Spiritual health is the key component to success in ministry, no matter what department or ministry responsibilities you hold.
On the tech side of the ministry, I believe it is the only thing that will guarantee your longevity in the ministry.
Being in tech ministry requires a lot of time and sacrifice, thus creating the need for spiritual health. I think that sometimes we try to make spiritual health something that is so hard to achieve.
I believe that it’s actually really easy. It’s about building a habit and routine, then sticking to it.
Spiritual health amounts to holding strong to your relationship with God, and a relationship requires spending time with that person.
You must create time in your daily life to spend with God.
If your internal “self” isn’t building a healthy relationship with God, then your external “self” will end up suffering.
What lies in your heart will show up through your daily life and building a healthy relationship with God will keep your heart in the right place.
What happens in the tech world of ministry is that we feel like we are in church so much, that we don’t need to spend additional time with God. The problem is that just because of our busyness in church, it doesn’t mean we are truly spending time with God.
We get this false impression that the amount of time we spend serving the church equals our time with God.
I believe that busyness is one of the enemy’s tactics, all to try and knock us down. It’s like that sucker punch you never saw coming. We need to put up our guard and block out the attacks that are being led by the enemy.
Let’s build healthy habits that help build our relationship with God.
If you are struggling with the thought of “it just takes so much to build it,” I say that you should just start off small. Begin with a simple daily devotion, and then slowly build from there.
Little by little and things will eventually grow and flourish.
