Five Minute Friday

John 10:10New International Version (NIV)

10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full

My #oneword for the year is abundant. In my daily life, I forget the truth of this verse, and I try to do life my way, in my own strength. Then, I wonder why I am so tired and cranky, and lacking joy. I need to remember where abundant life comes from. The source of abundant life is Jesus. He is the one that gave His life, so that we can have abundant life in and through Him. I have been thinking of the example Jesus set this Holy Week. He did not live his life for Himself, but he laid his life down for me. He is King of Heaven, and He chose to come to earth for us. He showed the apostles an example of service and love, and He calls me to serve  and love also- not in my own strength, but in His.

John 3:30

He must increase, but I must decrease

    Thanks for your focus on John 10:10 and for sharing Matt Maher’s song, “Alive again.” Like you, I want to be better at relying on His strength and not on my own. Visiting from FMF. A joyous Resurrection season to you.

      Thank you for stopping by. Relying on God’s strength and not my own is something I need to remind myself of daily. I hope you have a lovely weekend.

      I can’t take credit for the word cloud. I found it on Pinterest.:-) I thought of the Matt Marher song as soon as I saw the prompt was alive. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
