What a Wonderful day we are having today to share a very critical and of course annamazing topic. Questions are being brought up based on this huge topic, The purpose of this is to enlighten our inner mind on our existence in life as a whole. Saving my last ink for this very moment of our lives to openly discuss this as humans and mature people. You see, life is a very hard word to fully understand, why? Because it’s full of many surprises and things we should and shouldn’t do. Now, back to the topic. We can’t understand this by not defining the term “Drive” in a simple term.
According to most dictionaries worldwide and some of our local dictionaries we discovered that the verb “Drive” simply means to control, direct, or maybe motivate etc. Probably at this stage what drives so many people today are countless problems, frustration, pain, fear, unforgiveness,shame, regrets and materialism, that is quite expected. There are millions of things that drive your life but the ones above are the most common ones, let me explain a little further, shall we?.
1′. Driven by problems and frustration: Yes!, This is the commonest of them all, most of us are being driven by this. A lot of times we are always captivated with financial problems, relationship problems, religious problems, social issues and all that due to the society you find yourself, totally understandable. Waking up and having a mental breakdown due to this problems isn’t doing you any good. Sometimes you should just Lay back and think about Jesus, as long as you allow this force to drive you, you’ll continue to remain in it for as long as you live. Call upon God to reveal himself to you and I bet things will definitely work out for GOOD.
2′. Driven by unforgiveness: You not forget or let going of the past doesn’t change the fact that you’re still in it. Sometimes just “blow up” and tell the person how you feel rather than hoarding all resentment and bad things in you mind against the person. Let go of what may weigh you down and take away your focus in life. Resentment hurts more that the person who actually committed the offense cos you can’t stop thinking about the event, you keep playing it in your head over and over again leading to no satisfaction. The only option is to deviate from complete unforgiveness to your creator himself and let him take control over you.
3′. Driven by unpleasable parents and family: A lot of people keep complaining today that they’re tired one way or the other due to uncountable shouting and annoyance from parents and loved ones on how to rule their lives. So many letters are dropped everyday on how to eradicate this problem. Almost all of us spend most of our time acquiring what our parents have decided for us rather than asking ourselves what we want, even as at that, parents are not satisfied. The thing is, you owe no one your life and how to explore it except God almighty. In churches today, my church for example, we run a program, more like a counselling unit where most people are like”it’s my mother, she decides what I do in my home” and all that, No!, That shouldn’t be the case, people are getting frustrated and unhappy because they can’t stop pleasing the unpleasable. I know someone who takes anti-depressants just to calm herself down, will she take it forever?. Set your life how you want it and ask for directions from the lord God and you’ll be surprised.
I hope you’ve learnt a few things today, God is the only one for us.
