The Balancing Act

I have been working on several new projects and seeking God’s wisdom on how to BALANCE life. WHY? In order to HONOR HIM. In today’s world we are saturated with technological savvy messages on how to get our product out there in order to grow our business. There are apps to help us schedule our advertising through Blogging, Facebook, and Instagram. 

Thankfully there is ancient wisdom still relevant for us today – Holy Scripture, to help us schedule our entire life for godly success. Psalm 23:3 reminds us to rest “for sake of His reputation.” Deuteronomy 30:15-17 warns us of the dangers of idolatry, putting our work (or other) before God. And finally Phil. 4:8 gives us a list of godly virtues in which to analyze our agenda and motivation by.

 I encourage you to consider Christ, and His way, and you will find balance and joy.

I was reading in My Inspire Journey the other day about God’s plan for Sabbath rest. Psalm 23 was one of the scripture readings. Every time I read scripture I learn something new, even when reading a familiar, well known passage. I was struck by verse 3 in the EXB (Expanded Bible) by the word  ‘reputation’. He leads us into rest and on right paths for the good of his reputation. Everything I do as a His follower affects His reputation. Now that’s a good reason to make sure I’m rested. What do you think?
