“How did we do it before?”
“I could never go back to the way things used to be.”
“Why did we think it was normal?”
It’s hard to remember those days before it all started, spending more time out of the house than in it. When Covid hit, it impacted everybody differently. Many of us were forced to stop. Many of us were pushed to work harder. Adult and child alike, we had to adapt to a shifting new pattern of days and locations.
And now, as doors are opening and our activity starts picking up pace again, a lot of people are feeling extremely tired.
“I don’t want to do it like we did before.”
“I need to recover.”
“I need to ease back in.”
“I need to recharge.”
Time to Recharge.
It brings this quote by Harry Emerson Fosdick to mind: "He who cannot rest, cannot work; he who cannot let go, cannot hold on; he who cannot find footing, cannot go forward."
At GLX, we sense this is a good moment for us to find our footing together. So we're inviting you to join us on a devotional series. We’ll be reflecting on Psalm 131 as we allow God to equip us with an attitude of rest in any situation so that we can move forward into this new world together in His strength.
This week, read Psalm 131 and reflect on this prayer:
Father, please teach me how to rest in your presence so that I may be recharged to thrive in your Kingdom.
Question for Reflection: What activity helps you to recharge?
