Practicing What I Preach
I find myself this morning very aware of the challenge to practice what I preach. I regularly encourage my clients and online followers to make it a priority to take good care of themselves, and live with such a balance in life that this flows naturally in one’s daily rhythm. I also challenge folks to act on conviction, rather than impulse, and this often means doing what you don’t feel like doing at the moment. And I am now feeling under the weather with serious chest congestion, while facing a major business transition that needs considerable attention and effort. Rest? Work? Rest? Work?
I think I’ll stop for a few minutes of focused prayer-rest, seeking God’s direction on how to face today. I am tempted to try to figure out how to face the week, but I know I really can only face today. And trying to tackle the whole week today will probably just tire me out anyway.
If you are interested in more thoughts along these lines, I recommend reading John Eldredge’s latest book, “Walking with God.”
