After ten days of being snowed in with three sick people I was ready for a break. I needed refreshing.
I told my husband “I need to get out. I just need to go do something.”
He, of course, was very supportive.
So I headed to town. And my much desired trip went down the drain. Lines were long, stores were closed and to beat all my sandwich fell apart! I was even more frustrated than I was when I had left.
On the ride home I focused myself completely on the Word. It was just me and Jesus.
Immediately the day turned around. The refreshing I needed washed over me. God had provided.
Not in the way I had anticipated…but so much better.
Amidst the chaotic or routine we can always find refreshing when we purposefully put ourselves in the presence of God. We need only to do it.
