You Were Made More Than Just Survive

I talk to quite a few people every day and I see a trend that people tell me “They are surviving.”  Were we just meant to just survive? Is there more to life, than going through the weekly routine of going to our job, coming home, vegging in front of the TV, and then doing it all over again the next day? Dang, I sure hope so! No, actually I know so! You were made to thrive! I love that word. It means 1. to prosper; be fortunate or successful. 2. to grow or develop vigorously; flourish. To me, that means more than just getting by! Just paying the bills, just having an average marriage, average friendships, average health. Average is blah! It’s blah when you were meant for so much more! You were made to prosper in every area of your life! Watch this video by Casting Crowns for some encouragement.


I myself have found that Jesus helps me to thrive. Living for God and living by the principles He’s created for us to prosper, brings energy, vitality, excitement each and every day. LIFE! Being Rich and Healthy without God is like having coffee that is decaffeinated or a beer with no alcohol. There’s something missing! You’re not getting the full effect. You aren’t experiencing life as it’s meant to be experienced. Many self-help books substitute God with the word Universe. I know it’s to appeal better to the masses and not bring offense to people who are non-Christians, and I understand that, but I can’t abide by it in my own blog. I can’t call the Universe God because my God created the universe. He is the one that brings joy unspeakable even when all of hell may be around me. I can go to Him and seek refuge when I feel overwhelmed. He is as much a part of my life as eating is, as essential oils are, as being with my wife is. You are meant to thrive, and it’s my desire to see you thrive! The neat thing is, God does too! He’s not waiting to hit you over the head with a hammer. He’s waiting for you to come to Him and make Him Lord and Savior of your life. To know Him is to have the abundant life. Will you reach out to Him today and give your life to Him? When you do, you’ll find that missing piece you’ve been looking for all your life.
