CHARGE!

Well, I don’t know about you, but yesterday, I was dragging.  Who knew one little hour could make such a big difference?  I realize that Day Lights Savings is a means to an end that brings us longer, brighter days, but for me, it was tough adjustment.

All day long, I trudged along, mistyping words, forgetting what I was working on,  and basically, completely out of it. 

This morning, after snoozing for a full hour, I dragged myself out of bed only to find both my computer and phone were out of batteries.  Like me, they were in the red, in need of a jolt.  So, I did the natural thing when your electronic devices are dying, I plugged them into their power sources for the required energy boost.  Within no time, both devices were working at full capacity.

Maybe it’s just me, but like my friends the Droid and the Mac, I’m in need of a boost.  When our batteries are fading into the red, we need to get plugged into the Source and say, “God, I’m fading, I can’t do this without you.  I need Your help and I need Your strength.”

Fortunately for us, there are lots of verses in the Bible that promise us that when we’re in the red, our God is more than capable to give us His strength and energy to keep on keeping on.

Do you not know?
   Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
   the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
   and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary
   and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
   and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
   will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
   they will run and not grow weary,
   they will walk and not be faint.” 
Isaiah 40:28-31 

Another little boost for me can come from worship songs that exude the power and promise of our God, like Laura Hackett’s version of Joyful, Joyful:
