Everyday is a time when we make up our dreams and wishes for some things to come true–our hopes, aspirations and wishes. But sometimes there are some things that we wanted to be fulfilled yet they can never happen as we wanted them to be; no matter how hard we try to push through those things to be made true. We all have our own desires. However, different circumstances can come through which are out of control. Many people prayed for many things yet not granted to them. A lot of people who love somebody wish to be loved back yet their feelings were never reciprocated. We all wait for something to come ou rway but not all will be grasped by our hands. The only reason I can think of is"GOD's will". He is the One who knows everything and knows not only what's best for us, but what's perfect. He assured this when he said, "For I know the plansI have for you; plans to prosper you and not to harm you but to give you hope and a future" (Jer. 29:11).
It's such a wonderful promise for all of us if we would only put our trust in the Lord. Unfortunately, it's sad to say that almost all people in thisworld live their lives in fantasy and dreams... Fantasies where all hopes and desires are gratified; dreams where in they are the heroes and heroines. Those were castles in the air which we know would never take place. But still, we build them to at least make the world conspire with what we want. That way, it eases the pain and the burden that we carry. It conceals, somehow the frustration that not all things are meant for us. And it's the mechanism we do to escape the dark reality lying in front of us. Sometimes, we even deceive ourselves to believe that these fantasies were optimism giving positive feeling for us.
But in this world, we have to face what's in front of us and learn to accept things as they are. We have to bear in mind that not all things belong to us. There are matters that are bound to beyond our reach. That's the reality;we cannot compromise the things that must ensue with what we just wanted. We are living for real, and this world is revolving. We cannot control everything that happens around us, but God can...only if we would give Him the access to do so.
