Its strange how humans behave, in life just as we have good people so there are evil. As there are good friends, so there are fair weather friends. Be thankful to God to bring good friends that are closer that sisters/brothers your way.
Thank God for his creation, For our creator the perfect one created two sides of every thing. good/bad, hot/cold, bitter/sweet, you name it but in the face of this all does it mean because these exist man cannot do the right thing.
I was telling a sister recently, that the seed of goodness we sow are never wasted. Do not expect the reward from those whose lives you sowed into, for God has a plan for every seed sowed in faith.
Yes! I said in faith, because I have been through that path and the reward of faithfully sowing is great. Many in the journey would make you be discourage and never want to render help again but stand firm .
In my little time in this journey of life, I have been trampled upon, battered, shattered, spat upon and shamed but God of restoration have been there through my journeys. Once very vividly I can recall help a friend through thick and thin with his partner.
Providing food, provisions and money continuously for two years, then as if that was not enough they were given eviction notice from their apartment and I took them in. And they lived with me for months till I had my battles of losing a loved one.
I was in my pains when things got ok for them, and the day the partner came to move their belongings she insulted and rained abuses on me but I had only a few words of wisdom for her “never pull down that roof that sheltered you while it rained for if you do not need it some one you know or close to you might need it ”
The reply was what you think, why would she need my help again because to her she can not see herself returning to me in the pitiable environment she was leaving me to ask for help. She thought it was over but God stepped in and turned it and that was not the environment I was again and this same couple turned and want help but she pulled down the shelter so what next?
