I remember hesitantly asking a friend, “Do you ever feel numb about life, work, and sometimes even God?” It isn’t that you feel burnt out or depressed…you simply don’t feel anything at all. I was shocked when they said they had and that they completely understood. They suggested that I slow down, get some rest and spend some extended quiet time with God. Because “numb” is a warning sign.
“Never be lacking in zeal but keep your spiritual fervor serving the Lord.” Romans 12:11
If you’re like me, you wrestle with the extremes: too much or too little. How is your zeal for God? Is it healthy? Balanced? Does it fuel the way you serve God and others? Does it fuel the time you spend alone with God? If you’re feeling “numb” today, for whatever reason, I pray that God breathes new life and peace into your heart so that you can find joy as you serve Him and others.
