The Power of Intentional Living
Ps. André Olivier
Too many people are living life by accident, instead of by design. They allow life, circumstances, feelings, friends and even family to determine their course in life. We are not meant to be those who go with the tide and float downstream with the currents, but who navigate the turbulent waters of life’s currents and make our way to the place we know God wants us to go. Salmon do this each year as they return to the place where they were spawned and lay their egg, securing the next generation. They swim against strong tides and swift currents risking being eaten by bears, to give birth to something greater. God has put something within them that drives them by instinct, but he has given human beings the freedom of choice to decide whether this is the direction we want to take or do we want a life of ease.
