Matthew 6:6

Take time off or get away to become refreshed again. Jesus and many other leaders pulled away to spend time in prayer and find solitude. The Bible tells us in Matthew 6:6 “But you, when you pray, go into your inner room, close your door and pray to your Father who is in secret, and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you.”

Staying Connected

Staying connected to a community is vital for long-term progress. When we recover from a tough time, we want to go into isolation. There is nothing wrong with this, but it can stretch into months. Ask a friend to keep you accountable and find a person to have fun with. Go to a park,  try a new resturant, see the ocean, and  take a laugh break!

Refocus

Turn to God. Life can cloud our vision, and God can be pushed to the back of our priorities, and to-do lists. Work to refocus on what is important: “In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success,” Proverbs 3:6 states.

Think on Good Things

Negative thinking will wear you out. Think on good things. Isaiah 53: “Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy]. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.”

Well-Being

Don’t forget to take care of Your body and mind. You need to eat well, and get rest as this only compounds stress, or spiritual fatigue. The Bible instructs us to take care of our bodies in Romans 12:2. “And so, dear brothers and sisters, I plead with you to give your bodies to God because of all He has done for you. Let them be a living and holy sacrifice—the kind he will find acceptable. This is truly the way to worship God.”

Looking for true peace? Whatever you’re going through, God knows—and cares. Find real hope today.
