A Breathing Space
In our goal centricity, we may end up overloading ourselves for that rush of adrenain of "Goal Achievement"
I have one word for you - Don't!
15 Life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
16 And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. 17 He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’
18 “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. 19 And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.” ’
20 “But God said to him, ‘You fool!l This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’
Oftentimes when we think of possessions, we immediately think of material possessions, but, when someone says, "I'm the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul," more often than not, s/he is referring to possessing (capturing) one's goals.
Finish the year strong!
Give yourself a breathing space!
Enter the new year full of passion, full energy
There are people waiting for you on the other side.

Thanks for sharing these powerful words of wisdom to help us better sharpen our relationship with CHRIST JESUS. AMEN!
Questions: - How do we redirect our focus on non material possessions?
- How do we focus on Love and connection within ourselves and with our brethren in Christ?
- How do we protect ourselves and our minds from the alluring FOMO of the material world?
I believe this is what the average Christian is missing or not advertising. the peace of mind that comes with Being fully in Christ and also enjoying the (**holy) fruits this world can provide - like King Solomon.
