Some days I need a mid-day reset button for my life. Maybe I’ve lost perspective or my priorities are out of balance. Or maybe it’s just been a rough day.
In any event, I end up in a place where I need to reset my life. I need to take a few minutes to focus on God and on his purposes. To talk with him about what’s going on.
It was a Suggestion
So, at Pastor Kevin O’Dea’s suggestion, I have scheduled my reset. Yep…just like a computer backup. I have an entry on my Google Calendar. I get an email and a text message every day about 1:00 PM. That’s my cue to take a few minutes for prayer.
Usually, I just get up from my desk and take a walk around the building. Maybe four or five minutes. Just to pray. That’s all.
And I can tell you this, it makes a difference. It helps me. Sure, there are more things that I could do. But this is something I am doing.
And something I am doing is more effective than something I could do but am not.
How about you?
Could you schedule a few minutes in the middle of your day to reset?
Why not schedule it now?
