Life Upside Down

I have observed one common characteristic in all those who’s life’s are messed up!… Either outwardly or inwardly. 

Now and again, I come across with people who simply do not understand why life is so upside down. 
The answer is simple and straight forward:

WRONG PRIORITIZING OF VALUES!..

Usually this is the order of priorities:

  1. Work/ Job/ Career
  2. Education
  3. Family
  4. Love Life
  5. Friends
  6. Hobbys
  7. Religion

The order may vary however that’s what I have seen.

Now when you start to put things in the right order, that is when things start to get straight.

Let’s start in my opinion by the 1st and most important priority.

  1. Relationship with God
Hence why:
  • Guidance to take right decisions. Isn’t that what we make all day?
  • Strength to keep persevering, until we get what we want.
  • Balance in daily life.
  • Certainty and assurance that you will bypass all obstacles.
  • Ability to keep your emotions under control using your intellect.
  •  Inner joy
  • Self-Control
  • Positivity
  • Good character
  • Peace
Above all our eternity.
2nd- Marriage -(Husband/ Wife)
3rd-Children
4th-Family members
5th-Career / Job / Work
6th- Hobby
7th-You can add your own way…………

    Pastor Elijah, this is so true, many try to do their own thing, their own way, and then complain. the tendency is that us human beings like to get things the quick and easy way, (Hence microwave food, take outs…….). This way often leads to disapointments.

    Once We learn to do thing`s in it`s correct order, only then can we truly be Blessed. This Post Has helped me alot.

    God Bless.

    Agreed pastor. I believe that in our lives, we have always to fallow a order and that is extremaly important we know wich one should be the first. I am sure that Jesus give us the answer when he said: Love God with all your strength, all your heart and all your understanding. Who want develop his relationship with God and be blessed have to put Him in Firt. By this reason He is called Alpha (means begin). We have to put all strengh in the hands of God. Its means in simple words sacrifice, the only way to give completely our lives to God. Sacrifice is not just a question of faith or needs, is question of obidience, even if i was multibillionary and completed in all areas in my life i would keeping sacrificing, because the most important is “I offer my best to my Lord.” Its glorious but unfurtunantely is not for all.
    God bless.
