Need Refreshing?

Repentance leads to refreshing.
Therefore, if we don’t feel refreshed, perhaps we need to repent?
I know that was not what you expected, but it’s the truth.  See Acts 3:19

Sometimes, the repentance is not always for the common things we tend to think of in relation to repentance (such as for lying, cheating, stealing, etc.), but for things like worry, unforgiveness, doing our own thing (that thing that is contrary to what God said to do), etc.  When we take time to ask God to show us what we need to repent about, and seek to hear His answer through prayer and His Word, He will show us.

Definition of “refresh”:
to provide new vigor and energy by rest, food, etc.; to make fresh again; reinvigorate or cheer (a person, the mind, spirits, etc.), to bring restoration
Definition of “repent”:
to feel sorry, self-reproachful, or contrite for past conduct; regret or be conscience-stricken about a past action, attitude, etc.; to feel such sorrow for a sin or fault as to be disposed to change one’s life for the better
Dear Lord, show me what I need to repent of, and refresh me through the presence of Your Holy Spirit today.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
