Have you ever been on a long drive interstate that took a few days? One of the things I hate to do is stop for petrol. Do you know why? It’s because all of those semi-trailers, caravans, and slow pokes that I have meticulously passed are all going to pass me while I am filling up! Now, that’s annoying. I wish someone would invent a way to fill up without having to stop.
But the truth is that unless you stop and refuel you’re not going to make it. You are going to stall and be stuck by the side of the road. That’s even more annoying!
I find life is a bit like that. There is so much to do, so many people to see and so many places to go. We all get very busy and if we’re not careful we can begin burn out.
We all need to learn what it is to STOP … and to refuel … physically, emotionally, and even spiritually.
How’s your journey at the moment? Are you going strong or are you running on empty?
What do you need to do to refuel? What kind of activities fill you up and give you energy for life? Make sure you take time for those things.
Refuel … think about it.
