Summer Devotional August 11th, 2017

Jeremiah 31:25:  “I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”

I’m tired.

Physically mainly.  But taxed in other ways as well.

So Wednesday I said to take care of animals.  Today I’m telling you to take care of yourself.  God will refresh you and give you renewed energy.  Pray.  Ask.  For Him to come.  Fill you.  Renew you.  Give you strength for the next step in life.  Literally and figuratively.

Then do something for yourself:  Buy a latte at Starbucks.  Get a massage.  Take a nap.  Read a good book.  Work up a sweat.  Splurge on a hair cut. Or a new coat.  Little things add up to brighten your day.  Refill your emptiness with what works for you.

    WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN

    Early do I seek Him
    With a cry deep from within
    My prayer was just to know Him
    Why do I search again?

    My bibles books and tapes
    I frantically search through
    One glimpse, one sign this day O Lord
    That’s all I ask of you

    You said I’d never thirst again
    Why then my panting heart
    One look was all you gave me then
    Now how to live apart

    With tears of desperation
    I dropped down to my knees
    My God have You forgotten
    Your promises to me?

    And then ever so gently
    I heard deep from within
    Your prayer was just to know me
    Why do you search again?

    The day you opened up the door
    And asked me to come in
    I have been waiting here for you
    My child “Where have you been”?
