I know many of us entered this year with tentative hope that there will be a break from last year’s happenings. As we try not to think that the other shoe might drop.
Ironic how many are just grateful they made it. So grateful in fact, that I haven’t heard the popular narratives of “New Year Resolutions”.
Maybe because, people just want a break. And you don’t need a special list for that.
I think people have also come to learn the hard way, that plans can fail, in the most unexpected way anyone can imagine.
I guess, it’s safe to assume that the plan for this year is one word : Survive.
I feel, should anyone mention New Year Resolution, people might actually recoil in angry fear.
This wasn’t the case, for many years until last year’s events reset everything.
It was fashionable to talk about Resolutions as one year closes and another begins.
Now, New Year Resolution is the new elephant in the room, threatening the tentative peace of many. How times have changed!
I will like to say, for many, we have learnt…well, re-learnt honesty, empathy, careful living — rather than the carefree exuberance that has plagued humanity for so long.
I suspect, that we are in some sort of purgatory, naughty corner and whatever it is called in High School.
And until, we get our acts together and acknowledge God as our God and seek righteousness, many will stay in that naughty corner.
The earlier you are repentant the sooner you are released from the naughty corner, leaving behind those who stubbornly want to hold on to there selfish careless inclination to life.
Just in case you’re wondering what the naughty corner is; it’s the virus with it’s different strains and no globally acceptable cure in sight. Rather, vaccines whose side effects make you wonder if there’s any difference between the virus and the vaccine.
If I were you, I would just healthily eat my way into an immune system boost. Further research, in this way of thought will show you what I believe are preventive measures to take.
However, if you trust what organisations of the world are saying than what is right in front of you, then once again, you won’t see nutrition as the way out. Because, it’s not globally recognised.
Well, pray without ceasing. Seek God’s presence and live according to God’s standard. If you still think you don’t have to do that, you have no idea how alone you are.
If you really want to survive and thrive, the Living God through Jesus Christ is the Answer for you and the world today.
