“If Satan can’t make you bad, he’ll make you busy.”
“I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.
Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.
That’s why award-winning author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.
Selected as 2014 Christian Book of the Year.
Highly practical and super short (160 pages), Crazy Busy will help you put an end to “busyness as usual.” With warmth, humor, and honesty, DeYoung explains why a life of constant chaos is far from what God intends, and helps you strike a balance between doing nothing and doing everything. Discover the restful cure you’ve been too busy to find!
I first read in 2014 and often return to review Kevin’s concepts…especially about creating MARGIN in my schedule. So far in 2016, I have given three copies to men who have full schedules.
Constant busyness is dangerous for our souls. In this short, honest, and often humorous book, DeYoung rejects the “busyness as usual” mindset, helping us to make time for the things that really matter.
Busy is a tool that Satan uses to get us off track and to steal our time. Sometimes, it doesn’t take blatant sin to rob us of what God has for us. Sometimes we miss it because we fill our lives with busyness.
Make 2016 a GREAT year….it is YOUR choice.
