The laptop that I am writing Remarkablog from each weekday also gives me ample warning when the battery is going to run out of life. The battery icon looses the white color inside of it and when it is empty the computer makes an annoying beep every few seconds. The beeping stops when the screen goes blank.
Each of us needs recharging on a regular basis. The physical, emotional, and spiritual elements that make us who we are gets depleted and gives us warning when they are about to run out.
There is an emptiness about our character that shows up first. Critical, judgmental and impatient words are the annoying noises which come out from us when our batteries are about dry. People have worked without recharging to the point of being so drained that their physical, emotional, and spiritual screen has gone blank.
God knows about our need to recharge and included a recharging day as one of the Ten Commandments.
Exodus 20:9-10 (NLT)
9 You have six days each week for your ordinary work, 10 but the seventh day is a Sabbath day of rest dedicated to the Lord your God. On that day no one in your household may do any work. This includes you, your sons and daughters, your male and female servants, your livestock, and any foreigners living among you.
Get recharged every week by:
^Celebrating one day each week as dedicated to the LORD by intentionally worshiping Him with others.
^Do not do any regular work, but only hobbies or tasks that are enjoyable and refresh you.
^Help someone in need.
What do you do to recharge your physical, emotional and spiritual batteries?
