We all get tired, fatigued and exhausted. We were not made to go so fast all the time, as a dear friend of mine would say “Mach II with our hair on fire” all the time day and night, day after day after day. We will break down, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Even when God created the world it is written that on the seventh day he rested…
“By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done.”
The pace of life can easily spin out of control if we let it. We must be more self-aware of our limits and be Ok with saying no to an invitation that may just be an event or time that will not work for us. Take time to be with God in your life and learn ways to balance the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual parts of your routine to present the best version of you. May God’s love and peace be with you.
“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”
