Being Shaped by Rhythm

Every season has a purpose.

Winter is meant to shape new life.
Spring brings new life to fruition.
Fall is the transition of life to death.
And summer...well summer is all about rest & fun.

For the better part of the last 5 years I've been captivated by the idea of rhythm. 

Life cycles

All of these elements have one thing in common...rhythm.

It's in understanding the rhythms that are at play, those that are self-imposed and those that are systemically imposed that you can find a way to create a life rhythm for yourself (and your family) that is not only sustainable, but one that is also life-giving.

For some, it's a desire to be surrounded by everything familiar in order to foster a rhythm that is life-giving and sustainable. For others, it may be the complete opposite.

One thing is absolute in either setting, rhythm cannot be avoided or ignored. 

If you're in a space where you are questioning whether or not your pace of life (also known as rhythm) is sustainable, perhaps it's time to discover what elements you can adjust to shape a reality moving forward.

What do you think? How does the rhythm of your life impact you story and your legacy?


  1. I can echo your idea of rhythm. Sometimes that's all we have to adjust in life. Rather than right thinking, right doing, and what helps us do is to adjust what rhythm we have going on with something that embodies Gospel character. What I'm exploring is Mike Frosts concept of of BELLS to impact my daily rhythm.

  2. Thanks Rohadi! Would love to hear more about how you are using BELLS and what you think about it.

    1. It's a simple rhythm to help embody Gospel in the neighborhood!
