One morning as I was moving from one task to another, I heard “I never asked you to live this way.” I stopped what I was doing and just sat down. But I do it for you Lord. “I never asked that of you.” That moment began a life change for me. Slowly I started looking at my calendar and began removing things. With each thing I removed, it felt like a weight was being lifted. It was a slow process.
For me spending quiet time with Jesus, working out, eating right, and getting enough sleep are non-negotiables in my life. When I start losing any of those, I begin losing my balance. I lose my joy then honestly I am no good to anyone. Whatever it is that fills your tank, make time for it. Make it a priority. I know as mamas we give to so many and a lot of times we don’t have anything left. Take a moment today to write down your non-negotiables and work them into your schedule. You can’t pour out of an empty cup.
