God Wants …

If you believe in God, according to Regina Brett, “God doesn’t want us to be so holy we aren’t human. God doesn’t want fake prayers and phony praise. God wants an honest, genuine, real relationship.” Be honest with yourself. Do not deceive God. You can deceive yourself, but you cannot deceive God. Why is that? Because He is your Creator. He knows you. He knows everything about you. You can trick yourself, not God.

God wants you to live your life,

to think for yourself,

to love yourself,

to love others,

to be happy,

to be grateful,

to appreciate what you have,

to focus on what you are doing,

to listen to your soul,

to stand for something,

to be honest with yourself,

to tell the truth,

to go the extra mile,

to do what makes you happy,

to be you, the real you.

He doesn’t want your money. He wants your soul.

What Does It Mean To Live An Abundant Life?

What does it really mean to live an abundant life? Is it about you? Is it about how you live your life? What is it really about?

Living an abundant life is about you. It is about how you live your life. It is not about what you have; it is about the feelings you get from what you have. It is not about money; “it’s how you think about money. It’s about how you behave with money.” It is about how you treat yourself. It is about how you treat what you have. It is about how you do your work, not about what you do. It is about love, self-love. Because it is not possible to live an abundant life if you don’t love yourself, if you don’t love who you are.

Living an abundant life is more than material possessions. Regina Brett says, “Living an abundant life doesn’t mean winning the lottery, marrying rich, or getting a raise. It starts with a raise in consciousness and spread from there. It starts with knowing that what you want isn’t always what you need, and often isn’t even what you truly want. It starts with making smart choices that lead to long-term gratification.” If you want to live a great life, you must start with “making smart” decisions.
