Do you have that uneasy feeling in your heart?
Have you ever?
You can't quiet put your finger on what "it" is that's bothering you and all you want is to feel peace.
As I was reading scriptures in my Life Application Study Bible (NLT), I felt the following scripture shed light on what I believe, as Christians, we all face from time to time. You know, it's when you want to get away from everyone. Don't pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about here. We've all been there.
~ Proverbs 14:4 ~
Without an oxen a stable stays clean, but you need a strong ox for a large harvest.
Footnotes: When a farmer has no oxen, the stable will be clean but he will be unable to make a living. The only way to keep your life free of people problems is to keep it free of people. But if your life is empty of people, it is useless; and if you live only for yourself, your life loses its meaning. Instead of avoiding people, we should serve others, share our faith, and work for justice. Is your life clean but empty? Or does it give evidence of your serving God wholeheartedly?
Proverbs is packed with tons of goodies like this!
Sometimes all we need to fill that craving is a sweet verse from the Word.
