- For to him that is joined to all the living there is hope: for a living dog is better than a dead lion (Ecclesiastes 9:4).
Time is ticking; every single second, minute or hour; history is been written. Where do you stand? Are you just ticking away with time or you are history in the making. We are not here just to mark time.We are here to impact lives, leave a mark on our generation and hopefully write history.
Look at a list of a few history makers.
- Abraham Lincoln
- Yaa Asantewaa
- Mother Theresa
- Martin Luther
- Kwame Nkrumah
- Charles Wesley
- Charles Spurgeon
- Tetteh Quarshie
- Florence Nightingale.
What does all these people have in common? They were all great men and woman. They made history. But unfortunately they cannot continue making history today because they can no more participate in life —they were great: they were lions—but now they are dead lions.
For many of us, if we compare ourselves to some of the names mentioned above, we just won’t measure up even though they are dead. The description “living dogs” might suit us, but because we are still alive and have the opportunity to participate in life, we can also write history and join in the league of great men and women.
Don’t allow life situations to hem you in. So long as you are alive, all hope is not lost. You can do something with your life. Challenges and difficulties are a part of life, but those who make the decision to rise above their challenges are the ones who make history and are celebrated.
Whatever situation or circumstance you find yourself, don’t call a pity party for yourself, rise up.
- Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us (Romans 8:37).
