I went into the laundry room to dry a load of clothes. Before I started the dryer up, I decided to check the lint filter. To my surprise, it has not been cleaned in a while. The lint was very thick and fuzzy. When the filter is dirty it makes the dryer work harder, resulting in a burned out dryer. This can present a fire hazard.
Which brings me to myself; this past weekend I felt like I was going to have a break down. I have been slammed with task, deadlines, laundry, work, bills, projects, etc… People would call or text me, not with a “Hey how are you doing?” but “Can you?” “Will you”?? “Why not”? I felt just like that dryer; over worked and over heated. No matter how busy I explained to others that I was; they still found a way to add more. If only they took a second to do a lint check. They would have known that I was about to burn out. The Bible teaches us not to be people pleasers. I’m working on balance and learning not to be a “yes” person. One thing I do know; is to ask for wisdom and call on Jesus when I’m in need of rest!
Verse of Meditation: Matthew 11:28 (KJV). Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
