God Should’ve Taken One Of Our Bad Leaders Instead Of Rico Swavey – Ifu Ennada
Faith Uloma better known as Ifu Ennada, has queried God’s existence and why He didn’t take one of the bad leaders in Nigeria instead of Rico Swavey, her recently dead colleague.
Rico Swavey departed this life on Thursday morning, 13th October, after being involved in a ghastly accident on Tuesday, 11th October, around the Lekki/ Ajah area of Lagos State.
Ifu, while mourning her colleague, queried God over the death of Rico.
“Guys, I just confirmed that Rico is gone. I’m crying, and my hands are shaking as I type this. I don’t know why God did this. I mean, we prayed and begged him. Some of us even donated… I don’t know why God does the things he does, none of it makes sense to me, but Rico, a great guy, is no longer with us.
“Rico was the best of us and his heart was so pure. I don’t know why God did this. It doesn’t make sense.
“Or maybe there’s no God? Cos why do you say “ask and it shall be given”, but we ask and we don’t get. What sort of thing is that?
“May God forgive me for asking if there’s a God in my last story. I know there’s a God, but most times I don’t understand the way He works…leaves me with many questions. Bad people who I feel should die are alive, but the good ones keep dying. None of it makes sense to me. May God have mercy on me, May God have mercy on us all.
“Who is responsible when a good person dies? God or the Devil? I believe God is responsible because all powers belong to Him and He could easily turn things around if He pleases, especially when we pray and beg… God isresponsible when agood person dies…
“My head is filled with so much right now as is my heart. I have so many questions; why did God let this happen? Nothing makes sense to me. Rico was a great guy, so peaceful and kind, so warm and welcoming. None of this makes sense to me.
“If someone really needed to die, God could have taken one of our bad leaders. Nobody will miss them, nobody will mourn them. But what do I know? What can I do? This is not fair.
“My heart is broken, I’ve lost loved ones this year. People who deserved to live. Makes me wonder how God determines who should die and who should live. Makes me wonder how much time I have left on Earth. Nothing Makes sense to me. May God have mercy on us all.”
