There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven- Ecclesiastes 3:1.
There are times in life that disturbs the core values of our being. There are also times when the aroma and beauty of life at hand puzzles every imagination, leaving sweet fragrance of love behind and eliminating all the scars of worries. The mystery of life is way beyond human comprehension, however, life’s package offers unlimited and unsorted goodies worth the embrace for ones personal growth.
Doing good to people does not guarantee equal treatment. Those that we love, are equally capable of hurting us the most. Expecting the unexpected ought be a skill mastered by all to sail through the boat of life without birthing frustrations and hatred. Too much confidence in both people and materials has serious ramifications on individuals.
People come and go. Opportunities too, are created, lost and destroyed. There is nothing new under the sun. Crying over spilt milk blinds the eyes of creativity to deal with situations at hand and prevent personal growth in many. Acceptance is a huge step towards living a happy life in this unpredictable world. Whatever the world throws at us, let us make the best use out of it.
Our deepest desire is to live in a world filled with love, peace and prosperity. Unfortunately, what we get is not usually, what we bargained for. Amidst pain, suffering and disappointments, some are lavishingly dinning and celebrating with life. It can not be argued further that life has never been fair. One’s calamities translate into someone’s testimony.
The agony experienced through pain cannot last forever. No situation is permanent. Cultivating grudges, unforgivingness and hatred signifies lack of understanding on what life is all about. Life’s journey purposely throws hate, disappointments and ingratitude to provoke our reaction. We build our expectations on things and people that we have invested and valued. What we get from our expectations, unfortunately, leave a lot to be desired. Surprisingly, others deservingly get what they had planted and hoped for. It is the way it is . It is just part of life which is so hard to understand. Regardless, life never ceases to evolve, it goes on.
Life has its own ways of surprising us when we least expect. The joy experienced today does not guarantee a perfect future nor the tear drops shed warrant a gloomy ending. When its time to cry, cry for the moment. When its time to celebrate, celebrate for the moment. The situation at hand either good or bad should not deceive our brains thinking that it is permanent. This too shall surely pass. Gearing our minds for both the expected and unexpected is crucial in understanding that bad and good things are just part of this mysterious world of ours.
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the whole duty of man. For God will bring every deed into judgement, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil- Ecclesiastes 12:13-14
