fall sunsetLately, I think my energy level is Janus-faced. I’m beaming with liveliness one minute, then exhausted and needing a power-nap the next.

I believe I resolved today’s levels of bi-polar energy: When I read scripture, my heart was giddy and the feeling of conquering the world (or maybe just the day) washed over me. “Bring on the day!” Then, an hour later, my body became sluggish. Hmmmm, could it have been the excessively large chocolate chip cookie that my husband brought home the night before? Hmmmm.

Bible vs. Cookie…bible was energizing…colossal cookie, night-night.

I feel like we just had a “squirrel moment”…Random thoughts with Stephanie. LOL!

Well, can I just share with you the scripture that made me giddy today? Great! Thanks. It is one of my favorite verses, “Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” Psalm 37:4 (Click here).

What is your heart’s desire?

Praying that my children’s desire will be to put first God in all they do and to please Him is part of my daily prayer life. Yea, yea, yea, we all have passions or dreams we pursue to find happiness and fulfillment in life, BUT…when you seek God’s will for your life and really want to put a smile on God’s face, you discover that HE IS what you desire, and you’ll discover that He can and will fill you with an abundance of joy. Delight in Him.

Here, take a look at the verse that follows verse 4 (it’s a great one too): “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you.” Psalm 37:5. It doesn’t state to commit part-of-what-you-do to the Lord. Give Him your ALL. He is available 24/7, and desires to guide you through life. Trust Him. He’s got your back.

Don’t let these verses leave you feeling depleted. Allow them to give you energy, joy, and hope for a new day!

Tackle your day with God.

Blessings to you and yours,

Stephanie

    For years these two verses have been my lean to. Troubles surrounded me and I would go to these verses for comfort.
    I have recommended to several of my friends also. Thanks for reminding me.
