What About Success ?

3 John 3:2   I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. 

Success is many thing's to different folk's , but for most , it speaks of financial freedom.
I have always been intrigued by the myriad of books written on prosperity or the "blessing"
 such as it is , in a Christian perspective. We are usually given steps. 5 steps to success , 4 steps to a better life and so on. They usually end up steps to nowhere. I have read more books than I can count. I love to read. They have value and one can learn much , But at the end of the day , most of us are still found lacking .
One guy told me the more he worked , the luckier he got.  That's one way to look at it I guess. We generally put our hopes in what the speaker is saying , and it keeps us coming back , but they are usually the ones getting wealthy from it. We finally conclude we are in this alone, and it must be worked out alone.

Seeking wisdom can wear you out, unless you use wisdom while seeking it . Bottom line : We must each seek Gods will
for our individual lives . His plan is uniquely different for each of us. What worked for Johnny, probably will not work for us. All folks cannot be rich and all cannot be poor , but what we all can be , is at peace and contentment with who we are , and where we are going. It revolves around one person, Jesus Christ ! As the old saying goes , wise men still seek him ! He has planned your life right down to the dollar . Go forth and prosper in your relationship with him, and everything else will fall in place.

God bless you on your journey !
