Some blessing quotes, I read about the other day made me recollect a profound incident that happened recently.
I don’t know if any of you has noticed but most often times than not, just when we think that we can’t go on, we can’t keep trying, unexpected blessings come through, unexpectedly from unexpected quarters.
When we don’t have any more zeal, motivation, or will to continue whatever it is we are doing or trying to achieve, a helper comes from the blue and gives us the necessary boost that we need to go on.
A helper always turns out to be who we least expected. Most times virtual strangers. People we meet “accidentally”. At specific points of needs in our lives.
I think it is a way the universe “balances” things out. Of course, that is my thinking and personal opinion
Unexpected Blessings From Unexpected Quarters

Today I was reflecting on all that after a colleague made a comment about a guy helping to pay a girl’s tuition fees in their neighborhood. The gist was that the young girl was narrating the fact that her parents could not afford her tuition fees despite the fact that she passed her university entrance exams with flying colors.
Well, she got unexpected blessings from an unexpected person. An absolute stranger. Apparently, the guy took an interest when he overheard the young girl narrating the “ordeal” to someone. He asked the young girl where she lives and followed her to her parents. After determining that the man doesn’t have any ulterior motive (one can never be too careful these days), the parents listened to the stranger.
To cut a long story short (as we would say in Nigeria lol), the guy ended up paying the tuition fees and then left some money in a bank account opened solely for the young girl’s education.
With a promise to help throughout the young girl’s university education! Who does that?
A virtual stranger. A helper. Unexpected blessings from unexpected quarters. Simply amazing.
When Unexpected Blessings Comes
Many a time, I have been blessed with unexpected blessings when I least expected them. There were times I was in a jam, thinking about how to get myself out of it, viola, I get help on a platter of gold.
I have met a lot of people. Funny enough, online that went on to play very big and important roles in my life. More so than family and close friends.
These sort of blessings and the young girl’s story gives hope. It makes me feel there is a lot of good in the world even though the negative tend to “want” to overshadow the positives because bad news travels like wildfire and attracts more than good news.
It is moments like these that give me hope and the courage to keep on even when it feels like all I see is an endless dark tunnel without any hint of light at the end of the said dark tunnel.
It is moments like these that encourage me to be the best version of myself. To go the extra mile, to be extra in everything I do.
Not only for people who are watching, people who look up to me but for me. To know and have a good feeling that whatever I do, I give it the best.
No matter what, there is always light at the end of the tunnel. You have to believe that otherwise, you will feel hopeless each time you want to start something and at the end, you won’t succeed in it,
That is why I use these DAILY AFFIRMATIONS to help me every single day. I hope you find them helpful too!
Unexpected Blessings From God
Most times, we tend to count the things that God has yet to do for us rather than count the blessings He has bestowed on us even without asking.
I guess it is human nature but we can do better.
I have found myself doing that most times. Wishing things were different. Thinking if I had a particular thing, life would be different or bitch about how God has not done a certain thing for me while conveniently forgetting the good things He has done and continues doing.
I believe some unexpected blessings and help that came my way were ordained by God. Pre-ordained. Destined to happen. I don’t know who else believes this but I do. Wholeheartedly.
Otherwise, how would you explain the young girl’s story? How would you explain all those help from strangers, friends, and family just when you needed that help?
They are unexpected blessings from God.
God indeed works in mysterious ways as the good book says. That is why we receive blessings in the form of help in ways we cannot explain or define.
That is God for you.
In reminiscing and trying to put my thoughts in perspective on this blog post about unexpected blessings when we least expect them. I came across some God blessing quotes I believe are worth sharing with you all.
Blessing Quotes: 1
“If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse.”
Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny
Blessing Quotes: 2
“One of the main reasons that we lose our enthusiasm in life is because we become ungrateful. We let what was once a miracle become common to us. We get so accustomed to his goodness it becomes a routine..”

Blessing Quotes: 10
When you begin to worry, go find something to do. Get busy being a blessing to someone; do something fruitful. Talking about your problem or sitting alone, thinking about it, does no good; it serves only to make you miserable. Above all else, remember that worrying is totally useless. Worrying will not solve your problem. Joyce Meyer

Hi Jennifer, I really enjoyed this! One of your quotes reminded me of another quote from Joyce Meyer,”Worry is like rocking in a rocking chair all day, because it keeps you busy but gets you nowhere.” She has the best quotes on worrying! Instead of worrying which does nothing for us at all, we need to count our blessings and practice gratitude. Thanks for the inspirational post!
Thank you Nicole! As always your comments on my blog are always insightful and delightful to read! I absolutely love the fact that Joyce Meyer likened worrying to rocking in a rocking chair! I will have to look into Joyce Meyer’s quotes more and see if I can coin a blog post from them! We all need the motivation we can get but first we have to be our own motivation first and foremost before we can be motivated by others and practicing gratitude is a great way to start!
You can say that again Harbans
