"I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."
My husband and I like to say we are "living large." We enjoy life to the fullest. The Bible says we are living life more abundantly.
You might imagine we have a lot of money in the bank, brand-new cars, and a fancy home on the water, full of nice things.
Nope. We don't own a house, but live in our paid-in-full RV full time, we both drive 2008 vehicles, we only own what we can carry along with us going down the road - and we couldn't be happier.
So what makes us believe we are enjoying the abundant life? First, our marriage is blessed. We live in peace together, even in such a small space. We are semi-retired, but still enjoy good health and are able to travel. All of our needs are met; we never miss a meal and we always have enough for diesel and campsite fees. We laugh every day, finding joy in small things. And we travel thousands of miles a year safely. His protection follows us wherever we go.
God is so good, and we can't thank Him enough for all the ways He fills our lives with love, joy, and peace. Wouldn't you like the blessing of abundance in your life too?
In this fast-paced world, we seem to have more and bigger things, but less of what it takes to live an abundant life. That’s the paradox and this video helps us refocus on what matters.
Lord, I know abundant living begins by enjoying intimate fellowship with You. Remind me to slow down and spend more quality time with You. Thank you for being right in the middle of our activities, and for blessing them richly.
