Balance



Day in and day out we are balancing so many things, work, taking the kids where they need to go, helping pick up grandkids, community involvement, taking time for yourself, the list can and does go on and on.


If are honest we probably feel like we’re failing at one thing or another in our day-to-day stuff. We sacrifice a work project to make more time for our family, or we put off helping our neighbors with yardwork to finish the self-help book we hope will change our lives. There are so many things pulling us in so many different directions that it’s easy to see our spiritual lives fall by the wayside.


It is a struggle to get all we want or need done in a day but one thing we should always strive to prioritize is time with God.


1 Corinthians 15:58 says, “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.”


There are some days I feel like I got it all done and I can rest and there are other days where I may have only gotten done at work what needed to be done. Those days where I didn’t feel like I got anything done are more overwhelming than the days where I got it all done for the day. They are overwhelming because that stuff either isn’t going to get done or now, I have to do it tomorrow. Sometimes we can sit in that overwhelming feeling and forget that we may have actually accomplished more than we think.


We went to work; we got the kids taken care of and we made dinner. Those are good things that we did.


Ecclesiastes 7:8 says, "Finishing is better than starting. Patience is better than pride."


So, starting is good, that’s a start but it’s the finishing and accomplishing that we need to be looking at. When you start with spending time with the Lord, and you finish by spending time with the Lord, then you have accomplished so much already.


Balancing and prioritizing is something we are always adjusting to but one thing we can strive to set a time every day to spend time with the Lord.


John 15:4 says, "Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me."


If we prioritize our time with God, our life will feel more balanced. We will have a better perspective what we need to do throughout our days, and we are more focused on what God has for us and needs of us.
