A Day in the Life of a Pastor – Back to Fundamentals


It has been a ride. If you noticed that I have not posted a blog in a while, so did I. I am coming off an interesting stretch of time, commitments and life events that just “took me out of my routine.” Traveling, got sick for a week, church events, family commitments – it all added up in the last few weeks.

One of the greatest lessons Pastor Craig taught me early in my time at Grace Family Church was “going back to your fundamentals when you are in dry times.” I can’t say this past few weeks have been dry times. However, that lesson has stuck with me so many times over the years. When you get busy, life gets tough, you don’t have any answers, or you just need to recalibrate….go back to your fundamentals. In sports, you go back to the basics. Musicians have scales vocally and musically. In leadership, vision and steps. In your relationship with God, devotion time, prayer and worship.

Are you stuck? Are you facing a situation bigger than you? Not sure of the next step? Instead of withdrawing from God, go back to your fundamentals. You will actually get closer to Him and back in the game.

  1. We missed the “Daily Bread”.. Glad you’re back in business.. There is an old saying that I like, that says “if you don’t get away from the basics you won’t have to go back to the basics.. I heard someone I look up to recently say “Talk to God at least as much as you talk about Him”.. It hit home for me.. My Serinity in life correlates 100% to the mantinance of my spiritual condition.. The only way I know to stay spiritually fit is to deepen my personal relationship with Christ through prayer..
    God Bless,
