Life is a gift bestowed by God to us. Most people invest many years of their lives living in the past. For some, their days are filled with anxiety, anger or chasing after relationships that don’t last. Others eagerly trying to prove something to someone or impress. So the days become wasted as we grow older and the lost time cannot ever be returned. The page turns over as we move forward at times feeling sad, empty, content, happy, joyful or grief. Perhaps others are concealing the pain behind the smile or weeping while no one is nearby.
“Changing Attitude and Attaining God’s Grace!” by Emiliya Ahmadova
What should be done?
Instead of worrying or arguing, one must let go of what is not good for him or her. Open your heart for someone who would become your most beloved friend and companion. Conceivably you must invest more time with those you love while they are still around. Perhaps you should show some kindness and love towards others. Get involved in the activities that make you smile. Spread your joy to others while loving yourself in an effective way! Maybe some old wounds must be healed. The healing will come with forgiveness and letting go of the pain.
A heart filled with love makes you smile, but at times cry. However, loneliness imparts to you the feeling of emptiness and brings tears to your eyes. Burdens that humans carry seem to be like a heavy load. At times humans barely carry that load falling many times. Yet, making one step at a time they become stronger and keep walking till the end. A few just give up forgetting life given by God shouldn’t be cut short. One must learn to carry his cross till the end. He should live his life meaningfully or find little joy and hope even during dark times. Hope is like a guiding light in our lives that comes with faith in God. He helps up to rise when we fall.
As long as there are hope, faith and love, humans will keep moving forward with God being a guiding light in their lives. He is like the sun that spreads its rays around the world blighting up the earth. Without this LIGHT we will be lost in complete darkness.
Yet, when the last sparkle of hope disappears people give up. At times they turn away from God sinking in the deep dark hole. Turn to God with your heartfelt prayer and sincere repentance. Have faith and your prayers will be answered one day. Who knows maybe when you least expect something good will find its way into your life. Something will make you smile again and warm up your heart. After all, life is full of surprises, and God is gracious.
