Christ Is All That You Need

In the pursuit of fulfillment in life, technology and social media allow you to capture every moment along the way. You’re not only on the fast track to success, but you get to show selfies at each lap along the way. Which only confirms how up-to-the-nano-second cool you are.

So get the biggest data plan you can, and collect wi-fi passwords at every stop. Check in at all the cool places. Share every inspirational thought you have, and every joke. Snap lots of pics. Get video clips, too, of course. And never stop uploading the whole show to the Cloud as you go.

Post everything online for the whole world to see. Pile up Likes and Friends and Followers until it’s all just one frenzied blur. Hustle until your real life exceeds your dreams. And finally, once you’ve reached the summit, I can guarantee you this one thing: your longing for more never stops. Like the latest technology, your achievements are outdated overnight.

Why? How could that be possible?

Because you were not created for earth. You were created for eternity. And there is nothing on this earth that can ever satisfy that spiritual longing you feel inside—even if you can collect it all.

Nothing.

When I was a teenager, years before I knew Christ, I would hear people say, “God makes a Christ-shaped void inside every person.” I remember that saying annoying me. I remember not understanding what they were talking about. But then one day I learned for myself why they said it: because it is absolutely true. Nothing outside of a living relationship with Christ can ever fill the emptiness of that ache inside your heart.

Your scavenger hunt for success will never be enough. Christ is what you’re searching for. He is your source. He is your strength. He is your sustainer. He is your joy. He is your contentment. He is your all and all. He’s everything that matters.

When Christ is all you have, you’ll finally realize that Christ is all you need.

Christ. Is. All. You. Need.

Struggling To Met Up


Photo Credit: makeawebsitehub

Never before in history have so many people had so much, yet felt so dissatisfied.

Some sociologists point to technology and social media as significant factors in our constant unhappiness. We are the first people in the history of the world who can peek inside the lives of others in real time. We carry tiny media powerhouses in our pockets that let us voyeuristically follow other people around, through all of their check-ins and pictures and video clips.

And if what we’re seeing in the lives of others seems better, more interesting and more fulfilling than our own lives, we feel like we’re missing out. Of course, that feed we’re watching may not necessarily reflect the whole reality. Most people generally put their best foot forward, showing you only the things they want you to see. Photoshopped and cropped, filtered and edited, what we see online makes our own reality seem dingy and dull.

No wonder we often feel so dissatisfied.

No matter how much we have, it can’t compare to what we need the most.

Perhaps no one has understood this better than the Apostle Paul. When Paul was in a prison in Rome, he wrote about his experiences and what he had learned. He basically said, “I’ve gone without the things that I need before. But I’ve also had times when I had more than enough. Life happens in seasons. I’ve had good seasons where everything was going well, and I’ve had hard ones where nothing went my way. But through them all, I’ve learned that there’s one secret to being content: I can do anything and everything—not by my own power—but through Christ. Jesus gives me the strength to handle anything that comes my way.”

You will always battle with discontentment until you let Christ be all that you need. You can chase after everything you’ve ever wanted and get it all. It won’t be enough.

At the end of the day, every day, you’ll still feel empty.

A group of 50 people attended a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and started giving each person a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.

Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their respective names written on within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their names, pushing and colliding with each other, and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes, no one could find their own balloons.

Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloons. The speaker began: This is exactly what is happening in our lives.
Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all over the place, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Help them Find their happiness and you will get your own happiness too. And this is the purpose of human life… Learn to put a smile on someone’s face, and you will also smile in due course.​

L E S S O N : when you’re making others to succeed in life you’re also a success.

Kill Your Ego

Reflect on these words

1.Your BIRTH came through Others

2.Your NAME was given by Others

  1. You were EDUCATED by Others

4.Your INCOME indirectly comes through Others

  1. Your RESPECT is given by Others
  2. Your first BATH was given by Others

  3. Your last BATH will be done by Others

  4. Your FUNERAL will be organised by Others

  5. You will be taken to your FINAL RESTING PLACE by Others

and

  1. EVERYTHING you owned will be inherited by Others

Hmm….. Why, then, do some of us let our EGO, our CAREER, our MONEY and our BELIEFS undermine the worth of Others in our lives, when we are so dependent on Others.

Isn’t it high time we learn to live in peace and harmony with Others, because all through our lives, at one point or the Other, we will need each Other?

Hope you will share this msg with Others.

Meditation

Most People feel when you sit alone, quite and in such a position; you are worried, depressed, obsessed, suppressed, thinking negatively… That’s true but not all encompassing.

I bring you a dimension… Do you know that your place of personal development, evaluation, assessment and redirection comes from willful, careful, planned thoughts? You can’t succeed in life without thinking positive towards the direction of your passion.

Meditation is good! Replace worry with good thinking… Associate with people of insights, knowledge and virtue. People that will make you come back to your closet and think positive not to worry. Information that gives you knowledge, knowledge that enhances meditation. Most a times people will say “allow me to think” “i wanna be left alone” “i need some quite time” ” let me be” “excuse me” etc. Such are good refrains to Association i agree but most of these are targeted towards negative attitude and thoughts.

I bring you a free bibliotherapy… “Thinking is Good, but Good thinking comes after Good reading” –
