Holy, Holy,… UnHoly Thoughts

Good day to everyone. As believers, I believe we get so caught up in our desires to live the kind of life God expects us to live that we sometimes forget that it is God who works in, through and for us. Sometimes we are overwhelmed by the Holiness who is God that we try to only bring our good parts and thoughts before God in prayers. Now I’m not saying this is wrong but then I had an experience a few weeks back that sort of just changed my orientation about a couple of things.

So if you’ve been reading my other blog posts, you know that I’m a grace- chic. You know, saved by grace and completed

THE CORE OF NATURE, ALPHA OF EXISTENCE.

Good evening peeps!!! this is something I’ve been pondering on for a while and I’d quickly share it here..

I picked up my pen and scribbled some things onto the jotting pad I use for my histology practical (I’m a medical laboratory scientist in the making by the way) and I let my mind ruminate over what my lecturer was talking about. I knew I was drifting away from the lecture but the events going on in my mind were too interesting to sacrifice. I let myself get involved and just enjoy the beauty of the network that is man. So far in class, we had studied quite a number of the systems in the body and it’s so amazing to realize that even though each system exists

NATURE……BEAUTY

I close my eyes as I lay down and let myself be transported

On the wheels of nature

Taking a deep breath, I inhale the rich scent of the raw earth

Letting the coolness of the evening dew mist over my face.

I listen to the rustling of the leaves above and the chirping of the birds in the trees

Slowly I open my eyes to behold the wonders of the night sky

Stars so bright –oh how they twinkle

Scattered yet arranged in an orderly fashion

A bright perfect crescent, warmly illuminating the earth

Casting beautiful shadows over the earth

Somewhere distant, I hear the trickling of water along a path I assume

I shiver as the night cold seeps into my skin, a smile forming on my face as I wonder and ask-

Question why I never saw this –the perfect beauty of nature

Surely, it must be visible, yet hidden to many who expect such beauty to come with a price tag

Forgetting, like I almost did, that the best things in life are free……

MUSINGS

pearlypel3I watched in silence sitting under a tree, at a group of friends discussing about life and its stress. A guy was trying to make his friends believe in the existence of a life without the stress of survival. His points were quite arguable and his friends argued the impossibility of his belief as expected. Now, still sitting under the same tree, the group of friends long gone, I can’t help but wonder if a life like that actually exists. I mean, right from you first cry to your final breath, you try to satisfy your insatiable wants; insatiable the key word here. as a baby, you’re hungry, sleepy; as a young adult, you’re trying to study hard to create a career and future for yourself; as an adult, you’re trying to keep food on the table and be successful; even as an aging person, you’re trying hard prolong your life span, reduce aging and enjoy the fruits of your labor. so basically, all through the stages of your life, you’re trying to satisfy one need or the other while also keeping your Christian faith- which also takes energy and time, strong. Stress is inevitable. period.

So I’m still here,sitting under the same tree, thinking about the same thing, and I still don’t have an answer. I’m pretty sure a life like that is non-existent but then, I can’t be too sure because you never can tell the next person that would come out saying he’s been sleeping all through the sixty-five or seventy-five years of his life!!! lol
