1. to exert oneself vigorously; try hard: He strove to make himself understood.
2. to make strenuous efforts toward any goal: to strive for success.
3. to contend in opposition, battle, or any conflict; compete.
So lately I find myself exerting myself vigorously and trying hard to accomplish several things. I am striving for more of God, striving to be more like Jesus, striving to more of a husband to my wife and a father to my children, striving for more in business, and just striving for more in general.
Some might say that some of these things cannot be achieved through striving at all, but I would differ in opinion. I feel that any goal that is worth attaining deserves vigorous exertion and hard trying. I know that all God requires for salvation is believe and confess (Rom 10:9-10), but he still told us to, press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus, Philippians 3:14.
So here I am pressing and striving for more of the things that I believe will please God. If you are striving for more like me then I hope you will follow this blog. I'll try not to bore or preach you to death or to life, but instead to let you in so we can grow and achieve that much sought after "MORE" together.
God Bless and Much Love
