WARNING! Holiday Burnout
Salt & Light Volume II, Issue 35 by D. Scott Prindle

"You have seen many things, but have paid no attention: your ears are open but you hear nothing." (Isaiah 42:20)

Many Things
holiday burnout This time of year used to mean the start of "Busy Season".

It's when running a ski shop turned about face and began to run us. There were never enough hours in the day to get all the work done as customers poured in to get ready for another ski season.

Right on it's heels were the holidays... Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years. It could be one big blur.

There were many things happening, but activity can begin to drown out life's real purpose; looking for and taking advantage of divine appointments to be salt and light through your work.

If you're not careful, it can lead to burnout and loss of spiritual sensitivity.

Healthy Habits
We're learning to trust the Lord and be anxious for nothing so we can hear and pay attention to God's Spirit.

Here are 3 things you can develop to stay spiritually alert when things get busy:

  1. Healthy habits in daily prayer, worship, and the word.
  2. Healthy relationships in family, work, and with other believers.
  3. Healthy lifestyle in exercise, eating, rest and recreation.
Start with One Thing
Start with your weakest area and change one thing in your daily routine that is a step in the direction you want to go. Ask God for the grace to make the change and then commit.

Focus on your
success, not
your failure.

Decide that failure is not an option.

You will not be perfect, but that is not the end result you're looking for. Success is anything you do that moves you toward where you want to go.

Focus on your success, not your failure.

Love Never Fails,
Scott & Laurie Prindle
