As I sifted through the remains of my fathers life I found myself wondering what is this life really about. I wanted to be angry at the things that had transpired over the years. This is the folly of human nature- that we always look for someone to blame for life’s issues. And to all of the issues in the world The Holy Spirit whispered to me and said this life ehhn if people can be solution oriented and just try to stop taking problems into their own hands to solve they will enjoy. I kept thinking about how I myself tried to solve all my issues and the frustration that I was met with. It was foolishness. A type of foolishness that has overthrown the life of so many individuals for years….even to the point of the death. A type of foolishness that is inherited by the generations to come. A foolishness that only leads to death.
At the conclusion of my fathers life there wAs a journey he went on. He was still trying to get God to fix everything and yet Gods solution was completely different. One thing I learned is that at some point we will all either have to work out our salvation or continue to strive against our creator. He will forever stand their trying to get us to understand that life is not as complex as we think it to be.
Even in the midst of our wailing and sobs as we try to understand and answer “why me?” He is waiting for us to sum up the courage to wipe our tears and say I am going to get this lesson. I am going to understand this God and what he is saying to me. I am going to understand my sin and my contribution to this issue. I will not blame my ancestors, my friends, my colleagues, my parents, the witches, wizards, and all the like. That doesn’t solve anything.
Today choose to get this lesson. Choose to follow this God. Choose to understand Christ and his sovereignty.
“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
Ecclesiastes 12:13 KJV
This life eehn if you can just understand God , life , and how to react to the issues of life. You will survive. You will be okay. Life is simple
