Exodus 20:8-11 (MSG) Observe the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Work six days and do everything you need to do. But the seventh day is a Sabbath to GOD, your God. Don’t do any work—not you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your servant, nor your maid, nor your animals, not even the foreign guest visiting in your town. For in six days GOD made Heaven, Earth, and sea, and everything in them; he rested on the seventh day. Therefore GOD blessed the Sabbath day; he set it apart as a holy day.
Are you overwhelmed by how you have your life organized, or in danger of burn out? Has your life gotten so overwhelming and busy that it takes everything you have in you to keep from having a nervous breakdown? If your life has somehow turned to a life of chaos, confusion, and conflict on a daily basis, you need to stop now before it’s too late. It’s time for a sanity check and Godly decision; you don’t have to live this way anymore!
According to recent polls, the American workforce, is burdened by a great deal of stress; 77 percent reported feeling occasional burnout, which, by the way doesn’t discriminate by age, gender, or other common groupings. This matter is now a reality in the church force as well.
The first thing I would recommend this week if you’re feeling overwhelmed is that you honor that commandment about the Sabbath. Take a day where you spend time worshipping God, and the rest of the day away from anything close to your daily routine. Take a walk, Go to a park or the gym. That’s right “shut it all down”, “Time to Regroup” your life. Your family are depending on you to make the right choice today.
Quote: H. G. Wells (1866-1946)-“Until a man has found God, he begins at no beginning and works to no end.”
