Scientists says that on the day of copulation about 14 million of spermatozoa are released but somehow only one get access to the egg released from the ovaries for fertilization to take place. That was your first victory, you didn’t have your tail torn to affect the process, which means others even have their tail off which impeded their ability to swim, to even think of beating others to fertilize.
You were destined to reach thus far, because to survive that race for the egg with other billions is no mean feat to achieve.
Have you ever asked yourself what is the value of mosquito for it to even be a living insect? What about worm, housefly etc. Hope you know that the worm has no eyes yet it has space in creation. The worm has brain, mouth, esophagus, gizzard, intestine etc., to take nutrients to the plants roots. That is for the worm, how much more you who survived the race for fertilization?
Many fetuses don’t survive even the entire process, many factors causes them to be aborted purposefully or accidentally. As if that isn’t enough some don’t survive even the period of delivery due to many complications. After this safe sail, there comes the 6 killer disease and many other factors you have no control over but still you overcame, sometimes against the background that you didn’t have very nutritional food to facilitate a healthy growing.
Today you have come this far though not as you will wish for but if you were not aborted throughout the entire journey then your dreams will not be shattered. You are fearfully and wonderfully made with a purpose and embedded with a gift(s) for the development of humanity. All the challenges you are going through are not because you are a bad person, even in the case of bad choices there is still hope for tomorrow. You will never be the last to fail an exam, re-sit and trailed papers are the university. Oh not that pregnancy or having to have had a child during schooling, you are not the first or last, losing parents or loved ones, some never knew what it takes to have the experience to be raised by parents because they were raised in foster homes.
The people you admire and see them as role models just didn’t come to their present statuses, they believed that beyond the challenges lies their dreams. There is no use for an unsharpened pencil, it goes through sharpening process to exhibit what it can be used for, it breaks along the way but it goes through the process again and again and again to keep showcasing its value and purpose.
The challenges you face today are like the blade or sharpener, it isn’t a pleasant experience but don’t focus on the that but rather the best you become after all storms.
Do you know some have money that can buy them many things yet they are fed through tubes, yet you go hungry for days or eat crumbs with no aid? Someone pays for the air they breathe but you have it for free. Count the value of what you have without paying for and in that state of gratitude and hope, your dreams resonate with good tidings. Your breakthrough is just at the corner, if you were not aborted then your dreams will not be shattered.
