I'm not expert on being satisfied and feeling fulfilled in life. But I know someone who is.. God. in the bible on many occasions it says about how to live your life. Trusting in Him. Giving Thanks to God.:
But lay up for yourself treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rush destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. - Matthew 6:20
- Matthew 19 I would suggest reading the whole chapter. It is to long to write but its very good and goes along with my blog post. Instead of taking bits and pieces or writing out the whole thing. I suggest reading it:) Saves having a VERY long blog post. lol
Giving thanks always for everything to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will God in Christ Jesus for you. -1 Thessalonians 5:18
-Psalm 139 Another great chapter. To many good things to just take bits and pieces. I suggest looking this one up and reading as well. God has a plan for you. You.. yes you. It's perfect and He knows each and step you are going to take in it. Trust in Him.
Now does all those things sound easy? Do all those things mean you will have this amazing life full of no sorrow and problems? Well in fact no. When I say God has the "perfect" plan for you. Doesn't mean we will understand it or know what blessings will come from it. In fact it says if you follow Him life will be hard. You will be persecuted. This thing called life. That you and I and everyone is living isn't easy. If it was it wouldn't be much of a life. I've been through hard times. Trust me I was very very sick only 2 summers ago. I made it through by the grace of God alone. Family and friends were in my life placed there by Him. So when I say life can be hard. I truly do know what that means. Now your thinking well this isn't a very uplifting blog post..So this isn't about a satisfying and fulfilling life. Well it actually is. If there's one thing I learned from going through a horrible illness is.. Life is precious. God can be your strength and you will find the blessings from even the worst situations. Because even If YOU Don't know what the situation is all about guess what. God does. There's never something that's out of His control. Never something that comes as a surprise to Him. That in itself saved me. An all powerful all knowing all gracious God is planning a perfect plan for me. I may not know the steps that I will have to take. But He does. I may not know the struggles I will have to face. But He does. I may not know the amazing blessings and joys he has in store. But yes He does. He has the perfect life in store for you. Live it to the fullest. Rejoice in the blessing He gives you. Pray on bending knee for strength when going through trial. Let Him be your strength. Let His perfect love be your joy. Live the life God gave you to the fullest. Build up your treasures in heaven. You have one life to live. But all eternity with Him if you follow Him. I truly hope Jesus is your Saviour and I truly hope if He is you are living your life to the fullest in Him. If being given a second chance in life has taught me anything it is thankfulness in the life you have and thankfulness in what God can do when you put your hope in Him.
Amazing love how can it be. That you my King should die for me. Amazing love and I know it's true and its my joy to honor you. In all I do. To honor you. - You are my king (Amazing Love) by Newsboys
Blessings in Him,
