[Jesus said,] “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Our lives are filled with more of everything—responsibilities, choices, options, obligations—and yet rarely do we feel full and satisfied. Our days are crammed full of stuff, but our hearts aren’t full of joy and peace. The abundant life seems a distant ideal, something we long for but can’t experience.
But we can.
Our primary need each day is to know Christ, grow closer to him, and know his peace. You don’t have to block out hours of your day to spend in prayer and Bible study. It’s great if you can, but your schedule is probably going to remain overflowing with obligations. Invite God’s presence into those days the same way you would seek him if you went away to a beautiful setting for a retreat. His peace can transform the way we go through our day, reminding us that we have more than enough of whatever it requires.

Pray: “Jesus, thank you for the way I can experience a full life and a full heart. Thank you for the abundant life you bring.”
