DAY THIRTY-ONE

Isaiah 40:30 says “Even the youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall…” It’s not a physical tiredness, but a tiredness deep in us that only He can restore to what He intended- a well for His presence. “…but those that hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

DAY THIRTY

Have you ever noticed that whenever the disciples were telling Jesus to keep the momentum going his ministry, he instead withdrew and spent time with his Father to remind himself of who he was. We need to do the same. If we’re going to follow in the steps of Jesus … we have to follow in the stops of Jesus too.

Once I feel detoxed and healthy, I could go back to my old ways. However I end up finding myself in a situation where next year or even next month I would have to detox again.

DAY TWENTY-EIGHT

Is it something you have? Is it to be provided? Is it the right to define self? Is it something you can gain or lose? Is it in speech? Is it in peace?

DAY TWENTY-SIX

Common sense tells us that the work needs to be done and responsibilities shouldn’t be neglected, but like Martha, we need to discern what’s important and prioritise.

DAY TWENTY-FOUR

"When we are left to our natural inclination, we make every decision around how it will benefit ourselves. We seem hard wired toward focusing on ourselves.  But Jesus introduced a crazy notion that fulfilment can only be found when we are willing to give our lives away for the things that Christ values... others."

Sometimes we may wonder about our thoughts and behaviours.   How well do we really understand ourselves? Of course, there is a fine balance between being self  aware and being self absorbed.

DAY TWENTY

We all hate when our life is hard and dry like a desert … but it’s in those times that we truly learn to rely on God. Instead of simply trying to get out of the desert, we need to get us much out of the desert as possible by learning to depend on God.

DAY NINETEEN

How do we find rest in the midst of the demands of work, parenting, being a spouse, cooking, cleaning, endless places to be and social media platforms to check, just to name a few.

DAY SEVENTEEN

We often look at others and compare and wonder why it is that they seem to have it all together, why luck and good fortune seem to fall their way.   In an interview Golf player Gary Player responded to a critic who said he was lucky, “Yes he said – and I’ve noticed that the harder I practice, the more luck I have.”

DAY FIFTEEN

God is the ultimate sustenance for our souls. He does not scream at us or whine that we aren’t ‘spending enough time together’. In my life, at least, every other thing can appear louder and more demanding than Him. And in my life, restful time gleaning from God and His word has often suffered for it.

DAY FOURTEEN

We live in a world were the idea of “hustle” is praise and rewarded. When we hustle we get opportunities. When we hustle, we get paid. In many ways, hustle is holy. And even people who follow Jesus live according to this idea—so we’re constantly running around, chasing our goals and pursuing our dreams.
