Joy-ful or Stress-ful?

Catching up with an old friend can be a special treat, but catching up with an old friend who has been transformed is amazing. I had the opportunity last week to take an hour walk with a gal I have known for over 10 years. When I last saw her, it was very obvious something was drastically different. Her eyes glowed. Her smile was captivating. She seemed to carry no stress at all. It was nothing short of miraculous. I couldn’t wait to find out what had taken place that brought such a conversion.

While going round and round on a small gym track, my friend began to share with me just how this transformation came to be. One day she took a look at her life and asked herself a very powerful question, “If the Christian life is support to be “abundant” (John 10:10), where is my joy?” Then she did it. She went on a search to find out why she wasn’t experiencing it. Through Grace Life International,she walked through forgiveness and finding out exactly how Jesus saw her. The Truth is absolutely transforming.

How about you? Do you consider yourself to be experiencing the abundant life Jesus talked about when He said, “I have come that they might have life and have it to the full?” If you have to honestly answer that question, “no”, ask yourself if you want it. It might not come easy. There may be work that needs to be done in your heart: forgiving someone, healing of old hurts, changing damaging habits…but the rewards of walking IN Him are nothing short of amazing! If you would like to know more, comment below or email me. I’d love to share with you!

    Desiring His abundant life,
