This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Matthew 11:28 (ESV)
Today I am thinking about the need to recharge.
This week, we’ve been laying the groundwork to genuinely renew ourselves this Lent season. We’ve talked about the need to replug into our source who is Christ.
Another way to take action is to recharge. This is exactly how I believe David felt when he and his men returned home after being defeated by Saul.
After they experienced such a great loss with Saul, they came home to find their wives and children missing. Imagine taking a trip that does not go well at all, then returning to find that things are even worse at home.
I know personally that when I feel like I’m being hit from all angles, the first thing I need to do is have a good cry. This is exactly what David and his men did. The Scriptures say that David and his men wept until they couldn’t weep anymore.
Yet here’s the key: once David dried his tears and turned to God for strength and guidance, he felt recharged. Even David’s communication with God improved, and he was able to gain clarity and wisdom to recover everything that was taken from him.
So maybe a part of recharging yourself this Lent season requires you to let go of the past and have a good cry as you do so. While you do that, hold onto these words: “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28 (ESV)
Please share this reflection as others desire to be inspired.
So today, recharge and renew.
