We are invited daily into opportunities to trust God’s leading. Sometimes those opportunities are big, like choosing a college or leaving behind a job and other times they seem small, like helping someone to the car with their groceries and offering to pray for them before they drive away (which isn’t small by the way).
As we talk with and coach leaders in missional living, one of the main hindrances is busyness. How can I live on mission when I’m already so busy? Can I really fit it into my schedule? Maybe it will be easier when things are less busy.
Busy. We’re all busy. You won’t find many people who deny this. With so much going on, in and around us, it’s a wonder we find time to even be with our families, let alone make time to make disciples!
We Americans are the busiest people I know. We get up early, work hard, come home and recreate even harder, until we literally fall into bed, exhausted, at the end of each night. As we drift off to sleep, we dream of waking up and doing it all over again.
