MORE AND LESS

More purposeful, intentional living ~ less going through the motions.

More "What is the good in this day and what good can I bring it?" ~ less "What can I take from it and what is lacking and wrong?"

More prayerful response in my relationships ~ less knee-jerk reactions.

More thanksgiving ~ less complaining.

More interceding ~ less judging.

More reaching out ~ less pulling away.

More order and planning ~ less last minute chaos and stress.

More frugality ~ less spending.

More trusting and believing ~ less worrying.

More grace for myself and others ~ less impatience.

More hope ~ less giving in to discouragement.

More focus on TRUTH ~ less leeway for the enemy to harass me with "facts".

More worship ~ less focus on self.

More beauty from ashes ~ less "pit" mentality.

More focusing on the positive ~ less being weighed down with negative messages.

More faith ~ less fear.

More tackling the hard stuff ~ less looking for the easier path.

More courage and stepping out of my comfort zone ~ less playing it safe and allowing anxiety to dictate my life.

More creative endeavors ~ less stale activities and idleness.

More honest, open communication ~ less passive-agressiveness and stewing.

More follow through on acts of kindness ~ less missed opportunities.

More or less ~ the choice is ours to make.

"You're blessed when you're at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule."
~Matthew 5:3, The Message
