Dear Friends at CTK,
 
I took last weekend off from preaching and got out of town for a short rest. Lying in bed my first day back, I said to the Lord, “I am way too tired to head back to work. That break was not nearly long enough!”
 
Just then, my iPhone buzzed, indicating that I had a new message. It was from a friend of mine who also happens to be a Pastor. He was letting me know that he was praying for me right at that moment. 
 
In reply I told to him what I had just said to the Lord and thanked him for his prayers. What he said next were words of wisdom that I needed to hear: “Tim, I totally get it and have been there myself. As a shepherd, God has given you a rhythm to lead your church; stay with that rhythm.”
 
These wise words have helped me throughout this week. Like most of us, I feel a constant pressure to perform at my peak capacity and beyond. Too many times in life, I have let others dictate to me the speed at which I must run and the heights to which I must climb. This creates a pressure that God never designed me to live with and an exhaustion that creeps deep into my soul. 
 
Do you relate with these words? If so, it might be time to hear the words of wisdom from my friend. God has created you with your own unique capacity, speed, and rhythm for life. He has designed the make-up of each of our families differently. Not every church is the same either. Maybe it is time for us to rediscover the beauty of God’s creative purposes for each of us as individuals, families, and church bodies. We are not all the same… Let us rejoice in His creative work!
 
Love to all and praying for each of you, 
Tim Davis.
