I just came out of a 2 week run of back-2-back retreats, and all the planning that’s involved with those. it was crazy. by time my sunday night drive home came after Velocity i was literally trying to keep my eyes open. i had even skipped a few days of my bible reading plan due to the busyness.
all that to say that the past 2 days have been amazing. summed up in one word: rest.
i am a podcast junkie as of late, and the one i am loving is Mark Driscoll’s weekly message to Mars Hill Church in Seattle. during my run yesterday, i listened to his latest talk. he said one phrase that caught my attention –
“you have no business enjoying restful solitude unless you have poured yourself out in ministry.”
“If Satan can’t make you sin, he’ll keep you busy. Not doing bad things, but neglecting first things.”
