I watched Roomba go back and forth, getting every square inch, learning
the lay of the rooms, one room at a time. It was fascinating, but what was
even more fascinating was instinctively it knew right when it needed to be
charged and where to go!
Thanks for joining us for Wednesday’s Word with Kim-Evinda and Trench
I couldn’t help but giggle as I watched my little Roomba. He was showing
improvement in learning the rooms of my new house and it was so fun to
watch him work while I accomplished other things.
Suddenly, my app showed he was headed for a recharge. As I watched
him return to his place of dumping and recharging, I got to thinking…where
do we dump our junk? Where do we go for a recharge?
I don’t know about you, but in my current reality, these are relevant
questions. I’ve been feeling a bit sucker-punched lately and so this quiet
thought inspired by watching little Roomba was intensely powerful: I need
to dump up, not out and down, and I need to go straight to His Word to get
in His presence to get my recharge. My hope is in Him, not anyone or
anything that attempts to interrupt my peace.
His Word is a simple fix for a complex problem. So, this morning, I got
regrouped after dumping my hurt, frustration and even anger up to my
Abba who cares for me and ALL that concerns me, and then I sat in His
word for a bit, specifically Psalm 95:1-7.
As I read it and meditated on it the words soaked into my own life and I was
able to ground myself with a spiritual reality that overcomes my worldly
reality: He wants us to praise Him in the times of uncertainty for then we
will become certain of what is true.
Can I encourage you, friend, go to the ONE source that will help you
recharge and refresh all in one sitting?
Dumped and recharging….
