‘Fresh’ Nugget

This morning I came across a verse that struck a chord in me.

May Jesus himself and God our Father, who reached out in love and surprised you with gifts of unending help and confidence, put a fresh heart in you, invigorate your work, and enliven your speech. 2 Thessalonians 2:16-17 MSG

Wow, I want to be surprised with gifts of unending help and confidence. No fear. No reluctance. ‘Fresh’ is what I want in my life.

Fresh vision.

Fresh energy.

Fresh kindness.

Fresh purpose.

Lord, invigorate and energize us to speak words and do work that give life and encourage others today. Let us refresh others – for ‘whoever refreshes others will be refreshed’ (Proverbs 11:25).

Have a Fresh Friday!
