Running On Empty

When you feel like there are not enough hours in the day, expectations are too high, it’s impossible to get everything done you need to do and your life is spinning out of control - stop and ask yourself, “When was the last time I prayed? When was the last time I studied my Bible?” and “When was the last time I truly felt close to God?” Quite often when you are stressed out and your anxiety level has reached it’s limit - it’s because you have neglected your quiet time with God. Somehow the pressures of life and demands of others, placed you on overload and instead of making Jesus “first” in your life, He was relegated to the back burner. Whenever you neglect God - your life will spiral downward. You can’t possibly be happy because Jesus IS the Joy of Living! Yet, too often, when feeling burned out, and over-stressed, you reach for your smartphone to check Twitter, Facebook and Instagram - which leaves you feeling even more anxious. Instead of going for social media - go to God’s Word! Stop running on empty, and read his comforting words of love and allow the Holy Spirit to speak to your heart. Then, drop to your knees and ask for an extra measure of God’s peace, the greatest stress reliever of all! Text: Proverbs 16:3, Isaiah 26:3, Psalm 55:22
