My journey to the abundant life is currently 73 years in the making.
I could never have imaged where I could be today based on my early years. That is the blessing of time directed by God. Where I once craved what the world promised, now I crave the promise of a loving God. When once I sought to optimize my search results on my business website, I now work to optimize my search for wisdom. And where LinkedIn was my business resumé, it is now directed to The Abundant Life.
Today I Will
Today I will seek His living waters from His almighty power and grace. I will not despair that only I can solve my problems; my hope resides in Christ, not in self-sufficiency.
Today I will seek Jesus in unlikely places and with unlikely people (including myself). I will not doubt, I will not distrust His ability to offer springs of living water, though, through my limitations and the depth of my own inferiority, I cannot imagine how He will do so.
Today I will stop fleeing from God, as Jonah attempted. I will not resent His love for and mercy to those I envy or despise, as Jonah did.
