Have you had your Joy Juice today? Focus on the sweet taste as you drink it this morning.
Do you ever find it difficult to focus? It’s especially hard when we’re tired or when our minds are cluttered with so many things. Many of us are caught up in such a busy lifestyle, that we try to pack 36 hours into 24 some days. And the result is…..exhaustion!
Sleep deprivation is common in our busy society. Most of us may admit to finding our keys in the refrigerator and misplacing our wallet…all because we were tired and not focusing well. Lack of sleep can lead to depression, weight gain and a number of chronic conditions. We must make a determined effort to rest. It’s very important physically…..AND spiritually.
Psalm 16: 9 sums it up beautifully:
"Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure."
When David penned these words, his heart was glad….he had found the secret to JOY…a relationship with God. When we have a daily walk with God, our heart will be filled with gladness and we will find ourselves rejoicing in His presence. When our hearts are joyful, our bodies and minds are much more “at rest” because we are focusing on what is TRULY IMPORTANT.
REST IN HIM and let Him fill your heart with unspeakable JOY!
