Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. – 1 Corinthians 13:4 NIV
Self love includes being patient and kind to ourselves. We sometimes focus so much on taking care of others that we forget to take care of ourselves. Self care is a form of self love.
Sometimes we have to honor that we are out of energy by the end of the day and need to take something off our schedule. The Lord understands that our energy is finite, which means that we need to say “no” to some things.
We take pride in our productivity, but there is a time to work and a time to rest. Even God rested on the seventh day after creating humanity. The Lord rested and declared His work good. We can rest and restore ourselves, too. Amen.
