Day 19 of 21
Zeal & Fervor
Not gonna lie. I had to look these words up on Mr. Google dictionary. So humor me as I take us back to elementary school.
Zeal: // great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective.
Fervor: // intense and passionate feeling.
These words jumped at me as I read Romans 12:11. "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord."
Today we focus on recharging our spiritual batteries. LOVE THIS because it's a reminder that we are not the energizer bunny. And we need to refuel, recharge, regroup and reset. Often.
It takes energy to do God's work! And a well-rested Christian can be a much more effective worker for God. So we should plan our life, our sleep, our plans accordingly.
Perhaps by now we can all agree that exercise decreases stress. If we are drained... our body tells us we should sit on the couch and veg out. Our brains should tell us that it's the perfect time to get our blood flowing with a quick 20 minute workout.
This is a MIND SHIFT!
Also, if you're a person with too many demands and too few hours in which to meet them, it's probably time to examine your priorities while you pare down your daily to-dos. (pg. 202).
