This October, I have a renewed hope that I can finally catch my breath again. The new school year came in with a bang, and I have spent the month of September embracing new routines, long homework lists, and busy sports schedules. Even though the busyness has been the “good kind” of busy, life has still felt a little imbalanced. And my body, mind, and spirit could use some rest. Yes, I could use a chance to hit the reset button, reprioritize, and begin anew.
Could you use this, too?
Having seasons of busyness is not unusual. From time to time, most of us experience seasons when the rhythms of life get off track. Outside demands wrestle with our interior quest for order, and before we know it, life feels crazy.
Sometimes, we don’t even realize it is happening, until we wake up one morning and don’t recognize our life. We wonder, “When was the last time I prayed?” Or, “When was the last time we ate dinner as a family?”
At this point, it can be hard to restore things back to order.
Why? Because we are overwhelmed and too weary to be inspired.
Four Weeks to Reset the Rhythms of Life
That’s why this October, I’d like to spend some time resetting the rhythms of life. This month, I’d like to pause, breathe, and pray. I’d like to imagine how I’d like my days and weeks to flow, and then find simple ways to make that happen.
And I’d like to invite you to join me.
Beginning October 1, I am offering a 31-day series that will help us reset the rhythms of life. It will be a time to renew, reclaim, refocus, and refresh. Rooted in Scripture, each week will focus on one area of life: prayer, family, attention, and home.
By the end, our to-do lists won’t be complete, and our homes will not be 100% clutter-free. (At least mine won’t be!) But my hope is that we will encounter God in the present moment—no matter what moment we’re in. I hope we will feel unstuck, and no longer discouraged and overwhelmed. I pray that we find refreshment for our souls and peace for our minds. In the end, I trust that life will feel more ordered, and the rhythms of life will be restored.
Each day, I will post a scripture quote, a guided journal prompt, and an inspiring image. I may reflect more here and there. The goal will be to carve out a few minutes per day praying with the scripture and journaling. If you ever miss a day, that’s OK. There is no shame here! You can access what you miss by returning to this landing page. Or you can simply pick up where you left off and keep moving along.
