Give love a chance

Love is the language of life. It is the one thing the connects us and transcends race color or creed. True love knows no border or boundaries. It immerses humans into understanding, fellowship and cooperation. For centuries, we have been thought to love one another. This love was demonstrated by our leader ” Jesus Christ.” In retrospect, this love though practice by all in some ways, is yet to be demonstrated with the same passion and vigor as had thought us by the greatest lover of all. However, the times are changing and some has tried to turn our society a hub for hate. It is time to use our Human Resources in ways that helps to propagate the real meaning of love! It is time to look at the reflections we see in the mirror and ask the question, where do we fit in the realm of love.

As I started to write this blog, I did not perceive that there would be a moment when we would once again stop to reflect on the erroneous times that is gripping us once again. Humanity is on a spiral down in despair. Believe it or not the culprit is one with whom we are familiar. We do not want to think or call it what it is; we are surrounded by imps of destruction working overtime to create fear and confusion. We are a target society and a nation under siege. Satan is working overtime trying to destroy the very thing we believe in. Are we going to give in to the moments of despair or are we ready to fight the giant that is standing guard holding our territory waiting for us to self-destruct? However, the time is now and the place is here for us to give love a chance!

Changing times has eroded the principle of kindness and is being replaced with abuse, mistreatment and lack of care for our fellow man. We live in a world that has changed its perspective and has corrupted the meaning of love. The word love is no more a symbol of perfection but a thing immoral emotion; self-centered fulfillment. What has happened to the world we grow up in? It is a world of terror where those who want to control the masses is doing so in the name of God; at least that that’s what they claim.

Love can make a difference in our lives if we give it a chance to blossom. We were not born with hate; it is something we were thought as we grow into adulthood. Give love a chance to take us beyond the boundaries of limitation into uncharted regions of unlimited potentials and endless rivers of possibilities. Take the chance to uncover the hidden gems of human self-respect, gratitude and forgiveness. We live in the twenty first century but live like barbarians of the Stone Age. It is time to rise and give love a chance! The things we know about love will make a difference in our lives. We know that love is kind. Love is true and it is not easily provoked. So where has love done, where can we find love again? Where there is love it conquers hate and fear. Just like darkness cannot stand against light, so does love conquers hate and fear. The true meaning of love is the reason for God. He is ready to make a way if you would let! Why not try it now? Give love a chance!!

The Dream

We are people of dreams, we grow up wanting to becoming heroes. Someone that society can look up to. We would like to champion the cause of the poor the homeless and the disenfranchised. Your family might have made a covenant; you would be the great hero they had hoped to become. A dream they have been long waiting to see fulfilled; they have lived the disappointment and now all eyes are placed on you. You were their hopes and dreams but alas their hopes have all but faded away.

Gods’ word said, without a vision the people perish. Prov.29: 18. What is vision you? Visions are dreams locked up inside our hearts waiting to be released. (This is my personal interpretation base on my opinion.)  While it is important to dream, be careful to follow those dreams if they are going to lead us to a path of success. Dreams are important driving force that propels us to the next level of life experiences.

I must admit that in our quest for fulfillment, we are faced with many frustrating moment. With the hope for self-fulfillment, self-awareness and self-gratification, we have lost what it means to be a hero and a leader. We have sold morality for economic privileges. We have given up the dreams of what was once important to us. What once grab our attention, the things for which our heart and soul craved. We progress through time and have now come of age to see our dreams come to pass: We have lost our dignity as producers in the work force and have succumbed to the stresses of eroded humanity and have lost our ideals to immoral, illegal, unethical or irresponsible actions. Every day we hear about it, someone is reaping from the seeds they have sown. They are unwilling to be identified because now their harvest has blossomed while they are refusing to reap their crop of indignity!

In this world, we live, we are progressing in technology but we are taking a backward turn in morality and spirituality. Our young people have become fathers and mothers but could only be qualify as children themselves. They are not equipped with the tools, the moral fiber and daring courage to stand up to society and give direction to the ones they help to bring into this world. Frustration has cause them not to want to dream. The result is a life of crime, hopelessness and now we are a decadence society. If we fail to dream, we are not fulfilling our God given responsibility, we are not living the life of success that God has ordained for humanity.

I once heard someone make this remark, “I have been down so many times, I don’t even think of getting up.” What are we living for, what are our hopes and aspiration? We cannot allow the pressures of society to guide us through a life of hopelessness. Let us turn our situation around by giving God first place in our lives; only then we can find the hope to dream again. People of the twenty first century, let us take up the torch of responsibility and run with dignity against the race of injustice, inequality and misfortune! God has given us a life filled with hopes and dreams. We must reach out and take hold of the promises He has left us. Those promises will lead us to live fulfilled lives with His blessings ever abounding in our path. Live the dream, you can make it to the next level in this life!
