Coast or Thrive


If you scroll down to the bottom of this page where you will find the subjects by category for my posts, the biggest ones are Relationship, Spiritual Growth, and Encouragement. Which means this is what I write about most often. There is a reason for that.
 
When I write these words:
  
 ~ Draw near to the Lord

 ~ Make your relationship with Him of utmost importance
  
 ~ Sit at His feet
  
 ~ Start your day in conversation with Him
  
 ~ Have a quiet time
  
 ~ Read your Bible

They are not cliché platitudes and they are not empty words. They are weighted choices that make the difference between coasting and thriving. In the matter of spiritual growth, coasting can result in standing still and not growing at all.

I have learned and it is my experience that as a result of making these choices above that keep me close to the Lord, this is where He daily pours into me…

Strength and Faith

Courage and Hope

Joy and Peace

Patience

Deep Satisfaction

Grace, Mercy, and Love

He fills me up with all of this and more and I am the grateful recipient of His abundant blessings every day.

I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

This is what He offers us and this is what I want. I want to thrive!
