Why You Don’t Have to Do All the Things

"The more you do, the more worth you have.” This is a common message we never audibly hear, but it’s frequently implied by others—including by family members, friends, and church leaders. Not because they aren’t Christians per se or because they don’t truly care about you. But because they’ve bought the cultural lie that is stated above—“the more you do, the more worth you have.” We mistakenly believe that we will find strength in doing more—finding a side hustle, starting a hobby, setting new goals for ourselves, etc.

2020 Is Not About 2019

I hope this post won’t sound like a lecture. Rather, I hope it will give you the encouragement you need to start the new year with peace. Because you don’t need to start 2020 feeling discouraged, hopeless, or ashamed.

Re-Aligning Our Priorities to Pursue Godliness

We can blame our sin nature or our culture, or we can take responsibility for our actions and realize that we often don’t try to change our priorities. Maybe the reason we don’t have time to read our Bibles, pray, go to church, fellowship, or serve others is because we aren’t making time for those activities. To be honest, I usually don’t make time for these activities either.

Putting on Christ in 2018

There are so many things I could be doing better. New Year’s resolutions can be depressing because they remind us how flawed we are. If I really think about it, I could come up with dozens of ways to be a better Christian. Instead, I try to ignore my flaws and sins but rarely put in the effort to do better.

Time Management Trouble

Your time, whether spent well or poorly, is a sunk cost. Every moment of the past is a sunk cost. We sometimes pay the price for wasting time—even when we don’t mean to waste it.

Just Doing It

Get rid of the trash in your life that’s toppling over and spilling out and hurting your relationship with God. It’s not complicated. It’s very simple.
