Have you had your JOY JUICE today? It may be just the thing to boost your energy level!
Most of us try to pack so many things into our day that by nightfall, we are physically exhausted! Some of us may even admit that we wake up in the mornings already tired! Health issues can certainly effect our energy and make us weak, but many of us simply don’t make wise choices. We overbook and overextend ourselves---misjudging what we can realistically get done in one day’s time. It’s as if we expect ourselves to be superhuman.
Have you noticed that when we’re weary and tired, every area of our life is affected? Our patience runs thin with our family and we find ourselves snapping instead of responding to them in love. Our thought process is foggy and we can’t seem to make good decisions. Sometimes physical exhaustion leads to a breakdown in our immune system and we catch illnesses.
May I suggest that we all should have a large daily serving of that “booster” I like to call JOY JUICE? 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 in our spiritual lives, provides rest and renewal and strength to our hearts and minds.
So as we look at our schedule of things to do today, let’s make sure that Bible study and prayer are on the top of our list. That’s the way to assure that we will be sipping the JOY JUICE of Jesus throughout our busy day.
Slow down long enough to experience God’s JOY and the strength that He gives us when we depend on Him.
