Go For It !
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do then by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the tradewinds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
Are you feeling stuck lately? Is your life so busy with the things that have to be done that you are feeling exhausted and unfulfilled? Many of us have alot on our plates. Maybe you are a mother taking care of your littles ones, or working overtime to get that big project at work finished before the deadline. Or taking those extra college classes and working fulltime etc...
I've felt this way many times over different seasons in my life. If you are like me, it is easy to do do do for others but forget to take time to refresh your own spirit. Or you may feel guilty taking time for yourself.
"God has given each of you some special abilities, be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God's many kinds of blessings."
1 Peter 4:10 (LB)
God has given to each of us, our own unique gifts and talents. Yes, that means you too! You are His unique creation and you were designed for a purpose. There is no one else like you. Even if it's just 5 minutes a day, God is waiting to energize you. He will do this through His word and prayer, and He also wants to energize you through that unique gift or talent that He created in you.
So no matter how busy you are this week, make it a goal to spend time with Him in doing that special thing only you can do so well. It might be encouraging someone else through a written note, or getting started on painting that picture, or taking time to teach someone to read etc.... It may seem small to you, but it is Big to God! I promise that you will feel energized if you Just Do It!
Have a wonderful week,
