BUILD A LIFE YOU NO LONGER WANT TO ESCAPE FROM
RENEW YOUR FAITH THROUGH DEPENDANCE AND COMMITMENT TO GOD
My Hope For Us in this season is that we will experience a fresh dedication of ourselves to
prayer which will bring us to a new level of dependance on God and will renew our perspective
of our life, our relationship with God, and our world; and commitment to Jesus and His church.
-Pastor Kevin Greene

Downtime can consume a lot of your time. One hour turns into two turns into five. On a scale of 1 to 10 how satisfied are you with how you spend your rest/downtime? Would your spouse or good friend say you “watch too much tv, spend too much time on your phone, etc.?”
ACTION: READ. Read something that interests you today.
SCRIPTURE: 8 And now, dear brothers and sisters, one final thing. Fix your thoughts on what is true, and honorable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise. 9 Keep putting into practice all you learned and received from me—everything you heard from me and saw me doing. Then the God of peace will be with you. – Philippians 4:8-9 NLT
Review your normal schedule and ask yourself these two questions
1) Is my schedule what I want it to be?
2) Am I making time for the most important things in my life?
ACTION: WALK. Go for a walk that lasts for at least 5 minutes.

Write your normal schedule for today on a piece of paper. What do you do and when do you do it? Let’s first be aware of what we are doing with our time.
ACTION (Put Your Prayer Into Motion and apply some of the principles that we are talking about in The Balance Myth Series): Set a timer for 5 minutes and literally do nothing. Reflect on what you think about and how you feel.
SCRIPTURE: He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.” – Psalm 46:10
