Getting your Life Back

We thought it would be a perfect way to start our week by looking at a few practical ways to find peace when chaos is running high and how to cultivate hope (even now!)

Science has proven time and time again that stress is the biggest strain on our ability to cope with the challenges and changes we face. Panic can often bring with it uncontrollable fear and anxiety which narrows our thinking, and makes us an island of one at a time when we need each other more than ever.

Our takeaway today is to focus on the things we can control instead of the main circumstances outside of our ability to change. It’s a perfect time to slow down and be more aware of God’s presence in our lives, even when our focus is being diverted away.

When it comes down to key insights of how to soak in more of God’s presence, we have loved the insights from John Eldredge in his book, “Get Your Life Back”. He highlights a few wonderfully simple practices, or what John calls “graces”- to choose peace over panic, to uplift your spirits, and to have a concrete way to disentangle from the hardships of the world.

These graces include…   

  • Learn to insert Sacred Pauses into your day.
  • Offer kindness toward yourself and those around you.
  • Drink in the simple beauty available to you every day.
  • Take simple steps to unplug from technology overload.  

As you move forward into your week, we encourage you to explore trying a ‘sacred pause’ occasionally throughout your day. It’s a core part of our RISE Philosophy in our 7 Minute Journal and all of our core programs.

You’ll be surprised what a minute can do for your soul! Honestly, you can do this pause anytime and anywhere. It’s a time to let go of the stress and strain of the day, and to invite God to fill you with His never-ending love and grace.

As David wrote in the Psalm 131:2, “I have cultivated a quiet heart.” Taking a sacred pause is a beautiful and a simple way to refresh your spirit and develop a quiet heart, no matter the chaos that may abound. The practice itself is wonderful, and it opens a space in your soul for God to meet you there.

If you’re looking for an inspirational tool to make this happen, check out the free app One Minute Pause by John Eldridge. It provides an easy way to integrate a sacred pause throughout your day and we have found it to be a beautiful way to refresh and recharge, definitely a great way to provide moments of peace amidst the storm and to bring in greater sense of hope in our lives.

If you’re looking for more support on the journey we have our 21 Spring Reset coming up May 9th - we’d love to have you join us!
