If you’re surfing the waves of life dot complicated, you need a bit of simple.
Because – and you know this – if we can keep the Big Rocks simple and steady, we’ll have grace for the chaos of gravel. So here’s what I’m preaching at me:
# 1 – SOUL
The Creator-King wants to meet with you every day. The choice is simple: Either you’re going to show up, or you’re not.
# 2 – MARRIAGE
Communicate, communicate, communicate. Keep finding each other.
# 3 – KIDS
It’s their hearts that matter. The rest is detail. And beautiful detail develops from soft, strong hearts. Keep praying that God would show you their hearts. Go hard after their hearts, every time.
# 4 – FRIENDS
Be a happy, uncomplicated friend. Don’t waste an interaction by offering anything other than warm words of life.
# 5 – CAREER
Don’t add to the noise. As far as possible, only do the things that only you can do.
#6 – FOOD
Don’t worry about it. Don’t worship it. Before every meal, treat or temptation, pray: Choose my weight; choose my plate.
# 7 – REST
Set a nighttime downtime alarm: a reminder to wind down. Then don’t check your phone again until after breakfast.
# 8 – MOVE
Find ways to be active every day. Try your hardest. Have as much fun as possible.
# 9 – HOME
Keep it tidy. Put things away when you’re done. Keep it real. Make space for the raucous and the resting.
# 10 – MONEY
Pray for wisdom. Budget. Give. Save. Live. Enjoy. Repeat.
