STOP AND THINK – You can’t pour out if you haven’t been filled up. (Kary Oberbrunner, author and motivational speaker)

Do you ever feel empty? Someone close needs help or asks for advice, and you feel like you just don’t have anything to give? That’s why it is so important that we take time to read, to study, to pray, to spend time in activities that refresh and restore, and to encourage one another. You can’t be of help to anyone else unless you take care of yourself.

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24)
