Good morning and God bless you all. It's the middle of August and I'm wondering how your summer's coming along. The heat has been overwhelming and draining energy...even spiritual energy. I encourage you today that if you're feeling the least bit drained spiritually, you are not alone. We all have these moments. But, we can re-energize our spirit with a good does of prayer, praise, thanksgiving and fellowship.
And let's not forget a good dose of God's Word. Ephesians and Colossians are good new testament books to encourage you and keep you going.
Spend time each day for the next three days giving God thanks for any and everything you can think of. By day four, you'll feel the difference in your spirit. Let that be the start of your refreshment and personal revival over the next few weeks.
Also, remember to stay hydrated. Water is the best natural refresher there is. Now, for the spirit, take a drink of the living water - the Holy Spirit. Prayer will invite the Holy Spirit into your soul for spiritual refreshment. How wonderful you will feel when the Holy Spirit invigorates you. You'll feel like going on...like you can make it through another hot day. And I don't mean just the weather. But HOT days when things are absolutely crazy, frustrating, agrivating and intense. Breathe slowly and ask the Holy Spirit to refresh your thoughts, your mind and your feelings. I hear a testimony in the making!
Enjoy the rest of your summer and be refreshed with God's Word, prayer, praise and fellowship!
