Years had passed since Joseph had lastly seen his family. He missed his father Jacob terribly. Joseph cried at the thought of his kid brother Benjamin. Joseph had been in the dungeon in Egypt for years for a crime he had never committed. He remembered how his half brothers had sold him so mercilessly into slavery.With time,he had forgiven them and missed them too. They say that time does heal all wounds and it surely did in the case of Joseph. Life made no sense to to Joseph but He had never blamed God for his misfortunes. Joseph kept praying that God would one day remember him. Joseph had wasted most years of his youth in prison. As a result,he had very little education to account for. I tell you what; one day when life completely made no sense to Joseph, God showed up. Joseph the prisoner was crowned the prime minister in a foreign land! Egypt then ruled the world.
As David fought with the bear and lion to protect his father"s sheep,he thought that life made no sense. To make matters worse,his brothers abhorred him. They openly showed him that,nothing good would ever come out of him. Despite all that, David never stopped loving God. He kept praising God earnestly and kept writing many letters to God which are the Psalms of today. One day, God sent the prophet Samuel to anoint him as the king of his nation.
Reader,when life makes no sense,hold on to God. Trust Him with all your heart. Do not look back at the time you have wasted; for when God finally lifts you up,He will restore it all. God will crown you with more than you could ever imagine; but you have to qualify. Follow the example of Joseph and David and i promise you that your story will sooner or later completely change- to the best of course!
