Beautifully Balanced

With life spread in so many directions, it is often challenging spending the necessary time on some of the things we would really like to focus on due to the various demands on our time.  Personally, like I’m guessing many of you, this is an on-going challenge.  There are many different types of personalities in the world, and mine tends to be one of those that has to be very careful not to get too bogged down because I spend too much time on little things.  Sometimes, I can get too meticulous and focused rather than just get ‘r done and move on.  Hence, slowing down progress and getting less done than I need or would like to.  This is one of my farther reaching goals to work on as it runs into every area and interest in my life.  However, I then remind myself that God has made us all unique and individual… ‘special’ each in our own way.  So, instead of beating myself up, I ‘try’ to go easy and just do better next time.   Life is way too short to worry too much about trivial things.  Live, Love, Laugh!  Shouldn’t that be a reality and not simply some warm fuzzy saying that we decorate our spaces with?….  So, take a moment to rest in yet another wonderful bit of wisdom and promise from our heavenly Papa’s Sovereign Word, by the hand of the wisest man who has ever lived, King Solomon,

“There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven…..  

a Time to be born and a time to die,

a time to plant and a tie to uproot,

a time to kill and a time to heal,

a time to tear down and a time to build,

a time to weep and a time to laugh,

a time to mourn and a time to dance,

a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,

a time to embrace and a time to refrain,

a time to search and a time to give up,

a time to keep and a time to throw away,

a time to tear and a time to mend,

a time to be silent and a time to speak,

a time to love and a time to hate,

a time for war and a time for peace.

He has made everything beautiful in its time.  He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end.  I know that there is nothing better for men than to be happy and do good while they live.  That everyone may eat and drink, and find satisfaction in all his toil–this is the gift of God.  I know that everything God does will endure forever; nothing can be added to it and nothing taken from it.  God does it so that men will revere him.”  Ecclesiastes 3:1, 9-14

 

No matter where you are in your journey, remember that there is not a moment that goes by in your life that does not matter.  Everything about you is important,… YOU matter.  Keep pressing on to be the best you each and every day…. and when you fall, just pop right back up and keep on going.  We only lose when we quit trying.  Press on, you have a high calling on your life.   Be blessed and be your best in Jesus, <3
