Plugging In

So much to do. Every minute of every day accounted for. My life is full and I am truly thankful, but this day I need an energizing word from you, Lord. I'm losing steam. I need your touch.

God, can you pump me up?

The Lord God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17

Your words are a lullaby, soothing my spirit, quieting my soul. When I expect a "Here we go, Tami, here we go" shot in the arm, something about perseverance and pushing ahead and running the race, you simply say, "Come here. Be still." You don't put a hand to my back, propelling me forward. You make me take a deep breath. You slow me down. You put wind in my sails as I sit in your presence. You are my source of energy.

Turn your eyes upon Jesus
Look full in his wonderful face
And the things of earth will grow strangely dim
In the light of his glory and grace.

LOVE that verse! He knows just what we need, right when we need it. And it isn't always what we expect, is it? He is so tender with us.

Tami,
How I am feeling your words! It's so funny~ I know this truth and have been taught it so often, so why do I continue to "backslide" in this area? I know when I rest in His arms, I find the peace and strength I need. The Zeph. verse is one of my favorites. Thanks so much for the reminder to keep my eyes on Jesus!

Blessings!
