Let’s talk about self-care. It can be a difficult subject, but I think it’s important to approach from a spiritual perspective – because how can we expect to do our best for God if we’re not taking care of ourselves? How can we give to others if we’re running on empty? We find an example of this in Exodus 18. God used Moses to deliver the Israelites out of slavery in Egypt. Moses becomes the leader over millions of people, and he proves himself to be a willing leader. But he’s exhausted. “When Moses’ father-in-law saw all that Moses was…

“The LORD shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” (Psalm 121:8 in the King James Version of the Bible)

God has amazing eyesight! Even when we are alone, we are never out of His sight. Think of it! We are never truly lost for we are at all times under His watchful eye. We may be emotionally and physically exhausted, and unable to see the dangers ahead, but God is always on guard.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Your presence goes before me, beside me and behind me. Thank you for Your great care for me!
