Are you busy in ministry? Is it ok to be busy in ministry?
I will admit that there was a time when I didn’t think it was ok to be busy and I’m now rethinking this idea. I think it depends on what we mean when we say “busy.”
Here are some definitions of busy:
My friend Amber doesn’t use the word busy. She substitutes the word busy with productive. For her, busyness means a time of increased productivity.
So, if we think about those definitions and concepts of busy there is really nothing wrong with being fully engaged, productive, diligent, and active. Jesus was all of those things. He was active in the work God gave Him. He was focused. There isn’t anything wrong with having seasons where there is a lot to do. Even seasons where you might have to make adjustments for the short term...
There is a trend within the culture that drives me crazy. It keeps us from growing spiritually, disconnects us from the world around us, and tarnishes our legacy. Any guess what it is?
In this episode, you'll learn about this trend and what you can do to see if it has seeped into your culture.
It didn't take long before feeling the pull to create healthy rhythms and boundaries. Even though I worked in the church, the culture was very similar to the world...keep going, keep doing...move from one busy season to the next. I wanted and needed something different! In today's episode, as I reflect on my journey, I share 4 things I wish I knew earlier.
