Don't Just Survive... THRIVE!

“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”John 10:10
When I read the above verse I wonder sometimes how I can do more than just survive. Jesus tells me that He not only came to give me life, but that I can have life more abundantly. How can we have abundant life when there is so much pain and suffering all around? Our prayer lists are longer than our praise list, so how can we live abundantly when so many of us are barely surviving?

Thrive! Yes. We have abundant life in Him! Sometimes I think it might be a choice! Spmetimes we have to choose to LOOK and FIX our eyes on Jesus...then no matter what we can thrive alive in Him!
