Recharging

Even to your old age and gray hairs
I am he, I am he who will sustain you.
I have made you and I will carry you;
I will sustain you and I will rescue you. – Isaiah 46:4

A friend once told me that I had a triple-charged battery that kept going … kind of like the Eveready bunny. However, this was 20 years ago when they said that. Today, the battery feels like it needs a jumpstart. So where do I go for the recharge? My list looks like it will need more energy than the sparks spitting out just to keep the eyes open.

Perhaps you have felt this way before. You’re tired yet you have a lot to do. Even the espresso isn’t kicking in. How would it feel to be carried? God promises that in Isaiah. For our whole life, he is caring for us even as we get older, slower, and grayer, his living water is splashing around in us to keep us refreshed. Think of it as floating on a inner tube down a lazy river … we are being carried and brought to new areas.

If God calls us to do something, he will give us what we need to accomplish it. The energy and resources will be there to complete it. But sometimes, God just calls us to rest in him. Ahhhh!

Prayer: Lord, thank you for the promise of sustaining me. I pray I draw from you well of refreshment when needed. Amen

Faith Tip: Have a lot to do today? Thank God for the busyness laid out before you and pray for direction as you maneuver through it.

  1. Thanks, Kathy, for another great post. I like your idea of being carried and brought to new areas. God just calls us to rest in him. Ahhhh! I needed to hear that today.
