Practice makes perfect, right?
We practice giving. We practice sports. We practice crafting. We practice school. We practice deals and speeches and how to sell our trade. We practice hospitality. We practice faith.
What if we have nothing left in our season to give and we fall out of practice?
A soccer ball won’t loose momentum when we take a season to rest our bodies. Piano keys still work when we walk away for a moment or three. Our tables may stand empty of extra bodies, but we won’t go hungry. But our Bibles, our prayer lives, and our souls, these things should never go stale and unused for any amount of seasons.
There should be times of rest, seasons of sabbath, and times of reflection and planning. However, there is never an off-season when it comes to faith. Faith is what gives the ability to step out of our sports, deal making and crafty days in order to look back and reassess when we are overwhelmed. When we feel that there’s nothing left to give, faith keeps stability despite how tired we are.
Philippians 4:11 ESV
Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content.
Resting from all things while replenishing our beings with God’s faithfulness through Scripture reading and communion in prayer will give us the ability to keep moving. Our tendencies to feel depleted by life can be revived in the Lord. He sees us through no matter what our human mindsets tell us.
“Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”
As we quiet ourselves, we can reflect on His goodness. He is God of all, upholding His loved ones and giving rest to those in need. He sees us, He know us, and He will never let us go no matter what season we are in. Draw near to Him in all things and He will draw near to you. Never doubt His faithfulness.Our tendencies to feel depleted by life can be revived in the Lord. He sees us through no matter what our human mindsets tell us. Click To Tweet
