As a child I loved the refreshing taste of a frozen popsicle on a hot summer day. The cold sticky juice running down on to my hand and arm, because I could not eat the frozen sweetness fast enough…a refreshing way to cool off!
Now, I understand that I can never really be refreshed until I repent and turn to God. It is in the forgiveness of my sins that I find relief from my troubles and are truly refreshed by the presence of the Lord.
“Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord…” Acts 3:19
