Jeremiah 31:25 (NIV),“I will refresh the weary and satisfy the faint.”
Life doesn’t usually give us many opportunities to rest. We have to care for ourselves by carving out time for relaxation. If we don’t we will burn out, feel weary and faint. We live in a society that will make us feel guilty if we are not constantly on the go, doing this or doing that.
There is always something else we can do to keep busy, but is it worth it? It’s beneficial at times to choose quality over quantity. Sometimes less is more. Time is valuable and once it’s wasted, we can’t get it back.
God promises to refresh and satisfy us when we are tired. He will replenish our strength not just physically but also spiritually, mentally and emotionally. We’re up against a lot on a daily basis. Life comes at us from all different directions. But God is always by our side. He will never leave us (Hebrews 13:5).
Be sure to take time out for yourself and allow God to refresh you and satisfy your soul.
