Mine come with frequency. It happens, usually in the evening when I can simply say I am tired. The solution can be a good night’s sleep. Today, as I wrote, was one of those days. I was totally deflated. I was not depressed, just void of joy.
The problem was, it was morning.
So I left off the radio and did not connect the I-pod. This was not a day for a sermon. It was a day to worship as I drove. It is hard to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit when you have a lot of distractions.
Certain songs came to mind.
"My Desire, to be like Jesus..."
"My Life Is in You, Lord..."
Certain scripture came to mind.
(Micah 6:8 NAS77) He has told you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you But to do justice, to love kindness, And to walk humbly with your God?
(Romans 5:8 NAS77) But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.We had a good conversation on the way to work. I can honestly say that the traffic did not bother me. I figured that every clown that cut in front of me just gave me more time to worship.
So I am ready to go again. I am not feeling old and tired. I am feeling experienced and prepared.
