The most embarrassing thing happened to me today! 🤦🏽♀️
My. Car. Stopped! Not because it was broke down, but simply due to negligence! I ran out of Gas! Get this! Going to the gas station! I could seeeeee the gas Station y’all! I was sooooo mad!!!
Then of course the Lord decided to have a convo with me…in my time of embarrassment and being mad! 🙄😴😂 (Hello Dad! I’m mad! Not mad at you…but I’m salty dude! 😂)
We basically do this!! We will fake ourselves in saying “We got it!” “Keep going!” “You almost there!” “You got enough!” When there are clear signs and indicators that you need a moment to PAUSE, take a break, rest and allow our hearts to be filled again!!! You don’t have to force because all you giving out is fumes annnnd those you’re called to, or the mission and destiny set before you don’t need fumes! It. Needs. Water!!! It. Needs. Fresh. Oil!!! It’s the only time oil and water will mix!
A pause isn’t a sign of weakness, it’s a sign of strength annnnd for too long personally I thought it was a sign of weakness! Naaaawwww, it’s a very mature act when you can acknowledge those times to PAUSE!
My prayer for you ladies is that we all acknowledge those times….Also…
“I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13 NLT
Our families, ministries, and anything else we are connected to don’t need fumes from us…they need a FULL us!! Rest restores passion and desire! You’ll be soooo excited to simply BE YOU when rested!!
