"Pour all of your energy into trusting Me. It is through trust that you stay connected to Me, aware of My Presence. Each step...can be a step of faith." (280)
Through the years I've become aware of how various life dynamics can tend to drain off my energy while others tend to give me energy. Learning how to wisely monitor that and pace myself has been very helpful. However, I have discovered that spending quality time in God's Word really helps me navigate my day, refocus and pace my overall energy much better. There's a little acrostic I've crafted to help me specifically tackle the demands of each day...STEP Energy!
My ability to cope well and function effectively has a lot to do with the amount of STEP (Spiritual/Thankful/Emotional/Physical) Energy I have. All are needed to cope with the stresses of my daily life. This can certainly vary from day to day, but my overall energy levels are certainly much stronger when I've fueled my STEP tank...which empowers me to take that next step today and every day.
