“Always go the extra mile; it’s never crowded."  

If someone asks you to go one mile, how many of us choose to go two miles? When the boss gives an assignment, how many of us add to the quality of what is expected? When sharing with others, is it just to repay kindness for kindness or do we go beyond what was extended to us? Most people leave the kitchen when it’s time to do the dishes. Going the extra mile may mean you do the journey alone. Great achievements come from intense and intentional focus. Stay the course.

Rest 

If you're feeling compelled to do so much that you are physically worn out, you may be driven instead of led. Remember, you have to come apart from a busy routine before you come apart yourself. You have to get away from everything before you come apart physically, mentally, and emotionally. Give yourself time to get a good night's sleep. 

It is tempting to do everything that everybody else is doing, be involved in everything, know everything, hear everything, and be everywhere, but it isn't God's best for you. Be willing to separate yourself from the compulsive activity before you come apart at the seams! Spend time with God, and ask Him to give order to your day. 

And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness, quietness and confidence for ever. (Isaiah 32:17 ASV)

Recovering 

Recovering from pain or disappointment of any kind is not something that just happens to some people and not to others. It is a decision! You make a decision to let go and move on. You learn from your mistakes. You gather up the fragments of your life and give them to Jesus, and He will make sure that nothing is wasted (see John 6:12). You refuse to think about what you have lost; instead, you inventory what you have left and begin using it with a thankful heart. 

In Christ, not only can you recover, but you can also be used to help other people recover. Be a living example of a thankful person who always recovers from setbacks no matter how difficult or frequent they are. Don’t ever say, “I just cannot go on.” Instead, say, “I can do whatever I need to do through Christ. I will never quit, because God is on my side.” 

“to grant to those who mourn in Zion— to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.” 
Isaiah 61:3 ESV
