Hi King Road Church,
Have you ever experienced something like this?
“Alarm goes off in the morning, don’t want to get out of bed, but just have enough time to dress, brush your teeth and grab some food before heading out the door. Get to work and jump into projects for the day. During coffee and lunch breaks, catch up on the news of the world via your favorite news or sports apps. Get caught late at work because of an unexpected conversation. Hurry home just in time for dinner and putting the kid(s) to bed before heading out for another meeting in the evening. After that is over, you crash at home, vegging on a show, game or sport before mustering up the energy to crawl into bed with the dread that the next day might look similar. You are exhausted, worn out and feel like you don’t have enough time.”
I don’t know about you, but this short story is too similar to some of the days and weeks I have had in my life. Days filled with busyness and stuff, that drain the energy and passion out of me.
In his book, “The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry,” John Mark Comer tackles this reality that many of us face and applies some scriptural and practical pieces of advice to addressing the HURRY in our lives. A few notable sections from the book address the following:
- Trying to do everything and be everywhere is unrealistic and is making us exhausted
- To have meaningful, unhurried spiritual lives, we need to emulate Jesus’ lifestyle.
- By consuming less and sharing more, we’ll have more time for the things that really matter.
