…..the usher had tapped me several times during the prayer but I kept telling him that I wasn’t sleeping. I gave him the impression that I was having a voiceless communion with my saviour by sitting down while others stood to pray.
The usher got tired of tapping me and he left me to sleep. I might have slept for a while when the usher tapped me again and I immediately got up while shaking my head like a red headed lizard. I never knew the prayer session was over and the usher woke me up to listen to the message. As I looked round, everyone was sitted and I was the only one standing with a shaky head.
It was the day I first desired that I get swallowed by the ground alive. People laughed at me and the preacher also made a light joke of my situation. Since that day,I stopped deceiving myself in church and even in life issues.
1. Deception would not last forever as the truth would surely come out
2. Deceiving people rubbishes you eventually. Why not be honest.
