Be refreshed!

June 2, 2009
“The generous will prosper;

those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed”

Prov 11:25

This verse from Proverbs really spoke to me today; after a couple of days of feeling overwhelmed by lists of work to be done in the home, school planning and general life responsibilities, I drew breath and got my head into the Word!

When we feel overwhelmed it’s usually because we’re looking too much at our own situation and not at Jesus or others around us; to have a giving, serving, worshiping heart is to be refreshed.

It’s important to be DOERS of the Word; so I put my revelation into action; wrote some cards, called a friend, bought a gift for someone and prayed for other precious Mothers in my life. God is faithful, He has refreshed my soul and lifted my head.

We all have days when nothing seems to get done, the children are loud, the baby won’t sit still and your ‘to do’ list is getting longer and longer BUT instead of navel gazing and hiding our head in the sand look to HIM; the author and perfecter of our faith – look to refresh others and YOU yourself will be refreshed.
