THINGS ARE NOT ALWAYS WHAT THEY SEEM

hmmmmm....




A guy met one of his school mates several years after school and he could not believe his eyes; his friend was driving one of the latest sleek Mercedes Benz cars. He went home feeling awful and very disappointed in himself. He thought he was a failure.

What he didn't know was that his friend was a driver and had been sent on an errand with his boss's car!

Rosemary nagged her husband always for not being romantic. She accused him of not getting down to open the car door for her as her friend Jane's husband did when he dropped her off at work.

What Rosemary didn't know was that Jane's husband's car had a faulty door that could only be opened from the outside!

Sampson's wife went to visit one of her long time friends and was very troubled for seeing the 3 lovely children of her friend playing around. Her problem was that she had only one child and has been struggling to conceive for the past five years.

What she didn't know was that one of those children who was the biological child of her friend had sickle cell and had just a year to live; the other two are adopted!
Life does not have a universal measuring tool; so create yours and use it.
Looking at people and comparing yourself with them will not make you better but bitter.
If you knew the sort of load the camel carries, you wouldn't ask why it takes those gentle strides.

So be thankful to God for what you have and enjoy it. You never know, someone may earnestly be praying for what you don't appreciate but take for granted.


Have a lovely day!

    3. One has to be really grateful indeed. I was so touched when my mother in law told me this morning that she is really suprise at me. That upon all the miracles God has being doing for me I woke and couldn't even say thank you Lord. I really felt ashamed cos trully God has being awesome in so so many ways. Lord please I am sorry and I just want to use this opportunity to say THANK YOU LORD.

    1. Whenever I need a hug from Jesus,all I need to do is pick up the bible,read and while reading it,I will feel His warm embrace. There is this divine joy and presence that overwhelms you whenever you are reading the bible.
      Try it and you will experience it too.

  26. I learned this a while ago. Even the Bible says the battle isnt to the strong, race to the swift, bread to the wise. In matters of destiny, overtaking is allowed.
    Just be happy with your situation, make the best out of it while you work towards being better.

  30. So true,but sometimes you need to look at where your mates and make sure you're not lagging behind.Not necessarily to envy them or feel bad about what you've not achieved yet,but for motivation.

    2. Sassy I agree with you 101%. Yes don't compare, but the reason why we hv contemporaries is to remind us when we need to change prayer point oh! #IMO you can't be praying for admission for BSc when your mates are thinking of careeer enhancement. That means there's a problem and the witch in your village must die

  41. In as much as we should be grateful I do not think it should be attached to "what you see may not be what it is". We need to learn to celebrate with others in addition to enjoying ours. I do not have a child; this does not mean that when I see my friend with her kids I should start thinking that what I am seeing may not be all that; I should be able to bless them and also praise God for what he is going to do for me. Let us learn to genuinely be happy for others and also wish same for ourselves
