31 Days: Refresh

refresh my heart in Christ.

31 Days: One Word - Refresh

I have been going through a period of exhaustion. Do you ever feel that way? Maybe you aren’t sleeping well (insomnia rears its ugly head at various times in our lives) or you have been on the go more than is a good healthy margin for you? Maybe you are giving and serving a great deal? Maybe your eating hasn’t been as careful and wise or your exercising has gone the way of the dinosaur? You end up in a period of exhaustion and emptiness or mental and emotional (even spiritual) dryness. You feel BLANK.

I’m hovering in this place of limbo. I need to be refreshed in the Lord!

This word refresh means to cease from movement or labor to recover one’s strength, to give one’s self rest or to be in quiet, calm or restful anticipation.

Ahh! Are you like me? Are you needing to cease from your labor and just sit in that place of quiet and calm anticipation while the Lord causes us to recover your strength? Are you needing the Spirit of Life to rain down over you and let His living waters rejuvenate every cell of your body and every thought of your soul? Are you wanting to just sit still and, in that stillness, let His gentle whisper speak words of solace and refreshment to your spirit?

I’m just going to share some scriptures that filled me tonight in the hopes that He’ll refresh you as He did me.

Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Matt 8:28


And He *said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a secluded place and rest a while.” Mark 6:31a


Yes, brother, let me benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ. Philemon 1:20

31 Days: One Word - Overflow

For the mouth speaks from the overflow of the heart. Today’s mediation is a bit different as I’m not focusing on a character quality of God but on how our character is revealed in our speech.

31 Days: Re-creator

31 Days: Re-creator

But God…even when we were dead… made us alive together with Christ… We’ve already looked at God as our Creator, but I’ve been reading in Ephesians how, in Christ, He is our RE-creator. We were dead in our sins. We were spiritually lifeless, far from God, destined for destruction. Oh, but I was in tears . . . →Read More:

…for all His ways are just… In our world of wanting everything to be fair (and, by that we mean equal) we have often lost sight of justice. Webster’s defines it as: 1) : acting or being in conformity with what is morally upright or good : righteous <a just war> 2) : . . . →Read More:
