Thank God i lost this chances

Updated on September 28, 2012

Thank God i missed this Chances

Many times in life we cry and weep about missed chances ,without knowing what the future have in store. Ever since i realized about destiny and fate, i no- longer cry and weep over missed opportunities because it has always turned out to be a thing of joy later. I just do my best and allow God to do the rest

Thank God
Thank God

Thank God i Lost this Chances

Thank God i Missed this Chances

If i look back at some of the chances i missed , i have no choice but to thank God i lost them. When i was growing up, everyone who knew how to define a cell in biology ,solve some physics problems on equilibrium and could explain the meaning of atom all had ambitions of becoming a medical doctor. I tried my best to enter this "prestigious" league because i wanted recognition but i lost the chance . I was downcast for some years and couldn't apply myself completely to study any other course.Many years later while waiting drowsily in the hospital for my wife to be delivered. Highly nauseated by the smell of antiseptic and a mixture of other fluids.I watched as the doctors moved frantically at the wee hours of the morning trying to maintain order .It dawned on me that this was not really my thing. I began to thank God for the lost chance

My girlfriend was as pretty as pretty could be and dating her turned me into an instant celebrity .In-fact to say she was charming would be an understatement. I would be forgiven if i invent a new word for her "neck-bender" . This is because it would be difficult for any nubile man not to turn their neck when she passes. The worse part was that she knew all this . Men flock around her as flies would flock a mango in the hot African sun. If i say i was in love, it would be an understatement .Suddenly, another man who had more money than i did appeared from no where and snatched her out of my clenched fist . I was downcast,heartbroken and confused at the same-time. To add salt to injury all of us stayed in the same complex. Friends promised to help me kill ,shoot or maim the guy but i kept my cool. Few months later the well heeled guy was shot by another man who wanted the same girl .I had no choice but to thank God missed chance.

Since i had been actively engaged in this ministry for quite some time ,it was unanimously agreed that i was going to be made a pastor. Suddenly ,the intrigues started ,the politics involved made politics outside the church a child's play. I lost out and out of the door went all the perks that were promised to me .I was frustrated because i had already resigned from my job .Things were so difficult that i contemplated leaving the ministry .Less than two years,the ministry closed down shop and i am now gainfully employed .I can't help but praise God i lost it .

When i was young and naive , money flowed like nobody's business .Women flocked around me as if i was going out of fashion . Then to me AIDS simply means the alphabet a-i-d-s and nothing more. One thing must kill a man was my favorite phrase whenever i was reprimanded by my sister .Suddenly ,a business deal went sour and i became a has been .I don't have any prize for guessing correctly what became of those women .I began to have a different view about life and it helped me bounce back quicker.

Things were so bad that describing my situation as bad was to put it mildly . I was on my way to the shops to purchase rat poison to put myself out of misery . Walking in-front of me was this African woman ,endowed in all departments physically. My attention drifted to an inscription at the back of her jeans it read "Tough times never" .What an inspiration from the most unlikely places. I turned back and headed back to my house. .Looking back now while cruising in my latest car, i couldn't help but thank God for the missed chance

When you get what you want ,would you want what you get?Take it easy my friend ,May be you could thank God you lost it .

      Interesting read! I know that God is in control and uses your experiences in life whether good or bad, you learn from it. What we pray for and want (usually material things) sometimes is not what He want's for you and always answers prayers, maybe not what you wanted, but what is best for you at the time. God allowed me to have Cancer, it changed my life and I was Born again, He gave me the gift of life....and I am grateful!
