I came across this article today and I found it convicting. Though I’m still a single lad, I definitely relate to this.
After a long day of work, want to check out, zone out, and peace out.
I think even though I have an ordinary job, the toll it takes on me after a long day is very real. Usually, I come home exhausted. Looking forward to dinner, some TV with family, and maybe reviewing some things I learned from work are the best I can do without exerting any more effort.
However, if family is a priority, then this article is convicting me to take a second and refresh before engaging with the family at home. My family deserves just as much, if not more of my attention than my work and if I fail to do that, then I must say I am not leading my family well.
So here will be some things I’ll try to work on this week:
- Rest a few minutes in my car after work to refocus before going home. This may help clear my mind from everything that happened during the day and write down things I need to remember for tomorrow.
- Pray for rest, focus, and joy in Jesus. I can’t love my family if I’m not experiencing the love of God for myself.
- Thinking of ways I’d like to connect with my family before going home and then doing it.
Looking forward to this!
