Lemon Squeezy!

December 30, 2006

Ever felt like you’ve had all the juice squeezed out of you?

When making homemade lemonade lemons get completely battered, so all the juice and much of the pulp is extracted.  In life our zest can be drained out of us if we try to do too much, either for those we love, or even for God.

Christmas can be a busy time so we need to consciously make the effort to have space, to have silence, and rest!  As we approach the New Year may you have a time of being revitalised…

The biggest challenge i was given this year was to “just sit and let God love you”.  Try it.  Go somewhere you won’t be disturbed, not to read scripture or to intercede for any issues, but to simply “let God love you!”.

  2. In His Hands,

    I just love your postings. What a great perspective and connection to everyday life and what you learned thru relationship with God.

    Every yr before the new year I sit and think of themes and goals about where I’d like to be, or see changed for the new year and this year, I’d like be more active in creating, maintaining and building up relationships. Thats something I need help in,

    Thanks for your posts and your lessons.

    i was just reminded of the Audio Adrenaline song “Underdog”. its a bit of a tangent from your point, but for those that know the song, when life beats you up, give it up to Jesus he already ran this race and won it 🙂

  10. Happy New Year, Maria. May God love on you lots in 2007!

    Happy New Year, Maria! I think you speak for many with this post, and I really hope we can all find more “alone time” (with Him) in 2007.
