Poor Investments

We all have a limited amount of energy to invest in our lives and relationships. I’ve been pondering this deeply lately. What I’m coming to see is as a Christ Follower, Jesus becomes the coach/mentor. It is helpful to have a human coach as well who can help me see the blindspots.

Together you determine a course of action that will produce the life you dream about living. A life of meaning, goodness and impact. A life of productivity and blessing. I must ask myself then, how willing am I to invest my limited energy source into the plan? There will be several pieces of the pie that require my energy, like family, work, health, friendships and my health. How willing am I to work the plan?

0    1    2    3    4     5     6    7    8     9     10

0 = not willing          5 = moderately willing     10= I will do whatever it takes

I need to be willing to honestly consider what I am investing some of my limited reserve of energy into that is actually detouring me away from accomplishing the vision I have for my life.

I will write more specifics on this next time! I recently bought a web address for my blog. You can find it at www.scottranck.com.



About Scott Ranck

Enjoying life with my wife Gayle and our Yorkie, Zoe boy. I've come to believe life begins when through brokenness I can embrace it fully and openly. I've learned the human drama is an adventure and all of us are made of the same stuff. The Lord is the only being who knows me fully and he has an individual educational plan of life long learning for me and I'm enrolled. This blog is all about what I'm learning.

    I’m enjoying seeing you enjoy life! Being your wife and friend are what makes my life full and rich. You have been my coach by watching and listening to you these 38 3/4 years, your successes as well as your failures. I am so blessed to have this ‘close-up’ of you in this daily classroom of life as a Christ-follower. I am learning to follow you as you follow Christ and what a gift it’s been.
