A musing of Mr Keai

Life is a struggle. I do not think it will get any easier. The Lord taught His disciples how to pray. Jesus gives us tough lessons.

Life is meant to be challenging. We do not have problems, we only have continual challenges. But sometimes our challenges feel like hardships. I wish it were not so.

Now to cope with life, you must have patience. Practice yoga or tai chi, or mindfulness or deep breathing or gentle stretches. Even though I practice these, I do not feel any better.

We must try to forgive, even just a little. Therefore, try to view enemies from the perspective of someone else. Other people’s battles are irrelevant to those not suffering them. Try to take on the larger perspective. Try not to get upset.

To be bible believing, we must forgive, as Jesus said ‘forgive, so your heavenly father may in turn forgive you.’ Jesus also said ‘love your enemies.’ So we must try to apply as much of the bible to our lives. Our sins are massive compared to the faults others have inflicted on us.

Try to find some purpose to your life. Write. Draw. Do yoga. Meditate. Whatever feels good. Jesus will try to show us mercy, but only if we obey Him. Jesus said ‘If you love me, keep my commandments.’ Jesus also said ‘Be ye perfect, as your Father in heaven is perfect.’ Jesus interceded for His enemies on the cross, saying ‘Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.’
