LEARNING TO CARE FOR YOURSELF  4/05/09 

 

HEARDBeing responsible.  Tell me how you do it.  I am here to help you. 

 

[I was the following tonight after hearing the above this AM.  I felt it was relevant.]

 

QUOTE JOYCE MEYERS:

ďI found out that if you donít take care of yourself you are not able to take care of anybody else.  Itís very simple.  I found out something very valuable to me.  I can not give away what I donít have.  If I donít love myself, I canít love you.  If I am not peaceful I canít bring peace into your life.  If I have no joy, how can I give you joy?  If I have no strength and no energy and Iím sick half the time and feel bad, how am I going to feel like praying for you, ministering to you, helping you, or even being nice to you?  ...  You have to spend some time loving yourself.  And that doesnít mean to be in love with yourself.  It means to respect yourself enough to take care of yourself. 

 

I take care of myself.  Youíd better be happy that I do, because I wouldnít be here doing what I am doing tonight, I wouldnít be running all around the world at my age.  I would not.  I would be somewhere finished because I would have burned out a long, long time ago.  I take the time to exercise.  I make an effort to eat right.  I take care of my skin.  I do things to keep myself in a way that I believe brings glory to God and it will keep me strong and healthy.Ē
