Refresh Your Soul

2 min read

Learn how spending time with Jesus can energise you today. Refresh your soul with some time in His life-giving presence. Let the unhurried rhythm of Heaven recalibrate your heartbeat. As you look for Him today, may the light of God’s face shine on you.

And as He turns towards you, may you feel the warm embrace of grace transform you.

Are you aware of your need for God today? Or, being honest, have you flown hurriedly into your to-do list without pausing to let God in?

Let’s slow down. Allow yourself to feel present in this moment.

However long you’ve been walking with Jesus, it doesn’t reduce your need for Him. We all need God’s help every day.

Dwelling in God’s presence is like drinking water. Even though we’ve known about water all our lives, it doesn’t stop us from getting thirsty. That first sip of cold water on a hot day will always feel amazing. We need water to sustain us. It keeps us alive!

Living Water

Jesus is our living water—our daily renewer, restorer, and refresher. We cannot go a moment without Him. Our soul longs for Jesus. It rejoices in His company. We’re here to drink from His life-giving water.

Although you might have heard that sentiment before, don’t let it become too familiar. Amid life’s busyness and mundanity, our souls can be lulled into thinking we can survive by ourselves. We forget our daily need for God and work harder and longer to stay afloat.

Within the chaos, though, we become weary. Our spiritual life drifts. So, as we linger here, meandering and contemplating, let’s allow God’s Spirit to bring us back to truth.

Rest for your Souls

Jesus is our unfailing source of rest. True refreshment is available nowhere else.

Hear Christ’s words in Matthew 11:28–30. Receive them as if you’re taking a long, cool drink.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”

Wherever there’s heaviness in your life, Jesus invites you to receive His rest. Will you go to Him? Allow yourself a moment’s contemplation.

What’s wearing you down today? God didn’t design you to be a 24-7 productivity machine. He’s not asking that of you. Instead, He’s inviting you to find refreshment in His presence; to slow down; to connect with Him.

With Jesus, your soul can be restored. In Christ, you can live a fruitful life for God’s glory but you can do it sustainably. No more boom and bust.

Instead, put Jesus-centered rest on your agenda today. Make space for it. Encounter the stillness in Christ that your soul craves. Breathe in. Breathe out. Inhale the refreshment Jesus is offering you. Then exhale your need to constantly keep going.

Refresh Your Soul: Let’s Pray

Let’s pray Jesus will restore our weary hearts today: Dear God, I’m tired! I acknowledge that I often try to get by without you, forgetting the life-giving joy that’s available in your presence. Today, I accept your invitation. I come to you with my exhaustion. Refresh me. Give me rest for my soul. In Jesus’ name. Amen
