Playing Sharks and Minnows at the #UrbanEagles U12 Clinic last night. Way to stay in the game @shaksteve

So interesting. In the last moments of His life, Jesus chose to sing with His disciples after the last supper. In this scenario, what song would you sing with your community?

Pause.

Have you ever felt completely overwhelmed with work that it actually takes minutes to remember where you are mentally and to respond to anybody about anything? Yeah that’s where I was late Tuesday afternoon.

(And you’re lying to yourself if you say you’ve never been to that point…)

It took a silent car ride for me to come to a realization that I filled my time with obligations, activities, and tasks to fill up my brain to the point where I didn’t know what to do next. So I went to the coffee shop down the street and just sat down at the table in silence…and just became still. … Eventually I opened up my bible and read too and honestly the combination of the two was really what I needed. Who knew that the best way to clear the head and calm the body was God and stillness?! Well I actually did but I think that’s where the problem lies, I don’t remain still for long and more often that I care to admit, I lose focus from God. If you’re reading this, I highly encourage you to drop whatever you’re doing right now and just pause. Be still. I’m sure whatever is on your plate right now is important. But can’t it wait 20 minutes? Trust me, when you center back and re-focus back to the creator and provider in and of all our lives. Everything seems to be a little but more manageable because you regain your sense of calling and gifting. My newest newsletter is coming out soon! Don’t miss out.
