Finding a New Rhythm

I haven’t been posting with the same regularity and rhythm of late.  The primary reason is that my energy, beyond my ongoing counseling practice with my clients, has been largely devoted to my new role as an adjunct faculty member of the Counseling Department at Liberty University Online.  This week is mid-term week in my first eight-week course, Integration of Psychology, Theology, and Spirituality.  In two weeks I will add a second course to my instruction load, Counseling Adolescents.  So far, the experience has been exciting, challenging, and deeply fulfilling to the teacher/mentor in me that has probably been more dormant within me than he would like.  While I am finding the discipline and system of how to effectively handle one course, and I trust God will give me the grace to do the same with two concurrent courses, I am prayerfully examining my self, my motivations, my time, my priorities, and my attitudes to ensure I live with healthy balance in light of these new, additional responsibilities.  I would be grateful for your prayers in this regard.

And here are the rich words of wisdom I heard from God this morning, as I paused to seek fresh life from Him in the book of Proverbs (NCV):

“The wise say very little, and those with understanding stay calm.”  (17:27)

“What you say can mean life or death.  Those who speak with care will be rewarded.”  (18:21)

“People’s own foolishness ruins their lives, but in their minds they blame the LORD.”  (19:3)

“Being kind to the poor is like lending to the LORD; he will reward you for what you have done.  (19:17)

“Correct your children while there is still hope; do not let them destroy themselves.”  (19:18)


With Hope, Life, and Strength in Him,

Roger
