“Can all your worries add a single moment to your life?” Luke 12:25 (NLT)
God blesses us with relationships, work, play, and ideas, but somehow, we run out of time to accomplish all we have planned in our daily schedule. Where does the time go?
Rick Warren, pastor and author of The Purpose Driven Life says, “Time is our most precious gift because we only have a set amount of it.”
We can optimize our day by reflecting on God’s goodness, as David did in Psalm 23 and allowing the Good Shepherd to restore our souls. If our workload becomes too heavy, placing ourselves under the covering of the Shepherd makes the day more effortless. Spiritual refreshment is a conscious choice that generates better performance. “The Lord is my shepherd.” The Shepherd loves His sheep. Embrace His love throughout the day to survive what might come against us.
Our best requires rest. Schedule what matters most and take breaks in between. The Lord desires for His people to “lie down in green pastures.” Take a few minutes in the day to reflect on God’s provision for each family member and friend.
The Shepherd “leads us beside calm, quiet waters.” Welcome His Spirit to lead us through the day. Experiencing peace requires a calm mind. God provides spiritual strength to those who seek Him. In the quiet pastures, “He restores our souls.” Recharging our souls raises our energy level for added playtime.
During stressful times refresh in His presence. Personalize this beautiful Psalm to provide spiritual renewal. It comes with a guarantee to add value to time.
