Well we made it through another year and ready to face a new one … Or are we? I was sharing with Trevor how I think it is so crazy cool that as you come to the end of the year everyone begins to dream BIG again and actually believe that greater things can happen in the New Year.
I proposed the question, “WHY can’t this be a daily excitement?
What keeps us from waking up every day with the child like excitement of Today has to hold something great!”
Well we CAN, if we choose to. In fact God WANTS us to wake up every day with complete excitement walk out the day with EXPECTATION of greatness and partner with HIM doing more then we could ever dreamt possible . What is it that stifles that HOPE or EXCITEMENT if you will?
For each of us it is different, because we all have our own battles. The bible says in John 10:10 The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. HOWEVER it goes on to finish the verse with … My (God’s) purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.
That means EVERYDAY someone is fighting against me and someone is fighting for me. So I need to make a choice to get on the side of the one fighting FOR me and walk in the RICH and SATISFYING LIFE that is promised me.
Interesting wouldn’t you say?
We make things so difficult sometimes and what person doesn’t want more… we all do, no matter where we have come from not matter what race, religion, nationality, gender, etc. … we all want MORE.
I can only tell you from my own journey of life that God is the ONLY thing that has ever fulfilled that MORE desire.
I heard my husband say the other day he is so happy and content. That is where God wants us to be, content and grateful living in his graces from where we have come from and where we currently are going, yet wanting and expecting more from Him in every day.
It’s a journey not a race and yet the promise to run the race with Jesus is the promise that YOU WIN.
Well you will probably hear lots of thoughts from me over the year… Here is a nugget for today… SPEAK LIFE OVER YOURSELF… Speak good words, positive words, and when the negative talk starts, finish it with a positive.
You’re worthy of the VERY best this world has to offer and eternity in heaven with Jesus!
I’d love to pray with you so shoot me an email and I’ll get back to you! Blessings over you in your day! ~ C
