A life full of everything you need to sustain yourself in joy and purpose.
This word kept bubbling to the surface for me as I thought about something I wanted to focus on for the year. And honestly? It made me feel a little squirmy. I didn’t like, LOVE, it, you know? Because when I think of “abundance” I typically think of money. And I didn’t want my word of the year to be about…..money.
But yet, that word kept coming to me. So I decided to do a little digging into what the word Abundance means.
Sure, it can mean monetary things like- prosperity, riches, and fortune (like I had thought)
But, it can also mean: bounty, plenty, thriving, great amount, supply, myriad, plenitude.
Antonyms of Abundance are: few, lack, little, need, scarcity, want, inadequacy, deficiency.
Then I hit up the good book to see what was waiting for me in its pages. Turns out? Quite a few things:
2 Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
Deuteronomy 28:12 The Lord will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none.
John 10:10 I have come that they may have life and have it abundantly.
Psalm 65:11 You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance.
Psalm 66: 8-12 Praise our God, all peoples, let the sound of his praise be heard; he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping. For you, God, tested us; you refined us like silver. You brought us into prison and laid burdens on our backs. You let people ride over our heads; we went through fire and water, but you brought us to a place of abundance.
In 2019, I want a year of Abundance.
We are ready for all of it- simply more. An abundant life. An abundant 2019.
