This is my new saying to meditate on, especially when life gets a bit rocky. What it means is that everything in life—how to LIVE it in general; how to think, how to interact with others, etc.—flows from Jesus. How he lived his life, what he said during it, and how he inspired others after he gave up this life is my guidepost on how to LIVE my life. Simply put—Jesus is my EVERYTHING!
Once again, I’m not talking about walking around with a hallo on my head and shouting alleluias. I’m simply talking about having a model and guidebook on how to LIVE my life on this earth. This is not about “religion” but simply all about living.
We are all tempted. I don’t know about you, but temptation is a constant in my life, especially now as I face problems with people in my business and personal lives. One of the Real Secrets to Life is the need to FIGHT temptation, however it may present itself. With the “season” of Lent starting today, we are reminded how Jesus faced and fought temptation in the desert for 40 days. That’s what we have to do on a daily basis in the “deserts” in our lives.
The beauty of “Jesus is my everything” is that Jesus is always everywhere. He is ready to help you, especially in times when the boat of life feels like it is sinking. You simply have to BELIEVE, call on Jesus for help, and stick out your hand. Sounds crazy, right? Well, it works if you only BELIEVE and give it a real chance.
He woke up and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” Then the wind ceased, and there was a dead calm. He said to them, “Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?” Mark 4:39-41
How you LIVE is the 6th Real Secret to Life.
Make “Jesus is my everything” a part of your life. I hope it helps you as it is helping me!
