Till It Overflows…

Your dreams were not meant for someone else to fulfill, therefore you must choose to live them. Dreams do not come true without some form of action being taken. (Cinderella had to go to the ball, Belle had to take her father’s place in the beast’s castle, Ariel had to give up her voice.) These fairytale characters physically did things during the time leading up to meeting Prince Charming. God did not give you life so you could spend it waiting. In fact, Jesus came to push you into a form of action. Check it out:

“The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” – John 10:10

I chose the Amplified version because I really like how it ends there – till it overflows. Is your life so full of joy and adventure and excitement that you literally feel as if it is overflowing? Neither does mine. But I want to feel that way. I want to feel that way so badly. Impossible? No. Difficult? Absolutely. Worth it? You bet. Live your life “till it overflows.” That’s the secret. That is the great mystery of the fairytale heroine. That is what makes her life so enticing. She lives each day to the extreme, and the joy that is in her heart can’t help but overflow. She has a song in her heart that she cannot keep from singing. That fairytale character can be you. Enjoy life in abundance, to the full, till it overflows…
