Imagine




Imagine this…





Imagine you awake every morning with a zest for life and purpose in your step.





Imagine that you actually feel grateful as your mouth utters thanks for a bowl of cereal and cup of coffee.





Imagine that you drive to work, praying for God to use you and interrupt your day.





Imagine that you trust Him to sustain you and carry you.





Imagine that you change the world, one smile at a time.





Imagine that you encourage one hurting heart each day.





Imagine that when your world caves in, you feel joy because you believe God is faithful.





Imagine …

Y’all, this is the life that God is calling us to live. God tells us in the Bible, “My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” (John 10:10)





It starts with the gospel. Because God sent His only Son, Jesus, to stand in the place of our sin, we can have this abundant life. We can live freely, knowing that we are His, not ours.





Imagine if we actually believed that.

Thank you for these wonderful Words from the Lord. So good to hear them from you again. We are beginning to pray over the Celebration event July 30. Excited to hear what the Lord will speak through you and see lives changed that Day. Love & blessings.

Hey Lindsey! It has been a while but I still have you tucked in my heart. It's amazing how when I think about my own journey you are in on that and we have never even uttered a word to each other...you are such an encouragment to me. I am excited about the building of your house..of course that applies to the building of your spiritual house as well. The Lord is in the building and rebuilding business, isn't he! Oh I praise His faithfulness, Lindsey! I continue to pray for you and thank the Lord for your new season. I hope to hear from you soon...much love, sunshine, and praise sent your way! Blessings,Suzanne Moore

I've been lurking round your blog for months now but have never commented before.

Thank you so much for your words and challenge from the Lord. You have been a great encouragement to me.

I am leading a bible study tomorrow and this would fit in exactly right with the theme. Would you mind if I used it please?

Beautiful, Lindsey. I've been pondering just this lately. Thanks for sharing it!
