When life takes an expected turn
Towards what you never dreamt of
Or in the direction of the most dreadful
The dream that you almost swore was a vision from God which you have invested so much – shattering right before your own eyes
The battle for good health and the expenditure on costly medication with no improvement in sight
The death of a loved one who has been at the center of your prayers for several months
You almost swore that particular prayer was going to be answered.
Yet life takes an unexpected turn.
Your biggest fear unfolds right before your eyes.
When you stand to pray, there may be seeds of doubts.
Should you continue to trust and battle in prayer?
Or relax and let things be.
As they say, ‘que sera, sera‘
It sounds attractive to let life unfold in the direction of what or whoever.
No. Amidst your troubles, there is always that pleasant reminder of God’s goodness.
There could be a couple
Look hard – around and within
There is always an answered prayer that could be your focus when life takes the unexpected turn
Do not pile up all the bad stories to make you feel more miserable
The devil enjoys it when your heart is doubtful
Even in the most heart-wrenching situation, there is always that wind of God’s goodness blowing.
Learn to fix your eyes and heart on the good in trying times
Take each day as it comes
Cry if you feel like
Continue praying and make God’s promises your pivot.
The situation gets better and the unexpected circumstance becomes bearable.
