I thank God I’m not poor, I believe I’m better off than Middle class, a friend refered to me as “rich” today, while chatting…but I’ll rather be flourishing…
According to G.O (Pastor E.A Adeboye ), “rich” doesn’t cut it…”wealthy” is not enough…”flourishing” is the state that every child of God should aspire to be at…
Thinking about the word “flourishing” today, I decided to get a better understanding of the word…so, I consulted the dictionary. My research produced the following dictionary definitions for “flourishing”;
- to grow well or luxuriantly; to thrive
growing vigorously; thriving; prosperous
to do or fare well; to prosper
to be in a period of highest productivity, excellence, or influence
Waoh! I particularly love the last definition…I would rather be “in a period of highest productivity, excellence, or influence”, than be just “rich”.
On another level, I miss hubby…one of the perks of his job is frequent international travel…I don’t complain because it’s a priviledge not everyone gets, plus its usually only for a week at a time.
You need to have heard my “heenn?” (i.e. whaaat?) when he told me he was going to be away for 3 weeks (though within the country). Three weeks? Ha! I’ll go with you oh…I started grumbling. Then he said “haba! do you honestly believe I’ld be in this country, and not see you for 3 weeks? of course I’ll be home at weekends”…hmmm…my mind settled…its day 3 of week 1, and I miss him sore…
