I find myself challenged by this verse from John 10 today. The question I am asking myself is this: Is my life characterized by a sense of fullness? Not that I’m overly busy or focused on outward signs of prosperity, but rather, am I experiencing the spiritual and emotional abundance that Jesus describes in my heart and mind?
I don’t yet have a settled answer to this one, and since I am sitting with this issue within my own heart and mind, I thought I’d invite you to perhaps do the same.
I feel hopeful, though, because – no matter what my circumstances may indicate – sunshine or clouds, blue sky or rain – such freedom and abundance (essentially, living above our circumstances) is not only available to us, but such peace has already been promised to us by the Lord.
Ponder that! After all, we serve a really big, powerful God; indeed, I need to remind myself of this truth from time to time, so I can simply rest in the abundant living that He has already promised me. 💡
PS – Nothing is amiss in my world, by the way – I’m just thinking out loud. 💛
