I’ve used “I’m busy” as a badge of honor too much. My focus really should be on honoring the Lord by keeping His command to have periods of rest. As I approach a very busy summer, this will be a challenge to be sure. When I don’t take breaks or rest as I should it communicates that I am always available to everyone, most often at not being available to God. Having a day of rest makes me available to God and renews me to better available to people the rest of the week. It essentially enables me to last longer. I just have to keep reminding myself and others that like John The Baptist: I am not The Christ. #leadership #mentor #lifecoach
One thought on “Take a break.”
Amen! I feel the exact same way. I always feel like I look “better” when I say I’m busy because it makes me unavailable. However, I should be available to those who need me so I can serve them.
