Multi-tasking every day or trying to be all things to all people, leaves us diminished not fulfilled. Sometimes I wonder why we push ourselves so hard. What do we hope to gain? Who are we trying to impress? You know, you don’t have to prove anything to anyone, especially not to God.
We all have times of weakness and times that we need Jesus and a safe harbor to rest and restore our minds and bodies. Take the time you need for yourself each day or at least each week. Rest in His love. Then let His strength carry you and sustain you in the days ahead.
“Lord, your power knows no limits. When I think of how boundless your strength, how endless your ability, I stand in awe. Considering how easily I tire, how quickly I become overwhelmed, it is clear I am not calling on your power enough. With your help, exhaustion will not win. Spring up a well of energy in me. Allow me to finish strong so I can shout of your provision to all who hear.” Prayers & Promises for Women
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Psalm 46:1-3 (NIV)
