And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful.
- Colossians 3:15 (King James version of The Bible
Hmmm… how do I begin? Here we go …
Considering the situation where the entire nation is in right now, one might find it difficult to see things in a different perspective.
Yes, there are people who are now in dire situation, some are backed up against the wall, don’t know what to do anymore.
From pandemic to the destruction brought about by the strong typhoon that just passed by not so long ago, some lost their home and livelihood.
How do we go from here?
Let me appeal to the inner senses. Let us stop and think for a while.
In the morning, when you wake up, you rip yourself out from bed, it entails strength to do it.
You feel pain? It means that you are alive.
Complaining that you have plenty of dishes to wash? It means that you had meals and drinks that you consumed.
High maintenance cost of automotive? Guess what? It is because you have a vehicle no matter what simple or grand it is, the important thing is that it can bring you from point a to b (even to z)
The job that you are complaining about is the very job that others would like to have.
The children who are exhausting you are the gifts that others are wishing for, for the longest time.
The house that you are living, no matter how cluttered it is (sometimes) is someone’s wish to have.
The people that that you welcome into your life and even those you said goodbye to, no matter how painful it is to let go, are memories of experiences and relationships that you would remember and will remain in your heart and mind.
And so on …
No matter how difficult your situation you are right now, remember that there is always hope in GOD, that someday, it will be better.
Thank GOD for everything.
