Slowing Down to Honor God
I regularly take my Sundays off, but running the past workweek at full speed left me with a bad headache yesterday.
After spending most of the nights in the past week working late at the office, I decided to go home earlier yesterday (after 2 classes and a meeting) and spent the rest of the day getting extra sleep, eating and watching iflix with hubby.
My headache reminded me that while I give my best at work to honor God who gave me the ability and opportunity to do so, He also won’t be pleased with exhaustion.
This morning, I am back up with renewed enthusiasm for a series of things to do — but grateful for His gentle reminder for me to lightly step on the brakes, slow down and fully enjoy the ride.
