Abundance is defined as “an extremely plentiful or over sufficient quantity or supply.” John 10:10 says, “I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”

God wants us to enjoy our lives right now, living each day to the fullest. We don’t have to wait until tomorrow, next week, or next year to be happy. We can choose to be happy today. Jesus came to bring salvation, but He also came so we can walk in daily fellowship with Him.

God yearns to have a relationship with us. He knows everything about us, because He created us. He knows every desire in our hearts, because He has given us those dreams and aspirations. Not only does He know about them, He wants to give us those desires. He wants our hearts to be fulfilled. Psalm 36:4 says, “Delight yourselves also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”

Life is raw and unforgiving at times, but there is also so much beauty in the authenticity that life has to offer. Each of us has a purpose for our lives. I would like you to know that you are not alone in this journey. Whether your purpose is being in business, a stay-at-home mom, a working mom, a daughter, or in ministry, we all have our own race to run. The Abundance Blog offers material about spirituality, marriage, and motherhood that I feel has been relevant in my life.

I pray as you read, you will draw inspiration for yourself and feel a spirit of camaraderie. I think tart relying on the relationships of others, we will begin to fulfill Christ’s intent for Christian community. I love this passage in 2 Timothy 1:8-9:

“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord…Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began…”
