“I Never Knew You…”
Me? Nay! You won’t catch me claiming such amazing powers! At one point of my life, when I was trying life as I saw fit to live, yes, I whine and whine because others were highly honored for their power to cast out demons and such, but! Father paid no mind to my whining.
Now? No way I want to hear those four most horrible words. But! I don’t have to worry about that. Why? Despite all my whining Father has not given me such powers or commonly called, ‘gifts’ to quote our Brother Paul. I don’t even have a power to kill that roach that came to intrude in my little piece of heaven the other morning. I think Father got rid of it as I asked Him to do. I do not see it anymore. Guess that’s my point, you think, dear reader?
My point? Let my Father to do the rest in Ahmad’s life. Let my Father do the rest in all His children’s lives. This I know because my Father chose to teach it to me on His time not mine. Let my Father teach to all on His time not mine. This I know:
The words of the wise are like prodding goads, and firmly fixed [in the mind] like nails are the collected sayings which are given [as proceeding] from one Shepherd. But about going further [than the words given by one Shepherd], my son, be warned. Of making many books there is no end [so do not believe everything you read], and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
All has been heard; the end of the matter is:
- Fear the Almighty [revere and worship Him, knowing that He is].
- Keep His commandments
- For this is the whole of man [the full, original purpose of his creation
- The object of Almighty Yahuwah’s providence.
- The root of character
- The foundation of all happiness
- The adjustment to all inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun and the whole duty for every man
- For the Almighty shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it is good or evil.

Father? Perhaps I need to see things for what they are. I am just realizing the state and condition of the people You have placed in my path. I continue to think the best about people, but! in doing so I am only thinking of the best I expect from them. Another snare in my path! And no sign to comfort me anywhere. Maybe I should take a break. I just don’t know how to stop all those lofty expectations of mine. Unless You intervene? I am stuck! I had enough of expecting for the best!
