Live and love Abundantly

I have had this feeling for the last couple days. This message that I think God wants me to get.
I am going to be reading the bible this year, the whole thing. I pray that God speaks to me so loudly and quietly at the same time!
God has this grand abdundance for us. Not so much in riches but in peace, love, and joy. He tells us not to worry, He even gives us specific instructions on what to do, and what not to do. Not because He wants to be bossy (but He could He's God afterall) but because He has this life for us of abdundance.
Live and love abundantly. That's what I have for you, my child. I was in church yesterday and was just reminded of it. The pastor was talking about this beautiful young woman who is on the streets, and how he didn't want her to die. Really, if she's saved, it's not about dying, it's about really living. It's about having that feeling of love, and carrying it everywhere you go. About being used for the glory (GLORY!!) of God. It's about the riches that you can't get from loving money, it's about knowing that you don't have anything to give except love.
God wants us to live and love abundantly.
1 Tim 1:14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus
Here is the plan I am going to be doing

I'm doing the Bible in a year pastor said yesterday that it takes an average of eight days to break a resolution. I'm thinking for every day we make it past the eighth, we're doing well!
