How often do I feel like I am wilting from the daily tasks and challenges of life? I really do feel like I am wilting in the heat - but more than just physically - life can cause me to wilt in other ways.
But, guess what? I have hope that I, too, can be refreshed like the flowers. I can trust that God will rejuvenate me when I go to His Word, enter His presence in prayer and just stay plugged in to the vine where I receive my nourishment.
"He makes me lie down in green pastures, He leads me beside quiet waters, He restores my soul." ~ Psalm 23:2-3Lord, please give me a heart that remains in You ~ so I can draw from Your strength and nourishment. And, when I feel like I am wilting ~ to be refreshed by Your perfect care.
"Come to Me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest." ~ Matthew 11:28
"I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing." ~ John 15:5
