I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.  John 10:10

The life God wants to give you is not small and restrictive. Jesus says the abundant life that comes from being intimately connected to him will be better than all your dreams rolled into one. It will happen more and more as you spend daily time with him. Create daily alerts in your phone or computer to remind you to check in with God. This will help you create a habit of spending time with him throughout the day. Just say, “Jesus, I’m here. I’m back. I trust in you.”

Ask him to open your eyes to see his abundance through your work, in your health, and in your relationships. He wants to fill you with the abundance of his own life so that your life is rich and satisfying. He wants a real relationship with you, where you come to know him more deeply as time goes on. You’ll find there’s always more to learn. And you’ll be amazed at how he surpasses your wildest dreams with the richness of his love and nearness of his presence.

Food for Thought:  Go ahead and dream of abundant life. God freely provides as we draw near to him.
