How will you take care of you today?

Go ahead, read it again (I’ll wait.) Again, how will you take care of you today?  I know, the kids need this and the office needs that but how will you find peace today? I’m not referring to the 20 minutes or so you get in the morning naturally because everyone else is still asleep. And no, the time in the shower doesn’t count – you know, the time you spend pining over your to-do list and weight loss goals, try again.

What intentional time will you make for yourself today?

We easily get lost in the needs of everyone else but we can’t effectively take care of others if we don’t take care of ourselves. Make sure that your tank is full – mentally, spiritually, and physically. Spend time with God, exercise, eat well, and make time to just relax.  (1 Corinthians 6:19 ) “19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?” (NKJV)

How will you take care of yourself in order to be spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, and physically available to others? It’s not selfish, think of it as preparation to serve others.
