It’s a rather sad day today in Nigeria. April 14, 2014 will go down the annals of history as one of the most sombre days in our history.
Nigerians have cried, protested, begged, advocated and even with international community influence, the over 200 girls abducted by the Boko Haram in Chibok, are not home.
But the tears will not last forever.
When the Lord brought back his exiles to Jerusalem,
it was like a dream!
2 We were filled with laughter,
and we sang for joy.
And the other nations said,
“What amazing things the Lord has done for them.”
3 Yes, the Lord has done amazing things for us!
4 Restore our fortunes, Lord,
as streams renew the desert.
5 Those who plant in tears
will harvest with shouts of joy.
6 They weep as they go to plant their seed,
but they sing as they return with the harvest.
Rain rain go away
The feild is set for play today
Alone i walk in search of clay
Alone i feel inside today
With them she went away they say
Away with them! Oh Lord I pray
Who will save my friend today?
Who will save my girl today?
Where is my child? Where is my girl? Where is my hope? Where is my pearl?
She’s only a child, what does she know?
Why make her reap? What did she sow?
Let it be me, let it be us
Let it be them, let it be just
Let it be fair, let it be soft
Let it be peace, let it be love
What has my child done today?
Who will save my girl today?
The night is black the sun is red
His face is dark his gun is red
With blood he said, the blood he shed
To spoil the child, his rod he spared
I cower with fear, the hour is near
My power is fear, my hour is here
Can not somebody hear me today?
Who will save myself today
Psalm 55:16-18 (TLB)
16 But I will call upon the Lord to save me—and he will.
17 I will pray morning, noon, and night, pleading aloud with God; and he will hear and answer. 18 Though the tide of battle runs strongly against me, for so many are fighting me, yet he will rescue me
Isn’t it good to know that we serve a Deliverer? We might be afflicted today, but God is working to bring us out of this difficult situation.
It may not be in the way we think, but we have to trust that God has our best interest at heart.

We have cried, we have spoken out, we have complained, and we have protested. We have heard from government officials, (whether we believe them or not is not the case here) and we have heard from the media, both local and international. However in our grief, anger and pain, let us not lose sight of what’s most important; hearing from GOD.

There have been several cries in the media and the public in general about the identity of the abducted Chibok girls. Several conspiracy theories have sprung up, and this morning, i was fortunate to interview one of the direct victims involved. His story is deeply moving and the details are quite chilly.

It’s appalling to see the lack luster attitude and almost non-nonchalance displayed by the Nigerian Government over the missing Chibok girls. A lot has been said on the politics of this matter, and i will not even pretend to comprehend the politics of it.
