SAVE SOME TIME FOR YOU AND GOD

Our days can be busy and hectic. Hours turn into days and before you know it, you haven't had a minute to slow down, relax and have some quiet time for yourself. It is important to put a little time aside for you. Running around, even caring for others can be physically and emotionally exhausting.

Without spending some quiet time with yourself, it is harder for you to connect with God. Life on earth is filled with demands and distractions. When you can find the time, then take it for yourself. Any time of the day is good. Sit down, exhale and remember God. God will remind you of HIS love and existence for you. You will feel HIS peace. You will become more grounded and rejuvenated. When I want to relax, feel comforted, love and smile, I always gaze lovingly upon Our Lord's Sacred Heart Image. I don't need HIS image in front of me...but I feel when I look at HIM, the rest of the world is blocked out and it is just me and HIM.

I am reminded of HIM and how HE is present through all the minutes of our day. HE is watching and interceding for us in everything. Looking at Jesus' image will always make you feel better. Some people may prefer to just close their eyes and think of God and that is great too! HE is one of the most important people in the world, needless to say, my life! So take some moments for yourself, slow down and get reconnected with God. Let GOD shed HIS love upon you, HIS peace and a knowing that everything will be OK. Whatever our day brings us, God will be there. BUT WE NEED TO MAKE TIME FOR OURSELVES AND GOD! Don't allow life to take control of you, but rather, you take control of life! You will feel so much better!
