Last week, I posted about being tired–what makes me tired, and what being tired does to me. Today, I’m finishing up this mini-series with what I’m doing to wake back up so as to prevent Satan from digging his claws into me.
- Spiritual aerobics. I’m getting back into the Bible like I was a few weeks ago. I’m going to start in the post-exile history books of Ezra and Nehemiah. Both of them have elements of revival in them, so they are a great place for me to start. I’m going to work on getting my prayer stuff back in order. I tend to pray throughout the day, but I also recognize the value of setting aside time to pray intensely. I know that when I do these things, I’m in much better shape physically. I also need to let some of my guys in on my struggles. I tend to keep things to myself, and that’s just retarded. I need to take advantage of the community I have.
- More water, less sugar. I’ve gotta stop loading up on soda and put more water in my body. I also bought some cranberry juice (which is good for my one kidney that works), which I water down 50-50 to stretch it out. So, I may not be super successful on this one, but I’m going to try. I know that when I’m not binging on Dr. Pepper, I’ve got more energy and focus. And yeah, yeah, yeah… I should start exercising more and eat organic plants and get a colonic. Probably not gonna happen right now. One thing at a time…
- Repent. I need to repent of the anger, especially when I vent it toward my family. I need to actively repent of laziness and start serving others again. I need to be watchful of my thoughts and work towards purity of mind. I need to repent of worry and replace my trust in God.
What do you find to be helpful in snapping out of a tired season?
