TB Joshua Biography – 'Everything Big Starts Little'

Many people have been sending requests to know about the early life of God’s servant, Prophet T.B. Joshua. Here is a touching biographical account of the prophet, in his own words, as published in one of The SCOAN’s magazines, ‘Faith Cometh’…

In our spiritual walk with the Lord, we have good times and hard times. When the going is good, we say we are in good times. When the going is tough, we say we are experiencing hard times. Remember, life itself is a mission. While we are on the go, we need to stop between steps, to re-focus on the Word and the Will of God. While we are on the go, I mean, while we are on the mission, we need to sometimes stop at intervals to assess our progress and prepare ourselves for the challenges ahead. Certain challenges on our way usually make us stop awhile – I mean, for a moment. When you stop awhile, you are not down. What are these challenges? They could come in the form of sickness, failure, setback, imprisonment, poverty. For instance, if I receive a sack letter from my very lucrative job, there is a natural tendency for me to cry and lament, if I do not view the situation from the maturity that comes from faith. It takes faith to realise that the situation is a mere stopping interval – a short break between two events.

I do not need to go very far to cite or give an example of what I am saying because my experience in life is enough to illustrate this philosophy or principle of life. As we said earlier, many things could cause one to stop between steps. I could still remember vividly when I sat for and passed the entrance examination into the Nigerian Defence Academy, Kaduna.

I was invited for the interview and I had to board the train from Lagos to Kaduna. Behold, on our journey the train developed some serious faults that kept us in the bush in Jebba for six horrible days with little or no provision. Remember, I was going for an interview that was billed to hold the following day. I was on the railway line in Jebba while the interview was going on in Kaduna and there was nothing I could do to help the situation as I lacked the means to arrange for an alternative way of transporting myself to the venue of the interview, so I missed the whole thing.

TB Joshua Biography

This was how the ambition to enlist into the military was aborted by what was obviously an act of fate. Who knows what would have happened if I had successfully attended that interview. I actually felt very bitter I had missed another chance of making it in life.

With a very heavy heart I went to the village to complain to my mother of how so many opportunities had slipped by. Little would I have reasoned that it was one of those stops between steps in my spiritual walk with God until my mother did her best to calm me down, saying: “My son, do not mind the seeming appearance of things as of today. If I am ever confident of any child, you are that child. Do not be afraid of what the future holds for you, because I know if anyone is destined to fail, you are not the one. So, be patient and you would see what God would do in your life. I am so sure of your future breakthrough, considering the strength of the predictions and prophecies about you even before you were born. I cannot forget so easily what I experienced when I was pregnant with you, and I know God cannot lie. My son, whatever you may be going through today, just take it as a temporary setback, meant to prepare you for the challenges ahead. Don’t forget your name is “Temitope” and, by the grace of God, the whole world shall have the cause to thank God for your sake.”

After this encounter with my mother, I began to look at whatever came my way with a more mature mind whose focus was on God alone. I mean, the maturity that comes from faith in the finished works of our Lord Jesus Christ. My case was already settled in Heaven. Here I am today in your midst; I can boast of what God is doing for us. Hallelujah! You are all witnesses.

In my spiritual walk with God I have experienced both good and hard times. Who knows what would have happened if those temporary stops did not come at intervals. Consider how my education suffered epileptic fits; today I am in school, the next day I am out. Remember, when God is executing His plan in our lives, He also designs and arranges events which continue to unfold until His purpose is revealed. The ups and downs in my education were part of the events that revealed the purpose of God in my life. Remember, the man who is poor is not the man that has no money, but one without a dream. They are suffering that have no dream. They are poor that have no dream.

Before I knew it, I had gone around six different colleges in less than one year. I enrolled for the examinations of JAMB (Joint Admission and Matriculation Board) four times and on each occasion it was either I forgot my acknowledgement card and other necessary documents or there was an accident on the way to the exam venues. People who saw what was happening to me simply attributed my predicament to either sin or non-seriousness on my part. But those with the maturity that comes from faith, like my mother, saw it as mere stopping intervals or natural stops in my spiritual walk with God.

In James 4:7, we are told to submit ourselves to God and resist the devil. If we examine carefully our attitudes toward certain situations, we would see how much we willingly submit ourselves to the devil each time we view things with the maturity that comes from the experience rather than of faith. The maturity that comes from experience is based on what is seen, what is heard and what circumstances look like. When your maturity is derived from circumstantial factors other than faith, your level of maturity would continue to fluctuate rather than being stable. This is why I am enabled to maintain a balance and stable approach to the challenges that come my way every day. I am not moved by what people say or do concerning my relationship with God. I submit myself to His direct will which is good and perfect with no evil in it. Sometimes, God uses foolish things to strengthen our desire for Him.

