A father recounts how he had to change his wayward ways after witnessing the premature birth of his daughter.
Known as David Psalmtwentythree Osaghae on Facebook, the proud father of a now 14-year-old daughter, shared how he had to make corrections on his life following her birth.
The man who is passionate about Judo, shared how he prayed to God about his then premature daughter.
Here's what he wrote below:
"TBT - This was the beginning of a new me, the process of change, redemption, salvation or simply put, getting closer to God. My daughter was born on the 3rd of March 2002, after 5 months and 2 weeks of pregnancy. She was premature. I had just finished my overnight or 2nd job as a bouncer in a club in Germany. She weighed 790 grams, not even 1kg. On seeing her tiny structure inside the incubator, I cried like I never cried before. I asked God, why, why me? After crying out my heart, I realized only a miracle could save her. She is the reason till today, why my faith in God is so strong. I laid my hands over her and prayed. I did not know what to pray about, but I prayed my pains onto God and begged God not to allow my sins/punishment for my numerous transgressions be passed unto my little girl.
I made a vow to God. 3 days later I went and paid the vow to my Church to be passed unto the poor and needy. My Pastor prayed with me. I prayed that my daughter would leave that hospital without complications hence the vow/deal with God. My daughter is 14+ years old now, straight A student, speaks 3 international languages already, and she left that hospital without complications what else can I say. My pain as I saw it then was actually God's way of drawing me closer to come to know him and have faith in him to prepare me for the movement that was to come. This was the day that the destiny of Judo Movement was redirected from waywardness back to the narrow path of Christ #tbt #Godisgood #judomovement."
