Are you easily exhausted? Do you ever feel that you are on the verge of burn-out?
That sometimes describes me. And yet, thankfully, I’m convinced that it doesn’t have to be this way. Whether we fall flat on our face or whether we finish the day energized depends upon what is fueling you.
If you’re at all like me, you begin the morning fueled by a large thermos of coffee. We think of food, and certain kinds of drinks, as fuel. Gatorade asks the question, ‘Is It In You?‘. Red Bull promises increased energy. Apparently some Major League Baseball players, in search of more of a lot of things, have turned to Human Growth Hormones (HGH) and anabolic steroids to gain an edge.
Most of us get the principle that what is “In You” hugely affects your output. What you might not know is that God provides something infinitely better than coffee, Red Bull, and HGH for your progress.
The apostle Paul (in his letter to the Colossians 1:3-14) speaks words of encouragement to a community of faith in desperate need of fuel for the journey. The fuel promised to the Colossians long ago, remains available to you and I today. I spoke about this on Sunday, January 27, 2008. Have a listen and you may find the way to gain fuel for the journey.
