Lets start with me apologizing for not posting in a while.
As the semester draws nears end, it is getting harder and harder to ignore the fact that I am not as disciplined as I need to be. The excitement has worn off of school and ministry and even this blog and now whether I like it or not it has become a grind. The assignments I've been putting off, the debts I've ignored, the frantic lifestyle of not eating or sleeping enough...all these things are catching up. I know I only have three more weeks and then a nice long relaxing vacation. I could just grit my teeth until then and then crash. But I dont want to live like that. I dont want to live from vacation to vacation. I want to redeem the time I live in. It's just such a struggle to find that balance between plunging into ministry and work and school and yet not burning out. Which is why I know I need to be more focused, more disciplined. I can't tell you how much this grates against my nature but I am starting to see the need for it. So now that I realize I need more discipline in my life I must start asking questions. What is my goal? Is that goal in line with God's will? What things must I give up to pursue this goal? What can I do today to take steps toward that goal?
I want to "run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air; but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified." 1 Cor 9:26-10:1
please pray for my journey
and ask yourself where yours is leading
by His grace, for His glory
