If you say that something is questionable, you mean that it is not completely honest, reasonable, or acceptable. This has been a challenging time for us all. Compare.thought-provoking… .

No,  I am not talking about political matters. Most of my fellow columnists are doing it already. More than enough. I’m talking about times of darkness. Times, where the whole world seems to be against you and me. No, I am not talking about corruption. That’s already too much. That’s what many people, who believe and trust in a new beginning, are talking about. 

Allow me to become very personal. I remember difficult, problematic and questionable times in my life and surroundings, where I almost lost all my strength to get down to work on those problems. Life’s path became narrow. Fears grow: it’s enough, it’s enough! I am talking about personal matters. But, I also observe my people around me. We are all, yes, please count me in, we are all starting to become awkward and jerky. I am reluctant against the good ideas othes. I felt driven into a corner. Everything seems to have become a problem. Our voices bellow and our groans are becoming louder and louder. 

Creating the life you want and dealing with uncertainty is not an overnight event. It’s in the little things. It’s having a vision. It’s making it compelling. It’s seeing it and feeling it with absolute emotion. It’s caring about other people. It’s calling to say “I love you” for no reason. It’s about taking every opportunity to connect. To be playful. To honor and cherish your loved ones.

In my personal case, I suddenly experienced how God put me into life’s “reconversion plant” and freshened me up: little but meaningful AND important cares suddenly happened. After a hot day and a refreshing thunderstorm we might be able to enjoy the following day and night. The person, who insulted us, apologized suddenly; the illness wiped out.

“You prepare a banquet for me, where all my enemies can see me!” (Psalm 23:5). I am glad. I really don’t know about more and new spitefulness through my next “enemy on duty” in the near future. I don’t even want to know it. I learned that negativism blocks life and its plans.

Sad to say, but many people are not in the mood to follow Christ’s advice…!
