It doesn’t matter who you are, what you do in life, and how much you have accomplished. I’m certain that you have one final goal which is common to every human being alive, and that is to be happy.
Of course, happiness has a different meaning for all of us.
Some think that being happy is sleeping next to your loved one or just being able to sleep peacefully. Some find happiness in good health, while others chase material possessions and money.
However, I have to disappoint you and tell you that none of these groups actually acquire true happiness.
In fact, people who realize that God is enough end up the happiest.
These are the only people who don’t worry about what tomorrow will bring, who don’t overthink the past, trying to change it, and who live a life without any fear.
It doesn’t matter what religion you belong to—the bottom line is always the same: if you have enough faith in God, everything else in this earthly existence becomes completely irrelevant.
Don’t see this as me trying to brainwash you and tell you that you’ll live a stress-free life once you realize that you don’t need anyone besides Him. I won’t lie to you—bad things will continue to happen, obstacles will keep on appearing in your way, and you’ll still have problems.
However, when you believe in God, one significant thing drastically changes: your perception of everything going on around you.
No, your life won’t magically fall into place, and your problems don’t disappear, as if they were never there.
However, you get your inner peace, and there is nothing more important than that.
You get the realization that you don’t depend on anyone besides God and that He is the only one who can impact your life besides yourself.
When your faith in God is firm, you realize that everything happens for a reason, and you search for good in all the bad situations that occur. You allow him to lead you, and you trust Him to show you the right way.
You understand that everything you are going through happened for your own good. You become optimistic and look forward to every new day because you see your life as a perfect puzzle and because you know that God always has a plan, even when you don’t see it.
You’re at peace because you know that He’ll never give you more than you can handle and because you realize that all the tough love He’s been giving you is nothing but a valuable lesson which will transform you into the person you’re destined to be.
When you see that God is enough, you have patience, and all of your worries go away. You know that there is no point in cracking your brains open because your future is already written.
You are aware that your life will turn out just the way it should. You know that you’ll get exactly what and who is destined to be yours, and even when you lose someone, you understand that you were better off without them.
Once you understand that God is enough, you are no longer a control freak, and you don’t think that everything is in your hands.
You learn to let go and move on with your life because you know that something better always awaits you.
You accept that some things and people are simply not meant to be, that all of your efforts in changing that are in vain, and that there is nothing you can do about it.
Just like that, everything becomes crystal clear, and you get to bottom of life’s meaning and the purpose you have on Earth.
You start seeing the world around you from a completely different perspective, and you get all the answers you have been searching for for so long.
Most importantly—when you realize His importance, you stop looking for love in all the wrong places and from the wrong people. You are no longer dependent on others to give you validation and to prove your worth.
You don’t allow your happiness to be connected with anyone else.
You stop with all the self-doubts which have been eating you alive simply because you believe in His light to guide you and pull you out of the darkness, no matter what happens.
You don’t need other people you can trust and rely on, when you have Him who’ll never leave your side. You stop chasing everyone’s attention and admiration, and you stop putting others in the centre of your Universe.
Even when everyone abandons you, you know that He remains, no matter what. Even when you feel pain for someone’s absence, His presence makes it a lot easier and more bearable.
So, please, stop chasing earthly pleasures, temporary love, short term lust or material belongings.
Trust me when I tell you that none of these things will bring you joy nor will they make you feel complete and fulfilled.
Instead, focus all of your strengths in the search for God.
Chase faith, and understand that it is the only thing which will make you truly and utterly happy.
