I have heard it said many times that balance is the key to life.
But it doesn’t seem so easy to achieve at times!
Balance is key – but how do we achieve it? With so many responsibilities and demands pulling us in every direction, it can often seem like an insurmountable task to balance everything. Kind of like juggling too many items in the air – something is bound to come crashing down! Sometimes what crashes is our health – physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, or all of them together!
So obviously, we need to learn HOW to achieve balance in our lives. Here’s one suggestion.
“It takes discipline to balance your life.
Examine your life today, and do what is needed to bring balance to the way you use your time.
If you have been asking God to lead you in the way you should go, you will have a sense of purpose building in you.
You can ask God to help you plan your day, your week, and your life.
I encourage you to write down the things that God imprints on your heart to do. Writing the vision, and placing it where you can routinely see it, will help settle the plan God puts inside of you.
Life without purpose is vanity. Today is an opportunity to willfully and deliberately seek God with the intent to know Him better than we knew Him yesterday.
Today we can deliberately move forward with the intent to accomplish good things for the kingdom.”
–Joyce Meyer in “Starting the Day Right”
Balance, planning, and purpose…relevant areas of my life under development right now. Especially since beginning my full-time remote position last March, I have found it increasingly difficult to achieve that balance among all the things I need to do and those things I want to do. When things are off balance, I find myself getting frustrated and even depressed at times.
However, I am determined to continue to pull down strongholds, overcome hurdles, and achieve a greater level of productivity and victorious living that aligns with the purpose in my life. I think my new year’s goal and focus phrase of “Declutter and Simplify” will help achieve that balance I desire to have in my life.
So what are YOUR thoughts?
Is your life balanced or off balance right now?
Do you have a plan to achieve balance, and to discover or fulfill your purpose in life?
