The bible speaks about God's ability to bless us abundantly. God's love is described as being abounding. God’s desire for our life is the exceedingly abundant. How do we get to live the life that God desires for us? Follow God’s word. Heed his instruction. Make prayerful decisions. Seek the counsel of elders. Ask for wisdom. Wait for godly answers. Accept the consequences of past decisions and make an effort to be a good steward moving forward. The abundant life is within reach, but it does require you to do things differently. Change is how we get to live the life God desires for us. Acceptance is the path to the abundant life. Obedience is the key to successfully navigating God’s will for our lives, because it won’t always make sense. God uses the foolish to confound the wise. Trust the plan, but more importantly, trust God.

There is nothing new under the sun. The world has an ugly history of hate. This hate has been directed at minorities for years. Fear what's different. Rape. Pillage. Colonize. We've always stolen each other's resources. We've always been afraid of change. We've always enslaved. We've always murdered and lynched under the guise of medical experiments or government sanctions. We have a history of oppression and privilege masked as tradition and laws. This is America. This is the world we live in. What are we gonna do about it?

The Bible talks about having a fervent mind, effectual fervent prayers, and possessing a fervent spirit. Our thoughts should be passionate and deliberate. Our prayers should be a profession of our faith. Our spirit should be expectant. I say should because some of us have lost our intensity. Our passionate flames are smoldering. We are still on fire, but our flames can be extinguished by disappointment. Fan the flames. Ignite your passion. Renew your strength. Change your mind. Raise your expectation. Pray effectual fervent prayers. Love fervently.
"The whole point of being alive is to evolve into the complete person you were intended to be."- Oprah Winfrey
Imagination. Reinvention. Evolution. I can't imagine being one way your whole life and them transforming into someone completely different in your latter years, but it happens all the time. Bruce became Caitlyn right before our eyes. People retire and start brand new careers. Married couples become divorcees. Change is inevitable. Life will cause you to evolve. Embrace it. Sometimes, we don't see the whole picture of our lives. Adapt. Evolve. It's easier than extinction. Become the complete person you were always intended to be.

When was the last time you bucked the system? When was the last time you challenged authority? When was the last time you were a catalyst for change in your environment? Change begins with you. It can be as simple as a change of heart. Change your mind. Change your thinking. Change your perspective. Change your speech. Change your attitude. Be dynamic. Be a force to be reckoned with and force that can't be ignored.
Change is all around us. The weather changes. The seasons change. Time changes. People change. Life happens all around us, yet many of us struggle with change. Change is a constant. Embrace it. Do something new. Cut your hair. Try that new restaurant. Take the scenic route to work. Change is good for the soul. Sometimes, change is the very thing we need.
