UNDER GOD’S UMBRELLA

At times, within a moment of of less than an hour a sudden drastic new change takes place from a glowing hot sunshine day with sweats turning to  the coldest drab rainy day soaking wet. It is on such days the good old umbrella comes in handy. Especially after carrying it in vain without rain or hot weather the day you remove it thinking it is useless is the day the rain comes pouring down on you heavily. So the day the weatherman reassures you of excellent weather with lots of sunshine so you leave an umbrella behind is the day of the heaviest rainfall.10 Michael Fish is remembered in living as one responsible for such unpredictable weather. Yet without advanced satellite dishes predicting accurately, a changing weather condition depends on wind or storms that cannot be controlled by any man on earth. In the same way, life is similar to changeing situations of hot good times of the high life and the cold miserable days of unexpected rain. As the weather conditions change so does mood, health and wellness changes. It is therefore at times necessary to keep on dragging that umbrella around even if it pays off once ir twice a year when really needed. The inconvenience of carrying an umbrella around can seem like insane if seen holding unto it in all weather. 07.jpgYet it is useful to ignore the mockers to hold on to your umbrella. Those laughing may one day ask you to share your umbrella with them if they do not have their own. The irony is how life exactly deals with you in terms of unpredictable situations least expected. Like a reliable umbrella, the faithful continue in active faith and depend on Yahweh to keep them safe and secure in times of need. As long as the quality and durability of umbrella is excellent and strong it can withstand the storm. Spiritually speaking, so is God’s tough umbrella shielding you from all storms and weathers. Although realistic life experiences show storms may cause bruises, falls or wind carries up if still holding onto umbrella during tornadoes.agueda12 Such is life changing experiences that all face sometimes. Umbrellas are also used for dancing as popular song ‘Singing in the rain’ soaked despite umbrella or Big Bang Sheldon sitting on a bench without umbrella. Although these experiences are hilarious jokes, life mimics art and vice versa so can guide you to remember to carry an umbrella. So metaphorically speaking, God is your broad umbrella term representative of variety of colours, shapes abd sizes suitable for each need. So plays the dusl role of uplifting in hot joyful good days and shielding from the rain, wind, storm and snow. DIY-parasol-backdrop.jpgContinue to hold on to God in all seasons or weather, do not ley go because of disappointment of carrying one in vain. It is better to be   safe to have one and not need one or not prepare and be sorry when it rains. Like anything else in life what you put in you get back. Investing in a good durable umbrella is better than cutting corners to buy a cheap one that breaks quickly. So is dependable reliable investment spiritually in God for eternal life.

Yet God’s great umbrella needs to be maintained after wear and tear. By being in tune with God this requires knowing the spiritual seasons of life for your own good and interest so cannot be left to any chance. Another important factor is many different companies make these umbrellas but each person has favourite design, shape, size, manufacturer or the colour suitable for all occasions. Nobody can snatch neighbours umbrella because it is wrong colour or size. Each person is given a right to choose the umbrella as they desire or please. So live and let live diplomacy requires agreeing to disagree even if the neighbour’s garden parasol is not exactly to your taste. Umbrellas also provide shades from harsh elements of USV protection.  A long walk in mall or park bench under sun is impressive with beautiful colourful rainbow colours. 9405636238_ee8269a6be_k.jpgSo God made a colourful life simplified so to each carries own umbrella without intruding into another’s choice. These is what learning to live alongside others is about in life. Nobody has sole exclusive access to God as monopoly so whosoever comes to God Jesus will not cast out. One may not see it so or feel others deserve an opportunity to be given the chance to dwell in God’s presence. How ever God is willing to accept or receive all warts and all because God does not want anyone cast out of His Kingdom. Jesus said He will not reject any person of any shape, size, colour height, age or whatever to be part of His eternal salvation. The world’s events demand each person belongs to God directly by calling upon His Name to be saved. The things of these world shall pass away but God’s love and word shall stand forever. So God recognises variety in His worship even if it makes no sense whatsoever to others observing them. So God says leave the tares and the wheat so He will sort things out in the endtime. Focus on your personal life and family because there is no point gaining the whole world and loosing your soul. No matter weather conditions you just need a good strong umbrella personally to use or share with your loved one, family and a friend. In other words God wants you to mind your own business first before insisting on running other’s lives while neglecting your own life. Charity begins at home so start by loving yourself first then extending love to others in Christ.
