THE SIGNIFICANCE OF FORTY
Forty marks a new beginning in one’s life. It is like starting a new phase of life. I was born in Ilesa, the biggest city in Osun State, Nigeria, exactly forty years ago. I was born not with silver spoon in my mouth but I am sure I was born to fulfill a mission here on earth. I am not a product of accident, I was purposely sent by God to affect my generation positively.
There is a common saying that some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them. I am sure that I have a greatness thrust upon me because I strongly believe that everyone is born a star, whether you are shining or not is now left to you. God created every one of us as stars and created enough space in the sky for us to shine. The more the numbers of the shining stars, the more the illumination, so let us all begin to shine and deliver our world from darkness.
