And we know that in all things, God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
Everything that happens in your life has a purpose. There are excellent reasons you are where you are now, many reasons for the events in your life, and why you are making a living.
Indeed, life is hard, primarily when the global economic crisis affects everyone. In whatever walk of life you are, you will always have your taste of hardships and triumphs.
Is it not that we best appreciate life’s meaning through the hardships you went through, and you hurdled every obstacle successfully and unscathed?

With God as your guide, you will always see how life unfolds for its great reasons, both in the present and future.
What is often revealing is how the past would tie up to your present and future state. Are these not causes to make life full of zest?
For everything that happens in your life, good or bad, always remember that it is an opportunity for you to realise that you live under the compassionate, loving care of the Almighty Loving God.
Make every moment an opportunity to serve Him, show grace and give thanks in all circumstances. You can make it one rare chance to pay humble service to life itself.
Well, you may be someone who has achieved well in life, amassing great success, great love, joy, and perhaps, fame and recognition.
Towards achieving this, you take a different route and find yourself separate from your friends and workmates.
You wanted power, admiration, and wealth. You own various villa rentals and vast real estate.
Despite the significant gap you have achieved from everyone else in terms of material wealth, one equaliser would place you on the same level as everyone else — death.
Indeed, when you leave this mortal world, you cannot take with you all the riches and comforts in life that you have acquired.
You can not bring the material things you have acquired to life beyond because all that you will have to get is only your soul.
Never forget to share what you have, especially for those in need.
Because you have invested so much effort and time to acquire wealth, you appropriate everything for yourself and don’t even think about caring for your neighbours.
Remember that one secret to happiness is serving others, regardless of economic status.
Always do what is true, correct and just. Let God be your centre for service, for it is from Him whom you gain the greatest strength and recognition.
Life will always be kind to you, blessings will come to you, and challenges will be instruments for a better version of you when you persevere.
Go on with life, pursue your career enthusiastically, nurture your passion, and enjoy the beauty of things around you. Love and treasure your family and friends, and let God guide all your ways.
Keep smiling as you revel in the blessings of God’s mighty purposes.
