Your Energy Matters… Want to Boost It?

Your Energy Matters



Tonight I have the privilege of being on a live conference call with Crystal Paine and Mary Ellen Bream. We will be talking about fighting fatigue and boosting energy. I thought this would be a good week to talk about energy and share a few resources with you.

I remember the day I realized God cares about my energy level. It was a liberating moment because up until then I believed that to devote time and effort into feeling better was selfish. Boy was I sadly mistaken. Do you realize that God actually commands us to keep ourselves fueled and aflame? Yep. He does.


We can’t serve Him and others if we are constantly worn down, worn out, and overwhelmed. Being a good steward of our energy is necessary if we want to be good stewards of our time, opportunities, and resources while on this earth. Of course God cares about our energy levels!

My husband hurt his back in high school while lifting weights. He now has to regularly exercise his back with stretching and strengthening exercises to prevent it from going out. Sometimes he gets really busy and thinks, “I don’t have time to do my back exercises.” He inevitably ends up in bed for two or three days, unable to move at all! So much for trying to cut corners!

You see, sometimes we think certain things are luxuries when really they are necessities. (And yes, it works the other way around too! :) ) For my husband, exercise isn’t a luxury, it is a necessity.

How does that apply to you, you ask? Well whether you are a stay at home mom, a working mom, in ministry, retired, or wherever you are in life, God has prepared good works for you to do. But here’s the thing: we can’t fulfill our purposes if we aren’t stewarding and maximizing our energy levels. {That is coming from a naturally low-energy person, who has learned husband isn’t the only one who needs to look after his weak areas!}

Two years ago, I wrote a common sense, practical, doable plan to boosting energy. If you haven’t grabbed a copy of my eBook, Energy Explosion: A 7 Day Guide to Jumpstart Your Energy, now is a great time to get it because For the next two days it is only $.99 on Kindle!


Tomorrow, I’m going to share with you my 12 Minute Energy Break to try the next time you are feeling wiped out. In the meantime, you can check out these resources by my friends Crystal and Mary Ellen:

  1. Great points. I’m facing this now with dealing with my weight. I HAVE to take time to take care of myself, but I DON’T have to turn it into an idol in my life. There’s a lot of gray area there, it’s not a black and white issue. But it IS important!
