The last I can remember having such an awesome time was years back when I celebrated my 10-year old birthday, it was an amazing time in my life when it was a really big deal for kids, I practically had a cake made for me and I posed with friends and family as the picture was taken, happy birthday to me, they all yelled. Years after, in 2017, God brought back the good times and it's been an awesome run for me and can only look forward to more breathtaking years to come and just here around the corner, 2018.
Entering into the year 2017 like so many, I had new year resolutions that many of course turn their backs to, after few weeks of deceiving themselves that they actually can but they soon get tired and just move with the flow. That was my very story. Anyways, it wasn't really a bad episode but I knew I had to make it a pretty interesting one and to do that, I had to take life by the horn, so I resolved to take some drastic steps which required me to take some delicate decisions and one of which was to quit a job I was doing at the time.
The money saved up from the job was used to acquire an iPhone which was practically all I had to start up my dream. To be a blogger, I believe you're meant to have a laptop amongst many other gadgets but I couldn't even afford to pay for cyberspace in a cafe, my friend basically supported the first CAUSE by allowing me use his cafe to set up my free blogspot and June 2016, King Solomon's Mine was born. It really wasn't the best of times but I'm grateful because today wouldn't have been possible without that brave step I took to start small, so never despise the days of little beginnings.
2017, in July, to be precise, the premium blog that we all celebrate today went LIVE, that was one of the happiest moments of my life. In just 5 months, KSM has featured over 40 salvation stories from different parts of the world and have about 20 stories yet to be published but already edited and ready to fly. It's been one testimony or the other ever since and the sky is just the starting point really, more to come in 2018.
Through this time, I've been privileged to meet wonderful personalities I never thought I could trade talks with and it only proves one thing and it's the fact that God would always be true to His Word. If He has orchestrated it, He would back it up. If He has sent you, He would support you. It's been a journey of one man travelling on a flavour-filled trip. God has been my source. He has practically raised helpers for me to meet my needs in regards to the welfare of the blog.
When I started the project, I promised myself never to lift stuff from the internet like many do, I believe those are people's life work and should be respected and would only work with people's materials only at their approval and God sent me contributors both locally and internationally, who love what I'm doing and want to be associated with it, and I can say for a fact that KSM deals with 100% original contents and real-life situations/stories. Everything published has a shared right with the author if not personally written by me and of course, the salvation stories are a joint partnership between Kay Magnate for King Solomon's Mine and the Ministers, Gospel Artist and Men and Women and faith who share their stories with us.
With that said, I'm happy to say I ended well in 2017 and the work has just started. A lot has to be done in the years to come but you can be sure to expect nothing but the best as plans are taking turns after each other and I can only ask for more grace because, at the end of the day, man proposes, God, disposes. Few weeks into the year 2018, plans would be communicated for those who would love to support the CAUSE and the good Lord will continue to endow our lives with so many beautiful things as we do His work. And to all my fellow bloggers, writers and speakers, Gospel Artist and Ministers of God working tirelessly towards the uplifting of the kingdom, God is taking note and we all shall end well in Jesus name.
Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!!
