For the past 9 days, we have gone through areas in our lives that need an intentional touch as the checklist shows in the picture above. Going through with this series was my way of practising intentionality, and I must say, it is quite a fulfilling way to live.
This morning, I studied a portion of the Bible that gave an account of a woman who had suffered from an ailment for many years. After she had tried all she could, spending all her resources to find a cure but got none, she made a decision to trust her situation into the hands of someone she believed would have a solution. Focusing on her mission, she executed her plan intentionally and got the result she was seeking. Now how do I know that she was intentional? Consider Jesus’s response:
But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.” Luke 8:46 (NLT)
Yes! She deliberately (consciously and intentionally; on purpose) touched Jesus.
What will you achieve if you decided to live intentionally?
As my dear friend, John from The Eclectic Contrarian commented on The Intentional Series #5: “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” (Matthew 7:7-8 KJV), I realise how each of these instructions requires much intentionality. Only those who need something intentionally ask for it or seek after it, and it is wisdom that tells you to intentionally knock if you want to be granted access.
Your life can be so much better than what it is today if you choose to live a life of intentionality.
Like Jesus, be intentional.

Yes, there is. Now don’t go looking around at other mountains wondering why yours isn’t as high as Kilimanjaro’s or Everest’s. Own your mountain, and get to the top. Make your Creator proud, intentionally!
