All that I have I lay before
With my pride on the floor
Cause to you less is more*
New song last week, good timing too as it’s been so busy! I should explain. I’m privileged in that I do both kids and youth ministry, it’s awesome because I get to work with young people when they are still in primary school, I get to watch my youth grow up, I know the struggles they’ve been through, and I can walk alongside them all the way. But it often means I’m pulled in different directions.
Friday night kids group, in-church worksheets, family night, hockey coaching, Uprise youth service, the Glow Ball, ministry conferences, BMAC with the Aspire kids, mentoring days, supervision, serving in Community Ministries.
I am busy, I know I’m busy, I love being busy, but when is it more than it needs to be?
To the best of my ability I’m practicing humility
I guess where I’m heading is, make sure what you’re doing isn’t about you! That the ministry or service you’re involved with, as much as it can consume your life, involves self-care; prayer, time in the word, fellowship with other believers, and the odd bubble bath!
Wherever you are in your journey, make sure the relationship you have with God is the best it can be. Less of you….more of God.
