About a week ago I woke up with a wonderful thought in my head. I was a tree planted by a stream. My roots delved deep into the earth to soak up that water. It refreshes me, that water.
He is like a tree planted by streams of living water,which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. Psalm1:3
But lately, I just don't feel refreshed. I feel dry and very thirsty. My leaves are brittle and beginning to fall. Nothing I do seems to be right and I wonder 'where has God gone.'
I feel I have done or am doing what God has asked of me. Why can't I hear him?
Why don't I feel his presence? Is there something else in my heart that I need to repent of?
Lord, please come back and refresh me. Show me if there isn't a right attitude in my heart. Help me to feel your presence in my life. I'm here every morning Lord to spend time with you yet I still walk away dull. Where are you? Please show me what you want me to do. For now Lord, I will just meditate on the fact that your grace is enough. In Jesus' name and all according to your will, Amen
