Exodus 31:15a (NKJV) Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD.
Did you know that you are a candidate for burn out, or maybe in danger of burn out? Has your life gotten so busy that it takes every ounce of energy on a daily basis simply to keep from falling behind? And you are really not doing a very good job of that?
If so, I understand-it’s not a good feeling. 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 categories. Are you feeling burnt out?
The first thing I would recommend this week if you are feeling burnt out 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 grind. Take a walk, Go to a scenic park or just stay quiet at home. Stop receiving input and give your mind a rest.
Point to ponder- Sometimes we just need to be recharged from the giving out of ourselves, and need to just receive in the stillness of God alone! If we are careful we can allow those in our lives intimately to take the life out of us: Work, family, ministry, relationships etc.
