If you are like us, your fall calendar looks daunting! Dates filling up your schedule quickly can often leave us scrambling for air until we suddenly hit Christmas Break and wonder where the year went.
In an effort to play “the long game” and steward a busy season well, we discuss our plan of attack to keep us fueled through a busy fall and reveal errors we have made in the past and learned from.
You’ll leave this episode with some helpful pointers on not burning out but also the encouragement Scripture gives us to manage all our days well.
- Signs of stress may not be any sort of breakdown, but when we find ourselves in a deficit it can show in our day to day lives, especially in doing the hard work of loving others.
[Psa 127:2] - "It is in vain that you rise up early and go late to rest, eating the bread of anxious toil; for he gives to his beloved sleep."
Keys to Staying Fueled:
[Psa 90:12] - "So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom.
- There's so much good that comes from the meat of Scripture and dependence of prayer. Build it into your daily rhythms.
[Psa 4:8] - "In peace I will both lie down and sleep; for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety."
- Sleep is an act of faith. In it, we trust His hands and His work - not our own.
[Luke 10] - Martha was anxious and too busy by doing "good things."
- Staying fueled can mean saying "no" to things that are good and God-honoring to prioritize the better and best.
- There's just times you need someone to talk to, someone to bear the load with. Say, “yes” to help, to accountability, to community.
