Where am I going?
Philippians 4 vs 11; “Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.” I RECEIVED a message from someone I know asking how I was and how things are, before I could even respond he told me that things were terrible and he could not see where he was going.
His statement got me thinking; what is it that we really live for as individuals? As I drove to my office I looked at the houses that were along the way. They are all different, but they serve one purpose: to provide shelter.
The same applies with human beings, we are all the same, but we are driven by different passions and desires.
Some want to dress properly, others want shiny fast cars, and others want big houses.
However, within the bracket of where we are, we all have the ability to sustain life.
What is life and what is your life about? What is around you that you draw strength from? I have often thought the simpler one’s life is, the easier it is to get by.
We somehow get ourselves tangled up, sometimes we even trip and fall, as a result of the complications we add to our lives.
Today, think about your life in detail, list all the things you can do without, but you have somehow burdened yourself with and they have made your life more difficult.
Everyone requires water as a basic resource to sustain life, think about all the essentials you need and how you can safeguard their availability in your life without complicating matters.
Within every price bracket goods and services are available, maybe what you need to do is readjust your cost structure to suit the place where you find yourself today.
Giving up things is very difficult, but occasionally you are thrust into a corner where the only way to survive and wait for the next tide is to downscale, loosen the load then continue with your journey.
In order to transcend to the next stage of your life you must sometimes be willing to let go of the things you hold on to very tightly, the things that you believe define and make you.
