When You Run Out of Steam
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
