“She was on the flight… Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737. Why have you taken our daughter cruel world? Why does the air keep snatching our children. Their son had also died in a plane crash 3 years ago.Bereavement is the optimum of sadness in life. When you lose a loved one never to see them again, you feel like you want to go with them to the land of the unknown instead of staying alive because at that juncture, nothing makes sense. You feel like you could have talked to them more, hugged them longer or even just never left their side. Either way, and sadly to say; death is a marked time on everyone’s calendar never to be procrastinated. It’s a sure time and it’s a time that knows no man. Whether you are high & mighty or a commoner amongst the hoi polloi, once the grip of death catches you, you cannot escape. It’s a done deal.
The world is full of vices. From corruption, theft & robberies to sheer strife. The city council the other day just killed a hawker and sadly nothing will be done to the perpetrators. The corrupt government officials have embezzled billions of the taxpayers money and “the matter is still under investigation.”
All these are disheartening…
but this is my take… if the world would have been perfect, then there would be no place for God. We people wouldn’t pray.We wouldn’t value a good deed(s). We wouldn’t even….
Also, picture this scenario, all this life of ours that we call long, in the eyes of God is a mere blink of an eye or snap of a finger. He sees generations come and go by mere blinks.
So thinking within these lines…. I hope it helps us to comprehend a bit about the cares of life. They’re temporary. God is in control & time will heal all wounds.
Most people seek jobs in order to earn a living. Yet there’s the 1% we all keep speaking ’bout. What if we were all in that 1% bracket? Would anyone care to work? Who would serve the tea of the other one percenter? Who would wash the house? I mean, you get… everyone would be so bougiee so no one would be that person at the supermarket or the gateman or the mama selling nyanyas. There would be an imbalance in the world and hence there would be no place for God because He would just be sidelined.
It is written in the Bible, it is harder for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of heaven; (Matthew 19:24).
Cars get old & new ones are bought. People buy big homes then later sell them off. New shoes later wear off and are thrown in the gutter.
Life is short but God is good. God is actually great. Take heart, hang in there. It’s all in Babas hands. He who does not sleep neither slumber.God is always God.
Make a place for Him for there’s already a place for Him, even if sometimes manifested via adversity. He shows us He is above it all by bringing us through.
So next time you see something really despairing, remember there’s a place for God, call Him through and He will surely come through and deliver you from the situation or take you through. Give Him His place in the situation… His place being available could be the reason why the situation is even happening & He just wants you to seek Him. Remember, He is above all such situations. He knows all, sees all and is all.
Sending out love & prayers to anyone going through a tough situation, May you have the strength to seek God & May He richly comfort you.
