And it is a happy Monday! If you are reading this, you woke up this morning. You probably had, or will have, some breakfast and maybe a cup of coffee or tea. You will prepare to go about your day, whether it is at work, at home or at play.
Many do not have those privileges today. Maybe they are sick, heartbroken with a loss or maybe they didn’t wake up at all. That is real life. The real key is in how you are going to handle it.
You may need to grieve, and that’s ok. You may need to heal, and if so, take the time to do it completely. Just remember that you are a child of God. He knitted you in the womb and knows every hair on your head. He wants a full and abundant life for you. Open your heart and your mind and let Him in.
In His light,
The Daniel Plan
Jesus said, “… I came so that they can have real and eternal life, more and better life than they ever dreamed of.” —John 10:10 MSG
Jesus wants you to experience the fullness of life. Your relationship with him enables you to pack meaning and purpose into each and every moment. Jesus says this abundant life in him will be better than all your dreams rolled into one.
In this godly life, every part of you is interconnected: your spiritual health is connected to your physical health, and they are both connected to your mental and emotional health. A problem in one area will affect all the others. A new pattern in one area will spread renewal to the other areas.
If you bring all of yourself to God, he will help you change patterns that may have been stuck in—patterns with food, fitness, or negative thinking, to name a few. Real life in Christ means having the power of his Spirit actively working in you, building full, real life in him.
Food for Thought: God wants to fill every part of you with real life: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wholeness.
