Celebrating Empty Buckets

By Brenda Jank

Run Hard. Rest Well.® is not against people working hard or being tired.
We celebrate empty buckets!
Do you?
As God’s people, should be tired at the end of the day, at the end of a week.
We have been called to work – every single one of us!
When our buckets becomes low, it means we have been faithfully utilizing our time and energy to pour our best into people, projects, plans, and Kingdom-first priorities.
RHRW is also passionate about full and overflowing buckets!
We are on a combat mission to wipe out chronic fatigue and we thank God for every single one of you who have joined the ranks!
Chronic levels of fatigue disables, depletes, and destroys.
Worn and weary lead to wounded and wounding.
No one is immune.
God’s remarkable plan for rest, recovery, and bucket-refilling rhythms changes the game.
When we intentionally work from our rest and not simply rest for our work (if and when it is convenient), the Lord does His best work in us and through us.
Does your work contribute to the greater good of society – your skills, your effort, your stamina?
Does your work provide for your family?
Support your family?
Contribute to the success of an organization or a group you serve?
Does your work equip other people to do good work, to heal, to regain hope?
Does your work solve a problem, offer a service, provide a needed commodity that makes things work?
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!
This week, celebrate your empty bucket and your full bucket.
You can’t have one without the other.
Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men …
Colossians 3:23

  1. Bren,

    I read your morning RHRW. That is most certainly true!

    Just a scattered thought on a frayed cuff: “Are you an ulcer giver, or an ulcer getter?”


    • Wow!
      I like that, Pop !
      “Are you an ulcer giver, or an ulcer getter?”
      I am going to include this in our Quick Question list.
      I heard this yesterday.
      Knowledge has a love affair with answers.
      Wisdom has a love affair with questions.
      Can’t wait to see you in 2 days – ! ! !
