"Now if we are children, then we are heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us." -Romans 8:17-18
Abundant Life Tip of the Day: In order to truly live the Abundant Life, dedication and discipline is required.
Yes, the grass is greener with the Abundant Life!
Yes, it provides fulfillment, satisfaction, and glory!
Yes, it is well worth it!
But, it does require a commitment.
Before Christ was glorified, He suffered and we are called to join Him in His glory AND suffering with our lives.
Today I encourage you to practice discipline, because discipline leads to abundance!
Practice discipline daily in the following areas:
Spiritual: Prioritize time alone with God!
Physical: Take time to exercise and eliminate unhealthy foods.
Mental: Spend time reading or doing something that is mentally challenging.
Emotional:Identify and eliminate feelings of sadness, defeat, and depression and replace with feelings of joy, contentment, and peace, based on the true promises of God.
Social: Step out and meet someone new.
Occupational: Work with excellence at your job for God's glory!
Financial: Give generously and practice the discipline of budgeting.
Some of these challenges may be outside of your comfort zone, but following them each day will result in growth and abundance!
Let's work toward getting to the greener grass. It is definitely worth it!
God Bless You Abundantly!
