I couldn’t afford international trip until 2011 – Linda Ikeji


Top blogger, Linda Ikeji, has urged people still struggling not to lose hope.

She sought to inspire them in a piece she published today, titled ‘Delay is not a denial.’

Narrating her own story, she noted that all was far from being a bed of roses for her before2011, as exemplified in the fact that she could not afford an international trip till then.

The blogger who welcomed her first child late last year, however, boasted that, at this moment, she could afford to take 10 people on a luxury trip abroad.

She wrote, “The first time I stepped foot outside of Nigeria was in November 2011. I was 31. Before then, I’d never entered an international flight. I never had the opportunity to travel abroad and definitely couldn’t afford a holiday. I always wondered what the outside world looked like..
Fast forward to 7 years later. Now I can travel to any part of the world I want…maybe even take 10 people with me and give them a luxury trip. And throw in shopping money inside sef…lol..
I have learnt through my own journey that delay is not denial. Sometimes things will come when it will come. You can’t hurry it along no matter how much you work, plan or pray. What you need is patience and trust God’s perfect timing for what is meant for you.

God will come through for you as long as you keep the faith, refuse to give up and keep working. Sometimes the delay is God preparing you for greatness beyond what you even envisioned. So don’t be down that you are not where you want to be now.

Your breakthrough is coming! It may be taking a long time, but God didn’t bring you this far to leave you and you didn’t bring yourself this far to give up. So increase your determination, increase your drive, do everything with all your might and be patient.
Your time is coming! Oh, it will come…and soon! The question is; are you ready?
