Scripture:- 1 Samuel 16:1-23
Topic:- Living Your Dream Life
By: Dr. Ben Carson [Retired World-Renowned Neurosurgeon]
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!
l good will come back to you!!!
The man asks, “Where was God when Myles Munroe, his wife, and his associates were killed in a crash?
He answers, “The same place I
sat when John the Baptist my servant was beheaded.
When Stephen my servant was stoned to death.
When Paul my servant was murdered in Rome.
The same place I sat when my only Son was brutally crucified, wounded, bruised, and killed.
I have not moved from my position.”
I am the same.
It is not the means of exit from the earth that matters but the destination.
Oh Lord God, help me to live my life maximally and to Your glory henceforth by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.
