Feeling down and out? Sometimes the daily grind leaves you with a lights-out feeling. The enemy wants to isolate you and bring you down, but God wants to set you free. Why not get a spiritual jump start?
Getting renewed doesn’t mean you have to be more religious. Instead, it means digging deeper into relationships. First, with Jesus, then with others. So seek activity where you will interact with people and grow. Join a group, get outside, anything… but move forward.
Even if you don’t have much time, you can still be creative. For instance, instead of the same old dinner routine, why not eat by candle-light? Or rather than browsing on your phone, give a friend a surprise call and set up time for coffee. Even small gestures can make a difference. So stop, pray and ask God to open up your creative side. You might be surprised what you discover inside you!
A message and prayer from Vincent:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Therefore, if any one is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, behold, the new has come.
2 Corinthians 5:17
The man gave names to all cattle, and to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for the man there was not found a helper fit for him.
PRAYER TO GET OUT OF A RUT
Oh merciful Lord,
I feel like I’m stuck, nothing motivates me, everything’s the same. Where is my joy?
Help me change, oh Lord, bring Christ closer to me. He shows me how to see with new eyes and a new heart the wonders you give me.
Let it begin with people, with those I encounter at home and in new places where I can share your Gospel and your love.
Renew my perspective. Show me the fresh brilliance of your glory, oh Lord, in everything everywhere.
May your Holy Spirit renew my soul.
In Jesus name I pray,
