Iyanu: Our miracle of enduring substance by Tamilore
It’s been a minute and I have missed you dearly.
It’s time to share a wonderful story I read on a blog my loved one shared with me. For me, it tells of how much God loves us and how our relationship with him should be.
I remembered how on one of my Whatsapp group chats a friend made a comment. He said “Many of us put our expectation within our means, that is not faith. Many ask God for puff-puff, chin-chin, sweet and yoghurt. What about asking God to make you the World Richest because we need cash for mission works?” Another friend of mine replied by saying that God cares about the ‘small stuff’ in our lives as much as the big stuff.
Both statements are very true. But, in reading this message I’ve come to understand that God doesn’t just want to bless us so that we can be satisfied. He wants to bless us so that we can be a blessing. Asking for the big stuff shows our mentality beyond ‘self’ and shows our desire to be used by God. In the big things we ask for, most definitely the small things will be taken care off and often will have to be addressed first before the ‘big things’ can manifest.
Enjoy the wonderful lessons from this story.

Dejected, Igbagbo abandoned his journey and headed back home. Somewhere along the way, he met another old lady called Iyanu. She showed him her candy. Afraid of being deceived again, Igbagbo rejected it. Besides, her candy looked mundane, there was no way it could have been sweet.
Iyanu had known that Igbagbo would reject her candy. So, she asked him, “Would you trust my candy if I…
