Are you thriving?

The link-up I planned to join today asked posters to blog about an area in their life where they are thriving...I don't have one-stagnating, maybe?!  It's not in the kitchen, in frugality, family,, kinda smacks ya right in the face!
Surely there is an area of my life I can say is thriving, surely!  In order to discover said area, I looked up the definition of the word thrive:
1. To make steady progress; prosper.
2. To grow vigorously; flourish
After looking at the definiton, the area of my life where I am thriving is in my relationship with Christ.  I am studying the Word and praying more than ever.  I am making steady progress in my relationship with Him.  The outflow of this relationship with Him will make other aspects of my life flourish as well.  There comes a point when you get so full of Him it can't help but overflow into everyday life.
I'm not there yet, but I am taking steps daily to grow in Him.  I pray every area of my life will begin to thrive as I seek a deeper, more meaningful relationship with my Savior.

I'm honored that you shared with us at Thriving Thursday! Thanks so much for sharing that definition--it really puts things it in perspective. So happy to hear that your relationship with Christ is thriving...I fully believe that if your Christian walk is thriving, then everything else will follow...the key to thriving in life is thriving in CHRIST :) Blessings to you and thanks again for sharing.

Thank you Allison for sharing. Nothing I want more than growing my relationship with Jesus, which it is.
