What do you do when your emotional tank is empty? Where do you find emotional energy to recharge and restore your soul? God wired us with emotions. Feelings are a huge part of how we relate to the world around us. But feelings fluctuate.
When you tap into your spiritual energy through constant connection with God, you can expand your physical energy. How? Physical energy is gained by cultivating a healthy concept of our bodies. God is the source of all energy.
The KonMari Method is sweeping our culture today! Have you heard of it? If not it, you must be on a social media fast. Japanese organizing consultant, author and television celebrity who wrote the best-seller, The Life-changing Magic of Tidying Up, teaches us to embrace “decluttering” and remove anything that doesn’t “spark joy” in our lives.
To simplify my life, I need clarity. I need to be able to see the path that God has for me so I don’t get off track. It’s so easy to get distracted. Saul of Tarsus thought he was on the right road, but God had to strike him with blindness before he could see.
Ananias would be a microcosm of the skepticism felt at large by the early church toward a newly converted Saul of Tarsus. Was his conversion genuine? Could he be trusted?
One of the four distinctives that defined the priorities of the early church was fellowship. Luke writes that all the believers devoted themselves to fellowship. They understood they desperately needed one another.
There’s a principle in spiritual guidance that is so liberating: Follow Jesus, and the right path will find you! How often have you wondered if you were on the right path in life?
Have you ever considered that doing things right could possibly be wrong? The truth is that doing things right may, in fact, be keeping you from doing the right things! That sounds so weird to me because, all my life, I’ve been told to do things right!
Spiritual guidance is often a divine mystery! Paul described it like trying to see through a fog or a cloud in 1 Corinthians 13:12. Despite how much we would like for God’s guidance to be as easy to follow as a GPS, He often takes us down hidden paths.
Have you noticed that whatever you hold onto in life begins to hold onto you? That’s great if you’re holding onto Jesus and He’s holding onto you. But, too often, we get attached to things we need to let go of.
