To get what you never had, you have to do what you've never done." -Thomas Jefferson
As Christmas sneaks up on us, and you attend your final parties and wrap the last few gifts, we want to take a moment to remind you how important it is to respect boundaries. It is easy to feel harried and stretched in a million directions this time of year (especially as someone in ministry... can you say End of Year Update?? Yikes!), but make sure to pencil in some time to rest. Even our Great Creator rested. As we finish up the season of Advent, take time to still your mind, approach the Throne, and recognize that your days are precious; spend them well.
Please read the short paragraph below, watch the video and then respond to the questions at the bottom of the page.
We are thankful for you, thankful for your work, and thankful for your heart.
You are passionate about your mission: you work hard to serve others and are always willing to give up your own time if needed. To be honest though, you probably work to much. You need a break, you need healthy boundaries in place and you need a hobby that has nothing to do with your calling.
As Perception Funding grows and we work with more and more ministries, we see that people following their calling typically struggle to establish healthy boundaries with work and knowing when (and how) to rest. This throws off the balance that must occur with work and family. We have seen this really affect a person's longevity to work for a mission, which in turn effects the impact of their mission as a whole.
We want your ministry to be successful; not just tomorrow, but in 10 years as well. In order for that to happen you have to know when and how to have a little fun!
So take 3 minutes, watch the video we made below and be challenged and encouraged to find rest.
Let's dig a little deeper...
Here are some indicators that you need to work on boundaries:
We've created Launch Pad to help you put a fundraising plan in place, to help you stay organized, and to help hold you accountable.
