Life Is All About Relationships

“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:12-13 NIV).

Contentment does not come naturally to human beings. By nature, we are restless sheep. Yet we can learn contentment. Learning contentment means we stop incessantly grabbing for more.Philippians 4:12-13 says, “I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength” (NIV).

The greatest things in life aren’t things.

In America it’s considered a tragedy to “die penniless.” But what better time to go? If you were out of here the moment you spent your last cent, I’d call that wise, not foolish. That’s just a brilliant way to live and die!

Nobody ever asks for things in the final moments of life. They always ask for people, because eventually everybody learns that life is all about relationships. Why not learn that sooner? It sure would relieve a lot of stress.

Life is not about achievements. It’s not about accomplishments.

Life is about relationships.

“I will change”

Catwoman and Spiderman only exist in Hollywood. And Hollywood is full of fairy tales.
We human beings are not perfect. Funnily enough though, we are always more interested in our spouses becoming perfect, than changing ourselves.
But it’s a fact that I am the only human being that I can change. This insight motivates me to not stand still, but to work on every aspect of my character.

It is interesting that in nature there is no such a thing as a complete halt. Nature is always in motion, either forwards or backwards.

If you choose not to change, you will automatically make steps toward your past. But God has called you live in forward motion.

I do not have to change my husband or wife, but me, myself and I! For once, you may finally just think about yourself.

MARRIAGE-BOOSTER
I will tackle this one thing in my life today! I will change it step by step.
