The Daily Breath of God
Thursday, October 24 2013
Don't let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ. For in Christ lives all the fullness of God in a human body. So you also are complete through your union with Christ. Colossians 2:8-10 NLTMany times along our journey we look for that which will give us some fullness or a sense of meaning or completeness. For in it, we think we will find our worth and passion. Without it we seem to struggle with who we are and where we are going. If that turns out to be our way of feeling valued, we will continue to set up something that gives us a sense of fulfillment and bring us a sense of value concerning ourselves. Grace lets us experience something that is more than fame, more than wealth and more than good health, all of which do bring joy, but never seem to be enough no matter how much we have. The freshness of grace is to live in a sense of wow, that we have been given the greatest of all things, our union with Christ. There can be nothing more magnificent or fulfilling than God himself. On this new day may you acknowledge your life in Christ with a heart of thanksgiving and praise. Smile, relax and rejoice for you are dearly loved in the grace of God found in Jesus the Christ. Let your emotions and thinking smile, relax and bless. This is a good day to enjoy.
