Get a Refill

Have you ever felt like your whole world was falling apart? 

Ever felt like literally everything that could go wrong was, in fact, going wrong? 

This is how I have felt recently. It is easy to lose track of your priorities and responsibilities when other areas of your life are so seemingly out of control.

I apologize for allowing my life circumstances to keep me from my obligations.

As an artist/minister, it is easy to get caught on a hamster wheel, constantly going and going, never taking time to breathe, rest and renew. Before you know it, a crisis happens, a sad phone call comes through, sickness attacks your body and BAM! You have to cancel events, stop taking calls from friends and slip quietly into a secret battle with depression and loneliness. Don't let this happen to you!

I encourage you to speak up.

It is ok to say "No" when your calendar is too full or when you simply don't have the energy. 

Get your refill from the Lord and bask in it for a moment until you are rejuvenated. Just like on an airplane, they advise you to put the oxygen mask on yourself before your children and the elderly. This is because you can be of no assistance to anyone if you are also not able to breathe.

Take care of yourself so that you can take care of the Lord's work.
