Hold on!

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win"

Mahatma Gandhi

Ibikunle just sent me this thought of the great Legend some minutes back and it sparked a series of thought in my mind that I decided to blog about it.

Those words played back some very bad experiences I have had; ignored, battered, scorned, endless battles etc. Those words also reminds me of the words of the Psalmist that says " they have ridden over us and scorned at us, but you have brought us into a large place".

Jesus the Christ carried the solutions to all of man's miseries yet He was scorned, abused and mocked. It's possible that you are the hope of a people and the expectation of a generation and it doesnt quite look any inch like it, because of your present circumstances.

If you hold on a bit, if you refuse to lose your head, if you allow the ultimate vision to guide your responses to the things you are experiencing..................................... You will exceed your own very thoughts.
