Deceived

1 Timothy 6 : 7-10

For we brought nothing into the world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it. If we have food and clothing, we shall be content with that. Those who want to be rich are falling into temptation and into a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires, which plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all evils, and some people in their desire for it have strayed from the faith and have pierced themselves with many pains.

Ill be the first to admit that I have fallen into the pit of worldly desires many many times.  Wanting to have a grasp on anything I need to be happy. Of course that entire sentence sounds terrible right now but when I am in the moment of my humanly desires I ignore the reality  and toss it to the trash. The first time read the first verse here For we brought nothing into the world, just as we shall not be able to take anything out of it.I was speechless because everything that was said there is true. People come and go and their names begin to be forgotten but gladly God our father never forgets his children. So why do we care so much to make a big name for ourselves. Why do we want attention from others to feel that we are worthy to live. Why do we love what is fake and not what is real. So many times when I fall I get so pissed off with myself and I begin to drift far from God. Everyday is a daily struggle, a struggle that can be something so beautiful if we let it be. Let our sufferings be for God not for this world.
