That has been a similar thing on my mind as someone who lives with chronic illness but is also in ministry. I tend to want to forge ahead and push through the fatigue and other symptoms.
However, especially in the past few years, I have come to realize I need to temper my driven self a bit. So I plan to incorporate a little down time each day for relaxing instead of waiting until I can’t possibly go any further. That may mean focusing on quality not quantity.
So one theme verse for me from the bible will be in Isaiah 40:31-
“but those who wait on the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
Relax in the presence of Jesus listening to worship music each day in the afternoon. Even take a nap if I have to.
So that is one of my goals. What are some or one of yours?
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
