Maybe What’s Missing in Your Life is this!…….

Our society wants us to spend every waking second of our lives doing something. As a result, the pace of life can become quite daunting. There are clients to meet, deadlines to make, calls to return. We run at 10,000 RPM for the entire day, then make our way home and have to deal with cooking dinner, washing laundry, and getting the kids to bed. We must learn to slow down in life. Race cars cannot be repaired while on the track, so why do we think we can “be still, and know” God (Psa. 46:10) when we cannot find the time to take a lunch break?TalktoGod
But there is a way to slow down when we’re running full throttle all day and night. It’s called margin. Put another way, it could be considered a reserve or simply breathing room.

Jesus thought it was important enough that he made it a routine part of his life on earth–he recognized his earthly limits and took time to get recharged. Consider this: When you don’t have any margin in your life, you cannot fully accomplish the things God reveals for you to do. There are numerous ways we can introduce breathing room into our lives. We can learn to say no when we’re already overloaded with tasks. We can anticipate the unexpected and add some time to the front end of meetings. We can take time to help others in ways that allow them to experience breathing room in their lives. Don’t move so fast that God’s voice is lost in the everyday. Take time to slow down and breathe so you can grow and get to know Jesus as a friend. If you will do this, you will find that Jesus is the kind of friend that will stick with you closer than a brother – Proverbs 18:24

 

Want to take time to get to know Jesus as a friend and get recharged? Say this prayer;58b3e0d824982e6c_150_Depressed1

Dear Jesus, I am overloaded, overburdened, and almost at the brink of being burnt out, I invite you to come in my life and give me rest, renewal, and refreshment. Help me obtain a fresh new perspective and help fill me up in my empty and tired places. Jesus, I want to grow with you and get to know you as a friend and a brother, please help me to be able to do this. I ask you to control the distractions, the noise and what is being dangled in front of me to try to steal my focus and abort my destiny, in your name I ask and pray – Amen!
