With the Holidays fast approaching and the gift giving that accompanies them, I’ve been in gift thinking mode for a week or two. This comes long before actual gift getting mode, which is typically a lot more frantic because typically it’s done the week before Christmas, or even the day before for some of the kamikaze gift getters out there.

With the firm arrival of the technology age, it seems that you can’t look at anyone’s ‘I want’ list without seeing something that requires some sort of power source.

When my son was young, I remember certain trucks, cars and other small vehicles that at the very least took batteries you could get at the local store or, at the worst, required batteries that you could only get from the manufacturer along with a price tag to match.

Nowadays it’s Kindles, IPads and other devices that people want, and, they all require a power source too.

But, power sources are funny things when you get to this level of technology, gone are the days when you could just buy any old battery, or even a specially manufactured one, no, nowadays you have to have a battery and charge the device up too. When the power runs down, you have to charge it up again at the same type of power source you used before.

I’m always amazed when my son and I travel, that people now seek out electrical outlets so they can charge up their technology. Years ago, in an airport no one cared where the electrical outlets were, now they’re a sought after commodity and when you find one that’s not being used you quickly plug-in before anyone else can.

It seems to me that this is the way it is with our relationship with the LORD.

There are many times when we’re drained from the top of our physical selves down to the very core of our spirits, and when we look around at our lives many times we find it’s because we haven’t taken the time to reconnect with the source of all our strength and power, the LORD Himself.

The funny thing about this is that like a lot of the devices that need to be plugged into electrical outlets, that are pretty much everywhere, we too can plug into our life source the LORD anywhere we go because he is there, anywhere and anytime. We just need to take the time to look for Him, plug-in quickly then sit in His presence and absorb who He is.

“Cease striving and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” Psalm 46:10
