It is the 1st day in May, people had devised an
acronym for the month, MIRACLES AWAITS YOU. You will receive miracles all the
days in this month in Jesus’ name. (Amen)
I am coming a little late this week because of some commitments.
I just learnt something different in a
detailed way during this week and I feel it would be useful for us. I have been
told this statement before, “learn to lose the battle and win the war”. Let’s
examine, war versus battle today.
Battle, in this sense, is not with lethal weapons but let’s
see it in the perspective of the journey of life, which is a struggle. It is a
struggle to emerge as the best in the midst of rivals. It is a stumbling block
to get a job after writing a test and attending the interview, it is a struggle
to satisfy your employer, it is a struggle to change your spouse, it is a
struggle to impress your peers. The battle of life is all about a barrier to a
dream. For example, you will be challenged as you manage to combine schooling
with working, your will have frictions because of it. If you drop out, you have
lost the battle.
War, also, is a tool to test tenacity. War could develop
from the battle but your resolve is to win regardless of the situation. Like
the previous example, now that the battle is there, if you will win the war.
You would endure the hardships and the insults in order to obtain the
certificate. If you drop out based on these tests, then you have equally lost
the war. There are other situations of life that will test your ability to stand
and that is the real war of life. You need to be resolute that you will be the
best, get what you want and even win laurels.
I have made up my mind to win my wars, it comes gradually. It
is not a one-off affair neither is it an easy task. You have to learn how to
stand in terrible times, do not cry over split milk but find a way of getting
another tin of milk. Do not leave your dream to be crushed by others by losing
the battle. It is left for you to win the war and move beyond the battle. When
the battle-line is drawn, the target should be winning the war.
Go and WIN the WAR this new month.
