Hello world!

I am new to this whole “blogosphere” thing, so hopefully this works.

I have wanted to blog for awhile now, but have never seemed to find the time to do it.  What got me to do it today?  I was asked by Dar.  So now I find another good reason to start writing, reading and responding.  Time is somewhat of an issue with me right now.  I am trying to juggle two ministries and a job.  I have never been in a situation like this before and I am finding myself drained yet excited.  For the past few months I have been trying to get used to getting up at 5am/4am and be a somewhat productive person throughout the day into ministry activities at night.  I find that I am still a zombie by 10pm, but doing better…I no longer need an afternoon nap.

While reading Mobilized Weakness by Mark Bair, the realization that I am on the edge of being burnt out smacked me in the face.  I brought this realization up in cell group.  Before I read that, I guess I hadn’t really thought about it, I would just get really stressed, deal with it and get over it.  No conclusions were ever made.  But after reading that, I saw the trap that Satan was setting up for me.  He wanted to see is I was going to rely on God and prioritze, or rely on myself and cave in.  This is when I decided to take action and get into prayer more often about this.  I am still in the process of prayer and adjustment.  Most of the time I am happy and convicted but there are still moments (especially during WORD or in LTC) when things seem so chaotic and like my brain is going to explode from stress.

I know that there are a lot of people out there that are just as busy if not more than I (being at home only one night a week, maybe two if REALLY lucky).  It can seem like you can get nothing done and that you only have the capacity to do things at 56%.  It has been really hard to juggle discipleship inductives, cell group readings/studyings, LTC homework and studying, and now adding WORD cell group teachings.  Trying to squeeze all this into one night a week and maybe a few spread out hours throughout the week.  Anyone in this position: insight would  greatly be appreciated.