In Luke 22:32, Jesus said to Peter, “I pray that your faith would not fail”. This means, all men make mistakes but people of God get back up. Certainly we would fall, but with Jesus supporting our position, we would soon get back up.

  • Nadine Huguette Annimbom

    I don’t need to know about Prophet TB Joshua’s Biography, I believe that he is the Man of God. He is God’s Messenger. He has accepted God’s assignment with humility. That’s all.
    This history shows us that we should accept the plan of God in our lives with humility and patience, for everything big starts little indeed! Lord, let your will be done in my life.

  • faith

    I am currently going through some marital challenges and considering divorce as i have not been happy for a long time and it is impacting on a lot of areas in my life(the man i married is not the man i currently live with even in spiritual matters). I have asked god why He allowed it to happen after i tried my best to live a good life as His young person. What has been hurting is the fact that i come from a family where most of my cousins are not saved and they had kids out of wedlock (My mother’s generation were either not married or divorced)but i kept myself until marriage and now i will appear to be like them because i will be a single mother just like them because i made a mistake of not listening to God properly before marriage to affirm if this what was right for me.

    When i read the account of the man of god i was encouraged to think that everything in our life happens for the glory of our God, failures included. Every situation is there to direct our destiny and more importantly we need to trust God because He is all knowing and that our lives are in His hands. That we should not make conclusions based on situations but rather we should trust Him because only He knows what He has predestined.
    I am no longer going to ask God Why is this happening to me, but i am going to trust him because the matter is in His hands.

    Thanks for the encouragement. May God continue to increase you so that you may impact more lives and many other people can see that it is not circumstances that determines destiny but God Himself determines our destiny and He can use what people consider to worthless for His own God because then we will know that it was not our doing but that it is God.

    TO GOD BE THE GLORY I AM CONFIDENT THAT IF GOD COULD DO IT FOR THE MAN OF GOD, HE WILL SURELY DO IT IN MY LIFE.

    • Jesus answered and said, Verily, verily I say unto you, unless one is born again he can not enter the kingdom of God. That is, one has to be born of water and the Holy Spirit, meaning one can not have a short cut to salvation. Just as you can not have a short-cut to the solution of your marriage. You just need the word of God, read it and understand what it says concerning marriage. Let no one cheat you, get it from the bible, the source.

      Apart from that, there is one mouth piece of God in this world (generation) as at now. This man is T.B Joshua, the Prophet, he has the word of God in him. What he says, is thus says the Lord.

      If you can not understand the bible, seek advice from Prophet T.B Joshua, he is the right man. There are so many men of God and not everyone is a man of God.

      My sister, don’t even think of quiting your marriage but rather be strong in the Lord, He will see you through just as he has promised in the holy scriptures.

      What I have learnt in life, is that no matter the situation at hand, is only mearnt to stop you for a while, to prepare you for a new level in life. Your husband might be difficult today, but tomorrow by the grace of God, he will come kneeling before you. so, dont quit. Things might appear to be going contrally to our expections but we should’nt forget to re-examine our lives by the word of God. Does his word abide in us or do we abide in it. Thank the man of God for the words of wisdom, it really means alot to me personally.

      The man of God, Tb Joshua is a real life model in my life. It takes the grace of God, in whatever we do in life. Even what the devil is doing is all abundant grace, if anything, he would have destrolled the devil from the moment he transgressed. But our God is So knowing and loving. In short, God is in control.

      God bless you, in Jesus Christ name.

  • harazi harrison

    why is it so difficult to get a reply either by phone or Email if you want to get invited to the synagogue for prayer and especially when you are sick and looking forward to seeing the man of God.
    please in the name of Jesus we are dying to prayed for .Kindly allow free passage to your church when it comes to healing.

  • Rose

    Like what Prophet TB Joshua’s mum prophecied “by the grace of God, the whole world shall have the cause to thank God for your sake.” Its hapening because I thank God for such a blessing in our lives and I know the whole world is thanking God for the man of God. May our good Lord continue to bless him.

