Fall Busyness

FallThe fall season is upon us and for most of us in the church that means the programs ramp up and the busyness begins.

I talk to people all the time who tell me how busy they are. Pastor’s I meet with tell me about all they are doing. Lay people talk about why they can’t serve in various roles because they have so much happening.

I am writing this article on Wednesday morning when it is due at noon because I haven’t yet had time to write it until now!

Doing ministry is a good thing. Giving ourselves to the work of making disciples of Jesus Christ for transformation of the word is vital as we seek to follow the God of grace and love. But the balance that enables rest as well as busyness is crucial both for our physical and spiritual wellbeing and the effectiveness of our work.

So…right now….right in this moment….…pause with me………………take a breath……….breathe in God’s Spirit……………….allow God to tell you how much God loves you………………how pleased God is with you, not because of what you do or what you have accomplished today, but simply because of who you are.

Let that sink into your soul right now, in this moment.

Peace
Bill
