“The day when they come forth. Nothing concerning them remains hidden from Allah. To whom belongs the kingdom this day? To Allah, the One, the Subduer (of all). This day every soul is rewarded what it has earned. No injustice this day! Surely Allah is Swift in Reckoning. And warn them of the day that draws near , when hearts, grieving inwardly, rise up to the throats. The iniquitous will have no friend, nor any intercessor who should be obeyed. He knows the dishonesty of eyes and that which the breasts conceal. And Allah judges with truth. And those whom they call upon besides Him judge naught! Surely Allah is the Hearing, the Seeing.” Surah 40:16-20
No matter how much we want that person stricken with leprosy RIGHT NOW for doing us wrong…it won’t happen unless God wants it too.
No matter how much we want that person relieved from his/her post RIGHT NOW for doing us wrong…it won’t happen unless God wants it too.
No matter how much we want that person to feel the same pain we are feeling RIGHT NOW for doing us wrong…it won’t happen unless God wants it too.
Sometimes God just wants to see what we’re gonna do when we are tried. Many of us quote scripture all day long… (me included)Vengeance is mine saith the Lord…forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. But, I gotta say, we don’t really think about the scriptures…if we did we wouldn’t pray that way…cuz if God forgave us like we forgive we’d be messed up. Do we really believe in a day of judgement or is it that we just don’t have patience with God? I mean do we really believe that there is a God of justice? Do we really believe God has our back? If so, how do we show it? Especially when adversity strikes? When we’re in a relationship and something happens that we don’t like…even though we SAY everything happens by Allah’s permission…how do we react? Do we take it to God first or do we want the whole world to know our version of said events? (And Allah judges with truth. And those whom they call upon besides Him judge naught! ) God knows our pain…look how that above scripture talks about “when hearts, grieving inwardly, rise up to the throats” Y’all know them kinda tears that be all up in your throat…can’t even breath…He knows, let Him be our salve…let Him send His tranquility! I know its easier said than done…but its doable and gets easier with time…just have to TRY GOD.
I’m just saying…maybe, just maybe if we tried doing what we say we believed, God would handle our hurt and the ones who hurt us. When we take our minds off revenge we can get more good accomplished…when we take our minds off of looking for evidence in cellphones, computers, and emails we probably could find a cure for cancer or at least ourselves in a better relationship…
