Do you like being surprised? My friends and I have the habit of giving our friends a surprise birthday celebration. We've been doing this for I think 3 years. And you know what makes it amazing, the celebrant will still be surprised even though we've been doing it regularly.
Why am I saying this? Because, life itself have a lot of surprises which I chose to call "suddenlies", " The Suddenlies of Life". And even though, we constantly experience this suddenlies we just can't help but still be surprised. Why? Because of the element of the unknown.
But, there is something you have to know about surprises. Though there is an element of being unknown it is well planned. No one does a surprise without initially planning it. During the planning phase, we usually identify the steps to be taken to perform the surprise and the desired result. Of course, our desired result is that the person will be shocked and glad.
In life, believe it or not, our suddenlies are well planned by God. It was orchestrated by the greatest and the best writer of all. What only varies is our reaction. Since God gave us the freedom to choose what to feel, He will not control our reaction to the suddenlies. But knowing the nature of God, His desire is that in every suddenlies we still have the attitude of worship and still praising and glorifying Him. This is then a question you have to ask yourself, am I worshipping God even if the suddenlies is in the form of problems or troubles?
Suddenlies will surely happen but it is your heart that matters most to God. What would you then do when these suddenlies happen to you? Would you be like Job who still worshipped God?
