There is more to life!
The overflow comes from God! As I was being tempted to tear away from my devotional time and get started on the tasks of the day, I was reminded that "the overflow comes from God". While I do have my chores to do, invoices to do, and kids to tend to; there is something very vital to this day that only God can give me if I want to live in the "overflow of God's blessing"; if I want to have life more abundantly. To me living in the "overflow" of God's blessing means you get something from Him every morning that helps you start your day with something extra. Something that you can't get from you cup of coffee. Something that causes everything you do to prosper and multiply. I'm coming to Jesus this morning. The Jesus who said "Take on my yoke and learn of me, my yoke is easy and my burden is light". This is so I don't get stressed out. This same Jesus also said "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me shall never hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst". This means I won't get burnt out. This same Jesus said "I came that they may have life and have it more abundantly". This means that I can live everyday to the full. Thank you Jesus, You are the way, the truth, and the life. Amen
