Dr. Ben Carson (Retired world renowned neurosurgeon, and currently serving in President Trump’s administration) wrote this beautiful piece.
Please read and reflect.
Sometimes you are unsatisfied with your life, while many people in this world are dreaming of living your life. A child on a farm sees a plane fly overhead and dreams of flying. But, a pilot on the plane sees the farmhouse and dreams of returning home. That’s life!! Enjoy yours.
If wealth is the secret to happiness, then the rich should be dancing on the streets. But only poor kids do that. If power ensures security, then officials should walk unguarded. But those who live simply sleep soundly. If beauty and fame bring ideal relationships, then celebrities should have the best marriages. But those who live simply walk humbly and love genuinely! All good will come back to you!!!
Man asks, “Where was God when Myles Munroe, wife and his associates were killed in a crash? The Lord God would answer, “I am still sitting in the same place I sat when John the Baptist my servant was beheaded; when Stephen my servant was stoned to death and when Paul my servant was murdered in Rome. The same place I sat when my only Son was brutally bruised, wounded, crucified and killed. I have not moved from my position.” I am the same yesterday, today and always!
It is not the means of exit from the earth that matters but the destination. Live simply. It’s all about God!!
I love this one: If someone asks about your educational background, proclaim boldly that: Church is my college. Heaven is my university. Father God is my counselor. Jesus is my principal. Holy Spirit is my teacher. Angels are my classmates. Bible is my textbook. Temptations are my exams. Overcoming Satan is my hobby. Winning souls for God is my assignment. Receiving eternity is my degree. Praise and Worship are my slogan.
As a good child of God, I enjoin you to forward this message to all the contacts in your phone. God bless you as you do that!
