If it’s toxic, let it go!

As human beings, we tend to want to hold on to things even if they are not good for us. One of the deterrents to living an abundant life is investing in unhealthy relationships. Relationships are a part of the human experience we all need them to survive, but the toxic ones we can do without. We should never become so dependent on another person that we allow them to dictate the terms of our happiness.

Abundance does not mean settling.

Psalm 24: 1-3 reminds us that the entire earth and all its abundance is in the realm of a God who desires all good things for those whom He loves. If this is true, then why do so many people settle for less?

Grow where you are planted.

A fact we must face is that we are all called to do everything. Some are called to defend the rights of others, and they do say with a passion that burns within them.

Growing in abundance.

It is not easy to accept, but as we begin to understand what it means to live abundantly, we will also outgrow people in our lives. Abundant living often involves having a different perception of what is most valuable in life from the average person.

Stop making excuses!

If we don’t want to do something, we will make every excuse to justify why it can’t be done. Sometimes it easier to make an excuse than to deal with the fact that in trying we might fail.

The measure of abundant living.

The desire to live a fulfilling life is at the top of the list of most people’s expectations. People want to know that what they are doing or pursuing will bring them joy, happiness and a sense of accomplishment.

You are not the job.

If you were to die on the job it is almost certain that within the shortest possible time you would be replaced. Your desk would have been cleared out, cubicle rearranged and the files and documents you guarded with your life would have become the prized possessions of another.

Take a break!

Take a break! Life is interesting, but it can also be difficult. We are focused on getting the maximum benefit out of each hour of the day sometimes we run ourselves ragged. There are so many things that demand our attention and we often fool ourselves into believing...

All things working together: Romans 8: 38

This happens to be one of my favourite passages in the bible. Even before I fully understood what it was teaching I was drawn to it on several occasions because it exudes comfort to my soul. I deliberately set out to study it looking at the context to see if what I...

Removing clutter.

Since purchasing our house my wife and I have realized that it creates an unhealthy environment to have an accumulation of useless stuff. At times we have to bring our army of friends and family to help clear the mountain of unnecessary things gathered over time. What...

Take time to be ourselves.

Take time to be ourselves. With the many things that are competing for our attention daily, it easy is to lose sight of who we are in the mix. We waste so many valuable hours trying to gain the approval of others we often have to transform into personas that makes us...

The price of success.

The price of success. A common saying goes anything that is worth having is worth dying for may hold more truths than most people would admit. The majority of people want to be successful in their various endeavours, but few are willing to pay the price that comes...

Keep Pressing On!

It is easy to get distracted when you are trying to find your purpose. So many things are competing for our attention, and if we are not careful, we get sidetracked doing many things and accomplishing nothing.

When life gets in the way of living.

If ten persons are asked what they want most from life seven of the ten will probably say happiness. Happiness and fulfilment are what most people long for. Even with this intense desire, many are unhappy and unsatisfied with their current situation. In pursuit of the...

Life is just for living.

I speak a lot about abundant living and most times what is meant is misunderstood. For me, abundant living is living in such a way every hour of our day is maximised. We get so caught up in accumulating material things, accolades, certificates and chasing after...
