Naming, Claiming, and Proclaimingthe 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.
my journey begins dailytoday i will...
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.
Today I will accept drudgery as part of life, but also believe that, with a Christian perspective, it can be transformed into a light that shines onto God’s glory.
Today I will accept despair as part of life, but also believe that I can offer it up on Christ’s altar where it can be accepted and redeemed.
Today I will be alert to the suffocating, draining toll of discouragement: that its presence in our lives is to be expected, but not feared; that its grip may be tenacious but not all powerful; and that if we are not able to break its grip ourselves, God can and in unexpected ways.
