Going The Extra Mile
Marcus Ekure, thanks for bringing this customer, my dear younger Brother Don.
Lessons of My Life
Failure is an instance; success is a distance.
In every marathon, there is usually a big crowd at the beginning, but as the race goes on with time, nobody enforces social distancing; it happens naturally. The distancing is based on preparations, effort, stamina, passion, and focus on the prize ahead.
Peter and the other disciples fell asleep at the Garden of Gethsemane, but Jesus went a little bit further and prayed. For the prize set ahead for Him, He pressed on in prayer until He sweated blood.
Sweating blood is the outcome of one of the most extreme states of dehydration, heat, massive release of adrenaline, noradrenaline, and cortisol. The endothelial lining of the capillaries under His sweat glands ruptured. It is called hematidrosis. Jesus went the extra mile to Calvary.
Sometimes, the groaning and agony come before the glory.
This customer called for dressed chicken. Within an hour, his dressed chicken was ready at a little extra cost. Remember the ones I sent to Osubi before 5 a.m. in my previous post.
The difference is that we use very clean hot water and your chicken is completely clean and hygienic.
One of the things the pandemic of the corona virus must teach the church is that not all things can be achieved by prophetic declarations.
A lot of our declarations are/were mere decorations.
We must face reality after this lock-down.
God bless you all.
