I hope your weekends were filled with fellowship, family, and friends, and that your minds are clear going into the new week. If not… you probably need to secure your face mask.
You ever have a friend ask you to help them out with an issue? Only to realize that you can’t help because you haven’t even figured out the problem yourself?
How can we help others secure their issues if we haven’t secured our own?
Quick Example: you ever been on an airplane? While the flight attendant is giving instructions on what to do in case of an emergency, he/she tells you to first secure your oxygen mask and then secure those of young children or others that need assistance around you.
Now securing yourself could be easy… as simple as praying or taking time to just be! It doesn’t make you selfish to need “me time”. Having time for yourself allows you the allotted time needed to relax, to center yourself, and to unlock answers you weren’t even aware you were looking for.
You ever been looking for something and can’t find it anywhere? Then stop looking for it and it appears lol… stuff like that!
Having trouble securing your mask?
Take a walk, meditate, read, participate in your favorite hobby, just be. Me time is not used for stressing either, but just the opposite, turning over your worries and preparing yourself to move forward. In solitude it is a lot easier to study the desires of your heart and hear God speak without the distractions of everything around you. It can also be used for rest and refreshment… it’s simply easier to secure ourselves while we are being still. I leave you with this…
Psalm 46:1 (NLT)
God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
Until next time…Around Thursday… Or Friday =)…
Thanks again, God bless and One love.
