Let God Be!2011-01-15 03:13:22

Very Often in my Life, I have been guilty of trying to be God!, pray I would, but I took the maxim of “God Helps those who help themselves” literally. May be you do too.

Recently, I watched again the old classic “Anna and the King”. A beautiful story of a strong willed teacher Anna in an alien culture, teaching English to the children of the Siamese King.

The folly of this attempt “to be God”, was made starkly evident to me during the movie, the part where Lady Tuptim, the Kings favorite concubine is publicly caned and then beheaded. You may be wondering where am I going with this, hang on I'll get there. Patience!..all things come to those who wait!

Anna was present in the crowd, during the public canning of Lady Tuptim & her lover. Unbeknownst to her, the King, had planned to intervene after the canning, pardoning Lady Tuptim and her Lover, thus saving both their lives.

However, Anna in her mistaken zeal to take matters in her own hands i.e Be King! (Oops, Queen), challenges the public canning of Lady Tuptim with a very vocal threat of using her supposedly “connections with the King” to “Talking to the King & Changing” the end result. Anna is physically removed from the area, storms into the Palace and forces herself into an audience with the King.

The King, calmly admonishes Anna about her public outburst..poignantly he says...”You Would Not Let Me Be King!, I had planned to pardon Lady Tuptim & Her Lover after the canning; however, with your public outburst of telling the King what needs to be done, have taken this Privilege & Right away from the King.!”.....how telling!..I often in my very human nature, tell God how to be God! To bend to my will, my way, my thoughts, my aspirations...I will try to

Let God Be!.
