My favorite way to recharge is just to spend some quiet time at home. I am not particularly an outdoors-type person but I do love to take walks or sit outside and soak up a beautiful sunset. When the busyness and noise of life crowds in, it’s so nice to come home to a place of solitude and peace to recharge and rewind. I love to read too - however, these days I spend way too much time surfing the web. I have learned that I spend a lot of my time doing things like this when I am rewinding and they aren’t necessarily recharging. Do you do that? I end up doing easy things to relax or rewind and they may not be my favorite thing to do but they end up taking up most of my time and aren’t edifying, recharging, learning, inspiring, or helping me grow – TV watching is one of those activities. With the New Year I am resolved to be more aware of how I am spending my time.
I’ve also learned the only way to really recharge comes from a relationship with God. I don’t always turn everything over to Him when I should but I do know where my true strength lies…..
But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint. Isaiah 40:31
When you have the opportunity to recharge do you take the opportunity to do the activities that truly recharge you? If so, what are they?
