Divine Wisdom: The passage, “Be not weary and fainthearted, crying for peace, when you should be uppermost: for Allah is with you and will never put you to loss…” Surah Muhammad – Q47:35, reminds those who, because they never feel at peace unless they have everything figured out, tend to be anxious, restless, nervous, worried, and grouchy that, like the old man who when asked what had robbed him of joy in his life replied, ‘Things that never happened’! Beloved, almost 99 per cent of the things we worry about don’t happen.
In other words, worry is wasting today’s time and cluttering up tomorrow’s opportunities with yesterday’s troubles.
So let the knowledge that:
1) Faith is a more powerful force that creates positive circumstances; and
2) Life goes better when we decide to stand on God’s Word and trust Him to take care of us;
Teach you to stop trying to control every possible outcome and instead, ‘Thank God It’s Friday’!
Pray with me: O Allah! Thank You for the lease of another day, grant me the grace to graciously pass through each day, each moment in the fulfillment of my dreams. Amin.
Good morning. Barka Jumah and a fabulous weekend ahead!
