Variety, we call them the spices of life. There are uncontrollable moments that we will feel uncomfortable to some people, some instances, and some responsibilities. At first we will not notice it because we don’t want to feel about it and in defense to that we would ignore it as much as we can. But the truth is God wants us to be faithful in asking Him what’s beyond that uncomfortable feeling we felt.
He wants us to be humble in asking Him a help unto approaching that person/ that responsibility in which we thought it’s impossible to be approached/ accomplished. He wants us to be prayerful and ask Him for his ways not to be dependent on our own conclusions and ignore what’s beyond our uncomfortable zone. He wants us to realize that a humble heart can speak more than any other actions which our hands/feet can do.
Differences may vary difficulties in life of every individual but always remember that there’s a reason for everything.
Some people with superiority make themselves proud at being perfect.
They we’re firm in what they believed in. Their wisdom and confidence has been an inspiration to become a great leader. But there are people who don’t want to think and hear on what others believed in. Some people will find fault from someone whom they think they can manipulate. They point out who’s to blame in every difficulty they find. They don’t want to see unnecessary things in their sight.
They want others to keep on pampering them but they don’t want to understand some people who felt inferiority. They want to be respected yet they confidently humiliate people whom they can tear down. It’s like they’ve sown a chili seed yet they waited for a sweet corn to bear. What you sow is what you reap.
On the other hand, people with inferiority make themselves the least on the list.
There are some instances in your life that made you feel of your unworthy presence. You were in a struggle. You were broken. You want to get rid those unnecessary things you are seeing right now. You want to see yourself free from those people who tamed you. People who broke your heart and made you feel unworthy.
You want something new. You needed an emotional support on your worth. Basically, you want change.
We can choose on what to change within our lives but not the kindness which God has sown into our heart. Changes are good but make sure you change for the improvement of your characteristic on which could help others instead. If the change has become bitter, change the focus of your heart. Let God change the selfish desires of your heart.
Furthermore, I learned that variety isn’t a bad thing at all. Let the chili seed grow at its finest labor and let the sweet corn seed be the sweetest as it is. These two may vary in taste but of same function. To fill what our taste bud needs.
People vary in excellence and it is fine. We do vary in different ways but of the same function: to love and be loved, to give and to receive, to be blessed and be a blessing to others..
If you fail, try again. Failure isn’t the last page of your story. It keeps you moving. It keeps you dreaming. It keeps you planning. And the best part of it, is that you are learning. And instead of complaining, you kneel down and you kept on praying. That’s the spirit!
Trusting in God’s perfect timing in the midst of waiting is the best way of keeping yourself renewed and motivated.
Don’t give up.
Remember what God has promised us:
Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
2 Chronicles 15:7 But you, take courage! Do not let your hands be weak, for your work shall be rewarded.”
Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
Joshua 1:9 Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
1 Corinthians 10:13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
Hebrews 13:5-6 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”
as the scripture says:
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. (John 13:34 ).
May God be praised forever! Amen.
