Refresh1     I confess, I don’t know what it’s like in other parts of the world but in America – for those who have a relationship with Jesus – Sunday, today, is the day we seek to walk a bit slower, to think a bit deeper, to sing a bit louder, to live a bit more the way we are called… It is not the only day we are to put Him first but if we will rest we will re-fresh…

Re-Fresh – The very word indicates that we are no longer fresh, we were, and now we need to be again. Refresh in a way that doesn’t let troubles wrinkle us, refresh in a way that doesn’t let anger ruffle us, refresh in a way that doesn’t let fear leave us limp and lifeless…

Refresh in a way that does show up in our faces, in our voices, in our relationships. How, how do we refresh even one day a week? Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28 NIV)

It is more in our souls we are weary than in our bodies. It is more in our relationships we are weary than in our work. It is more in our thoughts we are weary than in our needs. Fear, anxiety, dread, doubt, worry drain us and we need to drink from the well that never runs dry, to refresh our parched and longing hearts with the Refresher – …Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink. Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him.” (John 7:37-38 NIV)

Today… RE-FRESH!
