Nailed for a Reason

Sometimes life nailed us.

There are events, circumstances and people who hold us helpless.

With no one to turn to, our only last hope is God.


It was trending rescently when a passenger doctor was dragged forcibly out of the plane of a reputed airline company.

Is it a life mockery that you entered the plane as a descent doctor and leave the plane as a patient?

Sometimes we are a good doctor but we cannot heal ourselves?

That we are good marriage councilor, yet we have inner struggle in our relationship?

Is it not we are frozen when we teach others but we find it difficult to teach our children…

That we excel in academics but we are poor in love…

We are a respected servant of God but struggle to get respect from our peers..

Sometimes life nailed us. Sometimes life is a mockery…

And this is the same experience Christ had when people asked Him to help Himself because He helped a lot of people.

He had done a lot of miracles and still people were waiting for more…

He wanted to save many but He cannot able to get that respect from His neighboor.

Because what they saw was His being ordinary, a common man, a son of a carpenter.

Sometimes people treat us based on our seeds but not on our fruits.


We cannot judge the seed by its appearance for now.

Because if we understand what it would become, we can tell what it could be.

I am hesitant to people who only want my fruits but they are not there when I’m on struggle to sprout my root.

Be cautious with men who are only after the fruits but no where to found when you were once a seed establishing a root.


Christ was nailed for a reason.

He was nailed by the disciples who betrayed Him.

He was nailed by His own people.

Our life can relate to Him because in one way to another, we were nailed by our experiences and people whom do not understand us.

If after all the good works, good intention and good service you provided, yet your misunderstood and unappreciated;do not be discourage for you are not alone.

If you look on people, you will be disppointed.

When you look on events, you will be discourage.

When you look on your sorroundings, you will be dismayed.

But focus on Jesus, the One nailed on the cross and you will be uplifted, encouraged and delighted.

May His grace abound in you.
