In ministry we can become so consumed with our “ministries.” We become busy, very busy! Then the month passes by and we are like wow, I just did a lot of “stuff.” The deal is this, if you become to busy then you become burned out. (Someone just read that and said, no not me.. You will probably be first!)
You need time for yourself, you need time for you family. Don’t I REPEAT DON’T sacrifice your family on the alter of your job/ministry!
Please slow down, stop running 8 billion programs and running you and your staff crazy with it. Simplify! Stop! Chill! Go on a vacation, turn your phone off, do something different that will cause you to rest…
I went to get a massage a few months ago, and the lady said. Mr. Michael you need to learn to relax, you need to learn to calm down. She said I was one of the hardest people she had ever worked on. She was very series when she said, you have to learn to relax all day long.
This really challenged me that I need to take a deep breath and chill.
Stop trying to do it all, cancel some programs (Simplify)
I could go on and on…
Just remember: If Satan can’t make you bad he will make you BUSY!
