WHY WANTING MORE DOES NOT MAKE YOU AN OLIVER TWIST
At different stages of life, deciding what you want to “do” with your life can feel like a herculean task. Sometimes you might find yourself torn between the claws of wanting more and wanting less.
With the recent desire of ‘Living your best life’ rising more than ever. It is often easy to mistaken people wanting the best for themselves as greed. However, it is important to go for what sets your heart on fire in your relationship, career, spirituality and more. Wanting what you want does not make you an Oliver Twist of some sort.
As much as you might be mistaken and misunderstood in your quest for what is best for you, bear in mind that;
You need harmony in your ‘MBS’
This is not some abstract jargon. It is simply your mind, body and soul. Ensure that all you go after has a way of giving you inward peace that harmonizes with your mind, body and soul. Let your personal peace be your watchword. If it costs you your peace, then sis, it is not worth it.
It should make you better
You don’t know what the future holds for you, hence, it’s a foolish act to save for a time that’s unforeseen. The present is when you can live – and most of us ignore the present, this very moment, thinking about what you are going to do in the days ahead! For now, choose to be grateful for life and appreciate every small aspect of whatever you have.
A close pal of mine once said, if it does not bring me love, money, happiness or fulfilment then I don’t want it. You might want to borrow that.
Let your career, relationship, business, friendship make you a better person.
God is not seated on his throne and frowning at you
Chances are that you might be wonder sometimes if God wills certain things for you. Remember, you can always ask his opinion through prayers and I can assure you that he wants what’s best for you. God knows all about you, and he made you into the person you are. He knows your gifts and abilities, and he also knows your limitations.
Keep close communication with him and your hearts open to Christ-like guidance from experienced mentors and his direct communication to you through the Holy Spirit.
Don’t settle for less!
