There is a God in heaven  

Posted by Tolulope Akanni

I was in the waiting room yday n I'm glad to announce to u that I did not wait for nothing. GOD did it!!!!

I'm so grateful to the heavens, but hw did it all start?

Monday: I went for the 1st stage of the 2day screening for a job wit Skye (a 5wks prog aimed at publishing a youth mag for Skye Bank)
1st thing was the traditional "Tell us ur name-tell us about urself" interview, and after which we started the real deal, writing.
14 applicants, 10 to be picked
Monday's main task was to pick out 5 random words out of a basket filled with diff words, and use ur 5words 2 write an article, half a page making sure that ur 5words r swallowed up in the article.

I got the words "intervention, disconfiguration, abundance, imminent, odious" And as u wld xpect, I did sumtin on naija.

Conclusion is, I thot wat I did was mad.. bt wen I heard others, I cld conclude it was crap.


Tuesday followed d same protocol(bt we had increased in numbers to 10) but it was one word this time arnd n I did sumtin on FOOD.

We left there with the instruction that only the "needed" will be called back n dont come again if u dnt get any sms 4rm us.

Wednesday: SMS no show!!!!
Some deep prayer sessions, declaration of rhema, speaking in tongues, no SMS, no call!!
But I was persistent.
I stil had a fun day on wednesday; BIG UPs 2 Ehi 4 d sweet ride n to all of those we were able 2 hang out wit - Asha, Hauwa, Chidinma, Busola, Soko.. wednesday made sense.

Thursday: Prayers were stil on n my hopes were stil very high that my God of "suddenly" can still do it.
U wont blv d call came when I left my phone in my bag... but since dat tuesday I'v bin callin back anytime I see "missed calls" oh.. cos u neva can tel uno. lol
The Boss (Uncle Yinka) called n asked me 2 come around 4 2more days of probation.. and this time it was 5 of us n he needed 2!
I knew God had done it already.

I got there and as the tradition is: u write n read 2 everyone's hearing and they all criticise.
He brought out the article I wrote on tuesday n he was analysing it. But every1 else in d room loved the article n u wont blv we were arguing/discussing/analysing my article 4 the next 30mins!! (against the traditional 5-10mins), and after they all reached d conclusion that this article made sense.

He said "Tolu, if ur article can raise this much argument then ure automatically in!!!!!"

The last time I checked, I saw a God in heaven.

Are you seeing him right now?????
