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

Is There A Greater Desire Than To Be Adopted Into God's Splendor?

Today I will attempt what is impossible through my own powers but what is made possible by the love of God, and that is to grasp the all-encompassing Good News presented in Ephesians and what it means to be adopted by God, sought after by God, and redeemed by God.

Ephesians 1:18
...and this is my prayer. That God, the God of our Lord Jesus Christ and the all-glorious Father, will give you spiritual wisdom and the insight to know more of him: that you may receive that inner illumination of the spirit which will make you realise how great is the hope to which he is calling you—the magnificence and splendour of the inheritance promised to Christians—and how tremendous is the power available to us who believe in God.
Phillips Bible

Today I will walk to God’s altar believing that what awaits me is far greater than what I can possibly imagine or desire.

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.
