God’s Love… His Holy Word… Refreshing Fuel for my Weary Soul

Image

As my mood dipped this afternoon, I allowed negative emotions to possess me no more.

I took my mood to my quiet place.

There I opened my Bible.

The very word of God.

As I read the life giving and mood uplifting words.

My fowl mood dissipated!  

Your faithful servant and prophet Paul speaks of how quickly we flee from your presence.

He states, “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting the one who called you to live in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel- which is really no gospel at all.”

I am learning and relearning this lesson…

Realizing how time spent away from Your presence and from your word…

Creates emptiness, loneliness, bitterness, hate, fear, and “overall” deep rooted discord within my spirit.

Today…  I woke up…  

Drank my two cups of coffee…

Dressed…

And… 

Ran… Ran… Ran…

Upon my afternoon arrival home.

Upon stopping for the 1st time throughout my day.

I looked deep inside my tired… weary spirit…

What I saw…  

What I felt?

A tired, wore out, and empty gas gauage.

Once again my “spiritual” fuel tank running low.

Recalling the times in the past…

I painfully ran out of “spiritual” gasoline…

I sat down in my quiet place and opened the “Good Book”.

His words immediately began to fuel my spirit…

Again Paul speaks God-Breathed words of peace into my spirit.

“It is for freedom that Christ has set us free, Stand Firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery…  But the fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.  You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free…”

Freedom in Christ…

Feels so refreshing…  

So comforting…  

So peaceful.

Inhaling God’s love…

Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control!

Exhaling God’s love…

Love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control!

Blessings, 

Crystal
