Chumbawamba Doctrine

Posts have been few and far between this last week. The fact is that last week I just hit the wall. For the last year and a half things seem to have been non stop. Any idea of life balance has been non existent.

Working full time in the church is what I believe God has gifted me to do and I love what I do. That's the problem. I feel driven by my passion, driven by His cause, driven by my desire to please God. I fool myself into thinking things will be different once I get past this project. Once I get this out of the way then I'll have more time for myself, more time for my family. The problem is that there is always another project.

Even on my recent "holiday" I took my lap top and my smart phone so I could continue to work. Well it all came home to roost last week. After sitting for 2 hours in front of my computer getting more and more frustrated that I couldn't complete a task that I could normally do in my sleep I had to bail out.

3 days of no e mail, no computer, no church staff at least I am able to start back. I still need to get some balance into my life and I know that's going to be hard.

Had a laugh today when I was reading the Bible. Paul was reflecting to the church at Corinth about some difficult times he had faced. In 2 Corinthians 4 v 9 he says "In times of trouble, God is with us, and when we are knocked down, we get up again."

It just reminded me of a song called

Tubthumping by Chumbawamba:

I get knocked down
But I get up again
You're never going to keep me down

Sometimes all we need to do is just get up again!
