You were once in school with all kinds of fantasies about satisfaction loading in your head. If I could leave parents to rent a house, get a job in this or that company, if could marry that handsome, God-fearing and naira-loaded guy.
If I could marry that babe with all the curves based on the definition of the media per time.
If could buy a car, if I could build a house and if I could give birth to my children with few years.
Hey, wake up to reality!. Have you not noticed that the feats you made in all these “ifs” and even some added. It has not increased your satisfaction even an inch. Come on!, tell the truth.
It has made you feel like you are in the back seat. Your car is either “tokunbo” (secondhand) or brand new made in China. There are finer guys and babes here and there. You are still struggling to save money by all means to build a house.
And most importantly, you are much more afraid now that you have something than when you had nothing. Just scan through your mind!
Do you think that kind of life of “me, myself and I” thing will give the satisfaction you are chasing?
You are still in the “If I could” mission. If I could get promoted, I will be more satisfied. Oh!, what a mirage.
You cannot afford to live for “I” alone. The essence of living is not mere existence. It is to be productive (increasing in the good work) and to be a blessing in all that you do to all and sundry.
Catch this, Our Lord Jesus Christ says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit”. John 12:24
Please, self has to die (let go) and the enthronement of the pursuit to please God in all things if at all you will see satisfaction in this life.
The satisfaction you seek is a gift in the journey of life, not a destination. Your financial status notwithstanding.
Remember, it is as the desire to do good work backed with daily efforts to please God in all the things that God gives you the satisfaction otherwise you will chase it for life becoming more disappointed as you acquire more material things of life.
