[pullquote style=”left”]There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1[/pullquote]
Balance is important in all aspects of life. We need balance between work and prayer, being alone and being in community, relationship with God and relationship with others, to name a few. How well-balanced is your life? Are you taking time for work and play? Are you taking time to pray and to actively serve others? Are you working on your relationship with God and your relationship with others?
It’s easy to get out of balance, especially here in the north where we have such a short season of warm weather that we want to take advantage of every moment. It’s great to be able to enjoy the gift of summer. It’s important to take time out from our busy activity to gather each week with others to worship God. It’s easy to get caught up in our busy schedules and neglect our time with God.
I encourage you to think about the various aspects of your life and whether or not your life has balance in the things that matter. If not, seek God’s help and the help of other Christians to find ways to make adjustments in your life to bring things back into a life-giving rhythm.
May the summer season be a time to bring balance to all aspects of your life.
In Christ’s love,
