You must remember the important things of life. Fame and fortune are not important. You need to earn your bread but you must not be consumed by the need for more. The quest for more material things will other bring things that are vanity. You must remember that the love for money is the root of ALL evil.
You must wake up every morning with the right sense of purpose. Your purpose is not to compete with others. Your purpose is not to bring down others. Your purpose is to touch lives with the talents you have. Your purpose is to give as much as you can. Your purpose is to love unconditionally. Your ultimate purpose is to draw people to God through everything you do.
You must remember that one day you will be on a dying bed. And it might not even be a dying bed. Death could happen in the split of a second, anytime, anywhere. You must always think about death because this will keep you in check. One day, you will no longer be here and if all that you worked for were material things, then you will be so miserable.
Dear Precious, you must remember that as the days go, the world is becoming more evil. Therefore you must not forget your Creator. You cannot afford to be a lukewarm Christian. You cannot afford to be a passive Christian. You must nurture your relationship with God every single day in other to stand. You must open your Bible and eat from it. You must fellowship with people who love the Lord as you do. You must work on your relationship with God because it is the most important thing.
Dear Precious, you must take care of the body God gave you. It is your responsibility to eat right, exercise right and take care of this mortal body while you are still here. Do not be passive and expect to be okay. You must work on your health.
As a mom, you must remember that your kids are watching you. They see everything you do. And they are going to copy what you do more than what you say. So living right is more important than telling them to live right. And you must cherish every moment with your little ones because they are not going to be here for very long.
Dear Precious, you must remember that each day is a battle. You have to fight to do the right things instead of the wrong ones. You have to fight to wake up from bed rather than sleep some more. You have to fight to stay away from social media so you can get work done. You have to fight to love when you have every reason to hate. You have to fight. Every. single. day.
Dear Precious, you must remember that you must work on your marriage for your marriage to work. You cannot afford to have an okay marriage. You can not afford to have one of those marriages that end of up as a statistic. You cannot afford to have a marriage void of God. You must always remember the value of marriage and the family.
Dear Precious, you must think of the legacy you want to live behind. You want to be remembered as a woman that gave all she had and most importantly as a woman who loved God.
Dear Precious, think about these things. Selah.
