The most scary reality for me when I wake up each morning is to realize that I’ll give an account of how I spent each & every second on this planet. There’s no insurance, no playbacks… nothing. Once I’ve made a mistake, or wasted my precious energy on a meaningless past time, then that’s it!
I mean, doesn’t that make us feel lost at times? Wondering if we are actually fulfilling our destiny?
Or worse still, we wake up everyday & say; yeah yeah… more disappointments coming up as usual & there’s nothing I can do about it.
And this got me thinking…
1)Why does it seem like God isn’t doing His best?
That’s a question I’d like to pop incase I’m actually given that opportunity to have that one-on-one conversation with the Almighty.
I mean, wouldn’t it be a good idea if money grew on trees? Or rained from the sky?
Wouldn’t it be a better world if poverty & disease was totally extinguished & everybody was happy?
Why can’t everyone have an easy life & just enjoy it. Do people actually have to suffer?
And what makes some people seem justified to have a luxurious life while some are accustomed to absolute misery?
Isn’t it unfair that someone’s life ends without notice? In accidents, tsunamis… et cetera. I mean, shouldn’t they be given a sort of eviction notice & a plan B?
And finally God, I have one major question for you… I wonder if you wouldn’t mind explaining to me the reason as to…
2)Why bad things happen to good people.
The world today is so complicated that one wonders, what does it mean to be good? Because we see good people do bad things & bad people do good things.
And since we as humans have the weakness of judging the book by its cover, we tend to be deceived by outward appearance as the ‘good people’ rob us right under our noses… & at this point, I’ll use a personal example.
In my campus, I deal with lots of bureacracy. However, there are some campus officials that have learn’t the art of “Not saying no”.
They do this by telling you to “come tomorrow” & that “they’re busy”. Yes, they do greet you with big (professionally faked) smiles on their faces yet deep inside, they’re full of ill intent.
To discourage you, to demean you & to crush your spirit; knowing fully well that justice delayed is justice denied & that “Tomorrow never comes”.
And here’s the interesting bit; they make the good guys look bad. So one wonders, when will this ever stop? Until when will the bad guys always have the last laugh?
& last but not least…
3)What does the future hold?
With bad news flooding our TV screens & uncertainty dominating the global economy at large, one gets the feeling that instability may become a common trend.
Infidelity, materialism & selfishness are at an all time high as morals & Godly beliefs are deemed insignificant & old-fashioned.
Mentorship, integrity, faithfulness & trustworthiness are terrestrial vocabularies from outer space for the Y generation with commitment & responsibility phobia clinging onto young men like leeches.
And once again, I get back to God…
I mean, something major has got to be done about the state of affairs of this planet.
In short, we need a heaven on earth. Good economies, transparent governments, happy people, healthy families, & a hopeful generation…
Now that’s life…
