Don’t burn out // 29-11-17

“Don’t burn out; keep yourselves fuelled and aflame. Be alert servants of the Master, cheerfully expectant. Don’t quit in hard times; pray all the harder.” Romans‬ ‭12:11-12 MSG‬‬

Burnout is a state of chronic stress that leads to physical and emotional exhaustion, cynicism and detachment, feelings of ineffectiveness and lack of accomplishment. The only way to really protect myself from this is to stay well connected to God, (filled with His Spirit, reading His Word, praying at all times and plugging in to the community of His church). Knowing that God is for me and with me and is wanting to lead me and use me for good works, keeps me present and alert to what He wants rather than trying to work it all out and do it all in my own strength! So Lord, lift off me today any responsibility or stress that is not mine to carry, help me just to believe and obey and leave the rest to You, amen 🙂
