I watch the fuel gage on my car. As it descends toward the big “E,” I begin looking for a gas station. I am aware that if I allow my fuel to run out that my means of transportation will come to a halt.

Occasionally, I allow my car to “run on fumes,” but not for long. I have found that my car is not the only “fuel gage” that I need to monitor. I have one too. When my energy and strength begin to plummet towards that empty mark, I need to refuel. Running on fumes emotionally is unwise.

Prayer: Dear Lord, I need daily doses of Your presence. Without You continually refilling me with Your strength, I cannot make it. You lift me. You help me. You sustain me (Psalm 28:7-9).
