CEO, Strategic Assistants, and their day! – Part 2

Read for story (Part 1): https://kaythedavid.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/ceo-strategic-assistants-and-their-day/

So, what does this story actually relate to? May not be the best example, but it gets you thinking.

Let’s give the CEO, and his two Strategic Assistants a real role now:

CEO = God, Strategic Assistants = People

Now let’s see how this goes:

Our God calls unto us to make a decision about our life that would obviously have an impact on us. He lets YOU make choices; which is known as Free Will, it’s promised in the Bible. Knowing that God our Father does have the ultimate say in our lives. He knows what you truly need instead of what you temporarily want. He asks you for your ‘remarkable input’ which is a Prayer.

In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps. – Proverbs 16:9

In the framework of our little story, we see two strategic assistants; which implies that there are two people influencing the decision-making process.

Now relating that to real-life:

Senior Strategic Assistants = Christian Couple

Say, a Christian couple have to make a decision that would impact their lives. They have their feet firmly planted in God. They both think they know what’s best. They both have a difference of opinion. This leads them towards a disagreement. Further leading towards a tenacious argument. The wife’s in tears, the husband’s voice somehow keeps getting louder, the wife tries to lower his voice levels and holds onto his arms. The husband now thinks his wife’s getting aggressive, and decides to push her from him.

God’s watching them, but ‘holds Himself back‘ . He lets them take steps according to what they think they should do – FREE WILL. Also, because they’re both adults, they know how to handle themselves.

When the couple reach a point where they know they’ve had enough. They walk away from each other. They go to separate rooms, and contemplate on what just happened.

The wife starts to question God – Why would you do this to me? Where have I gone wrong? Are you not a God of your word? This is UNFAIR! I don’t believe in you anymore. This has happened too many times to us. Why God, why?

The husband on the other hand is completely blank. He can’t think straight. He just wants to distract himself. But for how long?
He then ponders upon his faith in Christ. He starts to doubt it. How can a God so strong, allow them to be weak? The three steps he took in coming closer to God, has now made him take seven steps away from Christ.

The couple then decide to come out, and speak to each other. The questions that were on their minds individually, had now become something they spoke out loud to each other. Both clashed on the same thing – Why would God do this to us if He loves us? But the question they should be asking is – Why would we do this to each other when we love each other?

Slowly, their “Firm Faith in Christ” turns into an uncertain belief. They walk away from God, blaming Him for all what went wrong, and leaving behind all the good things He has done for them.

…“Why are you angry, and why has your face fallen? If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is crouching at the door. Its desire is for you, but you must rule over it.” – Genesis 4:6-7

This is the problem with not only Christians, but people as a whole – They tend to give up if one goes wrong, neglecting a hundred that went right.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. – Proverbs 3:5-6

“For I know the plans I have for you”, declares the Lord, “plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” – Jeremiah 29:11

“What no eye has seen,
What no ear has heard,
and what no human mind has conceived”
the things God has prepared for those who love him 1 Corinthians 2:9 

CEO, Strategic Assistants, and their day!

The CEO of a renowned company calls in his two best Senior Strategic Assistants to help in finalising an important decision on which the company lies.
Both assistants have remarkable input to the process. Not long before they start arguing on who’s suggestion is better, and why.

The CEO watches them argue, but holds himself back. He knows they’re both adults, and they can handle the situation maturely. Then assistant A gets a little aggressive; he throws a file of papers at assistant B. As an obvious consequence, assistant B decides to push assistant A.

The CEO has had enough, and asks them both to stop. Unfortunately, assistants A and B have their pride to hold onto. They kept assaulting each other.

Disturbed by their behaviour, the CEO now decides to kick them out of his office, so that they could reflect on how ridiculously they’ve behaved.

After an hour, the CEO is less upset, and calls them back in. He asks if they had anything to say.

Both assistants A and B blame it all on the CEO for bringing them into his office in the first place.

So what does this story actually mean?

Will post my view tomorrow 🙂

When God meets those unknown needs

In the emptiness of a dark quiet road,

It’s the loneliness alone on board.

All that is lost is lost forever,

Had everything in it till lasting never.

Every second, every minute, every hour;

Consciousness becomes a worst enemy at war.

Doesn’t it feel weird when your own heart betrays you?

Or when your own thoughts battle with your mind, having no clue?

A river of tears flows from you,

When it touches the ground, the Earth knows the meaning is true.

The feeling of emotions felt no more,

Hatred towards lasting love could only grow.

Then in the valley of sorrows, you lose your smile;

Bring a starting think to your life for a while.

Some changes you wish it would happen,

But fortunate happiness just seem to sadden.

You pause for a glance at your past,

That moment of joy in your heart is vast.

A crave to be happy is when you fake your laughter,

No one knows the trials you’re facing then after.

Once surrounded by a crowd of people all so known,

Your outside person then leaves your inner sadness alone.

Your frown turned the other way round,

So the emotions you’re facing shouldn’t be found.

Your issues get high above your head,

Tears on your pillow, a silent cry on bed.

Self-confidence lost, presence of mind so low;

Confused, lost and feels like no place to go.

In the face of shattered dreams and dreadful fears,

Never ending sorrows cry out with painful tears.

Hopes get higher and split into many,

At that confusing time, the right people, you hardly find any.

Confronting that wretched final phase,

You look up above with a deserving face.

Waiting patiently with much anticipation,

Expecting God to help your situation.

An assurance shall be upon thee,

When He accepts your weeping prayers, gleefully.

A day will come when you reach eternal blessing,

When In God, your hopes keep trusting.

An ever-longing desire that my heart pleads,

When God meets, life’s unknown needs.

Day till night, in His sight

Along the road of quietness,

Step by step we walked.

Ensured not a sound was heard,

Only expressions were talked.

The day was bright for t’was the Sun,

It glared its light so bright.

Patience the outcome, nothing else could be done,

Waiting and waiting, day till midnight finally then came up the moonlight.

Turning everything around to silver,

Upon the face of the ocean, every ray did glitter.

Mirrors on the calm sea, made every reflection shimmer.

Slowly- slowly the white silver sand turned itself to golden,

Daylight shone up, now moonlight couldn’t pretend.

Birds all chirping and flying tree to tree,

It seems like God has shown His mercy on me.

The smile of God like a rainbow was painted,

Among the rain-drenched clouds created.

The scenery around brought joyous feelings,

As the rain poured down God’s blessings.

Every sin of mine washed with every drop,

A new creation in me was brought out.

I pray this prayer will last forever,

My day till night In God’s sight could end; never.
