“…But year after year, her rival wife taunted her cruelly and made fun of her, provoking her, rubbing it in and never letting her forget that God had not given her children. Hannah was miserable. She wept and would not eat everytime….”1 Sam 1; 6,7 (E’s mix version)
I love a hater.
And for some reason, I seem to have quite a few of them per time. Imagine!!! Sweet amazing E’. Let’s call them Peninnah. You may wanna read the whole of that bible chapter for the full gist if you don’t know what I am talking about.
Recall the post I did on B.A.B.A.R.A here?
I mentioned a certain someborry who was trusting God for the fruit of the womb and then got a mail from someone who said that she could not have kids and stuff because she was a wicked woman who was controlling her husband and eating her husband’s money. It hurt deeeeeep as you can imagine.
But wait ooo, is eating your husband’s money a sin? kai, We sinners go plenty ooo. Loool
Now that our miracle baby is almost here, we can laugh at that mail. But then, you can imagine that it could NOT have been funny when it came. No it couldn’t. That was so HEARTLESS, WICKED, COLD-BLOODED, UNFEELING, CALLOUS, DEVILISH, (more adjectives please)
But wait ooo, don’t we all need a Peninnah in our lives? Especially when there is a ‘comma’ somewhere so that we don’t get too comfy…
Peninnah pushes us to or knees in prayers.
And then when the ‘Samuel’ comes, Peninnah’s yabis is just what makes the testimony very interesting. Yummy much.
I recall failing out of Pharmacy school then (I really should tell this story here already), there were Peninnah’s in their THOUSANDS. I was Miss Popularity herself.
The whole University of Ibadan knew Eziaha Ajaero and they also KNEW that she had FAILED. My friends, close and distant and beefers said all sorts of CRAP- ‘
All her gragra will end, it is good for her..’ A lot of it hurt but I was too relieved to cry. But it hurt all the same, especially because I didn’t deserve to fail.
Thank God for the Haters. Changing academic discipline to my DESIRED and PERFECT Major (no longer living my Parent’s pharmacy dream for me) and graduating TOP OF MY CLASS certainly had something to do with the Peninnahs who didn’t stop taunting… And all the career testimonies I have today? Thank you Peninnahs ooo. Kisskiss..
I will share this story in FULL someday, but this is NOT about me darling. . It is about DCC’s own Gift who is hosting the IMELA concert with her
big tummy nice lovely gown… Momma, you will wear a gown, I already know
This testimony is too sweet. You don’t wanna miss it ooo. I think she will bring some of those cakes and share to us there.
By the way, please who knows any of Peninnah’s bomboys? Nobody!!! No book was dedicated to them in the bible. But Hannah’s Samuel gets two whole books, 1st and 2nd Samuel for good measure. By the way, I suspect that all those weak bomboys that cannot be REAL men and run their home came from Peninah’s lineage like the bomboy we discussed here.
Whatever the issue is, no matter the number of Peninnahs’, our God remains faithful. And your Samuel too is sure, no matter what your own ‘Samuel’ is.
You too will testify…
