It’s been a great long week for you. Practice, more practice, meetings, rehearsal, sound check and preparation.
Two quick things you should remember and take hold of.
Rest – There is a reason God created a Sabbath day. Your brain, your heart and your spirit need the time. It doesn’t mean you need to take long naps and bathe in the sun all day…but taking a quiet walk might not hurt.
If you work at a church…take your day/s off very seriously. Hang with your family or find a hobby. Do some housework or pull some weeds (not too fast now J ). You need the reset button and time to find perspective in life. If all you ever do is work…you might miss the blessings God has for you that day.
Reflection – Once you have had a chance to rest…take a little bit to reflect on many things. How did you feel about the weekend or service? Was there something you could have done to be more prepared or something that just didn’t work? Take time to reflect on life and leadership…direction and possibilities ahead.
“Only when the clamor of the outside world is silenced will you be able to hear the deeper vibration. Listen carefully.” – Sarah Ban Breathnach
I can’t stress how important these two things are each week. Find time in your schedule.
After you have been able to gain some perspective and rest…you will be ready for the next week.
Peace and Love. Jesse
