CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK

For a very long time, I believed fulfilling your destiny/dreams/purpose meant achieving greatness in the area of wealth, relationships and the professional life. Most of my friends know how important writing down my dreams and aspirations are to me. I would write down my five(sometimes ten) year plan and proudly discuss every tiny detail of my hopes and dreams.

Recently, I asked myself while I was praying- Why should God answer my prayer? Why should God pick me amongst all the multitude living on this planet? Why should I be given such level of responsibility?  My answer was the beginning of a new phase in my life. From that moment, everything suddenly changed around me. My thinking changed and so did my life.

In Matthew 6:33, the bible says "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you". What do I mean by seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness? Am I just asking you to believe in God, go to church and spend the rest of your life reading the bible. That was my view of Christianity until I allowed God to change my spirit and perception.

A fulfilled life is one of giving, giving, giving! The reason the world is at this stage is because some people decided to sacrifice their time, life and resources. You enjoy clean water because someone made the way. You enjoy freedom and rights because someone made the way. There are so many areas in life where you can grow and take the world a step further. I have never come across a human being who wants to walk this life alone so find someone to share your life with and I don't mean this romantically. You can only receive when you open your hands to give. A closed hand will always have for itself but what happiness do you gain from that. It could be a friend in need or the homeless guy you meet everyday you walk into your local Tim Hortons or StarBucks. It does not have to be money or material things. Some people need love, give your love. Some need food and water, give. Some need your time and effort, give! Life should be about sharing. Don't keep your beautiful gift to yourself. Share it with someone/the world and be a blessing. Have a lovely day:*
