Running shoes in the fridge = the ultimate multi-tasking fail; what is happening?
Our brains are inundated with to do lists, something is always "pressing". Can't we, if only for a moment, go back to the days of pre-technology when scheduling appointments for your own down time wasn't a thing?
Let's talk fatigue: specifically spiritual fatigue "Spiritual exhaustion is never the result of sin, but of service. Whether or not you experience exhaustion will depend on where you get your supplies." Oswald Chambers
Fatigue & burn out is a sign that we need to reconnect to our Source of strength. Our mind, body and soul have become dog-tired and the biggest clue: joyless.
The Psalm 46:10 antidote is to "be still", a simple reminder that He is God and we are not. Stop talking, stop moving, stop mentally processing and take a rest. Yes, rest. Jesus retreated to spend time in prayer and find solitude. "But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed." Luke 5:16
Being still is spending time away from our out of control pace of life for the purpose of resuscitating ourselves in His presence.
The most productivity you'll experience is making time to become still.
