Just some quick thoughts…I know I am not the only one. I have talked to tons of others but how to deal with it?
I am a father, a husband, an employee, a student and a Christian, in many areas these things overlap but often they do not. Where do you find time for it all? To be successful I need to read a lot for my job. I need to study and continually improve myself. I am sure there are many jobs where this isn’t required but mine is not one of them. How am I supposed to balance my time?
When you feel a call to ministry on your life (as I do) you seem to place a higher priority on study of the Bible and theology than “normal Christians.” I wonder if that has hindered my career. God has not yet called me into full time ministry, I don’t know that he ever will but I have tried to walk a line between being prepared for both full time ministry and my full time IT career, so I have not been able to give full attention to either.
How do you balance learning about God and career?
