For all intents and purposes, I’m a bit type-A.
Case in point, tomorrow my new book (second this year) comes out.
So what I say below comes from a place of empathy, not judgment. There are some people I know, some I work with, who move fast. A bit too fast. And they have a hard time slowing down.
The sticky part here is that people who like to move enjoy moving. It doesn’t feel like you’re missing anything. In fact, it feels like the opposite, like you’re gaining.
I know this well.
What I’ve come to learn in the past few years is the value from slowing down.
I still like to do a lot. But for me, going slower means saying no to a lot more than I used to, so that I can make sure the most important things get a lot of room to breath and grow.
One of those important things is to take a day off, a sabbath.
My new book is a collection of short devotionals designed to help you carve out a weekly time and reflect on God. (And if you’re a regular reader, you’ll recognize a lot of the devotionals have been adapted from here.)
Oh, and it’s just in time for Christmas (plug!).
And, for starting the new year right (another one!).
Comes out tomorrow, I hope you’ll check it out.
