Use Your Gifts to Change the World Wednesday – Refresh Your Soul

Seek God’s will in all you do and he will direct your path.     Proverbs 3:6

I can hardly believe it’s Wednesday already!  Whenever I’m busy the time flies.  Let me first tell you the book I was referring to yesterday is Living Beyond Your Feelings (Joyce Meyers, Faith Words Hachette Book Group, 2011).  If you haven’t read it, the book is entertaining and very helpful.  I took the challenge yesterday and laughed all day long. It was amazing how much better I felt and how much work I was able to accomplish.

Do you ever feel like you just don’t know what else you can do to change the world?  Do you sometimes feel your efforts do not make a difference?  Well, then it’s time to refresh your soul.  It’s good to constantly refresh by studying God’s word.  However, everyone is not in the same place on the refreshment path.  My husband, for example, sat down every day and read the Bible an hour and a half a day.  He let nothing stand in the way of his study time.  He was very committed to reading the Bible from cover to cover.  I was so impressed.  That is a difficult path for me.  I enjoy using a Bible study plan I found, where I read a little from the Old and New Testament every day.  I have also been adding studying 4 chapters of a particular Book every day for a month, meditating on the chapters and trying to memorize one verse each week.  I’m a theology student, though.  This might be too much or not enough for you.  I have heard others say they do a more indepth study, which I also do with class assignments.  Still others tell me that they read their devotional and study the related scriptures.  None of this is wrong or more right.  The important thing is to include Bible study in your life to refresh your soul and not just make it an on a check list of something to do. I think you will find, as I have, that Bible study helps to put daily life into perspective.

So, today I challenge you to change the world by refreshing your soul.  God bless you.

  1. I like to study the Bible along with Bible Hub online. With every verse they have commentaries and sermons you can read. This has helped me understand the words of the Bible better.