  • ROY WINILE MOYO

    I encouraged knowing that when I stumble there are those who know what it feels like to encounter mountain after mountain on this highway of faith walking.
    I feel strong knowing that, before me are spiritual giants who know the way around spiritual roadblocks.
    I am humbled and mesmerised by the maturity and intelligence in faith application, execution, dissemination by someone who could have just folded up and not hearkened to the calling.
    Now I know that when times seem to be hard there is a lesson for me in my eperience.
    Now I know that when I am rejected on earth a way is being prepared for me from on above.
    God is nearer to me than my closest brother and sister.
    I shall fear no evil, I shall hear no evil, I shall not focus on any evil and its manifestations as I TRAVERSE on the narrow path that leads to the ALL MIGHTY.

    Life is a journey;sometimes disappointment is a blessing. Prophet T B Joshua’s endeaiour in life was to set him aside for a purpose.His lovely mother who has been experiencing the hard times with him,was always there for him,encouraged,support,love him and give him hope.She new that prophet T B Joshua was not like any other of her children and has a dream for him,she for saw brigther future for him.I hope she is still alive to enjoy the fruit of her labour.She did well with her faith in God almighty.God inspired her with the utterances she uttered when things were difficult;”If somebody will not make it,not you,the world will hear of you”etc.Indeed the whole world is really hearing of prophet T B Joshua.This should apply to all parents.They have to trust in God and not condemn their children,or relatives.God’s time is the best.Oh God let your will be done in your servant’s life in Jesus mighty name.Amen

  • Prophet T B Joshua’s biography is really encouraging. Our time doesn’t matter. Always God’s time is the best. May God richly bless you.

  • sonia

    I thank God for the life of his servant Prophet TB Josua who went through hard times in his early life. I learnt that things may not go well but one must hold his faith unto God and not depart from his ways. God’s time is the best time as his servant Prophet TB Josua always says.

  • Simon Njelemba

    First and foremost I would like to thank God for bring prophet T B Joshua in our generation, a man of faith ,humble, a father and an encouragement to many of us.

    From the early life of prophet T B Joshua I have learned that whatever we will try to do as long as it is not in the will of God for our life, we will fail and face frustrations. We may be wondering why things are not what we expect them to be.
    It is important that we consult highly anointed men of God such as Prophet T B Joshua for direction in line with the will of God for our life. Once we know where God wants us to be , that in itself will help us to stand the storms of life because we already know that they shall pass as they are temporal because we know where we are going.

    We should therefore not be ruled by our situations but remain focused on the will of God for our lives.

    It’s true God’s time is the best.

    May our good Lord continue to bless the Man of God, prophet T B Joshua.

And that maybe the things that are happening to me that i think is delaying my future is for my own good and the future of others too is involved. so i shouldn’t be eager getting to the top without Jehovah God. And more grace to TB’s mother for she gave him more hope and prayed for him. Am 32 now and i have lots my mother when i was 26, i which she could be alive to see how am trying hard to keep to the right path, if she was alive i know things would have been more easier for me.

    God Himself knows us all. Its only up to us to know him and submit to him fully. I agree that what ever happen to you, God himself says something toyou, either bad or good. The good is to understand his language better.

    In most cases when you pray for blessings and you have that sin, He himself will remind you of it to setlle it and dont ignore it. This is ,Man of God, I realy aprreciate God to be using you to demonstrate His power, love, grace etc .
    God bless you richly

  • Emily Gases

    be blessed saints of SCOAN, i have named my baby boy, after Pastor TB Joshua. his name is Joshua Jordan, because i watched Emmanuel TV, while pregnant. I am not married, born again, but i sinned and got this boy, but i thought this baby in my tummy should serve God like Pastor, and the word in Joshua in the bible, Me and my house, will serve the Lord, has also contribute to this name.

    my baby Joshua, is 7 months old, and he is already a blessing. he clap hands, and fold like he is praying and he is kind of a reserved baby, sometimes he will scream/shout, then we say he is giving the shout of victory.

    Pastor’s life is an encouragement, for me and my house. currently, i have financial set backs and this words in Pastor’s biography is again an encouragement, that i should not look at experience in the past and look with faith to circumstances. God rebuke me last week to have faith, stop be like Thomas and this words of Pastor is also a confirmation that i should just trust God and have faith in his provision.

    stay bless my brothers and sisters in Christ, we will meet in the New Jerusalem, if we cant meet now.

