Nothing can run on empty forever.
I can always tell when the gauge is getting near “E”.
So why don’t I do something about it before I’m running on fumes?
The empty sleep tank can’t always be helped. The ability to fill the sunshine tank depends on the time of year. And the quiet tank has to be sacrificed at this stage in my life.
But the other tanks?
I can pick up the phone and call a friend to fill the fellowship tank. I can get down on the floor and hug my children to fill the touch tank.
I can pick up my Bible or turn on a CD to refill the spiritual tank. I can throw an apron over my head and stop what I’m doing a moment to pray and refill the peace tank.
So why do I let all of my tanks get so close to empty that I’m just plain running on E all the time?
“Fill ‘er up. With premium, please.”
