Blessed is she who believed that the Lord will fulfill His promises to her. Luke 1:45
God wants you to live a blessed life! God wants you to be fulfilled in what you do. He wants you to be empowered by His Word and what He has planned for you. Yes, He has plans for you. Whether they are big or what some would call small, He planned it, for a reason. All you have to do is believe that He will give you meaning, that His promises from the Bible will be fulfilled. There are ways, steps to take to live that blessed life we all want so much.
First, you must have a relationship with God. It is not enough to claim we know Him and do nothing to show it. We are to live to serve Him, not others and not the enemy. God is the only way to true life and happiness. Tithing our finances is another step in living that blessed life. Many feel this can be overlooked, why do we need to give money to the church. This is, in fact, one of the most important steps in servitude. Tithing your money will bless you in many ways, starting financially. When you give your money with a happy, generous attitude, you will begin to see God’s work in your life and finances.
Blessings others with what we are given. This can be our money, or our talents. One of my talents is teaching, I just love to see kids grow, especially spiritually. I give time every week to teaching on Sundays and again on Wednesdays. This is the highlight of my week. Going to church and seeing their faces, helping them learn and grow in Christ. We are to improve our abilities, whatever they are. Like I said, I enjoy teaching. In order to teach kids about Christ, I must learn about Him. Each year I go on a women’s retreat to renew myself in the Lord. I use this time to reflect and pray about the year so far and the year to come. It is a weekend full of praise, worship and breakout sessions so we can learn the best way to serve Christ and be fulfilled in our work for Him.