    This Biographical Account of Prophet T B Joshua is the true answer to my life and I guess the rest of the people. When I reflect what I have gone through, I say yes to this Biogrpahical because what it says depicts whatI have gone through and what most of the people go through in their life time. Now that this biographical Account has enlightened us its high time we changed our minds from focusing on our physical nature but on God. We need true faith of God to guide us always. I wish to thank Prophet T B Joshua’s mother for having that heart which feared and trusted God. Her belief in God made her to give a good advise to her son. Had it not been for her faith, she was also going to focus on physical nature and hence, worsening the situation. Her act has taught me something good I should do also as a parent. I hope many who have read this article God has given them wisdom to understand it and act. I thank you most sincerely people of Synagogue for this message and God bless you all.

  • My faith is being lifted up by this article. Thank you Prophet TBJ.

  • Apostle Kasapu

    Of a truth you speak, Man of God. Even when the very brethren you faithful labour with, decide to excommunicate or talk evil of you, takes the “Divine Focus” on Jesus to realise that our destiny is beyond the ordinary, average and common person. We almost always forget the very mystery and essence of salvation for every soul in existence in such pandemonium. …Thank you Yahweh for your life and love you too!

  • Modesta Ushe

    I thank God Almighty for his visitation upon the life of Prophet T.B Joshua, I have learnt that indeed God pre-destined us before we were born, all we need to do is believe and surrender everything unto him knowing that he will never leave us nor forsake us – God Bless

  • Christelle

    thank you Prophet for sharing this with us. it is really touching to read such thing. i have learned a lot through this experience of your. it makes me actually realise that nothing hapens for nothing as a child of God. i noww know that what ever happen in my life i must hold on to God. i will also teach my people or whoever i can teach about this.
    May the Lord continue to bless and use you for the good purpuse of his Kingdom in Jesus name

  • Patrick Pillias

    God choose the ordinary men to do the extra ordinary things. It is not our status which matters in God’s eyes but the mission to be accomplished with these mere human bodies. As Apostle Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 10 vs 3-5 that we are mere man, but we do not use fleshly weapons in pulling down strongholds. So it is for God to choose as he wishes. If he says yes who can say no? We are nothing but creatures in his sight. We thank God for his chosen servant. For many are called, but few are chosen. God Bless Pastor TB Joshua. God is our victory!

    In Zimbabwe we pray for your sucess.

  • Dwasi M. Masunga

    Oh Yes! Now I know what Am going through this time is my stopping interval, this gives me strength to continue in faith

  • i am blessed by the message, instead of indulging in self pity about lost opportunities, one should instead ask God’s opinion about what he is going through in relation to his purpose and desire for our life. This message is awesome

  • Alfred Chileya

    Yes indeed! GOD has destined us to do what HE brought us on earth for. If detractors have eyes, critics have unbiased perception about the GOD of prophet TB Joshua then they will definitely see the real light and confess the truth. I mean what lesson does the story of the Cameroonian witch and the witched tell us, the internet satanic abuse and effects of the victims. Cant this reveal to all that TB J is a very rare kind of men with a mission from GOD! Alfred Chileya KITWE Zambia
    I also worship the same GOD who prophet TB Joshua worships.

  • Pastina

    Praise the Lord. Emmanuel!!!

    My life has been reformed thru the prophet’s teachings.

    With each viewing on Emmanuel TV, I get assured that ‘the best is yet to come’ especially after those regular prayers on the station.

    I now belong to the SCOAN thru and thru. T B Joshua’s God is my God as well and I trust I shall be delivered thru faith.

    Amen

  • Sandra

    Jesus was born like any one of us,grew up and did God’s work to the fullest.it was God humbling himself so we could all identify with Him.He met with the same trials &tribulations just like any of us or even worse but He continued with God’s work so we could see that its possible because if He had just dropped from heaven we would say He was immortal so God made sure we can see that pain&persecution is part of life but it’s not to make us stop living for Him,Man of God grew up the way he did &passed through everything so we can identify with his life.God does that he humbles himself through his servants why because God is humility.i wish to meet with you man of God.GOD BE WITH YOU

    AS it is,a woman conceives n gives birth to a child,so it’s also natural for greatness to start small,this the principle of human life.no short cuts,the long way of patience is the lone way to greatness!!God bless you all as you agree to comply wth the principle of patience.

  • Mbang sama

    la vie de TB jOSHUA est une vie qui résume beaucoup de vies dans le monde. Et je souhaite pour ma pars que l’etre humain comprenne que la vie est une épreuve,une mission temporaire sur la terre et enfin une responsabilité.Se soumetre à la volonté de Dieu nous condui forcement vers le but que Dieu se fixe pour nous.

