When you feel frantic about building your perfect life or when you feel overwhelmed about what you should be doing, remember this:
Simply surrender to God and ask Him to bring abundant life to you.
He will. That’s what He does. The promise of John 10:10 stands: “I have come that you may have life and have it abundantly.” I think of the best life, the one you and I long for, and then I remember that God is the pathway to this life. In fact, He Himself is our life. God will not withhold Himself from you, and in Him, you will find what you’re looking for.
Cry out to Jesus about your loneliness and your sense of missing out. Cry out to Jesus about whatever seems off, lacking, or empty inside of you. Cry out about your friendships, your classes, and your schedule. Just go to Him and ask Him to order your life and arrange everything concerning you. Give Him your whole life.
This abundant life isn’t about changing anything externally right now. It’s about moving deeper into the abiding life with Christ. Soon, supernatural things will happen to us. We’ll find ourselves in situations that delight our soul. We’ll find our circumstances arranged by the Holy Spirit to bring us to people and places that resonate beautifully with God’s design for us. We end our striving to craft our day. We instead offer the day up to the Lord and ask for His instructions. We stay sensitive all day long to the promptings of the Holy Spirit.
And we find we’ve entered into the life we never knew could be ours.
