12 Ways to Turn Your Pain into Praise

Sapphires from Psalms

Better Than Jewels


When school started for me as a kid in the south, the air was crisp, and we broke out our sweaters. It’s a little cooler here now, and I love it, don’t you? Still we can find our days long and our strength fading. What I count on is that God will energize us, if we ask Him to.

In Him we live and move and have our being,” Acts 7:28. This verse has intrigued me ever since I came to faith.  Paul has such a handle on what it meant to be a Christ-follower. When I stop and soak in the meaning of this verse, I feel its power.

It is a formula for maintaining physical, mental, and spiritual energy. The stress of modern living saps us of our energy. But we have a renewal method. This scripture reminds us that God created us and that He can constantly and automatically re-create us! As we stay in constant contact with Him asking Him to replenish our energy, He will bring vitality into our weariness. He loves to show off like that. (In our weakness He is strong.)

Everyday, preferably about midafternoon when an energy lag usually comes, try repeating these verse while seeing yourself plugged into God’s spiritual life-line. Thank God for restoring you with His energy. Take a deep breath, breathe out your fatigue and breathe in God’s faithfulness. Then thank Him again and watch your mood lift and your energy increase.

Let me know how this works for you.

Thank you Linda just what I needed! I have been overwhelmed and sleep deprived lately.
