“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:
- Choose to love the Lord your God
- Listen to his voice
- Obey his commandments
- 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.
