I just wanted to do a quick chit chat in between the Elul posts. I hope you are enjoying them as much as I am. I know I still haven’t fully caught up yet but I’ll have yesterday’s up for you today as soon as I can charge my phone and I’ll be working on today’s post after that.
What I wanted to share was simple but I thought it was worth sharing. Lately I’ve strongly felt the need to make myself better every day. I know we all want that but I feel that it’s changing from a want to a must. I always heard about abundance…
The thief has come to steal, kill and destroy but I have come so that you may have life and have it abundantly -John 10:10
Abundance is an overflow, it’s more than enough, more than satisfying. I
want to must live in that abundance. That’s why I’m doing things like #BlogElul to repent, I post affirmations, I want to increase my vocabulary so I usually post definitions on Instagram, I even post scriptures. This is in no way to try and paint a picture that I have it all together. Trust me, I don’t. It’s just a burning desire to get better. It’s not for a man or a new job either. I just want to see what I’m made of. When I die I want it said of me that “She didn’t let fear stop her, in the midst of adversity she made contributions without complaints. She did everything she could with everything she had, no excuses.” I want people to remember me as being fun and fair and loving. Now I don’t plan on departing any time soon but there’s no time like the present to begin to build your legacy. So why not now? And if I get better, you get better and that’s success to me. I just wanted to share that. If you have any other suggestions about how we can all get better, please let me know.
Thanks in advance,
