HOW TO FLOURISH, IN A SEASON OF HEAVINESS

Because flourishing is the aim, right?When God has burned a passion in your heart, you don't just want to get through each day, you want to actively move toward it. ~ But how do you bloom when circumstances lay a heavy burden on you? ~ The gospel message is the ultimate social disruptor. It takes the world's answer to a problem and flips it. The difference is so drastic, so counter-cultural that many miss it. ~ The Gospel answer to this one is NOT self-reliance and self-care, but surrender. ~ The world says, focus on yourself. The gospel says focus on Jesus. ~ I know which I'd rather rely upon. ~ When life gets heavy, the solution is not to double down on our own self-reliance: a paper-thin version of what God can give. But to turn to the one who has everything we need. ~ Jesus said, "I am the vine, you are the branches". We are designed to draw our strength from Him. As long as we stay connected (tell Him our problems, ask Him for help, rely on Him) we have a way stronger power source than relying on ourselves alone. ~ Imagine cutting off a tendril from the vine (the way we do when we rely on ourselves). We may be able to extend its vitality with refrigeration, but, ultimately it shrivels and weakens without its power source: the vine. ~ Connect back to your power source, for even a few minutes a day, and see what a difference it makes. ~ John 15:1
