“The main wish of so many today is to enjoy life to the full. They plan ahead, ignoring the fact that something may intervene, thwarting their intentions…” from; The Good Seed 2012.
It shouldn’t surprise you to realize when you read those words, you feel like the author was speaking to you. It is common for us to act or live life in this manner and the sad fact is that we usually take too long to learn this lesson or we learn it only shortly and then forget. Well, the good news is; life isn’t about to tire from trying to knock that particular piece of sense into our hearts and minds.
Who am I to dream without considering the limitations? To plan and assure myself I will succeed? To be so angry when I face any limitations or when at times, I’m not the winner? Who do I think I am when I walk in absolute confidence that all will work out just the way I expect? What right do I have to believe that situations will always favor me; money will always be my redeemer? That all these people around me simply must always understand or be there at my call? I get no answer when I search because deep down I know I am not much… Yet still at times, as much as I don’t deserve, it goes my way and I am humbled. I’m left in awe at the bare fact that it is by God’s grace that I live on, and that all goes well with me when it does. I truly hope it is the same with you.
Many are the times when you and I want to believe in our rights and freedoms more than we’re committed to our responsibilities. Many are the times when ‘enjoying life to the full’ in whatever way we feel is more on our minds than is the question of whether we have much of it left anyway. But is that really what will move any of us further on into the wisdom of living a fruitful life? Rather the opposite will.
My main challenge to you is to realize that despite your genius plans, remember to always consider that there is probability of failure and use it to motivate you into humbly pushing hard to accomplish what you planned to. Save yourself the deceit in many of the world’s pleasures and focus on what you can do and who you can be for the best, while you still have today because the bottom line is this; our tomorrow isn’t promised.
I wish you a wonderful week!
