Divine Wisdom: The passage,
“You may dislike something although it is good for you, or like something, although it is bad for you” Surah Al-Baqara – QN2:216, reminds those of us who have spent the greater part of our life trying to extinguish fires which, if left alone would naturally burn out on their own due to lack of fuel that, it is for this same reason that older and wiser people, having learnt to ditch their baggage of self-sabotaging habits and pointless fears, now tend to travel light.
In other words, they have come to firm realization that their burdens are of no real importance than what is ahead in their favor.
So let the knowledge that:
1) We may never get to be in a position to correct the mistakes of the past, but we can certainly learn from them;
2) To know how successful we can be in future, we must get rid of the things that are slowing us down and tripping us up; and
3) To avoid stumbling and losing our place in the race of life, we must stay focused on those things that lie ahead; Teach you, this new week even as you reflect on the wrongs of the past weeks, rather than be anxious about the next phase of your life, it’s better you stay focused on the next step and pray for His mighty hands to touch every aspect of your life!
Pray with me: O Allah! Do not leave me in denial of Your wisdom to live a worthy life. When I lose hope, help me to remember that Your love is greater than my disappointments and Your plans for my life are better than my dreams as You push me forward to claim my Victory. Amin.
Good morning. Have a Pleasant week!
