Topic: The Game of Life (09/11/08)

TITLE: Let's play a game
By Ma. Hannah Sanchez


Letís play a game and letís make it fun. Letís play a puzzle game that aims to stir your brain. I have three questions and may you give me an answer. Because right now, I really donít know whatís the best option. Are you ready?

Letís go!

Question # 1:

There is a place that everybody longs to go. It is a place called success but as how to get there is somewhat baffling. Where it needs to be found and what roads need to be traveled seem like a confusing puzzle with no true solution. Where can we find this place called success? What does it look like? Is success located on a solitary island or is it located within the heart of a populous city. Is it found in the dark corners of a bright colored room or is it found on the bright side of a tired building? Where do we find this place called success? More than that, how can a person recognize success when he or she finally gets there? Does success have a distinct color that makes a dull world glee? Does it have the scent of roses lingering over its atmosphere? Does it have the appetite of a giant with the heart of a goat?

Where is it and how can I find this place called success? That is the first question I want to drop.

Question# 2
A man and a woman stand before God and exchange vows that are to last forever. The reason was of true love found between the two. So there they stand and leap for joy while God took hold of their happy promise. Love is indeed true, delightful and pretty. But why do children suffer by means of divorce? If love is meant to last forever, then why does vows broke under the pressure of finance? If love is securely base on God then why canít forgiveness be part of the promise? So in the end, I must ask this:

What is your definition of love? And what is the marriage vow that you choose to give or has given? Since love is supreme in Godís dictionary, how do we make it completely His? That is the 2nd puzzle that I wish to throw.

Question # 3
Life is a splendid gift all because itís just one gift. Thatís just one life for you and one life or me. Itís a beauty given first on conception day. God is please to have you swimming in the womb of your mommy. Life is a beauty that easily decays with the passage of time and with careless use. Death is inevitable and life must go. All is natural. Thatís the way it is. To Live and to die are rules of a game that must be followed for the glory of God. What is your life? How will it end? That will depend on daily choices and Godís sovereign power. So here I am. Let me ask this question. No need to answer now. Think it clearly.

To die is not a problem. It always happens. How youíll live is what matters. What is the purpose of your life? More than that, is your purpose for eternityís sake? That is the 3rd and last question I wish to leave.

Thanks for your time. It has been fun and brain stimulating. Well, that is how I view it. I really donít know what the answer is. I believe God has the answers but I still havenít consulted him. Really, I need to develop my prayer time. I hope you will too. God bless.

Very creative! I'll play -
Success - doing what the Lord asks of you, even if no one else notices.
Love - willingly giving of yourself to another despite the ups and downs of emotion
My Life - living each day as a gift from my Father to serve Him
Thanks for making us think!

I could think of something to say in answer to all three, but will refrain, because I tend to get into long dissertations.

Nice job writing.

I like this and each of those questions could become another article! For me #1 blessing God daily and this isn't always easy. #2 love is a commitment and too often we forget that part #3 walking in His footsteps!
