♫ You move mountains. You cause walls to fall
With your power. You perform miracles
There is nothing that’s impossible
And I’m standing here. Only because you made a way
Don’t know how but you did it [x4]
Don’t know why but I’m grateful [x4]
Don’t know how but I’m grateful
And I’m standing here. Only because you made ♫
Light in the darkness
That is who you are ♫
♫ Onise Iyanu. You’re the God of awesome wonders.
I’ve tasted of Your power.
Onise Iyanu. You have shown me so much mercies,
Much more than I deserve
The words You speak turns things around
Your outstretched arm
Has lifted me
You took away the chains and colts
That held me bound ♫
I literally feel like screaming down the ceilings. Kai! This God is too good oooooooo!!! Please help me whisper scream that to your neighbour. This God is just too GOOD, REAL and FAITHFUL!!!
Okay, let me explain why I am this excited.
Today, SFF – The Book, “SINGLE, FRUITFUL, FULFILLED – Living a whole and productive life before “I Do”” officially goes live! Like we are on Okadabooks already and moving on to other ebook apps before the end of the week. But that’s not the testimony.
The testimony is that as of 1st of July, I only had 5 chapters of this 16-chapter book ready. Even my publisher told me to post-pone the book launch to avoid too much rush and inability to meet up. But I knew what I heard from God as we stepped into July and I was determined to do it afraid, against all odds, and there were so many odds.
I won’t bore you with the odds, but I will tell you the awesome things that happened.
Between the 1st of July and the 15th of July, I was able to complete the remaining 9 chapters of my book. Something I haven’t been able to do in the past 3 months. I started writing my manuscript in April that is, after trying to start several times since January. In March, I wrote about 4 different “Table of contents” for the book. But none of them made sense.
In April, I was able to write the introduction and a few other pages. In June when I released the first two chapters for free download, they were roughly all I had. The rest were still in bits here and there, mostly in my head.
But as we were stepping into July, God told me, “Trust me and everything will fall in place” and I just surrendered. In April, while I was praying for Grace to birth this book He has placed in my heart, God said, “Trust me wholeheartedly and everything will play out well”. I believed Him and started taking the necessary steps of faith. But as July approached, I started having some doubts due to so many pending things; even the manuscript wasn’t ready.
Today, just like wind, all of God’s promises concerning the birthing of this book has become reality!
I finished writing my manuscript on the 15th of July which is barely two weeks ago. Sent to my editors on the 17th of July. In spite of the really short time/notice, they did a thorough job on my manuscript and I had it back by the following week (which is actually last week).
By Saturday/Sunday (29/30th of July), all those who pre-ordered for the SFF eBook received their pre-ordered copies. Same Saturday, I uploaded the eBook on Okadabooks and set the price at N0.00 and then left to do my house chores. By the time I finished my house chores and came back to put some finishing touches, I saw that this book already had 11 downloads. That means people have eagerly been waiting for it to appear in the stores.
Haha, this God!!!
As of 22nd July when I received the cost for printing – N350, 000, from my printer, I had only N24, 900 in my account for this book.
By yesterday morning, every kobo required for the book printing and other necessary expenses – Graphics design, ISBN, Printing, etc., has been paid in FULL.
Just like that. God sent provisions from the East, from the West, from the North, from the South, from all-over, beyond my imaginations!!!
One more thing God told me was to “keep my eyes off men”. Yes, He would use (wo)men to support this project. But I shouldn’t have my eyes or heart fixed on anyone except Him. Thank God He warned me early ‘cause I would have been disappointed. I mean, there were people I was expecting to carry my social media campaigns on their heads – put it out there on their blogs and social media handles and all. But it didn’t happen that way. God Himself took over the Social media campaigns and used people I barely even know, to champion the social media blasts.
The love, support and encouragement has been overwhelming. I can’t tell it all. I just can’t, even if I tried. God came through for me at every point of this book project just as He promised.
Thank you all for your prayers, God answered! I’m excited for the great and mighty things God is set to do in our generation and in the generations to come, through this book.
More importantly, I am grateful to God for stretching my Faith and deepening my walk/intimacy with Him through this book. I pray it does same for you.
This book has also taught me lots of lessons about so many things. I hope to share them with you soon, to help you in your own projects.
