“Whom have I in heaven by you?
I desire you more than anything on earth.
My health may fail, and my spirit may grow weak,
but God remains the strength of my heart; he is mine forever…
But as for me, how good it is to be near God!
I have made the Sovereign Lord my shelter,
and I will tell everyone about the wonderful things you do.”
Psalm 73 vs 25-26, 28 NLT
We should all aspire to love God this much and be refreshed in the Lord. It’s hard though at times, isn’t it? It’s hard to stay on top of everything we have to do and squeeze our faith in there. Truthfully though, much like exercise, faith and the practice of relational faith with God gets easier as you practice and grow into it. What at first takes thoughtful rearrangement of life so you can squeeze it in soon becomes a necessary part of your day as you grow and lean into your faith. If you’re already doing this I think that’s great but remember to keep things fresh. We want to be refreshed in God and engaged in our journey. Sometimes it’s good to mix things up a bit to keep things alive and interesting!
May God be the strength of your heart this day and always.
