Spiritual Life Coaching – Routine

Spiritual Life Coaching – Routine

One of the things that I have found to be most helpful for me right now is routine. I don’t want to go anywhere or travel to find myself alone in a strange place – I need work and routine. The gym, the office, worship, friends who care, the dogs – ordinary stuff. It has been good medicine for me. I’ve been cleaning and organizing things too. I think it is a metaphor for my life right now – I’m trying to organize it in a new way. Sue used to tell me, “Bury me with a list in my hand.” We were both avid list makers – we were doers and it kept us on task. Perhaps that’s why it is a comfort now.

There will be new lists now and new ways of doing things. On Sunday we read the passage from Revelation 21 together and it remains a powerful passage to me:

“I heard a loud shout from the throne, saying, ‘Look, God’s home is now among his people! He will live with them, and they will be his people. God himself will be with them. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.’ And the one sitting on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new!'”

“All things new,” I wasn’t ready for all things to be new but there it is – new. It’s putting my faith to the test. Believe that God is working all things around for the good of those who love God? (Romans 8:28) That is what I am doing – trusting that – hanging on to that. The key here is to not be anxious and do anything stupid like trying to rush in like a bull in a China-shop and put my plans in motion instead of God’s.

Be Well

    Dennis, you are right to say not to rush into anything, I speak from experience. Your cleaning and organizing is good, but be ware of what you discard. My heart goes out to you every day. Grief is not brief.
