I try to look at my life each day but life tends to get in the way. Meaning, the chaos of my professional and personal “lives” tends to drown out the daily look back on where I have been and where I am heading in life. That’s part of the problem as I look back on 2015 and try to plot a course ahead for 2016. That’s why I find myself falling back on the Secrets to Life—and I mean the Real Secrets to Life.
LISTEN, READ, LOVE, FIGHT, BELIEVE, LIVE & PRAY. There you have them. My Secrets to Life. As the Chaos of my “lives” have already gotten the better of me after 18 days of 2016 I am falling back on my Secrets to Life. For me, they are a steading influence, helping me put life in total into perspective and serving as a map going forward.
LISTEN because God is calling to you—yes, you! READ the Bible because it has life answers. LOVE because God is love and commands us to live in love. FIGHT because the devil is all too real and whispering doubt and other temptations in your ear. BELIEVE that you can do anything—because you can! LIVE knowing this life is just the opening act to eternity. And PRAY simply because it works—God is listening (as well as calling to you, which loops you around to the first Secret to Life).
The utter simplicity of these Secrets to Life says everything. They boil life down to its simplicity—the way God means life to be. They help me focus my life—what I did yesterday that needs correcting and the course changes I need to make today. They help me focus on what’s important and what is not. They help order the chaos.
I hope these help you as they help me. But whatever you do, find your Real Secrets to Life. And have a GREAT day in the process!
