I hope you have because I think we all need at least one secret to life. I have found 7 Real Secrets to Life: LISTEN, READ, LOVE, FIGHT, BELIEVE, LIVE & PRAY. They all center on God and help me keep centered on God. They are very simple because God means life to be so very simple. The problem is that we can’t help but complicate life. I struggled with life for so many years until I found these 7 simple Secrets to Life. I still struggle on occasion because life has its unexpected twists and turns. However, these 7 Secrets to Life help keep me focused on the straight, simpler path of life. If you don’t have at least one secret to life, I hope these will help.
LISTEN to God because he is calling you to a unique, special purpose in life. Yes, you are special, made in the image and likeness of God. He loves you as much as every other human on this planet. You just need to take some time out of your busy day to LISTEN.
READ the Bible because it has answers and gives comfort. It is our God-given handbook on life. Just trying dusting it off and giving it a slow, thoughtful READ.
LOVE simply because God is love and he commands us to LOVE. In order to feel God’s love for you, you need to let his love flow through you to others. LOVE by letting God’s love flow through you touch others.
FIGHT the devil because evil is a reality all around us. It is nothing to fear—moving closer to God pushes back the devil. It may sound strange to talk about love and fighting in the same context but the best way to FIGHT is to LOVE.
BELIEVE that God made you and is in you. You can do amazing things if you just tap into the power of God within you. Doubt is a cancer that eats away at faith. BELIEVE so passionately that doubt, which the devil whispers in your ear, fades away.
LIVE this life knowing that eternity is right around the corner. If you live this life in love you have the promise of everlasting life. The choices you make in this life determine what happens after this life. This life becomes so much happier, peaceful, and fulfilling.
PRAY simply because it works. It is an opening up to God and a time to talk as well as LISTEN to God. Find some time each day, at least once a day, to pray. Simply open your heart and mind to God.
I hope these help you as much as they have helped me. That’s why I take the time to write about these all the time. I just want to help!
Have a great week!
