Life’s becoming all too painful. Today sarah is gone and tomorrow Stephen is strangled. Should I stay indoors,letting go every single dream? And then wait for my bell to call for me?
No, i find that won’t do. I’ll rather be about life’s affair,pursuing those dreams. And in all the pursuits,I must remember that,this side is not permanent.
An old man would ask for my memoir,it better be not stained with unholy toils. For it guarantees my rest type. “A good or a bad” who can deduce? I will do well to ensure that I cross Jordan. For rest resides beyond the river!
I want to go to heaven For there the final party shall be held A joy immeasurable tied in quiet peace Shall be present too The mansion builder says so But am all lies no truth residing in all my head!
I want to go to heaven Holiness is pilot for the flight But am all filthy Even my receding imaginations affirm And my conscience says so In my dream I find no monument above Every ounce of my energy Sapped out For partying in earth’s doomed club The great journal says so!
I want to go to heaven Though frail and underserving Yet I’ll hold unto the edges of the cross For there lies my hope His blood atoning The promise of redemption A translation to his kingdom divine From sinful earth To holy heaven Amazing grace says so!
I accompanied an old folk to keep up with his appointment at the physiotherapist office. He had been down with a health challenge and found it strain to walk with his left leg. On reaching there I saw two other folks in a more pathetic state than the person i went there with. Almost immediately one hundred and one barrels of appreciation hurried down and tugged at his heart string. He became so grateful to God for his mercy and faithfulness. A man shared his testimony, I just got an employment with the fire service under the federal government. I resumed for training and had almost concluded when I suddenly could no longer walk,talk or even remember a thing. Am trying to get back right on track. It’s been two years he added. His left partition of the body hasn’t responded yet.
A young man named Stanley also came on board. He looked so handsome but couldn’t move his right hand. He said he was given birth to in that condition. Both young and old folk with pathetic challenges. All of them were striving to get back on track. They were not giving up! But guess what. They are responding to their challenges positively. They’ve shown doggedness. Oh yes, life may have slept on the bad side of her bed and when she’s up,she gives you all the bad. Unfortunately you can’t see her you’d have loved to ask her. “What have I done”
These folks have buried an indomitable courage in their hearts and are working towards rising again. The ice storm has bent them down so hard in winter. But they’re waiting for the summer sun. When they shall rise like the birche tree. Rising beyond who they use to me. Oh yes,your response to circumstances determines your strength. And let me remind you, if your strength should fail in adversity then your strength is little. Before you get worked up,how do i gain strength when everything life presents is bleak? There’s a man I know,he’s strength personified go find him@Jesuschrist. On your bed,on your knees any where any how. Just confide in him. He gives joy in hurting moments. He gives hope that transcends the now. He speaks assuredly to folks who invites him”And lo, I am with you”
You may not be a physiotherapist to help people get back on life’s track from diverse challenges they face, but you can give that crying baby a smile. No matter your profession, location or capacity. Allow the hope of glory in you to give hurting hearts hope. Save a life today. Help that old and young to catch hope and smile at its ray. Be committed, be consistent. Every work place is an altar. Treat people nice. Heaven’s watching. The righteous judge will surely recompense. You will find your bread after many days if casted upon the water.
On your path, be strong,be resilient,life will always bring the unsolicited. Be ready to greet all guest,wash all your pots and dishes. You may need a red hot heat too. We’ll all have to cook unexpected meals for unexpected guests that life will bring. Here’s the constant in the equation.”And lo,I am with you”
