The Balancing Act

“I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection! But I keep working toward that day when I will be all that Christ Jesus saved me for and wants me to be.” (Philippians 3:12, NIV)

Don’t you love to watch Olympic athletes performing on the balance beam? Don’t you admire their focus to accomplish their goals? I do!

As each year passes I strive for more balance in my life. I want to be a focused, determined, “eye-on-the-goal” Christian. Are you like me?

Do you seek not to “go to church” but to worship? Do you seek not to “work” but to live for the Lord? Do you want a balance of “doing” and just being quiet with Him?

Are you learning, as I am, to appreciate a balance of joy and sorrow, prosperity and adversity, recognition and humiliation? And how about learning how to be both a grateful giver and gracious receiver? Do you want to avoid segregating work from home, leisure from learning and strive to integrate all of these into just living in precious communion with Him each moment of the day? Is biblical, balanced living an impossible dream? I don’t think so, for “with God all things are possible!”

Oh, Father, we want to be disciplined and to present balanced lives to You. Help us find that integrated, whole walk, focused on You only, as we go about living. In our Teacher’s name. Amen.
