Me Time Is Not Selfish

It amazes me how many people have no quiet time to themselves. There is work, church, your kid's, their activities, your activities, friends, conferences, meetings, sports events, social networking and the attempt to take care of the home. It seems impossible to get "me time."

But, let me clear. "Me time," is not praisin' in your car on the way to work or home from work. It is not cooking or cleaning for your family. It is not doing anything for anybody else. It is doing something for youself, by yourself. The only other Person present during "me time" should be the Lord. It may be going for a walk or sitting by a window with a cup of tea. It may be spending time in the Word and/or praying. The idea of "me time" is having time to be with yourself and take a break from the hustle and bustle of our daily routines; to get recharged and gain strength for what we are called to do.

Even Jesus had "me time." He often would retreat from the crowds to hear from the Father and rest. God Himself rested on the seventh day and commands us to remember the Sabbath Day and keep it Holy. So often we look at that commandment and it is skipped over or not taken with the same weight as some of the others. The Lord wants you to rest. So, feel free to take a break from it all. You deserve it!
