In pursuit of Satisfaction

You may have come across the memes that roamed all over Kenyan Social Media last week about ‘unakufa’. The designers nailed it with various proverbs like;
‘aliye juu mngoje chini, unamngonja anakuangukia, unakufa’ 😂
Asiyeskia la mkuu anavunjika miguu yote, anakufa😂
‘Dame wako ako na sauti ya kumtoa nyoka pangoni. Anaimba, nyoka anatoka, anakuuma, unakufa’
The final one that left me in stitches was ‘unasema hutapost jokes za #unakufa eti juu uko mature, unazeeka, unakufa’. Well, that is Kenya for you, and I at times feel that this laughter is a gift from God to us. (Story of another day; I mean we have so many troubles to think about, we would rather laugh)

What has made these memes interesting to me is that they seem to relate with King Solomon’s view of life; that everything is meaningless – apart from the Lord. As I think through this, I have made few observations with regard to the things we seem to have so much regard to. One of my friends goes by the saying that ‘the top is always lonely, but you eat better’ and she is very comfortable with such a conviction; She would rather be lonely and have money. Society has taught us live for tomorrow; we study so that we have a better ‘tomorrow’, and tomorrow we wake up to work better to secure ‘tomorrow’. And tomorrow we wake up to invest for ‘tomorrow’…simply a chasing after the wind.

We have also been made to believe that a career in one’s field of study would bring satisfaction. But every day, the Lord keeps pressing in my heart that my career cannot satisfy me. He keeps allowing things in my life that keep proving to me daily that I cannot do without Him. He keeps revealing to me gaps and holes that my career cannot fill. He keeps allowing the bottom to drop, so I can learn to rely on Him day in day out. Sometimes and through social media, we imagine how a beautiful relationship would beautify life. We get into those relationships and within no time we discover flaws that only God can give us grace to live with. Still showing us that we need His strength to stay in those relationships… for we are prone to leave him when we have got what we wanted.

We see people in beautiful careers posing for photos and acting like they got it all. We see people faking marriages as a bed of roses, and few are vulnerable enough to share with you their true stories. Others have believed in physical beauty, sex, hoarding wealth… name them. What have you subconsciously held dear in your heart? What have you allowed your mind to believe can bring you joy? Think through. Has it really given you satisfaction?

What then, shall we say concerning these things? Instead of using hashtags like, ‘self-love’, ‘miss-independent’ and many other bla bla that really aren’t true, we must rely on God. We must flee the evil desires of the youth and pursue righteousness, faith, love and peace along with those who call on the name of the Lord with a pure heart, 2 Tim. 2:22. We must depend on God on anything, knowing we cannot do without him. And once we have made the Lord our strength, once we have relinquished control of things we have no control about, we can ‘laugh at the days to come, having been clothed with (true) Strength and Dignity’, Prov. 31:15

Pursue His joy only!

  1. Thanks for this reminder. Our purpose on this earth should touch on humanity in all aspects… We all have a purpose in this life and I believe it’s not pegged on the career kinda life. Indeee only God can satisfy….
