What’s on your Wish list?

Dare wanted just one thing.

To leave Nigeria.

To leave this ruined country (in his exact words)

He was done with college but what was the need? His certificate was as good as useless because there were no jobs in the country.

He booked sessions with several Agency’s for visa requirements.
Wrote all the said necessary exams to boost his success rate.

Two years later Dare was broke, all his savings went to failed attempts at securing a permanent visa. Yet, he still wanted to leave the country. That was his only wish.

Nene is such a sweet girl

A caring being with a kind soul

Who doesn’t have any wish…funny right?

Her wish are only fragments of her mothers wish.

What her mom wants is what she wants.

She doesn’t allow herself dream

Her mom does all the dreaming for her.

Her mom’s dreams are hers. Her moms wishes are hers too.

For her what she wants doesn’t matter only what her mom wants for her.

Meet Grace.

Grace is such a wild one

Amazingly bold and full of energy

Who has a whole lot of dreams and wishes.

Grace wants to make money

Grace doesn’t want to get married before thrity to avoid distractions.

She wants to build a world of her own. Freedom to do whatever she wants.

While Dare, Nene and Grace’s wishes are different. They still have them wishes. And now you know their wishlist

So what are you thinking?
That something is missing?

No. I don’t think so

That those wishes won’t come true? Who told you so? They may all come true, if not all, some.

Then what point I’m I trying to make? You may ask.

Chill. I’ll tell you…

You have a wish list like Dare, Nene and Grace. Some are wilder and bigger than others and some if not all may come true while some would never play out the way you want them to.


Because you’re only focused on what you have wished and prayed for and overlooking something else.

Gods Wish.

Is your wish list in line with Gods wish list?

Are you hell bent on pursuing that which you’ve decided to pursue without consulting from God first, to know if it is his will?

Remember your dreams and wishes may be specific, mighty and great but it isn’t perfect and can never be if God isn’t involved.

It is only Gods will that is good, pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2

So allow him in and let him redirect your path to his perfect will for you, so you don’t end up wasting your time pursuing dreams that weren’t yours in the first place.

To avoid delays, waste and failure go back to your goals and check gain if it has Gods approval.

You’ll know when its Gods will. His word says;
“And these signs shall follow them that believe…”
Mark 16:17


“However when He, the Spirit of Truth, is come, He will guide you into all truth; for He shall not speak from Himself, but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak; and He will show you things to come”
John 16:13

Just pay attention. And follow his directions

So what’s on your wish list?

What are your thoughts after reading this? What have you learned from Dare, Nene and Grace?
