By understanding the transcience of the things we hope for and the things we dream about?

Or by just refusing to dream in the first place? Not sure there are any easy answers....

@ akaBaGucci: yeah i oscillate between the two options and i don't know if there is a balance. It seems that either extreme proves unfruitful. whew i dunno

hmmm..deep deep..these words seem too few for me to decipher...
but let me start from ..my spirit can leave for eternity as long as i stay in tune with chrsit..
..i think its ok..to scream when u hav a dream..its ok..
..now hoping without hurting ..that means u have to achive your goals and in good time..otherwise..i guess the hurting is just part of the hopin sometimes...
.. i really hop i understood you..and that this makes sense...

Kafo said...

@ simeone i feel you on the first two lines but it's in that whole hoping for something and achieving your goals in good time that generates the apprehension or should i say frustration.

when it comes to the third line
each day we live is a day we die, i don't want to go into it too much right now but it seems that we lose either way, in our attempt to live life we have to die we have to age we have to lose we have to scream we have to hurt in order to hope.

ok
i'll stop
:)

what you just defined is called life.

but you know that theres some joy scattered all thru the days and definetly at the end..

kafo....its a good thing someone took the time to create bloggers.com, cos you really need to pour it out. I agree with simeone - its life that u r painting, but we as Christians have a higher expectation and something wonderful to look forward to when this earth ends - that hope is almost palpable and is worth dying for....

...hmmm very short, but thought provoking..

I hurt, but I still have faith, hope and believe that which I desire from God will be accomplished.

I have dreams, yet I scream almost everyday, because they are yet not manifested, but I stil have hope and faith that it will be, eventually, but I have to keep working and walking according to His will.

I live, as long as I stay within the realms of what it means to believe without a shadow of doubt in God. I live because I let myself be led by the good and perfect shepherd.

We are all human, we will scream, shout, cry jump, stamp our feet on our 'journey to becoming' who God has in mind for us to be.

The process is hard, the purification, burns, so we yelp out in pain, but we persevere, for we know it is for our own good, the lessons and the path, and the purifcation and all bring out in us patience, courage, endurance and growth... so yelp and scream and stump your foot as much as you can, but never give up your hope, faith and expectations that it will come to pass.

Even David lamented a lot and then some.. but he was a man after God's own heart...

Have an awesome favour filled week.
Much Love x

simeone said it - its' called life. and its worth it.

How are u feeling now?
What >I meant by my reply earlier - I couldnt respond to ur other post, was that i have experienced that my own prayer only works when I believe it will happen full heartedly. Whenever I had a little doubt (which is VERY often) it never came through..Strange ting..
