The things that pave out the path that leads to our fate
They can be our guiding lamps,
Or the rocks that lead us into nothingness.
They describe who we are
What we think,
How we feel,
Our default settings,
They speak for us.
They’re the voices people hear when we are silent,
They’re the pictures that reflect our shadows,
The plain canvas before us is the time we have to display our true motives.

Confessions of the Lost but Found

                 ”I Care Too Much About What I DON’T Have”

I want a car, but I need a license      

I want an apartment, but I need a steady job   

I want a husband, but I need a boyfriend

I want lots of money, but I need more that two jobs

I want to travel, but I need a visa

I want a wedding, but I need a fiance

I want to drink, but I must be 21

I want all expensive objects, but I need thousands

I want diamonds, but I need millions

  • 1 Timothy 6:6, “But godliness with contentment is great gain.”
  • James 3:14, “For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.”

                          No pause, No stop sign, No limit.

That point you reach when all you think about is what you don’t have,

what your human cravings tell your mind you need; such lies bring deceit and wrong doing.

Evil follows the cent and bad choices are made,

Soon, cravings that are ungodly become inviting and seductive. 

The memory of what you currently hold dear or enjoy makes no appearance whatsoever,

The conscious mind that keeps you sane and accountable is lost.

The difference between dreams and lost ambition becomes blurry and all of a sudden your left with an empty feeling that keeps you up at night.

Now, all you can think about is what you WANT! The urge turns into an ache that cannot be easily defused.

You constantly pace back and forth, calculating and recalculating…..”I’ll save this amount today, starve tomorrow and get the device next week.”

Suddenly, all traces of wisdom are far too invisible to see and blind quests for useless treasure pile up until the breaking point is beyond notice. 

How sad it is that one can be easily misguided and even destroyed by clever marketing.

The conscious effort to stop must be made,

The decision to be different must be obvious,

The want to have true satisfaction should be understood,

and the differences in envy and contentment need to bring clarity that cannot be mistaken.

  • Philippians 4:11, “I am not saying this because I am in need,  for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances.”
  • Proverbs 14:30, “A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.”

                    “Learn To Be Satisfied With What You Have”
