Quiet Your Mind

Do you ever feel as if you’re running in a dozen different directions and not accomplishing anything? I’ve felt this way a lot lately. With numerous writing deadlines approaching, it’s hard to stay focused on what is my most urgent priority.

We all have times in our lives where it feels as if we’re a hamster on a wheel and we can’t slow it down enough to get off.

When you feel yourself getting stressed out with work overload try this:

Take time to rest.

No matter how busy your day is, taking breaks to rest is critical. If you are too frazzled to think, you are probably not going to finish the tasks you need to complete.

Psalm 37:7 says, Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him.

Find time alone to pray and let God speak to you through His word:

Jesus often went off by Himself to pray and speak to the Father. We need to do the same. Find time each day to pray and read God’s word. There is comfort and strength to be found in both.

1 Chronicles 16:11, Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face continually.

Reach out to others:

When you reach out to friends, even if it’s only for a little while, it takes you out of your own problems. Sometimes focusing on someone else’s needs gives you the space necessary to clear your head and prepare to go back to work again.

We are to strengthen each other. By helping others, we actually help ourselves.  

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 says, Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up!  

So, no matter what your facing, remember, you’re human and you need to find the time to recharge with the One who is able to not only strengthen you, but who will also guide you through whatever you are facing.

All the best…
