...There have always been times like these.

This article was written by Wise Sage and it appeared in the November issue of YADA.

Too many of us have the idea that it's wrong to enjoy ourselves while we have problems, we grow up believing that if we can't do anything else, the least we can do is worry, act stressed out and be miserable.

This was very timely for me to read especially at this period: I quit my job a few weeks back, got slam-dunked outta where I was living (read: squatting, I'm about as loaded as a penny with a hole in it, I have to end one of the most important relationships (albeit stagnant) relationships in my life. All in all, life's been a pickle for me.

At times like this, it’s easy for one to fall into self-pity and depression, throw you a pity party, asking all the typical questions like;

"Why me?"

"What if..?"

"What was my crime?"

"Who is doing this to me?"

But then I read my devotional this morning and the memory verse was Isaiah 26 vs. 3; you will keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you.... Truth is there have and will always be times like these, afterall nothing is new under the sun. Even the Bible says, 'Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Getting oneself in a bind is nothing new, sometimes even, you are left second guessing yourself as to whether you made the right decisions or not. But the question to really ask yourself is; 'Who am I trusting to solve the problems, God or me?' Forget about who/where the problems are coming from. Remember the Bible says 'All (emphasis being on all) things work together for good to them that love the Lord and are the called according to His purpose. Important lesson taught by the scriptures is that when adversity comes, and it will, we must stay in peace, keep your emotions and limitations in check.

I have learned from some wise ones that stuff happens, you get disappointed and even hurt, troubles will come no doubt but the thing to do is to know how you would handle it if/when it does.

As for me, one thing I know is that there remains a rest for the righteous and my expectation will not be cut short. Besides in the words of a great philosopher (i.e.: Shaggy) if things are as bad as they can be, you can be sure there'll be a brighter tomorrow.

Homeless, penniless, hubbyless? Who cares? All I know is it is well.
