Have you ever been asked if you’re tired…cause you look tired? I hate when I am asked that question. Usually once finals for school roll around, I get asked that question a lot. Though, this question reminds me that I need to take care of myself.
There is a lot that we can get caught up with in our daily lives. Our society is one that is built on getting things accomplished as quickly as we can. So where does that leave room for taking care of ourselves? We have a duty to take care of ourselves spiritually, emotionally, and physically.
Spiritually, we need to make sure we take time out of our day to spend time with God. We all have some time in our day that we can save for Him, whether this is during a lunch break, in the morning, or before you head to bed. This time with God is important as you can recharge your batteries in a way! Spending time with God allows you to think about His word and apply it to your own life. It allows you time to reflect and come to God with the concerns of the day. This time is necessary for your spiritual health, and your walk with God.
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalm 32:7
When I think of some beautiful women that I look up to, I can see in their lives that they take time for themselves. Their beauty radiates because they love themselves for who they are and they respect their bodies. I challenge everyone reading this, to take a well needed break today. Even if it’s just for a few minutes, spend this time being mindful of the life you have. Let your body relax, and give thanks to God, who cares for you and loves you always, just as you should care for and love yourself. This well needed me time is an act of love towards yourself, and nothing is more beautiful than that!
Until Next Time,
