Busted Overflow


Some days I wake up tired. I don’t know about you, but for the most part, I am usually going nonstop. We run from one activity to the next, rarely stopping to get a breather. We take the fast lane on the road, we want the shortest line at the store, we eat our food on the go, we sleep less and we go more. When we are running on empty, our tempers tend to flare, our perspectives get skewed, and our nerves are stretched so thin that they are screaming. All of that means that our potential overflow just doesn’t make it over the hump. When our overflow is busted, we need to take the time to stop.  Philippians‬ ‭1:9‬ ‭NLT‬‬ “I pray that your love will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.” ‭‭ Growing in knowledge and understanding means that we have to stop; stop at least long enough to spend some quality time with the Lord. We each have the potential to be a positive influence on those we come into contact with. Being courteous, kind and generous is part of the fruit basket of love that we are supposed to be showing and sharing. Even out on the open road, when we are all indistinguishable from one another, our actions are important. Our actions speak loudly about our overflow potential. Our overflow, our more than enough, is directly related to the time we invest in our relationship with Jesus. When we know and recognize that our overflow is busted, yet we find ourselves still running, we need to stop. Do more and be more by stopping. Stopping and spending a quiet moment with Jesus gets our overflow pumping again. Stop and spend some time with Jesus.
