MY FEEDING TIME
Monday mornings are my weekly “clean meal.” It’s not my time to study for sermons. It’s not personal devotion time. Monday mornings are opportunities to eat well. I have to feed my soul. If I don’t eat well then I get “hangry.” Scripture, spiritual reflections and guided prayers are all part of this Monday morning practice. It is a chance to make a time that could appear inefficient important and centering. I am adrift without it.
MY CENTERING STUDY
Yes, there are other times in the week when I pray, read and study Scripture, but this selfish hour is mine to steal away before the rest of my busy week takes me. It is a chance to remember who called me and worry less about my call log. It is my hour of ministry before I am asked to minister. This first hour of the week is my opportunity to choose faithfulness and fullness over work, a chance to savor what kind of new creation I am becoming. My hour to be empowered. My small rebellion against expectations to be intentionally inefficient to learn more about who I am in order to be more effective.
Maybe this is you. Maybe it’s a different time or practice. When do you redirect your week? Center yourself? Rediscover your true vocation?
Cheers to intentional inefficiencies.
