24 hours. I realized I can do something (or stop doing something) for 24 hours. At the beginning of the year, I set a bunch of goals. Like we all do, right?! 😅 But, they started to overwhelm me.
But one day, one of our lead pastors spoke about his alcoholism. About how it felt daunting and overwhelming. But they told him at AA to focus on 24 hours. Just stay sober for 24 hours. Let me know if you want me to send you this message! It was sooo good.
So then he lead into our sin struggles and how it can feel daunting to think I’ll always struggle with anger, self righteousness, critical spirit... but to just focus on 24 hours. 24 hours of self control and leaning into the Spirit. So for that one day, really working hard to not get frustrated or working hard to be humble instead of prideful.
We can all do one new thing or stop doing something for 24 hours. Don’t look further then that. Just that day. What’s something you can eliminate or work harder at today?
