One day when my oldest son was about 11 years old, he walked into our bedroom with his shoulders slumped and said, “The charger is broken- it won’t charge the laptop and it just died”.
My husband brought the laptop into our bedroom and first thing he checked all the connections on the cord. A few minutes later, I noticed that he had put the laptop down and didn’t seem too worried about it.
“Did you fix it?” I asked.
“Oh, yea I did”, he said. “The connection just needed to be cleaned. It was just dirty. After I cleaned it, it connected just fine and now it is charging.”
It was that simple, a clogged connection.
Your connection point to God is your heart. It is where the power of God fills you and the grace of God heals you. Your heart gets clogged and dirty from the wear and tear of life, with bits of small lies believed or big judgments perceived getting in the crevices. These days it may be getting clogged by fear as you read Covid-19 headlines and news reports.
Your heart needs to be cleaned often.
Fear and anxiety cleaned out so that you can connect fully to faith, to hope and to courage.
Pray this prayer as many times as you need to:
Search me, O God, and know my heart;
Try me and know my anxious thoughts;
And see if there be any [n]hurtful way in me,
And lead me in the everlasting way.
Psalm 139:23-24 NASB
It is amazing what a difference it makes when your heart is clear and your connection with God is restored to full power.
What is clogging your connection to God today?
What is filling your heart today?
