Desiring More From Life
For too many years in my life I had a strong feeling that I wasn’t going to get what I wanted from life. I had accepted that my life would for the most part be hard and painful with a few pleasant experiences along the way. Some how this didn’t sit well with me. Didn’t the Bible promise that we would receive life and receive it abundantly?
The question then became why was I not living what I would define as an abundant life? Why did there have to be so much pain in it? A lot of pain came from my sin and my own wrong choices but there were times that I felt that I had gotten a bad shake through no fault of my own. Was I wrong to expect more for my life?
The conclusion that I came to was that I was not. After all, God cannot lie. The question was now why was I not experiencing more of the manifestation of His Glory? The answer that I came to was that I would have to diligently pursue God, something that is sometimes called “pressing in”. (to be continued).
