“Haki Hakuna pesa! Nimechoka aki! Mafuta ikipanda fare nayo! Aki! Hakuna chakula! Kumekauka!”
At one point or another this year we have found ourselves in a pit of wander that to some turns into hopelessness. The anguish that slowly turns into anger has been accustomed to us the common men when finances are brought up. The high cost of living is like a persistent stab to the heart that vibrates at a beat of its own headaches. The funny thing is you never really know you are stressed or complaining about something unless someone else points it out.
“Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds?” Luke 12:24 (KJV). A friend echoed these words, why do we as Christians also rally up in complaints. Why do we also cry out to dead ears whereas we know who to cry to? The friend went further to point out that even when things get tougher God loves grows stronger and He provides. We have been in situations that we thought we wouldn’t get out of or even now we can’t believe or explain how we got out of them. That’s the Power of our God.
Amidst all storms or droughts in our lives prayer should be our armor. Colossians 4:2, “Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving;” We all need a lesson in gratitude, don’t take things that have been awarded to us for free for granted. It is time for more prayer and less complaining!
