Mundane Life or an Adventurous one? What will we choose?

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written by: Teresa Criswell

 "This is the day the Lord has made.  We will rejoice and be glad in it."
~ Psalm 118:24 ~

Another day.
The same routine.
O so mechanical.

Does it seem our life choices are attempting to transform us into treadmills of the mundane; the 'same-o, same-o'?

For some, the mundane can be the gloominess of life.
Perhaps and surprisingly for others, the mundane may be the beauty surrounding you and now you don't even notice it anymore.

How do we violently explode out of the mechanical, mundane way of life?
How do we begin to live with adventure and appreciation?
You know that appreciation as though it was the first time we saw our children's faces.
Or perhaps that first moment you met your spouse.
How about the refreshing moment you made yourself aware to this Amazing God through Jesus Christ by the power of the Holy Spirit?

Are you ready for the prescription?  Are you sure?  Okay!  Well, here we go...
Realize...'this is the day the Lord has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it!"
Today is our day to be aware that this is the very day...the very day that the Lord has made.  And because of this amazing realization - we can't help but rejoice and be glad in it!!!!

If I say I am captivated by His great love...then as my pastor would say, "Notify your face that you're saved."  Let us notify those around us with our glad hearts, our eagerness to help someone, even those who tend to shun us.  Let us shake up the hardened ground of the hearts around us by revealing His great love through us onto those who desperately need God's amazing love. In our obedience, even our hearts will soften to who we are called to!

You want to change the world around you, with His great love?

  1. WOW! That left me with goosebumps and tears! What a powerful video and what an honest and true post this is! Yes! Wake up, O sleeper...for such a time as this!
    Teresa, you shine! You always shine His light and your gifted words are a reflection of the beauty of Jesus at work in you! This is the day the Lord has made and I am rejoicing in it with you! Jesus, man of joy (despite all he had to endure for us, he never lost his joy in knowing he was voluntarily going to the cross for us) is offering to live his joy in and through all of us now and forever! I hope everyone watches all the way to the end of that song/video! Thank you, sister and bless you!