    The life of the prophet has really made me to hold fast the prmises of God irrespective of what i am facing now.Put ur trust in him.

  • Evangelist Evans Mwansa

    Im always blessed with your biography and it propeled me to go forwad . Even me im called , i have passed thru forests,dry lands,mountains and fires but im still on the track by his grace. I have never have a job in my life after school. After i had a dream , JESUS broutht me the BIBLE and told me that go to school, from that moment my life is changed. This time i just do the work of GOD , and i have found that it is the greatest job in the world.

    Let us all worship our Lord Jesus Christ and praise him in truth. Surely Lord Jesus Christ he will show the way. Sometimes you have to experience some challenges in order to achieve some thing. For sure the Lord Jesus Christ will not let you down. Also patience counts because the Lord Jesus Christ has his own time to implement what you are asking from him.

    THANKS MAN OF GOD ALL OVER THE WORLD TO EVERYONE,KNOW THAT THE ONE WHO IS IN YOU JESUS(IF YOU HAVE HIM) IS GREATER THAN EVERYTHING THAT IS EVERY NAME(SIN,POVERTY SICKNESS,SATAN AND HIS ASSOCIATES) SHOULD BOW OR RESPECT HIM.THIS NAME WAS GIVEN FOR OUR BENEFIT AND SURVIVAL.EVERYTHING HAS A FOUNDATION AND STARTS SMALL BUT IT TAKES FAITH TO REALIZE ITS BIGNESS.DO NOT DOWN LOOK WHATEVER YOU ARE DOING BY COMPARING IT WITH THAT OF OTHER PEOPLE.IF IT LOOKS LIKE SMALL TELL YOURSELF THAT IT IS A YEAST,A BOMB,A HUGE THING.EVERYTHING STARTS SMALL AND GROWS BIG DEPENDING ON HOW YOU WATER AND CULTIVATE IT AND IT DEPENDS ON YOUR FAITH AND ON WHO IS THE FOUNDER OF THE THING IN PARTICULAR.REMEMBER HOW JOSEPH SON OF JACOB GREW REMEMBER THE SMALL CLOUD SEEN BY ELIJAH HOW IT TURNED TO BE A GREAT RAIN AFTER THAT DROUGHT NOT TO MENTION THE WIDOW’S WHO MET THESE PROPHETS HOW THEIR OIL AND FOOD BECAME,COUNTING NOT THE THE 5 LOAVES AND 3 FISH EATEN BY 5000 PEOPLE.ALL THIS HAPPENED FOR OUR BENEFIT TO STRENGTHEN US TO KNOW THAT WITH GOD NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.SO PLEASE ALL OVER THE WORLD OFFER ALL WHATEVER YOU DO TO GOD THE PERFECTER OF OUR LIFE AND WITH HIM EVERYTHING THAT SEEM TO BE USELESS IS MADE BIG AND USEFUL.COMPARE NOT WITH OTHERS WHATEVER YOU DO BUT FOCUS ON WHETHER IS IT FROM GOD OR NOT .REMEMBER THE ONE WHO GUARD A HOUSE WITHOUT JESUS GUARD IT IN VAIN SO IF YOU ARE WITH GOD WHY WORRY. GOD BLESS

    Thru your biography, i learned that many things which generally cause us to gramble, complain are not necessarily meant to destroy us but to strengthen us and draw us near to God provided we look at them with an eye and sense of matuarity. Brethren, lets by all means fight to distinguish between Light and darkness. It is a blessing on my side to have known a man like you T.B Joshua.

  • Iyke Nwosu

    Your life is a living testimony to everyone. It tells me that, no matter how hard you tried to do things on your own to succeed; God’s will and purpose for your life must prevail. God has definite assignment for every of his creature. I bless the Almighty God who made you what you are today. And I pray for His continuous mercy and divine grace and anointing upon your life, to steadfastly be a blessing to this generation. Thank you.

