I’m nearly the stage of overload. Last week I had the Society of Vineyard Scholars (SVS). This week I’m teaching on pneumatology at YWAM Northwoods. We’re in the process of packing our house and getting ready to move. Frankly, I can’t wait until the fall… and it’s not even summer yet! So I am aware that I’m going to need to take a day off next week, maybe two. And by “take off,” I mean… completely remove myself from any “work.”

Mark Kate Morse (George Fox Evangelical Seminary) spoke at SVS and said:

“If you can’t take a sabbath you cannot distinguish God from your own activity.”

Whoa. I want to keep a kingdom perspective that’s aware of (and looking for) the work of the Father, so I can bless it and participate in it. So there’s some pain that comes with an awfully terrible (busy!) schedule.

Looking forward to rest…
