Once upon a time, a wellknown painter was finishing his painting. It’s an incredibly beautiful painting to be shown during Princess Diana’s marriage.

The painter was consumed by and excited with his own painting that he unconsciously took a few step backward while admiring the 2 x 8 m painting. He didn’t look back when he walked backward. He kept on walking backward until it was a step away from the edge of the tall building. Just one more step backward and he could get himself killed.

A man saw what the painter was doing and was about to shout at him to warn him when he realized that his shout might have surprised the painter and thus made him incidentaly took one step backward and fell down. The man then took a brush and paint and began to paint on the beautiful painting until it was completely damaged.

Upon realising what’s happenned to his painting the painter got very angry and moved forward to hit the man. However, some other people who were also present at the vicinity held him and showed him his last position which almost made him fall.

Sometimes we have painted our future with such beauty and dreamed of beautiful days we will spend with our loved one. But then God seemed to destroy our beautiful painting when He sees what danger lies ahead of us.

Sometimes we are angry and annoyed by what God has done to us, or we get angry to our superior in our workplace. But one thing we have to keep in our mind: God provides only the best for us, His children.

Jer 29 : 11 (NKJV) : For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, say the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope


Suatu hari ada seorang pelukis terkenal sedang menyelesaikan lukisannya. Lukisan ini adalah lukisan yang sangat bagus dan akan diperlihatkan pada saat pernikahan Putri Diana.

Sang pelukis sangat senang ketika menyelesaikan lukisannya dan memandangi lukisannya yang berukuran 2x8m dan sambil memandanginya pelukis tersebut tanpa disadari telah berjalan mundur.

Dan ketika berjalan mundur pelukis tersebut tidak melihat ke belakang. Dia terus berjalan mundur hingga di belakangnya adalah ujung dari gedung tersebut yang tinggi sekali dan tinggal satu langkah lagi dia akan mengakhiri hidupnya.

Salah seorang melihat pelukis tersebut dan hendak berteriak untuk memperingatkan pelukis tersebut tapi tidak jadi karena dia berpikir mungkin ketika mendengar teriakannya, pelukis itu akan kaget dan malah jatuh ke belakang.

Kemudian orang tersebut mengambil kuas dan cat yang ada di depan lukisan tersebut lalu mencoret-coret lukisan tersebut sampai rusak. Pelukis tersebut sangatlah marah dan maju hendak memukul orang tersebut. Tetapi beberapa orang yang ada di situ menghadang dan memperlihatkan posisi pelukis tadi yang nyaris jatuh.

Kadang-kadang kita telah melukiskan masa depan kita dengan sangat bagus dan memimpikan suatu hari yang indah bersama dengan pasangan yang kita idamkan. Tetapi lukisan itu kelihatannya dirusak oleh Allah, karena Allah melihat bahaya yang ada pada kita kalau kita melangkah.

Kadang-kadang kita marah dan jengkel terhadap Allah atau juga terhadap pemimpin kita. Tapi perlu kita ketahui Allah selalu menyediakan yang terbaik untuk kita, anak-anak-Nya.

Yer 29 : 11 : Sebab Aku ini mengetahui rancangan-rancangan apa yang ada padaKu mengenai kamu, demikianlah firman Tuhan, yaitu rancangan damai sejahtera dan bukan rancangan kecelakaan, untuk memberikan kepadamu hari depan yang penuh harapan.
