Keeping A Balance
Would you do things differently if your circumstances changed?
It stopped me right in my tracks. But in a good way.
I was eager to find out where this was leading me - I had been seeking an answer to a particular dilemma and it had been a regular topic in my prayer life for quite a while. And here was an indication that I was now getting an answer - well, actually, a clarifying question - and as a result I had to give serious consideration to my work/life balance which was getting very ... messy.
It was becoming increasingly clear to me that I was getting the balance wrong. But what could I do to get the balance right? What could I change?
I was praying about it. And then, came the question...
The answer to the question.
So, what's next?
Lord, I know you didn’t intend for me to live a life dictated by work. Help me to recognise the ways I can find joy, rest and play in my hectic life. Help me be refreshed. And help me to recognise ways of changing my circumstances. Your ways. Amen.
