Is it possible to cheat life? Here is a thing; there are people out there who make hay while the sun shines, if you know what I mean. When they are in power, they siphon money intended for something else.

They buy luxury cars. They live in expensive suburbs. And you looking in from the outside you reckon they have made it. They have made it through money that could have supported businesses and created jobs.

In real fact, it was not their money. They did not work for it. They stole it. But nobody can prove it because no one saw them doing it.

This “no one is seeing me” is a terrible thing. We do it all the time.

We cheat life.

And this is what I want to talk about today. Some people make it through that in a sense that they seem to “enjoy” life. Some people don’t make it. They try to make it but they don’t.

It is like the universe won’t allow them to. It won’t allow them to escape with murder. It seems to say you won’t get away with it until you stop what you are doing. And they don’t.

They don’t want to. And they suffer. And they wonder why they suffer.

They suffer because they are doing what is called “no one is seeing me.” Are you doing that? Are you doing what is “no one is seeing me?”

Are you married but you are a blesser? You are going behind your wife or husband. You have relationship with children. And you reckon nothing will happen to you. You will get away with it.

We may not know it because we are outsiders. Maybe inside things are not cozy. The thing is this, people won’t tell you what is going on in their lives. They may talk about the good things, but not about the bad ones.

And we may glorify them and want to be like them. But cheating has its own consequences. Some want to be successful, but wonder why they are not. “I am doing everything I can,” they say, “but nothing doing.”

They may be trying, but one thing they have not stopped doing is cheating. And unless and until they stop cheating, doors won’t be opened. For doors to be opened: stop cheating. This is a simple one.

But simple things are not easy to become aware of until someone talks about them. And then you ask, “Is that the reason for my problems?” I am like this because I am cheating.

And I am doing this because I think nobody is going to see me. I will get away with it. And yet I’ve hurt so much. I have hurt me. And I have hurt my loved ones. It’s time I stopped what I’m doing. And be blessed. Stay positive.
