Life as it is

Life as it is, is not like the pages of a novel

Nothing like the passing seconds of a movie

Life as it is, is a strange one to demystify.

As a mother wails in pain in labour,

Another wails to God every night for the fruit of her womb

As one breaks records at the Olympics,

Another pulls the cart, sweating up the hill, trying to put the same meal on the table

As one rejoices over the beauty of love,

Another, somewhere, takes his life because of the same love

As much as we would love to understand life,

Life is a mystery to the living and to the dead

To everything there is a reason records Solomon, whose wisdom we cannot contest

Although sometimes I wonder whether to some its just one prolonged season...

Is life about time and chance as Solomon perceived?

Well, I do not know.

I do not know why you are where you are in life

Why your seasons are longer and frustrating

Why you seem to be experiencing extreme winter and rarely does the sun shine and give you a chance to flaunt your sun dress or your beach shorts!

But I do know 3 things:

  1. God is not man that He should lie
  2. The race is not for the swift or the battle for the strong. Eccl. 9:11
  3. There is time for everything under the sun
With that friends, work hard, pray honestly, tithe faithfully, faithfully keep the 10 commandments and get some good sleep.

For life as it is, is to live by faith.

Live by faith this week friends. All we need is a mustard seed kind of faith. Faith is letting God be the driver of your life. For God knows best what is best for us.
