Life Is Like The Show

One day she called me with tears..or should I say a tear of giving up. She told me all the trials that she faced within this few years. She loose her good job, being dumped by her fiancee, sold her car and house and now live with her mother, live in debts and nowhere to turn to. She giving up her prayer, mad with God, acts like an idiot and doing something stupid..and I asked why.. she want the ‘world’ look at her!! Why this world so cruel to her. She had accept all the trials and now tired cause it never end…

what can I say to her? Keep praying and never give up? It is hard to face our trials with our own strength and keep praying without knowing when it will end right? but that’s exactly what God expects us to do. God knows that real spiritual growth can only come from and through the trials that He allows to come our way. Sometimes it’s very difficult for us to understand. There is a great value in any trials that we faced coz we’ll learned the mistakes and to thank God we can start anew… :)

I love this poem (anyway, I don’t know whose author is…cant remember where I took it..hehehhe).

But we wouldn’t have the rainbow
If we didn’t have the rain;
We wouldn’t know the pleasure
If we never tasted pain.

We wouldn’t love the sunrise
If we hadn’t felt the night;
And we wouldn’t know our weakness
If we hadn’t sensed God’s might.

We couldn’t have the springtime
Or the yellow daffodilIf we hadn’t experienced
The winter’s frosty chill.
And though the brilliant sunshine

Is something God has made.
He knew too much could parch our souls
So He created shade.
So God’s given us a balance:
Enough joys to keep us glad,
Enough tears to keep us humble,
Enough good to balance bad.

And if you’ll trust in Him you’ll see
Though yesterday brought sorrow,
The clouds will part and dawn will bring
A happier tomorrow.

I don’t know why I write this..maybe is reminder to myself and as a sharing to all my friends.. hehehhe… Life is like a show. It'll never end...


  1. "All the world is a stage, and everyone has their part.."

    What didnt kills you, it will only makes you stronger.

  2. Hardship before glory.. I read the poem somewhere too, very inspiring. :-)

  3. No one should expect life would be easy,at least i assume it that way :)

  4. Sure it's not a box of chocolates ah? :-P

  5. we must stay cool, especially during this time of susahness, where everything seems so kelam kabut, politic, economy and you name it.

    so go back and give our loved ones some hugs, make them strong

  6. napa bukan life like a wheel? hehehehe..sama jah mangkali tuh kan?

  7. hmmmmmm, the world can be very cruel at times. but then again, God puts us on this trial times so that we can rely on Him, and not on our own strength. the deeper we have our relationship with Him, the more challlenges will come. we should look into prayer as an everyday, every minute thingy, and not only when we have times of despair. but prayerfully, God answers all prayers. it may not be now, it may not be in 10 years time, but if we stand tall and claim in God's name, our prayers will be answered. btw, thanks for visiting my humble blog. drop by often ya....cheers and god bless :)