  • frederick marandu

    Praise GOD!its really good and planne of might GOD for the TB JOSHUA to under go this biography, i also remember before my late fathet died 29.05.1981 he use to promise that my son (my self) i will be a father of (padre)missionare as he was a good christian in catholic churches assisting many jobs including ophans father less and bulding samething to the house of father less,so he use to tell me that since you have born i said you will save GOD as a father of missionare but look when i was finnished my primary education 1984 it was time for the interview to start seminary secondary school so i was prepared for the following day for the inter view but the nextday i walk up with increadible hedeck( herd eaking) till i could not manage to attend!again nextchance it happen that missionaryan sisters they came and said we have came to take you from DAR ES SALAAM to DODOMA we remember the promice of you late father, but look that time my mother was serious sick and i said my father passed a way so i can not leave my mother a lon as my brother is not here and the remain is only my youg sisters and young brother’s only,so in that way i was continuor with other kind of education but later i discovered that my GOD has a big planne in my life look later i born again with my wife now we incourage others to receive lord jesus as their own seviur if i was a father of missionary in catholick church it is forbiden to prich salvation!where would i be?!.so thank GOD for what has done to you sevant of GOD TB JOSHUA that was really planne of GOD to hill his people by ussing your hand!keep it up! also congatulation you have now train your assistance now thay do well as you do!be blessed.But if by chance you will see this message speek the word and GOD will protect my family AMEN email fredrickmarandu@yahoo.com

Snr Prophet T B Joshua a great Man of God chosen by the creator of the universe God Almighty to perform his duties on this earth to mankind, that is to prophecy, to heal, to deliver, to help others just mention a few must keep performing what he has been assigned to do, because his name is registered in the book of life and he is a candidate of heaven and a friend of God Almighty. May the good Lord Jesus Christ immensely bless him and give him a long life. In Jesus Christ name

  • Ray D N

    This is one of the greatest lesson, learning from life itself and being confident of future breakthrough before you receive it. That is Faith. Your mom played a very good role in your character building Sir. Our sallutations and honour should all be generously and deservedly accorded to her. A mother who is a good role model and inspiration for her children. This is a big lesson for all parents to provide guidance that is rooted in the word to their children. Taking things lightly without God’s wisdom breeds bad character which will be difficult to change. Above all we should be contended and patient to wait for for God’s blessings in our lives at his appointed time. Thank you for the insightful biography.

    thank you prophet Joshua. My life has been so full of many wrongs. failures, no progress that i was beginning to lose hope. Your story has revived me, i can be joyful in hope. Indeed God is in control!

  • James Nuro Addai-Amoah

    The biography of the man of God is my counselor. It’s quite obvious that; downfall of a man is not the end of his life. Again, rejection leads to direction, and where there is life, there is hhope. No matter what the situation, I am born to win in Jesus’ name. AMEN!!!

  • BOATEY SYLVESTER ERNEST

    Prophet, am so much filled with joy to read your biography. There is hope for all us.

    It is with joy thati identify myself with the history of Prophet T.B. JOSHUA. People that doubt in the personality of this great man of God, are really doubting their concrete existence. He a human being that God is using mightily
    to bring God’s salvation to the world. May God increase him mightily and from strength to strength.

  • shephard mabauwa

    what then shall we say if God is for us who can be against us we love you papa Joshua may God richly bless u

    • Mark Amadu Kamara

      God has blessed T.B. Joshua with the gift of healing and blessing people with God’s love. This was the mandate Jesusu Christ gave to his disciples when he said, “if you believe, you will do greater works than this”. Faith is the passport to God’s healing and that is what Prophet T,B, Joshua is preaching, teaching and practicing everyday

  • Frans Simlon

    I have gone through the same thing as prophet TB Joshua did. I started last year when I was admitted to the university of science and technology ( NUST) in Namibia. Last year 2015 my education was going better even if I didn’t performed well in most of my subjects. This year from January I couldn’t really figure out what went wrong with my studying on concentrating ability. Just like Prophet TB Joshua said he do sometimes forget important documents when going for the interview, I Simlon I sometimes forget my student card or timetable that is composary when going to write an exam.
    As a result I started thinking someone is against me, that someone might have wicthed me. I started feeling helpless and sometimes really stressed out. Not only that, but sometimes I find myself not knowing that we are writing a test on a certain day. Sometimes I found myself going home without knowing we are writing a test that day, only my friends tell me sometimes. I messed alot of assignments without knowing it. I was in pain sometimes. But anyways I was not afraid to quit, so I just quited.

    Know Im wondering what the future really holds for me. But just that I read the Temitope article, I don’t have fear anymore, I’m in right way, I learned about life, more experience than ever before.

    I know that God gave me a redirection to quit school and go do what really amazes me, full filling my dreams and do His work that he created me for, in his name. Even if me and prophet TB Joshua don’t have the same calling, some experience will still lead me to what I was specially purposefully created for.
