Monday Morning with Russ

On Being Busy…

A good friend of mine published a blog post this morning and the title is: “If the Devil can’t make you bad, he will make you Busy.” If you want to read his blog, CLICK HERE

This caught my attention this morning as I looked at my calendar for the day and the week, as I began to lay out my day today, and as I realized that I would never get done all the things that I want to get done. I was feeling a little overwhelmed with it all, then I read his blog, and I was not only overwhelmed, but I was discouraged!

In Jim’s blog, he says this:

“Have you ever seen the road sign that simply says, “Speed Kills.” Of course, it’s referring to driving too fast, but I’m convinced that there are also very poor consequences of living an overcrowded and constantly exhausting life.”

I’m overwhelmed and discouraged not because this is news to me. It’s because this is a trap I constantly fall in, and it’s a very familiar feeling and familiar territory.

So my message to you today is this:

*Read the blog from Jim

*Figure out what “Rest, Refresh, Restore, and Recreation” mean to to.


This isn’t the end. The battle isn’t over.

It’s simply time to put things in order and look for that rhythm that has been so elusive in your life.
