<? echo $type; ?> Course corrections

Fall has been a whirlwind season so far, packed with people, events, and strategy tweaks. After weeks of running really fast, I decided to take a day by myself to evaluate how I was really doing in my own spiritual journey. I wanted to pay attention to what God was doing in me, not just through me.

I started by thinking back over my spiritual disciplines, reflecting on the time I had spent reading God’s word over the past couple of months. I reviewed how often I spent time praying. Was I doing the kinds of things that fill me up personally? Did I have the right level of accountability in my life in the areas where I needed the most work? It was easy to see where the gaps were in my spiritual life. So, I dragged out my calendar and started blocking out the time I needed each week to make course corrections.

My goal is to live each day with the end in mind. I left that day feeling centered and content in the deepest part of my soul, so glad that I had made this a priority.

How about you? How are you doing these days? Is it time to get quiet and let God do some work inside you too?
