This morning on my way into work my girlfriend read me a story about a Nigerian man who, survived for 3 days, trapped in a tug boat under the Atlantic ocean.  Trust me if you do nothing else today you want to read this story! http://americanlivewire.com/nigerian-man-harrison-odjegba-okene-survives-3-days-trapped-tug-boat-beneath-atlantic-ocean/

 

The tugboat sank and everyone but  Harrison Odjegba Okene drowned. The man survived in an air pocket. Divers were exploring the wreck pulling up bodies of his shipmates and then shock fell over the diver and the crew watching the divers videos when one of the bodies grabbed him. Trust me follow the link read the story and watch the raw video footage. Harrison Odjegba Okene survived!

The man hoped prayed and recited a psalm sent to him via text from his wife and he was rescued. His hope was rewarded with life. Hope is something that is hard to understand and sometimes even harder to employ. It is easy to give up but giving up doesn’t work. Harrison Odjegba Okene survived!

I am not sure what situation you are encountering. Maybe you have some problems at home or work. Whatever they are I am sure that they are not as dire as Harrison Odjegba Okene was trapped underwater in the air pocket. Hang in there help is on the way. Whatever it is, you can make it, but only if you do not give up!

Do yourself a favor, read the story and watch the video (that has gone viral). Be inspired!

peace
