My Everything

The age old question that a lot  of philosophers have asked is, “What is the meaning of life”? People make this query when they feel lost or empty. When you experience struggles in your life, you often think what is the point of it all. Well, I’m here to tell you that in order to solve that problem, you have to prioritize. What is it in life that should be your number one? My sister made me come to this conclusion. Many of you know that I’m a Christian.  With this in mind, my lovely sister gave me some serious advice. As I go to college in literally a matter of less than a week, she wanted to ensure that I have my ish together. If you know what I mean.  Her advice was to keep God first in my life. I’ve always set a preconceived notion that yes, my priorities were: 1. God 2. Family 3. Academics. Nonetheless, it wasn’t until my sister called me out for a song that I wrote that I realized that I may need to readjust my priorities. The song was not a bad song, it just had a very secular vibe. In all honesty, I do not write Christian music. However, she pointed out the fact that in everything I do that I need to honor God. So, I plan on writing a song about how God is my everything. I am truly blessed to have a sense of belonging and comfort in my faith. The biggest epiphany I encountered was when my sister told me “Do you realize that you are nothing without God”. That really hit the nail in the wall. There is nothing that I could have accomplished on my own doing in life. For those of you who don’t know, I fell critically ill last year. At one point in my life, I doubted God’s existence. I would ask my self, the pitiful, sulking questions like “Why me.?” Then it occurred to me that because I had breath, God existed. I could have been dead but there was still a divine plan over my life. Obviously, I am healed today. I was able to have a testimony for my life. I knew that if it wasn’t for the grace of God, I probably would have been dead. Therefore, I am trying to work on putting God first. If I don’t have anything in life, as long as I have God I know I will be alright. The bible says “seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness…and everything will be added unto you”. This scripture is so true. I notice when I go closer to God, he truly gives me the desires of my heart. Yes, in life you will go through struggles. That’s just part of being a human being. It’s how you react to the struggles. Do you seek God or do you resort to your flesh? I am hoping it is the former. I’m not perfect, and I never will be. Despite this, I want to thrive to be as Christ-like as possible. The acronym, WWJD (What would Jesus do?) speaks volumes. You are a child of God. It’s important to keep your father as your role model. When you do this, you will surely receive your inheritance, the blessings of Abraham. So take the time to spend time with your father. Love on him.  Make him number 1 in your life, and he’ll make you #1 in his kingdom. Your efforts will not be in vain. I hope you enjoyed today’s blog.

Be blessed,
