July 25–God’s Counter-intuitive Ways!

You work hard. You’ve got lots of responsibilities. But maybe not all the ability—or control—to make sure all those things that need to happen, happen. Your energy needs some boosting. Your mind, body and spirit could really use some refreshing!

Our God’s ways are so counter-intuitive to our human nature quite often almost all the time. Yet! Doing things God’s ways brings such blessings to us.

So! When you feel you don’t have a lot to give: Give. Be generous with your resources of love, time, effort, finances and prayer.

When you feel like you need some refreshing before you totally burn-out: Refresh someone else with the kindness of a smile, a thoughtful word, a thoughtful act—that shines with the love of Jesus.

A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refrehed. Proverbs 11:25

Yep! God’s ways are often counter-intuitive to how we want to do things or what we think we need to receive in order to be refreshed. But, go ahead! Try doing things God’s ways: Give Generously! Refresh Others!

And be blessed and enjoy the generous refreshment that comes to you—to each of us—when we do things in God’s counter-intuitive ways!

In love, peace and purposeful passion,                                                               Sylane
