Disrupt your rhythms, strategically
The longer you do ministry, the easier it becomes to minister from memory. You tend to do what you used to do. It is safe, comfortable, and convenient.
To stay spiritually and creatively fresh, I suggest “strategic disruptions.” Today we’ll talk about how to disrupt life’s rhythms.
Because people can be creatures of habits, life often looks relatively similar from day to day, week to week, and year to year.
I suggest defining your rhythms—and then disrupting them.
- If you drive the same way to work, take a different road.
- If you study the Bible the same way, try a different approach.
- If you listen to the same type of music, tune into something entirely different.
- If you read the same books, stretch yourself. Read out of your comfort zone.
- If you order the same thing off the menu, venture out and try something you’ve never had.
By disrupting your rhythms, you may experience just enough to change your perspective slightly. Suddenly, you could be more sensitive to hear something new from God.
