Self-centered “me time”

It is often said that we all need something called “me time”…but do we?

Nothing against treating yourself to a night out or getting a foot massage, what I’m getting at is our attitudes and where our focus is as we get the chance to take a break.

While we certainly need to take care of ourselves, there is simply no circumstance we can possibly be in that we should be living our lives in a self-centered way. Instead of having “me time” with the the attitude of “I deserve this”, let’s try having “God time”, in His presence thanking Him for what He has blessed us with.

When our focus is shifted away from ourselves and onto Christ it makes every minute so much more valuable! Having that five-minute coffee break with gratitude is going to be much more special, and even beneficial, than if you have the attitude of “no one touch me till I’m done”.

It is sooo easy and quite common to live in a self-centered way. It is a constant battle, but it is a battle worth fighting. When our focus is taken away from ourselves–that is where we find peace, hope, joy, and so many other blessings that can’t be found in any other way.

Choose to have “God time” instead of “me time”…you’ll be glad you did!
