Today is a day to reflect over our readings for the last week. Our last reading this week was John 10 where Jesus declared that He came to give us abundant life. When He declared that He came to give us abundant life He was not talking about wealth, power, or even material comfort. For the abundant life that Jesus offers is not quantity but quality of life. A life where those amazing fruits of The Spirit can grow and blossom in the mist of trials, suffering, pain, and grief. For an abundant life in Christ is not dependent on circumstances but connection! For as long as we are connected with God The Father, God The Son, and God The Spirit we can have joy and peace in the mist of all the chaos that is swirling around our life each and every day. For the abundant life rests solely in our trust and faith in God!
