Inspiration from T. D. Jakes

In June, I posted the following on my Facebook page:


We are conditioned to think the "promised" or "abundant" life referenced in God's Word is about monetary gain.  Although financial security is a part of that life, it is so much more!

The promised abundant life I'm enjoying and nurturing each day (to the best of my ability) involves peace of mind, good health for my family, friends and myself. My life is filled with laughter, fellowship with lovers of God, the blessing to share love and time by serving others. I rejoice because I can go to bed and wake up knowing all my needs are met! You see I've HAD a Paul-season! *wink* (Philipians 4:12 AMP)

The promised and abundant life is available to EVERYONE and God's promises are shared in His Word!  It may take us a while to discover them as I share in After the Sixth: Notes from a Spiritual Journey, but when we're ready, they are there for us to learn, embrace and see them manifest in our lives!

So what is the "work" you ask? It may be different for you. My work includes/included healing soul wounds (deep work there), forgiving, studying God's word, seeking God through prayer/worship/meditation for His guidance and instructions for my life. I took some spiritual growth courses that have changed my life! And on that one day of rest? It's not really rest.  Spend time praising your Father! Thanking Him!

Now these are just the thoughts and opinions of one person. This is how I feast on God's divine Word. Again, your experience may be different, but I do pray you HAVE an experience and taste and see that the Lord is good!!
