The Good The Bad And The Ugly


If you have lived long enough there is a good chance that you have experience every aspect of life, that life has too offer. Like my late  grandmother would  always say," There  will always be good times or  bad times in each of our lives. But if you don't get control of yourself or your emotions life can get very ugly". She would say, Chuck never let people or worldly problems affect you emotionally. Because if you do you could end up , loosing your job, your family, end up in jail or even worse you could end dead.  As I child I often question some of my grandmother statements, because I thought that some of  her statements were funny and also thought, that they didn't really apply too me. But now that I am older and wiser, I latter began to realize that her statements had some truth or meaning to them. Therefore now that I think of it , I really should have paid more attention her or her very wise statements. I  remember I would say, "Grandma what do you mean when you say, The Good, The Bad And The Ugly?" Then she would say," Baby as long as God blesses you to live , there always will be good or bad times in your life" . In every-ones life she went on to say there will be trails, tribulation, drama or pain, but the key to every man or woman is how they handle it when it comes their way. There will be some days that everything is going  good and everything you touch turns to gold. Then there also will be days where everything you do  is wrong and you can't seem to do anything right. There also will be those days in your life, where you will feel that God is abandoning you or punishing you from your past mistakes or sins. That my grandson is when life gets ugly! You never want to experience that, because that is when God brings each and every- one of us to our knees. And when that happens all that one could do is cry, because only God himself can bring you out of it.

  Then she went on to say,"when I say the ugly, I am talking about the silly or stupid  mistakes  that we all make that are plain dumb or stupid. When people make dumb or stupid mistakes and they get themselves into trouble.That my baby is  when life becomes ugly. When I gave my grandmother a confused expression , she would say, "Baby everybody makes mistakes and no one is perfect, but when you know better you should do better! She would say, that she really gets very  disappointed when she sees younger or older adults make stupid mistakes, especially the famous people from her own race. What really made her sad, was seeing famous people, who came from nothing and who become successful. Then latter do something stupid, then loose it all because they didn't think first or because of  their own stupidity got themselves put in jail. Some people should realize that if they do not control their anger or their emotions they could loose everything in a blink of an eye. Arrogance,  lust for the flesh or  greed, will  only lead anyone who use it to destruction .

 To anyone who is blessed enough too read this and have a problem with their emotions, bad habits, behavior or evil ways. I have a few words of wisdom that you really need to pay attention to. There is a God, that is righteous, loving and kind. As you hold on to the fact that he is all of these things , remember this God knows all, sees all and he knows everything about you. As God our Father in Heaven sits high on the throne he watches everything , even in the darkest hours he sees you. There is no hiding from God, because he sees all things and he knows our hearts. God is vengeful and he will punish those who sin. For those who happen,  not too fear God, enjoy your good times while they last. Because there will be a time in your life where everything is good, great, wonderful or going well. Then soon as you blink your eyes everything that you own will be gone and your life will become a living hell. Then that's when life itself becomes ugly.

You may begin too ask yourself these very familiar questions, What did I do to deserve this and why do I now have a such bad luck or a miserable life? Maybe because you didn't think you would get caught or you believed that it couldn't happen too you. My advice too anyone who happens to read this, stop allowing the devil or the world to fool you and stop letting your bad behavior ruin your life. Pay attention to all the examples, that are all out there for you see or view. Because if you do then you will find , that even the best , most successful criminals or sinners have failed and then later faced the wrath of God. Please don't fool yourself and think that it can't happen to you. Like a wise man once said ," A wise man changes, but a fool will always remains the same".Change your evil or sinful ways and turn away from sin before its too late. Because sometimes life can be good, then others times bad and down right ugly. The Good, The Bad And The Ugly.
Have a blessed day,
Charles
