Sometimes, its easy to get wrapped up in taking care of the people around us. You may find that you’re always giving, taking care of the children, working overtime at the office, or helping that friend who is struggling. And thats all good. But if youre not careful, you can end up feeling rundown. Thats why you have to take time every day to get filled back up. Your first priority should be taking care of yourself and making time to get into the presence of Jesus.
Throughout scripture, we see that in Gods presence there is fullness of joy, fullness of peace, and fullness of victory. In His presence, youre refreshed and restored. Thats why its so important to take time every day to read your Bible and meditate on His promises. We have to be diligent to have that quiet time with Him.
Today, take time to get alone with God and just say, God, I love You today. Thank You for my life, for my family, for the opportunities Youve given me. Lord, I know every good thing comes from You. When you live like that, with your heart connected to His, youll be refreshed, restored, reenergized and filled up for the journey of life!
