If I simply let life happen to me, I will float downstream to the dredges of mediocrity, no matter what my skill set looks like. If I live intentionally (prayer, caring, thankfulness, hope, etc), then I’ll discover the breathtaking mountain peaks of peace, patience, joy, self control, and success.
As it says in the bible:
- “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
- “By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.”
- “And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments.”
- “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control; against such things there is no law.”
- Jeremiah 29:11, John 15:8, 1 John 2:3, Galatians 5:22 ESVST.
If I intentionally make time for what I know I need to do, if I actively look for His answers, then I will, step by step, experience God fulfilling His promises in my life.
I choose to live my life intentionally.
