Church, we have a problem! We are experiencing a crisis of epic proportions, and it centers around our values. Do we know what is important to us and prioritize those needs in our daily lives? I cringe when I log into social media and see a leader, obviously worn, do another event. I hurt when I hear leaders say the magnitude of work they have to do, while they continue to take on additional responsibilities they don’t have time for.
This week, I was honored to interview Enrique Pascal to discuss a topic he and his wife know well: relationships. There were so many points of wisdom to glean from, but he challenged us to take one and apply it. He mentioned to us that it’s essential for couples to learn how to listen to their coach, God.
Have you ever tried to charge your phone, but forgot to plug it in? When you needed to connect the most, maybe to pass the time on a long trip or during a break, your battery losses power and eventually your phone will shut down. Recently, I found my battery low and looked down to see, “Hey, I didn’t connect it!” My phone was connected to the cord but my cord wasn’t connected to the outlet. No wonder it continued to stay the same!
It’s another week and here I am again. Discussing a topic that I sure didn’t plan. Last week we discussed the significance of Godly sisterhood. It’s time to peel back more layers. At the core of Godly sisterhood is relationship. How can someone be your “sister” and you know nothing about them?
Stress! It seems to be everywhere. We live in a high-paced, high-stress culture that celebrates burnout and scorns resting. Recently I was having a conversation with an employee about the planning I have done around my life. I don’t do stress or stressful situations well, so I have to be mindful of how I am using my time.
