While doing some work yesterday, I turned on the radio and heard a song that caught my attention. For those who enjoy music from the fifties, here is the chorus ‘
Que será, será
Whatever will be, will be
The future’s not ours to see
Que será, será
What will be, will be
This was the answer given to different sets of questions whose answers seemed difficult to predict because they depended on an unknown future. Yet, while I enjoyed the melody and feel of this song, somehow, I was at odds with the words in it.
In my own life, some turn of events in many ways actually for a moment made me think those words true, but there are far too many other developments that tell me that keeping my arms crossed and doing nothing is not the way to go. I don’t know where you stand, but maybe you seem to have bought into the idea that ‘whatever will be, will be’. Yet, how often have things just turned out the way they should when you did nothing?
Like Israel, there are clear moments when we are instructed to ‘Be still, and watch the hand of God at work’. Yet on majority of occasions, we have to do something. Even ‘staying still’ in itself is doing something.
Sweetheart, we have been created not just for things to happen to us and for us, we are created as forces whose actions and inactions clearly influence the outcome of things that be.
We are therefore far too powerful to sit idly believing that ‘whatever will be, will be’.
That my dear, could turn out to be the biggest untruth that keeps you from attaining all that you are created for.
