where is God when it hurts?

“if only this toothache would go, i would write another chapter on pain”

– C S Lewis

Your world is dark and safe.
You are bathed in warm liquid;
Cushioned from all shocks.
You do nothing for yourself
You are fed automatically; a murmuring heartbeat,
Assures you somebody larger than you fulfills all your needs.

Your life consists of simple waiting.
You are not sure what you are waiting for
But any change seems far away and scary
You meet no sharp objects; no pain, no threatening adventures,
A fine existence indeed.

Then one day, all of a sudden you feel a thud
The walls are falling in on you
Those soft cushions are pulsing and beating against you
Crushing you downwards.
Your body is bent double,
Your limbs twisted and wrenched
You’re falling upside down
For the first time in your life, you are feeling pain
You are in a sea of roiling matter.
There is more pressure; almost too intense to bear!

Your head is squeezed flat.
And you are pushed harder
Harder! into a dark tunnel
Ooooh! The Pain!
Noise!
Pressure!
More pressure!
You are hurt all over
You hear a groaning sound and an awful sudden fear rushes in on you…

It is happening!
Your world is collapsing.
You are sure it is the end.
Then all of a sudden,
You see a piercing, blinding light
A cold rough hand spools at you
A painful slap,
A conspiratorial wink from God…
And woah!

CONGRATULATIONS!!
You’ve just been BORN!!!

hello everyone!

Hi there, welcome to the thoughts of a gelded hercules! This blog is just the projection of the mind and the musings of a right-handed Ghanaian youth, a mercurial genius, an emotional stoic, a gelded Hercules, a dumb sage, a fault-finder, an optimist… and on and on…. (takes a swig of coke) …humph! So you now see what you are in for; such an ubermensch …

hol’up! Did I hear asserting I don’t walk alone?  …. a ‘fanti’ euphemism of saying I practice black magic? Well *shrugs* I bear no badges … for which other youth in Christendom is such a delightfully mixed bundle of all things bright and beautiful as well as things mischievous but ‘sparklingly’ refreshing?

Bruh… fair enough! On the real though, I am here to have fun. No more… No less! I hope YOU have fun too. I created this blog to think and express. Yeah … I have an opinion (not entirely opinionated though). Probably that’s what I would be doing (getting shit stuff off my neck and throwing it out) till guess there is nothing else to broach on. (can’t see that coming anyway) Now here, a little instruction for you… Please while here, don’t hesitate to abuse the share button. Really there couldn’t have been any other purpose for which I added that feature….pleeeaaaaaaseee!!!…. Eerrrm… yup! That’s about it for now.

And like the elders did say:

Any venture that has been predestined for success shows definite signals of promise right from its beginning”.

In other words, this is subscribing to the superstition that, if man will only take the trouble to be observant, he will see in all beginnings

The shape of better things to come
