I walk the line....finding the balance in life
Finding balance has been a reoccurring theme in my life. Each day I seek ways to walk the fine line between two ideas, some feels like one step too far in the wrong direction will result in a stumble or flat out fall.
I walk the line......
between contentment and complacency.
between flexibility and wise preparation.
between knowing if God wants my silence or my words.
between extending grace and speaking truth.
between idleness, and being still in recognition that I am not the one in control.
between avoiding self-centeredness, but still recognising the importance of self awareness.
between letting go of hurt, but still validating the impact of past abuse.
between accepting freedom from grace, but not presuming on grace and continuing to sin.
between forgiving, but not enabling continued bad behavior.
between being present in the moment, but still respecting the other people and obligations on my schedule.
between valuing spiritual disciplines, but not slipping into a works-based pride.
between creating healthy emotional boundaries, but not building walls made of bitterness and unforgiveness.
I seek Balance, Lord. Only in you, and your helper of the Holy Spirit can I find this. Please help me today.
