What Are the Secrets to Life?

I have found 7 Secrets to Life, which is why I started this blog. I simply wanted to share what has helped me. The Secrets to Life are simple. LISTEN, READ, LOVE, FIGHT, BELIEVE, LIVE & PRAY. Simple. Then again, God means life to be simple. And they’re “secrets” because if everyone knew them they wouldn’t be secrets. That’s the utter simplicity of all of this—of life!

LISTEN because God is calling to and for you. Yes, you. God is calling to each one of us. We simply don’t choose to listen.

READ the Bible because it is simply (that “simple” word again!) the handbook on life. God’s handbook for all of us.

LOVE simply because God commands it. The one (simple) command we have from God.

FIGHT the devil because it is real and is truly prowling the earth whispering doubt and temptation in all our ears. I know—the thought of a real devil creeps people out. But it is real—trust me.

BELIEVE in God because God is in you. He hardwired you. You can do anything if you simply BELIEVE.

LIVE your life walking the straight path to God. What’s that path? LISTEN.

And PRAY because prayer is simply communication with God. Communication as in 2-way—you listen, then talk.

These 7 simple Secrets to Life have helped me. I hope they help you. If I can help one person that’s a start.

Have a GREAT evening and a SUPER tomorrow!

Jesus

Funny way to start a blog post, especially when I have been absent lately. And not very descriptive or creative. Jesus. What’s that all about anyway?

There is one name to call when you need help or guidance of any kind. Jesus. Nothing more. Jesus. It’s the most powerful name past, present, and future. Jesus. Just call Him and He will be there.

I know, I know, I know. This sounds all too pat and simplistic. Well, that’s exactly the message. It is simple. I write this so much I sound like a broken record to me! God intends life to be so very simple but we are the ones who complicate it. We over think, over live, and over everything. We’re not good at streamlining and simplifying life. Like a junk closet, we keep hoarding everything—emotions, would-of-could-ofs, feelings, etc. We don’t throw anything out in our lives; just stuff more into the closets that are our lives.

Jesus, Simple but all so very powerful. He’s never more than a heartbeat away. You just need to call out His name and meditate on it. Ask for help, direction, or anything else (including thanking Him). Or just bask in the glow of His light and warmth. Jesus. It’s that simple.

Find a quiet time and spot today. Jesus. That’s all you need to think about. The results will be amazing. Simple? Yes. Very.

Have a SPECTACULAR day!!!
