“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.” Mark 6:31
As you know, I have not posted a blog in a minute. I took a sabbatical for a while. I needed a break. I needed some rest. And guess what, it's okay. It is okay!
We have traded the old times of sitting on the porch with family to sending text messages to hold conversations. We are constantly on the go and never take time to unplug or unwind. The laundry has to be done. The bills have to be paid. The list goes on and on.
When you are overwhelmed, self-care is a must. Self-care is so important for our mental health, social health, emotional health, and physical health. Self-care is not always about shopping or taking a trip. Sometimes is about turning the phone and TV off to listen to the sound of nature. Unplugging and taking a day off from work was the best self-care I could have given myself today. My body needed the rest.
When we feel overwhelm and worn, help us to remember that we can rest in You. Remind us that it is okay to steal away and find peace in Your presence.
In Jesus Name, Amen!
