The realities and truths that hit humans show us how fragile life is and how much we need to be kind to others.
In this interview, Jim Ikye shared so many truths and debunked a lot of misunderstandings about himself, his personality, family, and career. This is one of the most profound and real interviews.
Amongst so many, the one I think I should share is when I asked Jim Ikye, ‘What’s the thing that most held you?”, he said God. “Now, what I liked about it… and I do not disbelieve people when they say God, but sometimes you have to communicate things in a way that people know that you really felt it.
“Not prayer, not performance, not fasting for 20 days, not all those big things that we think we have to do to earn God’s grace, no. Sometimes it’s just, ‘God, please help me, please show me’. I don’t want to doubt you; these things are making me doubt you. Please let God be there for me.
The Christian Bible says, in Jeremiah 29:13, ‘and you will seek me and find me when you search for me with all your heart’. It’s at that moment when you’re not performing, when you just say, God, help me. God, if you exist, show up for me. God, if you exist, help me. That authentic prayer when nothing else is working. That is what I learned from Jim Iyke today.
