I used to try to get some balance in my life. It was difficult. Every time something was added or taken away I would be all out of balance.
I can't balance my life.
And I no longer want to because God deserves much more than a balanced portion of my life. He deserves all of my life and everything else should flow from there.
What I want now is focus.
Absolute and complete focus on Jesus... because when I am focused on Jesus my life will find balance without much effort from me. Feeling out of balance is an indicator that my focus is on the wrong thing/person.
This week I am out of focus and it's leaving me feeling stressed. I know the answer is to fix my eyes on Jesus and nothing else. It's not always easy but it is necessary.
Focus is the way to go.
