May Your Wishes Comes True

We all do worry about all kinds of things. Most of the times we worry about things over which we obviously have no control.

The bible tells us in Matthew 6:25 "Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing?

The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.

May We Always Have:
Enough happiness to keep us sweet;
Enough trials to keep us strong;
Enough hope to keep us lively;
Enough sorrow to keep us human;
Enough failure to keep us humble;
Enough success to keep us eager;
Enough friends to give us comfort;
Enough wealth to meet our needs;
Enough faith to overcome despair;
Enough enthusiasm to keep us looking forward;
Enough determination to make each day better than yesterday.

Hi Sam, you are back from vacation. Hope you enjoy and manage to rejuvenate yourself.

The happiest people are those normal people earning reasonable income but live a happy life. They accept what comes along and no think of having everything.

Once we start to wish to have more things, we start to have problems. In Buddhism, we call that attachment. :)

Agree with FL Sam's part about attachment. With being attached, we become irrational and unreasonabe, and yearn for something that we did not yearn for just just now!

Hi Sam,

Thanks for adding in wisdom to this post. Indeed, when we start to wish to have more, we end up attach to things of the world.

The bible also tells us not to attach to the things of the world.
In 1 John 2:15-17, it is written "Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. (16) For all that is in the world--the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world. (17) And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever."

Blessings to you, Sam

Hey Sam!

I could at times be a victim of perpectual worrying. Thanks for the post. To guide my mindframe right.

Busy after your vacation? .. Hey your Birthday is coming soon!!

ChristineHaze said...

This is absolutely true....however there are times that we can't help but to worry of what he future awaits.

I do enjoy my daily life though there are struggles here and there....I just have to be prepared, come what may!

Hi Karen,

Correct! I am very busy after the vacation because of my work assignments deadline. Well, maybe due to stress and the bad weather, I am now sick and taking three days MC!

Karen, you are indeed a tender and meticulous person. You can even remember my birthdate because of the one meme!

I am glad this post can serve as a reminder so that we will not be a victim of perpectual worrying.

Blessings to you, Karen.

Sam Chan said...

Hi Haze,

It is good to be prepared, come what may! Hopefully not spending all our time and energy worrying unnecessary.

May all your wishes come true.

Blessings to you.

Hi Sam, I'm sorry I did not see your bday meme, what is ur bday :)

I like the biblical quote u had for Sam and us, where if we want more, we become attached to worldly possessions, and in turn, our attachment to God himself diminishes.

I'm also like Karen a perpetual worrier. Worried about outings,work,school etc that is as far as 1 week/1month away! Therefore recently quite down, but I read ur posts on how to be happy- I used ur "related posts' section to go from 1 to another, Lol! :)

Sam Chan said...

Hi Winston,

It is not my bday meme but the "5 things you probably don't know about me" meme which is available here

I am glad you like the Bible versus quoted. I believe it will be even better if you could understand and make use of those quotes.

Well, overly worry will stop progress. Frankly speaking, when I started to think twice or more before I release a new post for this blog, I could not post any or very much less than those days.

Best Wishes to you, Winston.
