John 10:10 - The Abundant Life!
John 10:10 (NKJV) I have come that they may
have life, and that they may have it more
John 10:10 (MSG) I came so they can have
real and eternal life, more and better life than
they ever dreamed of.
The other day I found my four-year-old
daughter, Stella, on the floor in front of her closet
in a cluster of shoes. She'd try one on and
toss it when it didn't meet her qualifications.
"Might I ask what on earth are you doing?"
"I'm finding the right shoes."
"Just pick some! It's time to go!"
"Mommy, I need to find the best pair for
I can honestly say this was a new one.
One Sunday after church she flung off her shoes
as soon as we walked in the door and told me to
throw them away because they were like tigers.
When I gave her a puzzled look she explained how
they bite and claw her feet. Needless to say,
those shoes are no more. But skipping shoes?
My shoe philosophy is a lot more
practical. I wear whatever matches, or what is most
comfortable. Occasionally I'm fashion minded, pairing
just the right boots with an outfit, or a dress
with heels. But I've never really considered what
shoes are best for skipping.
The thing is, we were going to the
grocery store. There were no plans for skipping per
se, but Stella's choice of shoes reflects her
general outlook on the day. She didn't know and
couldn't control what else was on the schedule. But
she was planning on skipping.
I want my outlook to be more like that -
to reflect more trust in Jesus when He says "I
came to give life .in all its fullness." John
10:10 (NCV). If His purpose for me is abundance, I
need to plan on joy. no matter what the day
brings. by Gwen Ford Faulkenberry
Faith Step: Make a to-do list for your
day. Regardless of what's on it, don your
skipping shoes before you step out, trusting that His
plan for you is good. [Mornings With Jesus 2018
