Renew your Mind, Body and Spirit

Do you ever feel depleted spiritually or physically? Many times we go through life racing in many directions, trusting that the condition of our heart is healthy without taking time to renew our mindy, body and spirit. When the warning lights of weariness, restlessness and lack of clarity go on, like those in a car, we refuse to slow down and stop until it’s too late. 

Our calendars run our lives. We lack sleep, physical exercise and eat unhealthy food. Socially, we limit time with enjoyable relationships. Spiritually, we make no time for prayer, worship, reading the Bible or serving others. Then, we break down at the sidelines…worn out, not able to go the distance.
