Is Your Tank Running Low?
March 08, 2013

Running On Empty
Salt & Light Volume X, Issue 11 by D. Scott Prindle


"Elijah was a man just like us..." (James 5:17)

Elijah had days when he just wanted to die...

"It's enough! Now Lord take my life..." (1 Kings 19:4)


We have frequent business meetings requiring travel from our home in the Tetons.

One time when we knew our fuel gauge was moving towards empty, we decided to spend an extra day to soak in a natural hot spring, then drive home the next day.

Relaxing in the crystal clear pools under blue sky surrounded by God's beautiful creation was refreshing, relaxing, and refueled our tanks.

Your Fuel Gauge
Like Elijah, times of intense activity test the limits of your humanity, and you burn a lot of fuel.

The fuel gauge warns you when your tank is getting low. The low fuel alarm sounds like this:

  • You Depreciate Yourself
  • You Underrate Your Results
  • You Exaggerate Your Problems
  • You Give Up On Your Dreams
  • You Relapse Towards Destructive Habits

When your tank is getting low, take some of these steps to refuel:

If Elijah needed to refuel, we're thinking we might too!

Keep your tank full.

What about you? Please share with us, and for others, some ways you have found to refuel.
