Around this time of year, I start to receive renewal reminders in my email for my blog. Sometimes, I wonder if I should continue, however, those thoughts last for a short time.
We have such a wonderful community of people who not only discover and share God’s grace but who are gentle witnesses to those they meet. A hurting person, a person in need, a spiritually seeking person. All can be witnessed to in a kind and gentle way!
Our community is diverse and international! Thank you so much for being here and I hope we all learn and grow for another year together! My prayer is for you to share our community with family and friends so we can continue to have more people to learn from as everyone contributes.
What about our spiritual renewal? One way to phrase it, our spiritual re-charge? There have been times on my walk of faith when I have felt out of energy. Drained. Tired. Discouraged.
When that happens, there are many things we can do to change our perspective. I believe the most important is to pray! Talk with God about how we are feeling and how tired we might be. Listen for God’s whisper as He answers our prayers.
Another is to find a friend who you can talk with about this situation. Ask them for guidance and what they have done at similar times.
One beautiful way of finding renewal is to be out in God’s creation and enjoy nature. A sunrise. A sunset. A walk in the woods. There are so many amazing creations for us to see and consider.
I believe it is part of our human nature to sometimes run low on spiritual energy. Let us remember there are ways to regain and restore our perspective!
“Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me.”
– Psalm 51: 10
