How do you prepare?

To break dad’s heart
that his little girl might end up with someone he may not like
or may fall in love with one he does not agree with
or would be exposed to men whose aim is to dishonour his daughter

To give a news to your family
who hoped that something great would come out of your choices
after you told them you have chosen another career part
but it ended up in shambles; a regret?

When you know what you always dreamed about would never be a reality
because you wake up to find out that you may not be around as long as you hoped
Tomorrow is not promised

How do you prepare for a news like this
When you are told you would be awarded the best in your degree
Only to find out the person you hoped would be there to celebrate with you is fighting
Fighting for Life

For a sight of your loved one in the hospital
Losing her hair and being drained of life by her therapy
All you do is hope and pray that she comes out fine

When you are told she didn’t make it
She would not be going home with you
What you see is the last you’d see of her

Often times there are no preparations but to pray and hope
The acceptance of things when it happens
The coping and the resting, as HARD as it may be in God’s sovereignty
Under His everlasting arms


One thought on “How do you prepare?

  1. Hmmm… Heartbreaks.. The one thing this mortal body must suffer. But of a truth, joy follows suffering for the that are in Christ. He set the model. He endured for the joy that was set before Him. So I believe that in the midst of heartbreaks and suffering, we should ask our LORD to open our eyes to see the joy He has set before us, that we may endure.
