The Confident Woman DevotionalTaking care of yourself is the theme for today. As women, we seem to run our lives ragged, going from home to activities to work to a million other things we “need” to do.

Even if we accept Christ into our lives, it doesn’t mean we will have time for Him or our lives will get easier. The feeling that we need to take care of everyone doesn’t go away.

But we need to “do right in the eyes of the Lord,” as it is said in 1Kings 15 and this means taking care of ourselves to bring balance back into our lives. I am not saying be totally selfish, but how can a sick mom take care of her kids, her husband and the house, when she can barely stand up? This also goes for the mental aspect, too. Sometimes we need to just get away to bring back the equilibrium.

As Joyce says, “you must take care of yourself in order to take care of anyone else.”
