The Soft Life and Relationship Goals are like everyone’s life goals nowadays , just trying to make sure that we attain at-least one of these and our lives would “perfect”.
We strain ourselves to get this so called “fulfilled” life , to the point where we feel drained because all we’re doing is giving into something that’s just temporary.

I’m not experiencing the soft life or do i have the Relationship Goals but i know it gives a temporary happy feeling . How do i know this for sure?
There are people who seem to have all these things but are going through depression , some who reach to the point of taking their own lives.
So if one can reach this point do you really think this should be our life goals of trying to attain a temporary feeling.

I don’t know about you but I’m tired of chasing for temporary feelings. I want to chase the everlasting feeling that will fulfill me , something that won’t try to rob me of my peace.

I can only get this feeling from my Creator, the Everlasting God. The feeling of everlasting Joy .

What comforts me in hard times is that there’s a place waiting for me where there won’t be sorrow or pain. That is what should get us through difficulties in life ,knowing that we have a great reward which is ETERNAL LIFE filled with Joy.

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.””
‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:4‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Many Christians we see today were once drunkards ,drug addicts and used to live for the world but at the end of the day they decided to follow Christ because the worldly things they sought after brought temporary happiness .
They came to discover that only Jesus Christ can make you whole .
Social media will show you the “perfect”lives of people with their flashy cars and clothes which would lead someone else to try and imitate them , because thats where they would think happiness lies. The moment people realize that all those materialistic things cannot keep them happy they become depressed.

Lets seek God if we are looking to be whole again. I hope the time you realize you need God it wont be too late.

As we long as we obey and seek God , he will grant us everything we have ever wanted and so much more.

“If you listen obediently to the Voice of GOD, your God, and heartily obey all his commandments that I command you today, GOD, your God, will place you on high, high above all the nations of the world. All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of GOD, your God: GOD ’s blessing inside the city, GOD ’s blessing in the country; GOD ’s blessing on your children, the crops of your land, the young of your livestock, the calves of your herds, the lambs of your flocks. GOD ’s blessing on your basket and bread bowl; GOD ’s blessing in your coming in, GOD ’s blessing in your going out.”
‭‭Deuteronomy‬ ‭28:1-6‬ ‭MSG‬‬

Think for a second what you want to chase. Look at your Goals and ask yourself if they will fulfill you when you attain them .

Before it’s too late Shift Focus your Life Goals before you are robbed of your Soul.

That is very true we have become a society that is led by what we see others potray yet we do not really focus on how they attained. Suicide is on a rise because we have become focused on things that do not really matter in life. Thank you for the words really helps putting things into perspective
