RAINDROPS OF KARMA
I was having a shower on Saturday when this title dropped in my heart. I shuddered a little because I remembered its origin. I read a story with this title years back. It was about a lady whose evil deeds trailed her through life. Anytime she was about to achieve something significant in life, she would feel drops of rain falling on her and hear a voice telling her, ‘Raindrops of Karma. Peace will elude thee. Prosperity shall be far from thee.’ And she would lose that opportunity to prosper.
The word web defines karma as, ‘the effects of a person’s actions that determine their fate in this life………………
I was pensive as I wondered why I received such a message. Then it hit me! And I decided to share it.
Have you ever looked at your life and wondered why there is so much stagnation around you? Have people told you to “appease” certain powers because you are definitely being punished for what you had done in the past? Have you ever felt as if RAINDROPS OF KARMA are falling on you and withholding your blessings?
Then you can identify with this message. Some people see God as a VINDICTIVE DIETY standing in the shadows with an evil looking cane, ready to “beat disaster” into his erring followers.
Yes, God does not condone evil. He teaches that we reap what we sow. (Habbakuk 1:13, Galatians 6:7) But there is the place of FORGIVENESS. God is not VINDICTIVE!
He does not visit his children with RAINDROPS of KARMA but with SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS. He is a good God. Anytime you see the former, know that the enemy has been at work. And you need to CRY FOR MERCY!
God loves you and wants to bless you. When you sin, return to him in repentance for he does not want you to perish. (II Peter 3:9)
So which do you prefer: RAINDROPS OF KARMA or SHOWERS OF BLESSINGS?
Pick your portion!
