It is far too easy to become complacent about your current health status. Many think their present sufferings are “normal” life for them. They think to themselves, I guess this is just the way it’s going to be.

Think back to when you were a child. Your imagination was limitless. You could run wild and everything seemed possible. Was there ever a point as a child when you imagined waking up with no energy or loading up with coffee to survive each day? NEVER! When we were kids, we thought we could conquer the world.

But now, it is normal to return home from work and lay on the couch, because you “deserve it after a long, hard day…”, not having enough energy to play with your kids, or invest in your home life. The crazy thing is, this is not the way we were created to live. Actually, this is far from it. There is value in relaxing, resting, and rewarding yourself for your hard work, but we were created to feel healthy, energetic, and active each day.

Why is it that millions of Americans simply live to “make it” through each day. We live as if we were created to survive life, rather than to thrive. Is it possible that we are unaware of our potential to thrive because we have grown accustomed to just “getting by”?

We were created for a better life and my wife and I have found so much joy in doing what we can to live life to the fullest and help others along the way. For us, this journey begins with the calling of Jesus to thrive.

In John 10:10, Jesus says, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.”

Additionally, Jeremiah 29:11 says,

“ For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

You were created to thrive, not just survive. This is so hard to understand when every day seems more difficult to make it through. We believe there are ways to change this.

This doesn’t have to be complicated, and you certainly don’t have to worry about if you can do it, because you were made for it.

Thriving each day starts with intentionality. Want to know my formula for the elevated life?

Get to know Jesus. Take care of your body. Done.

That is it. It has been that simple for me, and it can be that simple for you. You were created to thrive and things like chronic pain and low-energy are getting in the way of the life you were created to live.

You can change this. You can thrive.
