Cockroaches, scientists say could outlive us. This was after they speculated that cockroaches have been around longer than us.

Whether that’s really news or just some mean trick by scientists to scare us to buy their insect repellents is a deep mystery to me. What we can accept though is that it is very plausible for cockroaches to outlive humans and possibly take over the world.

How so?

Any man, woman or child would literally freak out when they see a cockroach. Most would definitely die when the cockroach flies around. Thus, it is plausible that cockroaches can form an alliance to scare every man, woman and child into extinction. There’s too many of them to eliminate so the odds of us surviving their presence is slim. When we all die of fright, they will rule the world.

Go forth cockroaches!!

Kudos!

fearThe tortoise is another animal that can live for up to a hundred years. Though endangered from poachers, in the wild, they can outlive a human. Thus because of its advanced aged, it has been depicted as incredibly wise.

I imagine myself getting one as a pet and handing it down from generation to generation. I wonder what would happen.

I also wonder what if you could live up to a hundred or more, would you be happy? Maybe your family reunions will be like the congressional or parliamentary proceedings or rock concerts depending on the type of family you have. Centenarians bickering back and forth about who could remember the most great grandchildren or octogenarians act like teenagers.

Imagine if you and your loved one could live that long.

Nice huh?

Who said there’s no forever when you can be a tortoise or a cockroach?

Actually, there is such as thing as forever and we experience it daily.

I might be joking there somewhere, but it is true. Real love really lasts forever and you don’t have to be a tortoise or a cockroach to do it. You don’t even have to look for a man or a woman to experience forever. Forever is already something that we are experiencing as we speak. Forever is what causes the sun to rise each day greeting you every morning. Forever is what causes the tides to rise and fall. Forever is what causes the flowers to bloom and the trees to bud. Forever is always upon us. This is because our designer and His love are forever.

Psalm 136 is one of those long and often quoted Psalms tells us how God’s love endures forever. It is actually a list of things that God has done and can do that attests that His love indeed endures forever. It is one quality that can actually outlive even the oldest tortoise or any species of cockroaches. It is also one of the reasons why God is such a clingy loving God in every sense of the word. He loves us because His love is forever.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords.
His faithful love endures forever.

Give thanks to him who alone does mighty miracles.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who made the heavens so skillfully.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who placed the earth among the waters.
His faithful love endures forever.
Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights—
His faithful love endures forever.
the sun to rule the day,
His faithful love endures forever.
and the moon and stars to rule the night.
His faithful love endures forever.

Psalm 136:1-9

See that? And He is just getting started with you.
