The 3rd of January 2013, It was the first day of resumption. And if you attended Covenant University, you know this is the fastest you’ll ever get the internet all through the semester, and do you know what comes with free and super-fast internet? After you’ve downloaded all the movies and updated every updateable? You get bored. That’s the beginning of the story of Lifegiva.
I studied Hebrews 2 & 3 the day before and made a note on a folded white A4 paper, so while in my room, fast internet and nothing much to do, I thought to myself, what will happen to all these notes and jottings from studying? What will happen to my journals? I know I can’t carry them from place to place forever, and books get bulky. So I thought, why not save them online, the only way I’ll lose that will be a case of internet apocalypse. That was the beginning of lifegiva.
Lifegiva wasn’t a result of vision or audible voice- nothing is wrong with those. Lifegiva wasn’t a result of a strategic session, nothing is wrong with this either.
On the 3rd of January 2013, all I was doing was creating a place where I can store my thoughts for future reference and posterity sake. And fast forward to 7 years, Lifegiva as a blog has been read in all the continents of the world. It has produced an online radio that ran for two years, a merchandise line that people love, a media consulting firm and much more, with teary testimonies.
Not every great vision starts with a bang. Not every great vision looks like a million-dollar buck at the start. Many are accidentally stumbled upon.
So, don’t despise the little or seemingly insignificant things in your life. Don’t make light of the little or insignificant connections or friendships in your life. Great things start somewhere.
If you look down on the baby born to Mary because he was born in a manger, you would have missed on the singular most important human to have ever walked the face of the earth.
Wondering how I knew Lifegiva was worth the commitment and persistence? n Or how to spot potential in a crowd of opportunities (cos you can’t do everything)? That will be in another newsletter.
Thank you so much for reading. I didn’t plan for it to be this long.
