Less Hustle, More Jesus

Devotional

Take Care of You


When it comes to self-care, you’ve probably heard some version of “No one can pour from an empty cup.” And yet the world would have you believe that you can and somehow should! Less sleep, more caffeine, more gadgets to create more time, more stuff packed into fewer hours – “You’ve got this,” right? Well, guess what? You don’t have to get this! Not by pushing yourself past your healthy, God-given boundaries. You don’t have to get this because He’s got this. When you reach the point of burnout, why not confess that soul-draining self-sufficiency? Just surrender. Lay it all out and ask the Lord how you should simplify – what to let go of and what to hold onto. Make time to care for one of His most precious creations: you!


Prayer:


Lord, I know I can’t do it all, and I’m sorry for the times when I try. Help me to honor You by taking care of me. Amen.
