My marching orders

“Love the Lord your God, listen to his voice, and hold fast to him. For the Lord is your life …” (Deuteronomy 30:20).

I’ve had a busy, busy week entertaining family and long distance friends. A good week in most respects, but exhausting. Stress is stress. There’s good stress and bad stress. Either brings with it a need for renewal of body and mind. What to do first in order to recover? Where do I begin? So much to do — so little energy and motivation.

As I pull apart the verses above and search for answers, I see a few secrets for life renewal:

  1. Choose to love the Lord your God
  2. Listen to his voice
  3. Obey his commandments
  4. Commit self firmly and hold fast to God

Live life exuberantly. The Lord your God is your life (Deuteronomy 30:20).

Dear God, help me quiet the racing of my mind and heart. I need to filter out all else so I can listen to your voice alone.
