Rhythm and Routines

The start of a new school term always reminds me of the seasons of our lives. As we crawl our way to the end of a term we desperately seek a break from the routine and rush of appointments, commitments and agendas. Even a week break can help us to catch our breath and to regain the energy we need to start all over again.

But this is not just true of school terms - it is also true for other aspects of life. We need routine and rhythm to help us establish a sense of order, but it is also good to pause from these for a moment. This enables us to reflect on whether our routines are helping us or hindering us.

So, when last did you reflect on the rhythm of your life? Are you and I involved in things that energise us or are our diaries filled with commitments that drain us? Perhaps it’s time to push pause again. Just thinking?!

Daniel 2:21 - He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.

Living in Grace,
