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 prepare myself anew for the Lord’s return: to reassess my stewardship of His gifts, to respond gratefully to His graces, to follow His commands, to love Him and neighbor, to be diligent in service, to hold Him above all else.
Today I will not dismiss the fathomless, incalculable love of God simply because it is beyond understanding. Rather, I will worship, adore, pray, love–all these and more–to begin to chip away at my lack of understanding.
Today I will confess my cowardice in standing up for Christ, for the many times I have abandoned Him when I could have proclaimed Him in word or deed, for being a paper disciple.
