Scripture for the Journey
I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly.
The Message: A more and better life than they ever dreamed of.
Imagine, God really wants us to have a better, more abundant life. that's why he sent Jesus to earth, to walk and talk with us. To show us how to live that better life.
Jesus' teachings are wise council, not hard-to-follow rules. He healed sickness and said we could do the same. Though he had nothing, he had everything. If only we'd read Jesus' teaching and apply his wisdom.
Our lives can be so much better. Even more so than we can possibly imagine.
Here's something you can do for the fun of it. If you had no limitations, what would you want to be doing in the next year? Five years? Ten years? Dream big. Don't hesitate or hold back.
Write it all down.
Now, here comes the challenge. Take this list before God. Ask him which of your dreams line up with his plan for your life? Don't fret. Give this a few days. Listen. Keep your eyes open for confirmation. Ask your friends and spiritual leaders to discuss your list with you.
I bet, in a short while, a firm goal will begin to form, a destination, blended together from your heart and God's heart. And this is exactly what you want. To line up your dreams with God's desires. Be patient and allow the process to happen. He has good plans for you. Seek him and find out what they are.
