This is a bit of a funny post for me to write. Seeing as I haven’t really been finding my groove with writing blog posts. That’s beside the point though. If you’re anything like me life can feel like it gets out of hand pretty often. It seems within a matter of days my life can spiral out of control in a chaotic mess of meetings, plans and work to be done. You try and plan out a week but by Tuesday all of your plans have gone straight out the window (I’m aware that to some that sounds amazing!).
The last couple weeks I’ve been really finding my groove. I’ve planned things out and stuck to the plan. For me, finding the groove looks like planning out almost every hour of my week and sticking to it. For others, the groove might be having that one hour a day to just do something you enjoy. I’m not trying to say that everyone needs to be a type A person who thrives on plans and a calendar, but what I do want to suggest is the importance of finding your groove.
Since as Christians we like to use the bible, let me show you one small verse I found that supports this idea.
“But Jesus, often withdrew to lonely places and prayed” Luke 5:16
In the verses leading up to and after this verse we see a chaotic scene. The verse right before verse 16 says this,
“Yet the news about him spread all the more, so that crowds of people came to hear him and to be healed of their sicknesses” Luke 5:15
At this time Jesus was becoming a big deal and I’m sure you could say that his life was getting pretty chaotic. The thing I love is that in the midst of all of the crazy things going on we find this beautiful little verse about Jesus going away to lonely places. This was Jesus finding his groove. He knew that in order to thrive he needed to find that thing, that place, that groove that would help him connect to the Father.
God made all of us unique. He made all of us to encounter and experience Him in different ways. We all find joy and life in different things and what I want to suggest is that connecting with God, however that is, is the key to finding your groove. For Jesus it looked like withdrawing to lonely places. For you it might be a cup of coffee and a journal. It might be listening to records, or taking pictures. For others it might be hanging out with friends around a campfire.
The “groove” is whatever connects you with God!
What things do you do that cause you to connect with God? Do you make time for them? Do you do them often? Are you finding your own groove? Ask the Holy Spirit and see what He suggests! Connecting with God is easier than you think and can be done even in the simple things. Find your groove today! 🙂
Katrina and I love to connect with God and each other by taking pics (as you can tell from the pic above! 🙂
