We are called to love the Lord God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength--and others as ourselves. But we get busy. We grow tired and weary. Callous and complacent. Our once fiery hearts bursting with energy and enthusiasm for God's kingdom dulls and the bright light becomes a barely noticable flicker.
When we are running in this fast-paced modern world, it doesn't take long before we start running on empty. Our spiritual gas tank gets depleted. Just like a clunky car that won't move forward unless the tank is filled up, we to must find ways to fill up our tanks to keep moving forward in faith.
Whenever I have hit seasons of darkness, doubt, disappointment, discouragement, drought, disillusionment or despair, it has always been a fresh written word--either from Scripture, a Spirit-infused article, book or blog--that God uses to speak to and minister to my heart to strengthen, encourage and comfort me wherever I am at. He has used these kinds of fresh words to pick me up out of my pit and put me back on solid ground.
This blog is nothing fancy. It is simply my own scribblings and ramblings of whatever thoughts, reflections or lessons I am learning as I navigate my own journey of faith as as a wife of a pastor, mother of three, and prone to wonder sheep of God's great pasture.
"The Sovereign LORD has given me a well-instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary. He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being instructed." (Isaiah 50:4)
I cannot claim to have a well-instructed tongue, but I do love the idea of co-creating with the Holy Spirit words that sustain the weary. I pray that whatever you find here will sustain, stengthen, encourage and comfort you. And it will fill your tank to keep you moving forward on your journey with Him.
