We have so many chargers in this house it is not even funny. And not nearly enough plug-ins in this old house. A kid is always complaining–“I have no battery!” “Who used my device and didn’t plug it in?!” “Who unplugged my device?!”
It’s enough to drain me.
Life is a constant go, draining our energy, battery, juice–whatever you want to call it. There are a lot of ways to relax. TV, zone out to the internet, listen to music–all with technology–and half the time they just drain us even more, leave us feeling more empty. We can read a book, do a hobby, cook/bake–those are a little more fulfilling–but they all require money. We can enjoy the outdoors–which is good for our bodies and souls, mostly free–but involves bug bites and being tired and sunburned. Just saying.
The only true way to recharge with no ill after effects is to turn to the greatest power source ever. For me, there is nothing like praying to recharge my soul. Turning to God, knowing that I am loved, secure, and that He will fill me up unconditionally–that charges me. That gets me excited, yet relaxes me like nothing else.
And I don’t mean doing a bunch of service projects, or being overinvolved at church–I mean PLUGGING INTO GOD.
How about you? Do you need a recharge? Have you plugged into God lately?
