Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before they run our completely!

You can do this by making reassuring yourself that God is always with you:

Don’t be afraid! Speak out! Don’t be silent! For I am with you, and no one will attack and harm you (Acts 18:9-10 NIV)

I am with you always, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:20 NLT)

Do you ever feel spiritually drained?

Have you ever feel that the “spirit” has just been exhausted in your life?

We all feel this way from time to time; but an energetic Christian knows the cure!

It’s time to recharge your spiritual batteries today, before they run our completely!

You can do this by making sure your heart is in the right place.

Proverbs 4:23

Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. (NIV)

Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts. (The Message)

Look after your heart, because through that God is with you.

When you find you face problems in life, do you wonder, “Why me?”. But have you ever stopped and wondered, “Am I actually the root of my problems?”.

I’m sure even if you have thought that, you will have realised not everything can be your fault! Sometimes our problems can start when our heart is not right. i.e. If we say we’ve given our heart to God, but in reality we’ve just given him a part of ourselves.

The heart of the problem is a problem with the heart. ~ Dr Henry Brandt

When we give our heart, our all, to God, God will strengthen and support us always. So don’t let your heart be the problem, give it to God today.

Is there such a thing as a perfect prayer?

Perfect prayer does not consist in many words, silent remembering and pure intention raises the heart to that supreme Power. ~ Amit Ray

I’m not sure I’d call any prayer a ‘perfect prayer’, however I would say that any prayer that is uttered from the heart, is worthy of being called perfect. God wants us to give our hearts to Him, so if our prayers come from the depth of our heart, they are perfect to Him.

When we’re asked a question, we can often give elaborate answers which really tell the questioner nothing. So for the following questions I’m looking for single word answers only :

  1. What is your favourite book of the bible?
  2. Do you put your heart and soul into everything you do?
  3. Are you passionate about anything?
  4. What are you passionate about?
  5. When was the last time you cried uncontrollably?

Whatever your answers, did you answer honestly or did you give the answers you think you should be giving?

If you didn’t answer honestly, can I suggest you try again, but this time be honest with yourself, because if you are, you might get an insight into the ares of your life you need to change.

When we’re asked a question, we can often give elaborate answers which really tell the questioner nothing. So for the following questions I’m looking for single word answers only :

  1. Who do you wish you were with, right now?
  2. If you could meet anyone living or dead, who would you want to meet?
  3. Has your heart ever been broken?
  4. Have you ever felt you couldn’t go on?
  5. Have you read the bible today?

Whatever your answers, did you answer honestly or did you give the answers you think you should be giving?

A strange phrase isn’t it, so what does it mean?

It means you are very open about your emotions. Imagine in your mind’s eye the heart, the source of all your feelings and emotions, being worn on the sleeve, your deepest inner feelings displayed outside you for all to see.

Does that description send a shiver down your spine, or just make you think, “yeah ok”?

For me it’s definitely the former, as I am not someone who ever likes to let people see my deepest emotions, it makes me feel very vulnerable, and that’s not something I’m comfortable with.

Are you happy wearing your heart on your sleeve?

There are people who are confident speakers; There are people who are great at giving advice; There are people who are great at just listening when others need to talk.

There is one person who is better at listening than anyone else, because He is always ready and available to listen…

Have you noticed that a when some people speak, your more inclined to listen than you are when others speak?

What some people tell us can be more meaningful and helpful to us than what others say. If we listen to everyone how do know/identify who is giving us the information we need?

When our heart gets involved we know we’re hearing someone worth listening to, so make sure your ears, and your heart and open and ready to listen when God speaks to you.

Music is art

What does music mean to you?

It can change our mood, raise our spirits, remind you of special people or places, but what is it?

I believe music is art, and those who compose the music and lyrics are not only composers but artists, painting a picture through their music and lyrics.

Music speaks to my heart regularly, I hope you let it speak to yours too.
