If you are having trouble at the moment in your life, if the future is bleak, know that there is hope for you. It never rains for ever. No matter how heavily it might rain, there will come a day when the sun will shine. The rain will cease.
Winter is usually followed by spring; and after spring comes summer. No condition is permanent in this world. No condition lasts for ever. The tides rise and the tides fall.
The philosopher in the bible tells us ‘Everything that happens in this world happens at a time God chooses.” God has a plan for everyone; and his ways are not our ways. Many times, the things that appear to be going wrong are actually going right; and at the right time the right plan unfolds.
There are many people in prison today who should not be there; and many people out in the world and free who should be in prison. God is in control. God’s time is the best.
Nelson Mandela spent some 28 years in prison and left from there to become the President of his country. He ended as one of the greatest figures the world has ever known.The bible tells us ‘there are people who have risen from obscurity to places of honor.’Sirach 20:11) Yes! ‘Bad luck can sometimes lead to success..’ (Sirach 20:9).
Do not kill yourself because things are not going in your life as you like. Do not envy those whose lives shine and sparkle. You may be far down the ladder but better than them. ‘Many are the Kings who have ended their careers sitting on the ground, while their crowns were won by people no one had heard of before.” (Sirach 11:5).
If you are having trouble of any sort at the moment in your life, do not despair; do not give up. No matter how bleak the future may be, keep on placing your trust in the Lord who has a plan for everybody. In due time, what is yours by divine plan will come to you.
Turn to God in prayer and faith. Surrender your life to Him. Let Him take full control. Always bear in mind that for those who put their trust in Him, the best is yet to come.
Courage, my friend!
