“But you remember,” Chiamaka said. “There was a time you asked Bunmi to sign for you.”
I tried to form words that will exonorate me but I kept stuttering…
Chiamaka had reminded me of the one time I’d asked Bunmi to sign for me. Under normal circumstance, this shouldn’t be a big deal save for the fact that I don’t sign for others… by the way, this was last semester; last year.
I found myself trying to explain and of course, I was agitated but it wasn’t until later I realized there was no point explaining.
I made one mistake but the most important thing is that I’ve moved on and that I’d try to be better. People will try to hold you down with accusations, the devil too, but it’s up to you to keep your head up and decide to be better. You have to realize that God has forgiven you and His grace is sufficient to help you be better. This is very necessary.
It’s not about trying to explain to others or trying to make them see from your point of view. I’m not saying you shouldn’t care, sometimes, people’s opinions can help you be better. But that shouldn’t be your main focus, God’s opinion should be.
For we don’t have a high priest who can’t be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but one who has been in all points tempted like we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore draw near with boldness to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy, and may find grace for help in time of need.” – Hebrews 4:15-16
