…we are so busy scurrying from one thing to another we don’t even have the space to realize our schedules have become overwhelmed. We don’t recognize how our overcommitted lives are harming us.
In the final of three Becker articles I have shared recently, we are challenged to think about our overcrowded schedules and the untruths that sit underneath them. As I am a reformer by nature I find the temptation to over schedule to be a constant battle. Following periods of silence, deep rest or retreat, I am always struck by the violent pace at which I live out my life. It is only when I stop and rest that I notice that much of what I does not line up with what I really believe to be important. (This thought will be further explored in the next post)
