Eccl. 5:18 (KJV) … it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him: for it is his portion.
Here are more ways of preventing little things from taking over your life. Of course, this will reward your relationships greatly:
Remind yourself that when you die, your “To-do list” won’t be empty. The purpose of life isn’t necessarily to get it all done, but to do the right things
– Life is a test. It is only a test. When you look at life as a test, you begin to see each issue as an opportunity to grow.
– Remind yourself that when you die, your “To-do list” won’t be empty. The purpose of life isn’t necessarily to get it all done, but to do the right things.
– Learn to live in the present moment. “Life is what’s happening while we’re busy making other plans.”
– Think of what you have, instead of what you want. The Apostle Paul taught contentment and not always waiting for some future event to happen.
Life is what’s happening while we’re busy making other plans
Watch out for more tips.
Lord, thank You for reminding me that Life is what happens while I’m busy making other plans. Please help me to learn to cast all my cares on You and not to allow life’s tensions to weigh down my relationships, that my dealings with people might be more rewarding. Amen.
