Refresh. To renew, to liven, to restore, to recharge, to stimulate. To make fresh again.
How long has it been since the fragrance of God was fresh in my life?
New years have served as a impetus to change, but this year, my impetus is not for change but for reformation, restructuring refreshing.
As I spent time praying, the Lord filled my mind with images of the past, where I knew I was living in his will. Where I felt the pulse of his heart and the breath in his lungs. He made it clear to me that he was calling me back to the burdens, the cares, the struggles that have slowly taken the back seat. That have become old, diminished, tired, and stale.
He was urging me to make fresh again my desire to be his, to be like Christ.
My heart is being enlarged. I am transformed daily by the renewal of my mind into the likeness of Christ.
I don’t know what 2013 has in store but I want to burn like a bright light for my Creator and my Lover. I want to run with endurance the race set before me. I don’t want to leave behind any opportunity to do His will.
Join me as I imitate Christ. Refresh your hope. Refresh the joy of your salvation. Refresh.
