Introducing the Close Shaves series + part 1 and 2

So I have been thinking of doing this series since, but due to one or two reasons, and mainly procrastination, I am just getting to it.

Sometime ago, it dawned on me that it’s been a long time that I should have died, or best case, become an invalid. But one way or the other, God keeps saving me. You would not believe the weirdest things I have survived, which is what convinces me that I am destined for something great in this world. I believe that there’s a problem I am created to solve, and I have not even begun to smell the great things in stock for me. This is also one reason I am not willing to leave Nigeria. I am here to make a difference, and not just be another statistic.

So back to the topic, I have had close shaves with death, but by the grace of God, I have survived them all, and I will be featuring the ones I can remember in the next couple of weeks. It won’t be as long as the Guess the Blogger series, as it is just about 5 weeks, if you include today.

I have featured two of them on this blog before, but feel free to read again if you are interested.

Part 1. This is when I was driving a car on fire, and I was not even aware. Any moment, the car could have exploded, with me still driving, but God saved me. My mum told me that at the time the stuff happened, she saw s vision (or dream, I can’t remember) of someone on fire, but she never knew it was me. Read the full story here.

Part 2 . This is when I was caught in a metal box (aka a dead car) on third mainland bridge, in the middle of the night, at the area where bad things happen to people who have the misfortune of being stuck. But somehow, God preserved my life (and the metal box), till morning, when I was “rescued”. Well, my mum did not see vision about this one. Till today, she doesn’t even know about it. Here’s hoping she doesn’t read this post. Read the full story here.

Next week, I will be starting from part 3.

I’m sure by the time I am done, you will thank God for my life.

P.S: I have an issue with my blog posts. After I put it up, it doesn't appear on people's dashboards and blogrolls till the next day. It started out as a 5-hour delay, and has now increased to 24-hour delay. Has anyone had this issue? Who knows how I can solve it?
