The batteries get weak and tired. Too much drain. Too many activities at once. Thankfully, they are rechargeable! All they need is a boost. A shot of new energy. So you plug them in. Soon they are ready to go again. Funny how we think our own lives work on the same principle. Drain – Plug in – Go again! In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Drain – DISCONNECT – Go. You see, when you disconnect, you allow for your sense of orientation to shift from doing, to being; from outside engagement, to inner reflection. And it gives God a chance to be heard over the din of your life. Disconnecting lowers the sound of your life so you can suddenly hear the still small voice of the Holy Spirit. That above all else will give you the reorienting boost you need to go again. Hopefully the last couple of weeks has been a good chance to disconnect. Let that be a time to renew and reorient your life around the new energy that comes from God’s presence.
