Friend, I stumble a lot, but I’m passionate about cultivating a life well-lived. Not a perfect life, but a life by God and for God.
I believe we can cultivate a life well-lived no matter what we’ve been through, what we’re going through, or what’s ahead of us.
In all honesty, I don’t always feel well about life. In fact I’ve dealt with anxiety, depression, grief, possible PTSD, disordered eating, self-harm, date rapes, and more.
Not typically the picture of a stellar Christian life is it? At least, not the way we tend to think of it.
Maybe it’s time we understood a new definition of living well. Not based on how well we do, but on the well of hope, truth, and living water which comes from God.
I want to see Christ followers rise up in their faith because God is more than our circumstances. No matter how bad our circumstances get, God never changes.
Cultivating a life well-lived means experiencing more of God and letting the experiences of God change us from the inside out. It means being transformed into his image through the good and bad times, through the easy and the hard.
A life well-lived never denies emotions or the reality of struggles, yet it doesn’t stay stuck in negative patterns either.
As believers we do not need to live defeated by the enemy. We mustn’t. We must fight the enemy and rest in the God who already defeated Satan.
Let’s live well in the midst of every challenge because we have a God who gives life.
We’ll pursue Christ in ways which go beyond surface level, short-term fixes. We’ll cultivate the things which bring lasting change as they help us become who we were designed to be.
I won’t tell you it will be easy. But I will say it is worth it.
