Have you had your JOY JUICE today? It may be just the thing to boost your energy level!
How many of us will admit to packing our day so full of activity that by nightfall, we are literally exhausted! There are those who truly do have health issues that sap their energy level and make them weak, but many of us simply do not make wise choices. We overbook and over-extend ourselves---misjudging what we can realistically get done in one day’s time. It’s as if we think we have super-powers!
When we are weary and tired, every area of our life is affected! Our patience runs thin with our family and we often find ourselves snapping instead of responding to them in love. Our thought process slows down and we can’t make clear decisions. Sometimes physical exhaustion leads to a breakdown in our health, and we are susceptible to illnesses because of a weakened immune system.
May I suggest that we have a large serving of that “booster” I like to call JOY JUICE…especially when we are feeling spiritually weak! Nehemiah 8:10 tells us that “The joy of the Lord is our strength.” We all experience times of weariness. But God has given us His Word which, when applied consistently in our lives, provides spiritual rest, renewal and strength to our hearts and minds.
As you look at your schedule of things to do today, make sure that Bible study and prayer are a priority. Sip the JOY JUICE of Jesus throughout your busy day.
Let’s be reminded to slow down long enough to experience God’s joy and the strength that He gives us when we depend on Him.
