“And then Angels carried my soul, to stand before God, so I started to question Him. Question number one;……” (extract from Before I woke up)
SLEEP ON EARTH, WAKE UP IN HEAVEN
Been a full week, all I can say is that, the past days been challenging, it has been a sad week for me, for Pan Africans, for the world to some extent and a trying one in the comedy & film industry. Been a hard start of the month, that is Kevin Hart crushing on Sunday (02nd September) in his posh car, got major back injuries, medical reports were saying he is to go for the back surgery. I pray Kevin gets back to normal, I want to see his wide smile again, hope he won’t mess with the fans’ emotions again. Thank God he didn’t lose his ghost.
As the week was coming to an end, Africa lost another face of independence winners, Robert Mugabe, former president of Zimbabwe, fine he died at an age where he had perhaps lived all his dreams, seen a lot of generations change, grew up in the primitive Africa and lived to see Africa get industrialised. He, as a human being, had his wins and fouls, he may have been wrong in his political strategies, may have been right because all he was up to, was to make his dreams come true, just as you too may have dreams and do all you can at the expense of other people’s happiness to achieve them.
In the present tense, there are no mistakes, its only after awhile that we realise how wrong our perception of situations was, its then we start to have regrets and critics. In my life, I strive to being humble always, accept critics because they help me gain balance in my deeds, know my fouls and those of others and still accept them for who they are, because we are humans in an imperfect world. At last, always look up to God, for He is the reason why am still alive, I may have gained my wealth, popularity and luck in ways that are non-righteous, but God is Lord Almighty, who knows, Kevin may have perished in that accident, just like our beloved brother, Paul Walker (r.i.p) did, we would be sad but effortless to bring him back to life.
Its only life on earth that I know, we live it once, the concept of reincarnation cannot be justified by the mere resemblance, for the everlasting after-life in heaven is my desired thing, therefore, how about we be thankful to God for the gift of life, accept our challenges and seek His assistance and guidance in the trying moment, because we don’t know when we shall come to our life red-line.
