The Best You Possible

, by

How do you see YOU?

How would you know if you are your best “you” possible?

We strive to become all we are meant to be but what does this mean?

Strong… healthy… fast… smart… educated… skilled?

Moral… ethical… fair… understanding?

While putting the finishing touches on Discovering God’s Plan, I asked this exact question.

God wants us to be everything He created us to be but what is the practical measurement of being the best Christian possible?

To me personally, it comes down to a single word: RESILIENT—the ability to withstand or recover quickly from difficult conditions.

Life is a constant rollercoaster of issues, joys, problems, opportunities, fear, uncertainty, doubt, and confidence. I believe that God knows the troubles we share… and expects us to be resilient.

What word would you use to define the best you possible?

Now, become it!

God bless,
