Hello there, beautiful one!
Did you know that God has designed a glorious life for you? Who, Me? Yes, You! Romans 3:21-24 from The Message translation speaks of this glorious life that God has willed for each of us. It says that we are completely incapable of living this glorious life God has willed for us on our own BUT the good news is… God did it for us. Out of sheer generosity he put us in right standing with himself. A pure gift. He got us out of the mess we’re in and restored us to where he always wanted us to be. And he did it by means of Jesus Christ.
Dictionary defines Glorious as: brilliantly beautiful, delightful, enjoyable, wonderful, magnificent, splendid, full of glory. To be known by many. Grandeur. Making a strong or vivid impression. Bright, shining, divine, radiant, brilliant, gorgeous & dazzling. Heavenly, famous, noted, celebrated, noble, honored, elevated, triumphant, eminent, renowned, proud, splendid, dreamy, tremendous, great, fantastical, fabulous & out of this world!!
These are the kind of words that describe our glorious lives friends! Ponder these and take them to the deepest core of who you are- may these life-giving words be imparted into your identity.
Beautiful friends, God has a gloriously beautiful plan for your life and for mine. He is far greater and more good than we can possibly even imagine. He made a way for us to live our lives gloriously against all the odds.
When you give your life to Jesus you then have the helper, the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus living on the inside of you. He is ethe one who empowers us to live our lives gloriously.
We can respond kindly to our spouses and our children. We can cultivate the language of thanksgiving. We can choose to meditate on the good, the lovely, the beautiful & the praiseworthy. We can bring order and beauty to our home through organizational routines. We can choose to eat and drink life-giving, nutritious foods and we can fit in a regular exercise for a healthy body, heart & mind. We can cultivate a healthy, fun-loving, encouraging, best-friend and romantic relationship with our spouse. We can raise our kids with the help of the Holy Spirit. We can enjoy every season of parenting. We can have a home full of peace, love, generosity & joy. A home where everyone who lives there and everyone who comes in feels valued and important. We can do hard things and we can go through difficult seasons with grace, wisdom, peace and joy.
We are in this together, my beautiful friends. We can live this life gloriously because it’s not on us- It’s our generous Jesus who lives through us. When it seems difficult, lean into Jesus, He will help. Guard your time with him and his word on a daily basis, if possible. He wants to love on you, he wants to tell you who he has created you to be. He will remind you of who you really are and whose you are! He will lead you in this glorious life that he has for you. He loves you so much.
Blessings and all my love, my dear friends.
