How to Live Abundantly

by Julie Barrier

Have you learned to live an abundant life despite circumstances?

God’s plan is to renew us.

Every day is a new adventure. He renews our minds with his Word. He restores our souls with His comforting presence. We can focus more time and energy on spiritual things. We have nothing to prove. We have nothing to lose.

“For this reason we never become discouraged. Even though our physical being is gradually decaying, yet our spiritual being is renewed, refreshed day after day. And this small and temporary trouble we suffer will bring us a tremendous and eternal glory. For we fix our attention, not on things that are seen, but on things that are unseen. What can be seen lasts only for a time, but what cannot be seen lasts forever.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NIV

God’s plan is to sustain us. 

My pastor-husband Roger suffered terrible health setbacks. He had open-heart surgery at thirteen, and suffered from a litany of serious illnesses ever since. His doctors often warned, “Roger, you may not be able to ….” He was not easily discouraged, but challenged to believe in God’s power. God’s grace has no limitations. None of His plans for Roger’s life were thwarted!

Nothing is over in your life until God’s says it’s over!

“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16 NIV

God’s plan is for us to live full lives.

We never have to live in regret over past mistakes. We never have to live in fear over future challenges.

Don’t let Satan steal your abundant life with regrets about the past or worries about the future. Live in the now!!

Jesus said,

 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” John 10:1 NIV
