TIME FOR A CHANGE
My life for way too long has been wrapped around constant ministry, managing my pain, and looking for any chance possible to spend with family. I rarely if ever watch one minute of television or do anything just to relax. Tonight, I’m going to soak in the tub, watch recorded voice episodes, go to sleep and get up whenever my body chooses. Then, tomorrow I will catch a few fish or do something else I will enjoy weather permitting.
I feel like I just won the lottery and boarded a free cruise ship. Honestly, sometimes you just have to hijack your life back from the devil. There must be scheduled down time to laugh, live, and not be consumed with the next too serious task. When we don’t do this for ourselves it’s nobody’s fault but our own.
If you’re miserable do something about it. If your life’s insanity keeps repeating itself change the way you approach life. I can promise you I’ve decided to get back to a balanced approach of Faith, Family, & Fun. I’ve fought all week towards this life regrouping time.
Life is too short to work all the time and chase what for many is the American Nightmare. So, tonight I’m stepping off that miserable bandwagon. I’ve got too much to enjoy sitting right in front of me. Too often I’m the only one that puts unrealistic expectations on my perfectionist self.
I’m 4 days away from turning 44. It’s time for me to figure out how to live life to its fullest. How to take time to smell the roses, visit my own family, and continue to do all I can to leave this world a better place. I will no longer be a slave to pure busyness and misery. This is the end of my passionate, heartfelt rant to myself. I pray this ignites a change in someone else as well who desperately needs it. God help us all to experience the fuller life you desire for us all in Christ.
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the fullest.” (John 10:10)
