Life Is A Balancing Act
Often times we talk about our busy lives, which in my experience busy is not always a bad thing. It really just depends on what you are busy doing. Whatever it is that is consuming your time, make sure that it helps you move towards fulfilling your purpose in life and is not hindering it. We talked about priorities the other day, now I’d like to talk about balance for a moment. When there is balance, it allows you to remain upright and steady. With balance comes stability and with stability comes strength.
When going about the daily hustle and bustle of life we have to have balance. A great example I’d like to give are the many different types of food all over the world. No matter what it is, each variety of food falls into one of the different food groups. Research has shown that in order to be healthy, we should eat something out of each food group every day. Here’s the kicker though, we need some of all of it, but not all of any of it. There has to be balance in order to stay healthy. If you over do any of it or under do any of it, this will have an impact on the way your body functions.
Same goes for life. To have a fruitful, thriving, victorious life you must have balance. If you don’t know how to balance all that you have going on, ask God. He is there ready to talk to you and give you strategy on what to do. He does not want you to be all weighed down and consumed. At times I feel overwhelmed because I do have a whole lot going on, but I’ve learned that if I don’t put too much of my energy into one thing and not enough into something else it gets me off-balance. If I don’t want to feel overwhelmed, I cannot do that. God has begun to give me different strategies and ways to make sure I focus my attention properly. I most certainly couldn’t figure it out on my own and I still have days that are a little more cumbersome than others, but I learn from them.
Is there an area of your life that is off-balance? Doing too much of one thing, but not enough of another? Find these areas in life that need some adjustments and make them. The opportunity for things to change for the better is there. You just have to make a decision and make it happen. As the saying goes, life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you have to keep moving. Life is a balancing act, what will your finale be like? #iDeclare #lifeisabalancingact
Dear God, please help me to find balance in my life. Please give me strategy on how to go forth day-to-day and not become overwhelmed with too much of anything. I decree and declare that I will listen to your instruction and guidance so that I do not become weighed down and consumed with things that I should not be. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Ecclesiates 3:1- 8 NIV “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build,a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.
