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.
