Even a peep hole will have to do!
Often we cry when a door is closed to us especially if it is something we loved and treasured. This is only a natural reaction because the hows and whys are not visible to us. Sometimes it is the job we loved doing and then suddenly due to circumstances beyond us we are forced to walk away. It may even be a relationship that we invested everything into, the kind we know you lost the other part of your soul. You know you did everything by the book, you loved, you cared and you worked hard on it. We sit and over-analyse were it all went wrong and still we cannot pinpoint an exact element that made it all go so wrong.
However if you look back at those things years later you realise nothing happens for no reason. Maybe the person you thought was your soul-mate dies and you suddenly think I could have been a widow by now but God did not allow it. You still love and miss the person but it just was not your destiny to end up all alone. Or maybe that job you cared about turns out it went down under quicker than anyone ever imagined and you came out unscathed because God moved you just in time.
The trick in life is that if a door has been shut whether by Gods design or other ungodly unforeseen entity, you better be smart to start looking for an open window, if there is no open window, an air vent will have to do otherwise in the worst case scenario even a peep hole can be dug to provide a means of escape. You just have to find a way out. A closed door is not the end of your life it is just the start to an ingenious mind and achieving greater things.
A letter to myself (Just a reminder)
Sometimes I wake up with tears in my eyes but I know I have to remain strong and I don’t have to ever stop looking forward to the future. I stumble and come across so many hurdles, sometimes they are small and sometimes they look gigantic for my tiny frame to climb. There are even times when I grope around and fumble in the dark, there are the times when I do not know whether I am coming or going. Giving up though I must not. I will hold on tight to my ship that seems to be sinking and bless it with all that I have because joy always comes in the morning and trouble don’t last always. If Samson had strength in his hair and David found his strength in a stone, surely I can take a reed in the midst of a fast falling waterfall and it becomes my strength.
I do not have to compete with my brothers and sisters or my neighbours. Life is a marathon, it is not about winning but whether I have run the race. It says in the Bible I have run a good race and fought a good fight. It’s not about anyone else it’s about me. I will not trade my life for anyone else because I have learnt to circumnavigate around my own trash and know how to recycle it and create a masterpiece on the most beautiful canvas ready to hang up in my own gallery.
My own life is a carefully woven masterpiece and I must not follow trends, let me be the trendsetter. I am not the next best thing after so and so; someone else can be the next best thing after me. No one has to tell me how great I am, I already know I am legend, I stand astride my own history book as phenomenal as I can be. My thoughts govern my reality, so I may take a few wrong turns but one way or another I will get to where I want to be.
I am beautiful, blessed, highly favoured, anointed and no one can stand in front of me and tell me that they are my blessing. Anyone who comes across my life should realise I am the one that is a blessing to them and not vice versa. After all I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I am the virtuous woman they wrote about in the Bible. Whatever my hands touch is blessed, so whenever I feel tired I will read to myself this reminder. When I feel weak I will gain my strength back from this reminder.
Jehovah your name is great. if i were to stand in your presence will i be able to speak at all? You are beautiful and bless me beyond my dreams
jesus said it is finished, it is done. just praise his holy name. his love for us moves mountains. after darkness comes light, after night comes morning
