The System is Down!
There are not much work these days and people still has the so called 'holiday hang-over'! Plus the fact that it's weekend again... no body is in the mood to work any more!
Yet, despite of the less stress week, people seems restless and tired.
They walk as if they are racing. They talk in high pitch. Most were so focused on their computers as if they are answering some mathematical equation...
Sadly, we were used to being in motion at all times that we tend to forget to pause for a while. Even when there are opportunity to sit back and relax, we chose to keep ourselves busy.
From the time we wake up, do our daily morning routine, prepare breakfast, call your parents, go to office, check the emails, update status, do our work, call some friends, pay the bills, submit the deliverables, travel back home, prepare the dinner, do the laundry, watch the late night news, take a shower and just before falling asleep, we pray, " Lord, I'm so tired... " and the next thing we hear is the alarm clock reminding us to start it all over again...
Is this the way you want live your life?
We were created to do good things and God wants us to enjoy while doing it!
As I always say, we are working to live and not living to work...
Do not wait for your system to shut down... you can pause for a while.
Lean back and enjoy the comfort of your swivel chair, sip a coffee, eat some chips, listen to music, look at the place around you... smile.
And most importantly, pray and come to God... and without a doubt, you'll be recharged.
The apostles gathered around Jesus and reported to him all they had done and taught. Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest" (Mark 6:30-31 NIV).
