“Take Back Your Life” a 40 day Devotional Journey by Levi Lusko.
It’s a funny thing, sometimes, when you say something out loud and then what you say comes to fruition. This summer has been so hard. There is not enough space to write all the things that have happened to our family. Our dynamics have changed, hurts have taken place, illnesses have popped up (not Co-Vid19), and the uncertainty of life due to the pandemic.
I’m so physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually drained. A friend of mine asked if we could go to supper. I have not been getting out (aka 2 trips to Wal-Mart since February) and go to supper. She invited my husband and boys to go to her house where her husband grilled supper for my crew. What a treat.
Laying It All Out
I told her that we needed to do this more! It was such a breath of fresh air to just be alone with someone you know loves you and does not judge you. One who listens and is just as nuts as you are. I told her that I wanted to do a devotional but was finding it hard because my heart is just hard right now.
Don’t get me wrong, I love Jesus. I’m just weary. She said if I find one, let her know and we could do it. Well, the next day, I checked the mail and a package had arrived. I had no idea what it was because I was pretty certain I didn’t order anything. My son-in-law tends to have things sent here, but it had my name on it.
Opening my Package
I opened it up and out tumbled 2 of these devotionals. One for me to review (I had forgotten that I signed up to review it) and one for a friend. Uhm, hello Jesus, I hear you. I see you. Gonna pick up what you are throwing down.
Then I read the “Before” chapter and by the time I finished those 4 little pages, I was in tears. I’ve been so focused on the “ants” in my life that I had neglected to see the billions of mosquitoes flying around. When you get this devotional, you will understand that phrase.
It is speaking to my soul on a level I thought nothing could reach. Speaking Truths and opening my eyes to so many things that I thought I had hidden well. The Lord shines light on all darkness. Light has shown all over my darkness and it frightens me, in a good way.
Please Go and Do
Go and buy this devotional! Buy one for a friend. Do a study on it at your local church or in your home (socially distant, of course). It is worth it. May God bless you and keep you in all that you do in your life. I pray this devotional speaks to you as it has me. This is one that I will read through and then go back in and marinate on each section. God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
