Let us appreciate every blessing that pours on us day in and day out. Each of us has a certain mission to fulfill; all undertakings are unique because God has made them for us. Trust in the Lord to reveal all things but for the meantime you live life simply according to His gospel.

God has shielded us from receiving anymore problems and the problems that hit us are only a fraction of what really has come our way

Jesus Christ has taught us a very simple message, to live simply, no matter how hard it could be. A long time ago, an emperor told his horseman to cover as much land as he likes, and then the emperor would give him the land he covered. The horseman immediately went to his horse to start the quest. He rode as fast as possible and even delayed rest and nourishment for his ambiguous goal. Now weakened and dying, he said to him, “Why did I go on this quest anyway? I only need a small piece of land to be buried in.

Much like the horseman in the story, we want to achieve our goals as much as possible; not letting anything hinder the success of our quest. It would seem to be a good plan but the fact is that we need only the most little of things in life. Jesus Christ has taught us a very simple message, to live simply, no matter how hard it could be.

We get so focused on our goal that we fail to appreciate the things that we have, we should know that, we have a family that loves us, a home that shelters us and friends that console us. If we keep on such blind goals we may find ourselves in despair, for the things we were working for, doesn’t make us happy. We even risk losing the important things in our lives. It is important that we get contented with what we have and know that we are very fortunate and blessed.

Many problems arise from time to time and we can’t avoid them because God has a plan for us and He gives us trials if we can survive and overcome them, especially our weaknesses.

Perhaps, we may suffer grievously but always remember that these are only the petty problems. God has shielded us from receiving anymore problems and the problems that hit us are only a fraction of what has come our way. It is very fulfilling to know that we are normal; many people have not received this gift. We are very dynamic, very blessed, and very lucky to be still alive today and to lead a righteous life in our own little ways.

Let us appreciate every blessing that pours on us day in and day out. Each of us has a certain mission to fulfill; all undertakings are unique because God has made them for us. Trust in the Lord to reveal all things but for the meantime you live life simply according to His gospel.

God gives us trials to measure our strengths and capabilities of facing them in accordance with our faith to him that will be able us to be strong in every problems that we have encountered in life as we go along our journey.
We all know that overcoming challenges or obstacles in life is not just easy to do,we need to ask for God's guidance in order to enlighten our minds especially if we are in the state of dilemma .
