When You Run Out of Steam

Tired?  I know the feeling.

Exhaustion is a fact of life.  We all know it, and we don't love it - but it happens.

What happens when you get exhausted?  Well, I know that I make mistakes, get cranky, and become apathetic.  I know that there are a few others, but I'm too tired to think of them right now.  Oh yea, I forget stuff.  Did I say that already?

Isaiah 40:28-29 “He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and to him who has no might he increases strength.”

What to do with exhaustion. 

#1 - Get rest.  Stop and take a nap.  Stop and get some sleep.  Stop and just wind down. 

#2 - Pay attention. OSA-related traffic accidents are estimated to cost between $12 billion and $39 billion per year (not including medical costs) OSA-related workplace accidents cost the economy between $7 and 22 billion per year.  

#3 - Recharge your batteries.  Take a day off or even a week.  During that time relax and spend some time with God #1 and then spend some time with family and friends.  You will be surprised at the long-term benefit of this.  

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, I am tired, and I need your help.  AMEN
