Ever felt like this?

We’ve probably all had days like this. I guess this usually happens when  there’s something or someone on our mind which causes our mind to focus on that/them rather than on where and what we’re meant to be doing.

Have you ever been caught out during one of these times? Maybe someone asked you a question which you didn’t really hear because your mind was elsewhere, but you were aware you’ve been asked something!

Sometimes we probably should not be where we physically are, as we should be with the person or situation our thought are focused on, as they are obviously in need of us. Make sure you make the right decisions to be where and with who you need to be, forget where or what other expect you to do, do what you need to do.

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!

For this reason, I bow my knees and pray to the Father. It is from Him that every family in heaven and on earth has its name. I pray that because of the riches of His shining-greatness, He will make you strong with power in your hearts through the Holy Spirit. I pray that Christ may live in your hearts by faith. I pray that you will be filled with love. I pray that you will be able to understand how wide and how long and how high and how deep His love is. I pray that you will know the love of Christ. His love goes beyond anything we can understand. I pray that you will be filled with God Himself.

~ Ephesians 3:14-19 (NLV)

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

You can do this by looking after yourself physically – by making sure we exercise and sleep well and eat a balanced diet. In other words, look after your spiritual, physical and emotional wellbeing.

I guess I’m not alone in feeling physically and/or emotionally drained sometimes. When you feel like that, what do you do? Do you, try and get some time to relax and recharge your batteries? Or do you have another way to get your strength back?

What about the times when you’re feeling spiritually drained or tired? How do you recharge your spiritual batteries?

For me, I know what I need to do when I’m in need of recharging my spiritual life, I know God can provide the power to recharge my spiritual life, so I simply rest in the presence of the one who prompts, equips, and strengthens. Why not try this solution for yourself today.

We hear a lot these days about “assets“…company assets, the assets of football clubs, personal assets. So today I want to focus on personal assets…not physical ones, but personal characteristics.

So have a think about what you consider to be your own personal assets or characteristics for a few moments.

I recently read that:

The most useful asset of a person is not a head full of knowledge, but a heart full of love, with ears open to listen, and hands willing to help.

Do your assets match up to that? Are you full of love, willing to listen to others, and happy to offer a hand to help others?

I pray that even if we don’t match-up to those characteristics today, we may, through God’s help, attain them and use them to honour God.

When we take about wounds, I personally tend to think of soldiers and their battle scars. However soldiers are far from being the only people who have “battle-scars” – Yes, it’s true the majority of us have never fought in a war or conflict, however I’m sure we’ve all had our fair share of battle-scars, maybe just a few of us with physical scars, but I’m sure we’ve all got loads of emotional scars.

Think about some of your own scars, I’m sure regardless of whether you are thinking about a physical or an emotional scar, they were very painful at the time you received them…and I’m sure some of them are still very raw and painful even now.

Imagine you had never received any of those scars, would your life still be the same today?

I’m sure that if I hadn’t experienced the physical and emotional scars I carry today, my life would be very different – I think if your honest, you’d agree with me on this one.

Every experience we go through, physical and emotional, makes us the person we are today. Every experience we go through builds or breaks our faith in God. I pray that your life experiences have brought you closer to God. If they haven’t, give God another chance, as He can make your every experience a God-filled one.
