Sadly many are happy with their salvation and stop there, but I beseech you not to stop there! There is so much more on this side of Heaven to experience. Won’t you become a living sacrifice reflecting Jesus in the earth walking in love and power?
When this verse went through my thoughts, there was one lone bird far off in the sky. At first, I wasn’t sure if it was a bird or a plane, but as it drew closer, I could see it was a bird and its wings were straight out, no flapping. This was a pretty large bird and had a good size wing span.
One rainy, cloudy, dreary dark, depressing day a few weeks ago it occurred to me that even though that was the current situation, the sun was still shining. How did I know this?

The sun was not visible, but I could now see what I couldn’t an hour ago.
The most practical thing you can do to take care of your family or business is to cultivate an overflowing heart. From this focused lifestyle, everything will flow. Don’t be one to say I’m too busy to sit around beholding the glory of God’s heart.
