Food for thought…running low

Being filled


“That ye may be filled with all the fullness of God” Ephesians 3:19

Yesterday was a super busy day for me.  When you have four kids, you expect it to be busy, and it usually is.  But for some reason, I was doing too much and I was dealing with a sick child at home.  I had cleaned my house, ran errands for my husband, played with my kiddos, ran to the store, mowed my lawn, weeded my gardens, organized my husbands barn, did all the animal chores, and then I was on my way to help my grandmother at her house.  When I looked down, I noticed my gas light was on ( it had been on for a couple days and I just was delaying the inevitable by not putting gas in) so then I started to worry because the next gas station was farther than I was hoping.  I did make it to the gas station.

As I was thinking about how grateful I was that I didn’t run out of gas, I heard that still small voice telling me that I was spiritually running low too.   I had quickly gotten in God’s word that morning, and prayed for the day but I went about my day trying to get everything done that I needed to, and God was put on the back burner.

I got home and I was exhausted, physically.  But I felt that spiritual emptiness also.  Ladies, it is so important to have fellowship with God all throughout our day.  He is our life source, we NEED Him, we can cruise along without Him for only so long until we will end up running out of gas.

My prayer for myself today, and for all of you reading is that we would think about God all throughout our day.  That He would be on the forefront of our minds, that our feet wouldn’t hit the floor in the morning before we have first communed with our Savior.  Have a blessed day everyone 🙂
