Do you ever feel like you need a God-energy recharge in the middle of the week?
When I started getting serious about the new life God had given me through Jesus, I worked pretty hard at it. I was trying to live better, do the right things, break bad habits, be a good example for everyone around me, and share the good news I had found with others.
It was exhausting.
Every Monday was a fresh start. Recharged after Sunday services and time in worship, I tackled the world. But by Wednesday I was lagging, by Friday I was dragging, and by Saturday night I wondered if I’d even have energy enough to go to church the next morning.
Finally I went to God, and since He’s okay with us being up front with Him, I just put it out there: “Hey, what’s up with this? Why can’t I seem to sustain this effort all week? How am I supposed to get from one Sunday to another? This isn’t working for me!”
What He showed me was so simple, but I’m still digging deeper into it, even decades later. I saw an image of a battery, and charging up the battery every time it ran out of energy. Then the image of a wall outlet and a cord plugged in, receiving continual power.
