To be refreshed, renewed, to enjoy and even live a healthy life we need to take intentional actions every day, every moment.
Our lungs, Breathing: We are refreshed by air
Our body, Energy: We are refreshed by food, water and sleep
Our mind, Thinking: We read, explore, and ponder
What about Our heart? What refreshes our heart? After a long day or year of taking care of others, helping out where we can, being available when needed. Do any of the above refresh our heart? No
The heart needs love. True, unfailing, unconditional love. But there are different sources of love, just like air and reading
Our lungs, are destroyed by smoking
Our body, is whittled away by lack of sleep and weakened by bad eating habits
Our mind, corrupted by falsities or dulled by entertainment
What about Our Heart? What types of love can impact us? Seeking love from the wrong places fails to refresh us as well.
Think about it. Are you refreshed? Where is your source of love? Other people's love of you, who respect and admire you? Fleeting at best, a bad mood, a crooked glance wipes away this type of support.
Where does true, unfailing, unconditional love come from?
Be filled with that love, and you will be refreshed. You will find "Peace beyond understanding"
