I am GOD. Today I will be handling all of your problems. Please remember that I do NOT need your help. If life happens to deliver a situation to you that you cannot handle, do not attempt to resolve it. Kindly put it in the SFGTD (something for GOD to do) box. All situations will be resolved, but in MY time, not yours.
Once the matter is placed into the box, do not hold onto it by worrying about it. Instead, focus on all the wonderful things that are present in your life now. Think of the glorious winter days, the fact that we do not spend hours travelling to and from work every day (Sorry Harare !) Think of the friends you have, the leisure time you are privileged to have.
Should you turn on your tap today and yet again there is no water, think of the women in the rural areas who walk many miles daily with a single bucket of water on their heads, which must last the family the entire day.
Should you turn on a light switch today, and there is no electricity, think of the countless folk who have never even seen a light bulb, and whose activities must end at dusk.
If you find yourself stuck in a fuel queue, don't despair. There are people in this world for whom driving is an unreachable privilege.
Should you pass by a butchery seeking meat, think of the countless people in the world who might not even have a meal today, let along eat a little meat.
Should you have to queue for a loaf of bread today, do your "keep fit" exercises quietly in the line and think of the man whose closest store is thirty km away.
Should you have a bad day at work think of the man who has been out of work for years.
Should you walk to the chemist to find that your medicine is not available or is now right out of your price range, think of the person who is dying as we speak, and has never even been able to get to a doctor let alone a pharmacy.
Should you grieve the passing of another weekend; Think of the woman in dire straits, working twelve hours a day, seven days a week to feed her children.
Should your car break down, leaving you miles away from assistance; Think of the paraplegic who would love the opportunity to take that walk.
Should you notice a new grey hair in the mirror; Think of the cancer patient in chemo who wishes she had hair to examine.
Should you find yourself at a loss and pondering what is life all about, asking, "What is my purpose " Be thankful. There are those who didn't live long enough to get the opportunity.
Should you find yourself the victim of other people's bitterness, greed, ignorance and vicious words due to smallness and self-insecurities; Remember, things could be worse. You could be one of them!
