Have you ever been at a point in your life where the “air was out of your tires”? I’m there right now. The energy of things surrounding the holidays has left me feeling lifeless as I begin 2019. The atmosphere is the same at work. I guess we are all worn out from our various life activities.
I’m glad it’s the weekend. This is a time to rest, reflect, and reboot. We all need to take time to slow down the pace and do some things we really enjoy rather than simply fulfilling responsibilities. One pastor wrote an article several years ago, describing this issue as going from duty to delight. I find that to be accurate. I want to be able to find delight once again in my duties.
As I write, I think about another “r” word I didn’t include in the last paragraph – refocus. Colossians 3 begins by telling us to set our minds on things above. Sounds like a good way to reinflate the tires.
