In want of Knowledge

The world beseech for knowledge; not vain values enforced by parents on their

brood, or knowledge as handed down by professors, sledgehammer wielding

bankers, the blurred pens of journalists, and the dicey lips of politicians.

 

The world hanker after knowledge; not as strained through our ears by the

boom of guns, debauchery disguised by television, deception disseminated

by enchanters and sorcerers, or knowledge as foretold by the positioning of

the moon and stars.

 

The world yearn for knowledge; not the conflicting theories on climate

change shared by scientists, the erratic and flawed outcomes from scans

and crystal balls, greed decorated by profit mongers, or solution

defying data from straw-grasping economic scholars and bailout apologists.

 

The world desire knowledge; not the semblance of unity in the disunited

comity of nations, or knowledge conceived, shredded and stitched together

by policymakers, or as read and misread by toupee wearers and their

forerbears – the courts.

 

The world sulk for knowledge; all-inclusive and greater kind of knowledge,

the absence of which portent turmoil. Knowledge supreme to the judgment

and limitation of man, rooted in unfailing love, truth, shared and

common existence.

 

The world need knowledge; that transcend the pettiness of pigment,

tribe and tongue, that which will have you do to your neighbour as you

would want him do to you. The knowledge that bond and unify people, devoid

of selfishness, hate, bitterness, strive, the wanton threat of harm, and

undeserved death itself.

 

The world is in want of God; the knowledge that can save, deliver and

reconcile. Heavenly knowledge that guarantee eternal life; not as defined by

man, but by Him who is over and above all His creation. The awareness of

peace in the midst of storm, sufficiency albeit the dinner table lay

bare, assured victory that flows from the stream of faith.  A knowledge

that commence with the functional fear of God; that which facilitate an experience

of the Father through His Son – Jesus Christ.

A miracle on hold

You are a miracle; yes a miracle on hold. Acknowledge yourself and appreciate how blessed you

 are; speak and live your true value. Hurting as the world may seem, you are the hope of

someone. Bleak as it all appears, you hold the key to unchain another’s destiny. Look ahead

 of you; wandering down the road is someone waiting to be blessed, to be blessed by you.

  

A candle dimmed by the dark cloud of life; yet light to the tunnel of the neighbour next door.

 Look over your shoulder, take a demanding and realistic look, x-ray the four ends of the

 earth and give a dispassionate glance at the mirror; staring at you is a revelation waiting to be

discovered. Look the other way, lurking around not too distant is someone waiting to be

blessed; to be blessed by you.

 

  Loneliness reign and hover above, and emptiness like a rolling stone thunders down, a loved

 one gone forever; blown afar by the irreplaceable loss that is the end. Anguish and misery

 pervades the air; the atmosphere overwhelmed with helplessness, yet hopeful in a continent

 not long away is a thirsty mouth yearning to drink from your well of fresh water. Take a

 close look, standing assuredly is someone waiting to be blessed; to be blessed by you.

 

  A cherished union gone sour; the Judge’s gavel slam on the desk of divorce, and the pang of

 separation slice through the heart. Endless beads of salty water pour from the fountain of

 sight; the hurt no one can fathom. Turn the other way for in the vicinity is someone that

 holds you as favoured, saved from a vow that should never had been; someone waiting to be

 blessed, to be blessed by you.

 

  Distinct and wonderfully made, potentials untapped scramble for space within. Embrace

 the fullness of yourself; celebrate the gift that you carry. Challenges thrive daily and the

 rocks from the sling fly across the board; from the exalted throne at Vatican to Bill of the

 Gates clan, living spreads a fair share of bruises. Trip to the sick room or walk the breezy

 terrain of a cemetery; a leveller is none other than life. Look behind you, hopeful is someone

 waiting to be blessed; to be blessed by you.

 

 You are a miracle; yes a miracle on hold. Endowed with loads of blessings priceless and

 beneficial to many; prospects either unknown or underutilised lay ravaged in a field

 unexplored. Spread your gift, the little in your hand share. Successes or travails, touch and

 change a life with your story. Your morsel is a chunk to another; a penny from your

 pound is a lifeline to a human being somewhere. Unlock your blessings; be a vessel of joy to

 the heavy laden and poor. Like an orphan supporting a Orphanage, emphasise your God

 given value and overcome the limitation of challenges. Liberate yourself from yourself;

 refuse to be made worthless by your thoughts and fears. Look everywhere, there’s someone

 waiting to be blessed; to be blessed by you.
