Clear Your Head!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." ~Philippians 4:6 I did something last week I'd never done before--I took a day off from work (both jobs), left the house early in the morning, and spent most of the day in a local park. I took a cooler full of water, my Bible, and a journal.  And that was it.  No phone.  No iPad.  Nothing that would distract me from what I needed to do.  I really needed to clear my head. I work a full-time job, and about six months ago, I became a part-time bi-vocational pastor of a small town Baptist church. It's been a challenge balancing my time between those two roles, and making sure I still have time for my family and keeping the yard mowed. But I've sure enjoyed it.  I like to be busy.  And I've found a pretty good balance. I have time enough to do everything I need to do as a pastor, but I just don't have enough time to do everything
