LIFE: THE PERFECT GIFT
It has been long since I have written a blog. I engaged on a revamp project and there were a lot of obstacles. Irrespective of those obstacles, the good news is: my book is now available from my website. Please support me by purchasing the book. Go to ‘menu’ click on ‘slhop’, then ‘add to cart’and follow instructions.
Problems, obstacles, hindrances, pain, disappointment etc all sound negative but they are part of life. In fact they the building blocks of life.
Everyone has a story and each story is different and unique in it’s own way. It was never the aim of the creator that we go through pain, therefore He ensures to undertake for us.
In every challenge that we go through there is always a lesson to be learnt. One of famous Bishop TD Jakes’ teachings “Nothing just happens” unpacks secrets of life.
One of the greatest African entrepreneurs Strive Masiyiwa used to sell sweets at school, but today he is one of the greatest entrepreneurs.
When life seems harsh, you must know that it is shaping you for greater things. Some people grow up in tin houses only to turnout to be great builders and end up owning construction companies.
You might say, I grew up without my dad or I don’t know my parents, I went to bed hungry etc, but if you look closer in the situation there is a lesson life was teaching you.
When we grew up we were always a mockery in our area due to how my dad treated us; like boys. He never used to hire a painter. He would get us to paint the house. When we were moved into a new area, we were given land that hardly had any soil but rather more rocky. My dad made us get the soil and fill in the holes. A complete public spectacle! But the same land that everyone despised is now green and everyone asks for few acres. Now we have more than enough land in an area we were issued because it looked useless.
Life can be rough and unfair but you can turn it to gold and even platinum. I assure you of this; the purpose of every pain is purification ; just as gold goes through fire before becoming gold.
Now drugs, alcohol, bitterness, murmuring etc won’t help you. Close the door and ask your maker what to do with the situation. You will be surprised his much ideas you will come out with. He said He will pour His spirit upon all flesh. What looks like is there to kill you, is your ticket to success.
In conclusion; I want to tell you that I was very intelligent in school. I didn’t know what was to fail. The people that were not so good in class some of them are professors today because failure taught them to work hard and never give up. Me, on the other side, when I saw fail for the first time I thought of suicide.
