We all need rest. We sleep. We take breaks. We realize the need of our bodies to re-charge. But, we are more than just a body. We are heart, mind, body, and soul. All the parts of us need time to re-charge. Some parts need more re-charging than others. Some parts need different types of re-charging. We sometimes get to thinking that we are just to busy for re-charging. We just cannot take the time to re-charge.
Truth is that we cannot afford to not re-charge. If we keep going without taking care of ourselves, then we are headed for burn-out. We may get to the point, where the joy of life is gone. We are so worn out that everything is a chore, and we have lost our joy. Take the time for renewal so that you can experience the joy of living. Take the time to re-charge, to rest, and to renew yourself.
Take time to consider what re-charges you. What can you do for yourself? You are part of God’s creation, and you must take care of God’s creation. Take time for you.
