HOW ARE YOU FEELING?
Mostly full of faith and hope, and then, out of the blue, hit with a little anxiety? ~ Don't be too disappointed with yourself if you wake up feeling flat or helpless. ~ It's just a reminder of the truth that we can't do this alone. ~ We are MEANT to remember our daily frailty, and dependence on God. ~ Like the Israelites, receiving fresh manna each morning, a real-time reminder of their need for God. ~ We could actually be grateful for the icky feeling: seeing it as a reminder that we are relying on our own strength... ...Then we can take the truth of our emptiness to Jesus and ask Him to fill us, each day. ~ Your faith-tank may last a while without a fill up, but when it runs dry: don't let the enemy tell you God is not enough or you can't do this, just go back to the source, collect your fresh manna and enjoy the sustenance. ~ My day now starts face down on my living room floor, telling God how helpless I am, how much I need him and depend upon him alone. ~ It has changed everything!
