I know something
The little I know
I will never forget...
That poem is often recited by the nursery school pupils beside my house in Lagos. Though very childish, it's words are weighty to me and I will tell you why.
For the last 14 months I've lived in relative peace, comfort and security and because of this, I've crossed things such as 'I hope there will be electricity this night' and 'I hope there won't be so much traffic on my way home tonight' off my Hope list. This combined with my analytical thinking mind and rise in global religious chaos has made me think that faith and trust in God may be relative to environment. This has also made me question religion and Christianity. In my questioning, I've realised that I know little. For instance I know that WITHOUT GOD, I AM NOTHING! NOT EVEN THE TINIEST SPECK OF SAW DUST!! I also know that THIS ALMIGHTY GOD HAS AN UNFAILING, IMMEASURABLE, UNDYING and IMMENSE LOVE FOR ME. Another thing I know is this HIS WORDS ALWAYS COME TO PASS AND HIS PLANS FOR ME ARE UNIMAGINABLE (1 Corinthians 2:9). This little I know, I will never forget.
