Reset



Kinwomen Feb 2019 reset

The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.

Rumi

I was sitting with a colleague yesterday, and she was telling  me that her email box, was sending her messages, “Warning, Warning, your email box is blocked because it has too many messages.”
 
I smiled because it felt like my mind right at that present moment. Warning alarms were telling me it was time to reset. 
 
I said to her quietly, “First of all you need to arrange your email box in such a way that all the emails with attachments come to the top of your inbox. Secondly, you need to delete all of the emails.” 
 
“Thirdly, turn your computer off and restart it again.”
 
Our hearts, lives and especially minds can get full of extra attachments, and we need to find a way to reboot, to begin again.
 
More than our computers need a reset, so do our hearts and lives.
Lamentations 3: 22 reminds us:
 
The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
 
This long weekend, why don’t you take the time to reset and find space to recalibrate what you are carrying into 2019?
