Look at the Last Page

Yesterday after retiring from my normal days activities I began to wonder what I could share another time as food for thought especially for those who are greatly challenged by their present predicaments and are on the brink of throwing in the towel.

I have often tried hard not to write on impulse but then an idea struck me which I want to share with you. Needless to say, I like reading biographies of great people ... and it’s because I hold the conviction that as young people what we learn at our early stage in life is more important than what we earn.

I often realize without much struggle that a common denominator among these great men and women is a certain pattern of thought...And it is that, in spite of their condition and the changing scenes of their lives they always kept their focus on the end product of their struggle... and I believe that it is this trait that gives them the impetus to drive them on.

You know, whenever you are reading a book about a person's suffering moments and in your impatience you turn to the last page to read what became of that person, it changes your mood when you come back to continue from where you left off especially when it concluded that that character lived happily ever after.

This is what I want to bring your attention to this week. It is what you think about as you go through your challenging moment that either gives you the persuasion to move on or the dissuasion to give up.

Jesus was not depressed and could endure his cross because he had his attention on the "set joy" that was before Him. Paul was not despondent in spite of his afflictions because he thought about the "prize" that awaited him. Job was not disheartened by his humiliation because he kept his focus above. And likewise Nehemiah not discouraged by the shame and opposition he faced because he had his mind on the end which was the glory of Jerusalem.

The question now is.What do you think about as you go through your challenging moments? And in conclusion may I say that what becomes of your fate (as you go through your struggle) is largely predicated on the settings of your heart and mind.
