Guest Post, Leadership, That'll Preach Sayings
In life.. who’s really winning…
I keep having this thought.
I keep asking this question.
Is it the one with the biggest following? …. The person with the most money?
Or maybe it’s whoever has mastered gluten free healthy eating and is in tip top shape (oh how I envy you)
I keep drawing the same conclusions on who I think is really winning…
WHO I THINK IS WINNING…
1. The one who is CONTENT..
– I think you learn how to be content.
Paul did.. he said “I’ve learned how to be content with a lot and how to be content with a little”
I personally don’t think God makes you content with a LOT until you’ve proven to be content with a LITTLE.
Contentment could be the great gain in life.
Being satisfied and fulfilled with what you have and where you are…
2. The one that loves THEM-SELF…
– Not in a narcissistic, weird, self absorbed way…
But in an appropriate, balanced, “I really like the way God made me” type of way.
I think you should love you… your life, your story, your gifts, your grace, your body.
It’s really hard to love others if you don’t love yourself.
3. The person that lives in COMMUNITY…
Oh to have good friends.
Oh to live life with people.
“Life isn’t about what you’re doing… but who you’re doing it with”
I’ve learned you can go through anything in life… just as long as you have people with you!!!
4. The one who’s in awe of GRACE…
– When you understand this whole thing is the grace of God.. you’re in constant SMH (that’s for the kids YO).
You transfer from a one time realization of grace… to a perpetual state of praise…
5. The one who sees the POSITIVE in everything and everyone…
Happiness is a choice, not a feeling.
Being positive is the greatest weapon you and I have to combat a status quo life.
6. The one who RECEIVES more than they GIVE…
– You can’t out give God.
The person who is winning… in my opinion… is the one determined to receive daily from Gods love.
Long gone are the days where the daily focus was what you are gonna do for God…. #religion
Here to stay are the days where we can daily enjoy Gods goodness…
(also, I highly recommend daily doses of ice cream)
Hope you’re winning.. wherever you are 🙂
