You ever wonder why some people function from a peaceful place and others do not? It's simple really. The former keep the Lord's commandments (orders, precepts) and they live a life of peace and prosperity. Now prosperity may not necessarily be monetary. Prosperity can be living a life of abundance through great relationships, as well as, great spiritual, physical and emotional health. People just living a good life and being in a place of acceptance of how the Lord directs their lives. No, everything won't go perfectly and there will be challenges for sure, yet some people handle struggles, challenges, and setbacks, like a champ. They know they're going to win and they are as prepared as possible for battle, because they know the battle isn't theirs. It's the Lord's. It's just as simple as that when we follow God and His ordered steps of our lives. Proverbs 3:1/2 says, "my son [or daughter], do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity."
I trust God and His word, the bible. And I don't just write these blog posts for posting-sake. I believe every last one of them and I try my best to live accordingly. Do I fall short? You bet, I sure do, more times than I wish. I did today. It may not have been a huge thing, but falling short is falling short. Yet I am trying my best to live a life holy and acceptable to the Lord and I know that is a tall order for us humans. But what I'm glad about, is the fact that I have something to live for. And you have something to live for too. Believe that.
