Life is simple, stop complicating it

After working day after day, it’s only normal that we start losing our focus about the things that really matter. With so many demands on our time these days it’s easy to feel like we are losing control.Cofucius once said," Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated". Of course a simple life has a different meaning and a different value for different people.

It is easier to shed the material goods and worldly activities of our lives than it is to shed the internal things of our lives e.g. our desires, and all the inner snares that prevent us from knowing and serving Christ.

But it's only as we learn to die to self, that do we become like Christ.  Before we can make more time for the things that really matter in life, we first need to identify what those things are. We need some clarity.

When your life is in harmony God's values, and your activities contribute to achieving that then  life becomes more unified and harmonious for you.

As you go about your day, remember these truths:

  • God always knows what He's doing with you life.

  • Love God and Love yourself. If you don't God you can't love your neighbour. And you can't say you love God if you don't love your neighbour.

  • Have faith in God.

  • Be positive even in difficult situations. I. t's just better for your heart

  • Be thankful. It helps you to refocus.
