Naming, Claiming, and Proclaiming

the Abundant Life

Who am I? Good question. Who am I, really?
A very good question, a soul-searching question.

I am in search of The Abundant Life.
Why  choose the abundant life? What is it? And where may it be found?

Join me in my journey to The Abundant Life.

Why desire it?    What is it?   Where is it?

Thought For an abundant day

The Way

Which way? Where are we going? How do we get there?

We ask these questions throughout life and look for directional signs. But these signs are often missing, misleading, or hard to understand.

There is, however, a way to move forward with confidence to a good place.

In John 14, Jesus is telling his disciples that He has the ultimate destination planned for them and that they know the way to it. Thomas responds with basically these words: “We don’t know where or the how.” (Verse 5) Jesus counters with “I am the way and the truth and the life.”

What is the full understanding of Christ’s words and how may they be applied in life? It is this:
It is unequivocally certain—an absolute truth—that the fullness of life comes from following Christ—THE WAY.

This was not a one-time directive to a specific location but an overarching message to be applied throughout life, at all times, and under all conditions. It is so like Christ; we ask for a simple remedy and He gives us an entire pharmacy. We ask for directions to a specific location and are given a map of the world. We ask for a cup of cold water and are given an overflowing fountain.

Life, in all its fullness, is what Christ desires for us. Trust Him, follow Him to this abundant life.

I begin each day with short reflections based on Study, Prayer, and a commitment to Action (my Bible SPA).

What amazes me is the ease, breadth and depth of these thoughts that can only come from the Holy Spirit. I conclude each reflection with a mention of God’s altar because it is at God’s altar where blessings are bestowed, gratitude is offered, and wholeness is made. And God’s altar may be found anywhere and everywhere, and especially in my heart.
