What does it mean to ‘thrive?’
The definition of ‘Thrive’ is to flourish and succeed. So often times when we think of words like “flourish” and “succeed,” we can easily start to think of our own definitions. Maybe when you think of “thrive” or “succeed” you think of starting your business. Maybe you think of finally meeting your future husband or moving to a different city to be around more people like you. Or maybe, you don’t even know what “success” looks like.
Wherever you are on that journey, this month’s devotional is to encourage you to see that if you desire to flourish and succeed in life, it started with who you are in Christ. It starts with knowing that when you grow in your faith, you will begin to grow in every aspect of your life.
Even when you’re faced with pressure to succeed at work or in school, or you’re faced with distractions from friends or a love interest, it’s never too early and it’s never too late to get to a point where you shift your focus to things above. It’s never too late to realize that what it means to thrive is rooted in Christ and not in the world…and that’s a beautiful thing. God has an amazing plan for your life and your success starts with who you are in Christ. Whether you’re in college, starting a new job or a business, or currently praying about what God would have for you to do, hold onto this! You thrive because of Him!
