Even zeal is not good without knowledge, and the one who acts hastily sins.
Making it a habit to slow down and think for two seconds is life changing and life giving. For this brings a heightened awareness of your surroundings, of people and their feelings [mindsight], of the beauty of nature, of your own life.
To slow down and actually take in your life, to stop and smell the roses is to live at a higher consciousness. To practice the presence of God, to live each moment in purposeful attention to His being with you, is to enjoy life at the level Jesus broke open for us.
God is in each moment communicating with you. It is up to you to “tune in” to His frequency and hear Him. It is the ignoring of this fact that plunges us into apathy, despair, and discontent. God is there in the midst of every single minute detail of your day and life. Acknowledge it. This is the comforting game-changer.
“I have come so that they may have life and have it in abundance.”
Jesus came to earth so that His followers would have abundant life. A life of abundance flowing into others’ lives.
It is good to ask ourselves from time to time, “Am I living a life of spiritual and emotional abundance?” If not, why the heck not? That is what Jesus brought for everybody to have access to. Whatever the reason we may not being living abundantly, we know it is not His fault. though there is much out of our control, we can always respond to life out of abundance.
