Life Does not End in Misery
Once in a lifetime, we would experience rejection with unimaginable level of pain from the people we have once met and cared about and from the circumstances we have embraced because as long as we live, pain and sufferings are always part of life. But time rolls and situations change.
Then one day, another dawn is breaking, the sun brightens up, promising a new beginning, a fresh start. This manifestation of a new hope indicates that life’s misery is only temporary, therefore, no reason to stop dreaming. As the new day rolls in, we would eventually forget the traces of hurt, suffering and failure. Everything becomes bright again. More vibrant. More auspicious. More exciting.
Indeed, life has given us so many chances to identify God’s graces, either in the places we have visited or through the people we have meet. Because life, with all its vagueness, manifests magic, excitement and inspiration, and the more we are keen to understand its vagueness, the more generous it is to us.

As we undergo the process of healing and recognizing God’s graces, we would eventually encounter new people who will play an important role in our existence. They might be folks we meet in the new workplace, in the street, in a holiday trip, in a party, in the most unlikely places or someone we have not meet yet or might have never meet at all.
Whatever it is, they did not cross in our road for nothing; circumstances make way for the encounter to take place for a specific purpose, either to teach us a lesson or provide us an inspiration. And somewhere along the way, something will fall into place, it could be an answered prayer or another lesson to live by. Either way, circumstances make way for a certain thing to take place to let us know that amidst misery, life offers so many reasons to smile, to be inspired, to be motivated, to be cheerful, and opportunities to acknowledge God’s gifts.
There are moments that we feel like being stuck in the corner of desolation but that’s our human side. God is so huge! Larger than our problems and concerns. He always makes things possible. He has bigger plans for us, better than what we have always dreamed of. He knows what’s best for us, where we should be walking, what road to take and to whom we should start relating. Each person we encountered in life is a gift from God, the impact of their presence might be different from our definition of a “gift”, but as we go on with life, we will understand why they ever come to us.
Life does not end in misery. It’s a continuous quest and somewhere along this journey, we will really meet nice people who deserve our attention, who are wonderful, selfless and supportive. They did not just pop up in our horizon for no reasons, it’s the work of God, His precious gift destined to cross our path to be the instrument of a new hope and motivation. Let us be motivated and be thankful with the people we have just meet. They are God’s gifts bound to collide our path to teach us a lesson and give us inspiration.
