If only it was easy to predict how other people would react given a particular scenario..I suppose everything will be a lot better. But then again, the thrill of not knowing what will happen will be gone — and so whatever is meant to happen loses half of what it was intended to be. That is why the future, or even just tomorrow, is so enticing. You’ll never know what you’re gonna get no matter how hard you plan and control things, there will be some that are just out of your hands.
How easy it is to say que sera or pray fervently the Lord’s prayer and ask that His will be done. But in reality, most of us are control freaks that desperately hold on to the things of this world that we think will make us happy. After all, who else would know better what will make us happy than our very selves right? Wrong. What we think will make us happy may not even measure up to what God has planned to make us happy. And so it is futile to try to predict and sneak a peek at what the future has in store for us. We just have to have faith in God and in ourselves that everything will work out for the best.
