Over time I have discovered there is no absolute finish line for everyone in the race of life. Our tracks and durations are different. The only thing we have in common is the same empire. For instance, one person may graduate at the age 20 and will struggle for another 5 years to get a job.
Another might graduate at 25 and may get a job immediately. One can marry a virgin and wait for the next decade to have the blessings of children, another may have had series of abortions in her past but will become a mother almost immediately after marriage.
A fellow may become an MD at 38 and die at 56. Another may become MD at 55 and live to be 90.
What a life! Life is full of twists, turns, ups and downs, many surprises and disappointments. Life offers each one of us different opportunities and once an opportunity is lost, it’s gone forever.
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 is a reason why 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 the good (even if it doesn’t make sense now).
I know there is a time for everything but most importantly that ” t will come to pass “. Whatever trials, challenges or down time, this too shall pass and in due course, you will be up and strong again to lift up those who maybe down around you.
No matter the hard times we go through, let’s always remember that nothing good comes easy. The beginner is not the owner but the finisher—that is why there is a reason for a season.
Let us remain strong and fight on till destiny finally smiles at us. Thank you all and I wish u all a Happy New Year…
