The first impression I had of an immunology course I took in my third year at tertiary school was a very profound one…the goodoo MICR 389.
I couldn’t help but marvel at the masterpiece God created as human beings. The lecturer painted a very good picture of God’s work of art. He explained how the human body has the ability to fix itself when things go wrong. Some times, we ‘fall ill’ and get well without even noticing it. He brought to light the magic that goes on at inflammation sites, how antibodies work, and I couldn’t help but fall in love with the course that day…
Want to know the later impression I had about the course? Ask another Microbiologist 😁
So, back to the essence of the story. Many miracles happen without our notice. We try some times to thank God only for what our eyes have seen, and what our minds have considered massive.
Let’s stretch our minds a little…
What do you think the world will look like if there was no nighttime? Like the whole twenty-four hours was just bright light…
Okay…that may be unthinkable for you so let’s flip the question
How will it look like if the whole twenty-four hours was night? Darkness all the time…
How will it look like if you accidentally cut your finger with a knife, and you bleed to death because your blood will not clot?
Can you imagine what would happen if all the water on earth was in the continent of Antarctica alone?
I know we like the thought of being wealthy, so can you think of how the entire world will be if everywhere was covered with diamonds such that there was no plain soil for farming?
For about a week during the holidays, I lost my sense of smell because of a serious catarrh I had- a kind I’ve never experienced. My nostrils were inflamed, I had to breathe through my mouth most of the time. I’ve never for once sat to think of, or imagine the anatomy of the nose or the physiology of smell.
Whatever it is that went wrong, I longed to have my senses back! And that was when I became most grateful for the tiny little things. The new year is still young, and I know you’ve probably had your moments of Thanksgiving to God, but it doesn’t hurt to spare some time to reminisce and appreciate God for the little blessings and miracles that happened unnoticed or unappreciated.
We can’t thank God enough, but at the same time, we can’t be too grateful.
God wants us to enjoy life, and we are way to go if we can savour each moment, and appreciate Him for it!
I’m so grateful that I can write, and I can share God’s love with people, everywhere I go.
What are you most grateful for today?
