Sunday Style - Living Your Best Life

Sunday Style - Living Your Best Life

Happy Sunday!

Living my best life is a life that is full of joy and peace. 

What brings me the most joy and peace? I find that keeping Christ first in my life, worshiping Him and keeping Him as my center focus, brings me the most peace and joy. 

I read in my devotions this week about how our creator is meant to be the center of our existence, like the earth orbits around the sun. 

How do we keep Christ center? Living to enjoy His presence, serving Him and learning to please Him. This will keep us in proper orbit.

James 4:8 (NLT)
Come close to God, and God will come close to you.

I was thinking about how the earth, other planets and stars always stay in proper orbit. So many problems could happen if it got out of alignment? What kind of 'problems' happen in our lives when we get out of alignment and go off course?

The challenge is trying to correct our course and do our best to stay in proper orbit around the Son. 

Psalms 73:28(NLT)
But as for me, how good it is to be near God! I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter, and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.

God's amazing love and patience draws us in like gravity. The Holy Spirit also gently taps our heart and reminds us to seek Him first, to read our Bible, to pray and spend time in His presence.

Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

That's when that joy and peace start to flow again and you feel centered, orbiting around the Son. 

Then you realize you are living your best life in Him!

Ephesians 3:16-17 (NLT)
I pray that from his glorious, unlimited resources he will empower you with inner strength through his Spirit. Then Christ will make his home in your hearts as you trust in him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong.

Blessings,
Lori
