Ever pushed yourself to reach ambitious goals? It’s difficult finding the balance between pursuing a dream and realistically counting the cost. And not just the financial cost. But the effects on our families, work performance, relationships, health, and sanity.

If you don’t take the time to make consistent deposits, you’ll find yourself overdrawn.

Which is where I find myself.

I adjusted my daily routines to account for having the family around the house this summer. It seems I didn’t adjust enough and my chronic fatigue syndrome is flaring up again. I’ve tried pushing through with a slower but steady pace. It feels like I’m slogging through mud and falling further behind. After another week of trying to hold it together, I made the reluctant decision to cut back on blogging (and a few other things) for the sake of my health and family.

I just didn’t think taking a break would break my heart.

Why did I tear up when typing that last sentence? Because I’ve enjoyed sharing my heart with all of you and hopefully passing along a little encouragement.

So, while my journey has detoured to the shop for an overhaul, I’m still cheering you on. As soon as I’m able, I’ll be back.

What about you? Have you ever had to take a break from something you loved?

    >This week I've found myself so engrossed in tweeter and blogging that I've forgotton appointments and neglected things I was supposed to be doing. The Lord reminded me in Romans 8:1-20 that when I set my mind on the flesh death occurs, but when I set my mind on the Spirit, I have life and peace. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ has made me free. When I'm in Christ old things have passed away and in His presence is fullness of joy and times of refreshing. Hallelujah!
