Soul Peaceful: Sweet Spot

Monday, March 30, 2020

You gave abundant showers, O God; you refreshed your weary inheritance.”
(Psalm 68:9, NIV)


Sweet spot = a place of comfort, peace, and refreshing

When you get stressed or overwhelmed what do you do? Do you give up, cry out, or fall down? Do you exercise, watch television, sing, or write?

All throughout the gospels, many crowds surrounded Jesus. He had many an opportunity to become stressed and overwhelmed, but instead of giving up, He accomplished the work; and in the midst of His ministry, you can find Him often retreating to be alone to rest from His labors.

Jesus had a sweet spot!

Never did Jesus in all His years of healing others neglect to find reprieve from the masses to heal Himself. He always located a sweet spot in the mountains or in a garden to experience calm, to get assurance, and to spend sweet quality time with the Father. We should take a lesson from our Lord.

What’s your sweet spot?

There may be weeks where you find you’ve worked your fingers to the bone, and you have to make yourself retreat to a sweet spot of renewal and rejuvenation. This spot does not have to be a physical place, because life does not always afford you the opportunity to pick up and go to a place of relief. I want to challenge you to find the sweet spot in your mind that will stimulate feelings of comfort, peace, and refreshing. Remember, you’re not relinquishing yourself from duty, it’s just a sweet break with the Savior.

Use your imagination...what does your sweet spot look like? What sounds do you hear? Are you alone or surrounded by loved ones? Do you pray, sing, draw, create, curate, or just close your eyes and sigh?

Allow today's meditation guide you in creating your sweet spot.

God refreshes you when you become weary. His Spirit comforts you throughout the day, and Jesus’ example urges you on toward replenishment. Find your peace in Him and indulge in His refreshing presence.

Until next time my dears...

Be Soul Peaceful,
