Life Experience In A Single Day. MS/2008/13

Published By

I bled, in the morning, from the hurt of the enemy’s sword , which came unexpectedly and on target. I grappled with the tears I could not control, and with the inner wounds that were hidden from those around me. The thirst of the enemy for fresh strike when I was not yet healed of the old was very obvious. My friends saw only a glimpse of the attack and, in sympathy, advised me on revenge. All these constitute my life experience in a single day perspective.

 

So my afternoon was distracted by numerous vengeful options which challenged me to make a choice. Each of the options presented itself as the most appropriate to get even with my enemies. Strangely, something in me seemed to be cancelling any unvengeful option of my life experience as stupid and illogical.

 

Then the evening came and I was misled. I gave in to revenge to suppress and pay back my enemies as I felt they deserved. My revenge and its protagonists made me happy, but it was only for a while.

 

As my night drew near, activities and relationships lessened. I became more recollected and felt remorse for my vengeful acts. To my greatest dismay, I discovered that some people I considered to be my enemies were actually seeking for my good; and that I have offended them without any reason.  For my real enemies, I also realized that I have left stream of tears and deep wounds in their eyes and heart respectively. Then, of late, I discovered that other people’ s tears can neither wipe mine; nor their bleeding wound be a panacea for my healing.

 

Then, I turned to God ‘ s option of love and forgiveness. It baffled me to recognize that God has stood at the door my heart knocking for the whole day (Rev.4:20). How grateful I am, that God waited so long for my conversion; that though I lost the way at some points, I am now closing my eyes gradually in His love full of hope that I will wake up next morning in the company of the saints. Then my life experience of celestial joy will continue,not in single days but, in eternity.

    Nice one Fr William; indeed the option to forgive and love are first and foremost for the good of the subject. Unfortunately we most times solely think we are being charitable to our fellows when we forgive and love them.

    I have been browsing on-line more than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours.
    It is pretty price sufficient for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content material as
    you did, the web can be a lot more helpful than ever before.
