In our pursuit of life, some of us do think about death while some don’t. Some believe in an afterlife and live their lives here on earth in order to make it there while some don’t. While some of these arguments are still ongoing, I can’t help but wonder… Life and Death, is that all there is to our existence? Then it dawned on me that there is one thing that is worse than death and sadly, that thing happens to us while we are yet alive and that is GIVING UP…
Many of us have given up because of ‘failed’ dreams, ‘failed’ aspirations, ‘failed’ marriages, etc and we have drawn conclusions about them. “There is hope for the living”, so says the Bible… Invariably, when we don’t have hope and have entirely given up, can we truly say we are living in that area of our lives or in the entirety of our lives? Truth be told, we have a lot of things to hope for, to hold onto, to make us wake up and move on for that day, so at the end of the day, we will have something to hold onto and live to see another day.
The world always gives us reasons not to hold on and to lose hope, but then the onus is on us to have faith because faith strengthens… Let’s not be the walking de….. Let hope rule… Let hope lead the way…
