The things that are really important

When I saw this picture I remembered Stacie Orrico's So Simple. The song talks about how much less is more and how the important things are some of the things you see in this picture.

If there is anything I am praying for now is for me not to lose sight of the important things in life. I mean, I spend time obsessing over how I need money or how I need to achieve this or that. I realised that I forget to give thanks for the little things.

Whatever it is you might be going through, pause for a few seconds and take a deep breath. After that, thank God for the chance to be able to do that unassisted. Also, close your eyes and open them again. Thank God for the ability to open your eyes. Some people have closed their eyes today and they are now blind or dead.

I just want to end with this. Life is short. Way shorter than we think. In our journey to chase the money and live the dream, remember to enjoy the little things because in the end, all is vanity.

I didn't say it. Solomon did. He was the richest man to ever walk the earth.

  1. Definitely some of the best things in life.

  2. Yb, in the rephrased words of TuFace "all na vanity vanishing"!

    We're all in a rush for fame n fortune but somewhere underneath that hustling spirit is a hunger for the lil' things in the picture above. I hope we find the time to pause n enjoy them cos true happiness can't be bought.

    Thanks for sharing :-*

    Thank you for sharing. Ever since this year started, that is the one thing the Lord has been reminding me. What good is it to gain the whole world than to loose your soul.

    However to follow that scripture takes boldness and strength. It means to deny ourselves and pick up our cross. To sacrifice our own wants is to display the true Glory of Jesus Christ. Which is to serve others in everything we do.

    May the Lord help us all to see the small things he is doing in our lives.
