Giving Up Will Be A Big Mistake

Over time i have discovered that there is no absolute finish line for everyone in the race of life. Our tracks are different and our durations are different. The only thing we have in common is the same empire. For instance, one person graduates at age 20 and struggles for another 5 years to get a job, another might graduate at age 25 and get a job immediately. One can marry a virgin and wait for the next decade to have the blessings of children, another lady probably after having series of abortions in her past, becomes a mother almost immediately after marriage. A fellow becomes Managing Director at 38 and dies at 56, another becomes Managing Director at 55 and lives to 90. What a life!

Life is full of twist, turns, ups and downs and many more surprises and disappointments. Life offers each one of us different opportunities and once an opportunity is lost, it’s gone forever except by the grace of God.

It is up to each one of us to patiently prepare, wait, recognize and utilize every opportunity. We learn on the way. No one knows it all or has it better. There’s a reason we all don’t fall at the same time. It’s so that when one is down, weak and discouraged, the other who is strong can encourage and lift the other person. God never promised that the road would be easy but he promised never to leave nor forsake us. Although life is a competition, let us learn to go easy on ourselves and trust that God is working it all out for good (even if it doesn’t make sense now). I know that there’s is a time for everything but most importantly that “it will come to pass”.

Whatever trial, challenges or downtime, this too shall pass and in due course, you will be up and strong to lift up those who may be down around you. Never LOSE HOPE… Praise God each moment and encourage others in their journey called Life.

God bless you!
