What's More Important: Having It All or Happiness?

What's More Important: Having It All or Happiness?

After reading the article posted in the link above, I came away feeling confirmed in my spirit that the only way a person can achieve true happiness and joy is through Christ Jesus. No matter how much success we as women attain in this world it does not guarantee happiness, nor does it guarantee fulfillment. Anyone and everyone can present self-help guides and/or alternative methods to help us find happiness, but in the end you'll continuously feel as if you're missing something. As an African American women living in the 21st century I to at points in time have found myself attempting to define my purpose and find my niche. Only to fail and have my spirit lead me back to the basic principle reasoning for my existence, which is to serve and praise God!

Not to say you shouldn’t focus on obtaining success, while attempting to raise your children and spend time with your family. What I’m stating is without God worldly success does not provide comfort for the heart, mind, and spirit. Instead seek God and He’ll provide blessings in your life that you could not accumulate on your own. Success through Christ Jesus will redefine your perspective on what success means, and in turn will guide you to obtain Heavenly success. Heavenly success cannot be destroyed, cannot be cheapened, and cannot be taken away. 

Proverbs 23:4-5 4 Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness. 5 Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.

Matthew 6:19-21 19 Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

What are your thoughts?
