Finding Balance On Our Journey

This month's message series at my church is all about balance: something I really could use right now. Everything takes so much time. Even the good, fulfilling and healthy things fill up space on my daily calendar. Some days it seems like there isn't enough time to just do what must be done. Does anyone else out there feel that way?

Right now I'm making a list of daily tasks and I'm going to try to commit to them. Whatever else doesn't make the list I might need to learn to let go of at the end of each day. I think what I really need to do is review my task list with God every morning and evening. Maybe my question should be, "Lord what do you think I should do today?" Really, nothing else should matter to me. I have to admit, though, that I don't have such great self control: I'll forget to review that list or I'll deviate from it on my weak days. I'll try to fill my day with all kinds of stuff, and I'll regret my busy, hectic, meaningless day when the day is done.

If you're reading this would you please pray for me? Pray that I can stick to the plan: God's plan. And, let me know if you'd like me to pray for you. Let me know what occupies your day. Share what you struggle with. I'd like to know I'm not alone. I'd also like to help if I can.

Take Apart 2,
Age 45

I am in the throes of taking apart my old art: the art that doesn't please me in its entirety. I love pieces of these pieces though, so I start to use them. I make some new work that is not entirely new. I make something better from something not quite right. It is satisfying.

Old Junk
Age 42

I’m gonna pull that Old Junk out of my head. I’m not going to give it a chance to play its old song of doubt, fear and sadness. Instead, I’m going to believe something new, write a new song and let that new tape play. Old tape out, new tape in!
