SUNSET

May 25, 2014

Popular hymn writer, F.E Belden in his hymn titled ‘Joy By and By’ made a statement that I love very much. He says, ”o there will be joy when the work is done”. This powerful statement is going to be the basis of this write-up… ”sunset”.

There comes a time in our lives when things seem to be going on very fine for us but suddenly our world gets into chaos, our dreams get shattered and we get a strong feeling that Time has refused to move for us but has stood still instead making us live in what I call a ”sorrow driven stagnant life”. Our dreams, hopes and aspirations are put on hold and we do not know the plans of time to resume these things. We then begin to ask the most popular question, WHY???.

”O there will be joy when the work is done”, Until we get up and do something to correct our present predicament, until we become solution oriented, until we become positive both in our thoughts , words and actions the sun cannot set on our predicaments. We need to do the work in order to enjoy the harvest.

The great philosopher, Rene Dercartes, says ”I think therefore I am”. You might have heard that before now or you are just hearing it but it’s true and I believe it!. Joyce Meyer in her book, ”Battlefield of The Mind”, clearly states that ‘worry, doubt, confusion, depression, anger and feelings of condemnation are all attacks on the mind’. You need to gain control over your mind to find freedom and peace, recognize damaging thoughts and stop them from ruining your life!

F.E Beldon was not wrong when he said, ”O there will be joy when the work is done”. Yes! there will be joy when the work is done. Then we will conquer our sorrows and sadness only when we begin to take charge of our thoughts, gain courage and purpose to live!. Then and only then will we find real  joy as we experience the beginning of a new dawn and the Sun Sets in our lives. THE TRUE POWER LIES IN OUR THOUGHTS.
