting myself out there. But because
I mentioned Your name on this blog,
asking You to help me with Law
School and most recently, with a job, I
cannot but let the world know that we
serve a prayer answering God who
has done what I asked of Him. I
honestly could not have asked for
better. I am where every degree I
have is recognized and not made to
seem irrelevant. I am where my NYSC
of 2011 is recognized. God, You really
do order people’s steps. All I can say
is THANK YOU JESUS!!!
Thank You for amazing people around
me, amazing friends and my amazing
family. Thank You Jesus! I trust You
for grace to excel at work and for
wisdom to carry myself with grace
and honour and diligence.
May my life continually show forth
your praise and most importantly,
may I make Heaven and take many
many people along with me. Amen.
