Sometimes Monday’s can be a challenge. Am I rested and recharged for the coming week or am I down and dreading the week ahead?

I find there are people who speak “words of life,” that bring a fresh enthusiasm to my spirit.

One of those is Tim Keller, who often shares life giving wisdom that I am both inspired and challenged by. The following quote particularly “resonated” with me.

@DailyKeller: “Religion says earn your life. Secular society says create your life. Jesus says, ‘My life for your life.’”

I’ve heard people derogatorily tell someone to “get a life.” That is precisely when Jesus steps in and offers us just that, ……….a life, His life, and what a life it is!!!

That is a trade I will make every time.

Living large,


John 1:4
In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.

2 Corinthians 5:21 NIV
God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.

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