Sometimes I need a tuneup.
...Like when I take my car in for a tuneup I stop the engine...give the keys to the mechanic, and go in to the little waiting area and .... wait. Relax.
Sometimes I need to do that.
And I need to remember....
"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer." - Leonardo Da Vinci
“Solitude is the soul’s holiday, an opportunity to stop doing for others and to surprise and delight ourselves instead.” — Katrina Kenison
And seek God:
"There is a restlessness that will not find its rest until it finds its rest in God." St. Augustine
And I need to remember this quote: “Not every request requires a ‘yes’.”
[Just writing that feels good.]
Oh, and here’s what I read in E. Stanley Jones’ CHRISTIAN MATURITY yesterday: (I thought it was GREAT.)
To see whether our love is mature love, put “I” in the place of “love” in a portion of Paul’s description of love in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7: 4 I am patient, I am kind. I do not envy, I do not boast, I am not proud. 5 I do not dishonor others, am not self-seeking, am not easily angered, I keep no record of wrongs. 6 I do not delight in evil but rejoice with the truth. 7 I always protect, always trust, always hope, always persevere.
Have a great day.
