Life is so busy! We rush through it all so we are able to check things off of our lists and “feel” accomplished. In all this busy we are losing site of the things that are really important; true joy, God’s peace, and being excited about Jesus. We talk about self-care because we are running on empty most days. I do think that self-care and time alone are important, even Jesus went off to be alone, with God, but why are we needing this so badly now?
I think as Christians we want to be excited about Jesus, we want to have joy and peace, but we walk away from our Bibles and devotionals and run into our day of endless cleaning and laundry and kids. Our excitement for what we learned that morning is gone by the time the first bowl of Cheerios hit floor.
