Have you ever noticed how easily survival mode kicks in and you drift into auto pilot when schedules get busy in the fall? Slower summer days are gone, and you start to feel hurried and stressed as you try to adapt to new routines. Driving kids back and forth to school. Juggling new job assignments with family, kids’ activities, and sports events.
Overwhelm sets in, and we start to wonder, “Is this the abundant life Jesus was talking about? It feels more like survival.”
