Is balance better when our eyes are wide opened & fixed?
We can find great training on life-balance at professional workshops, on the internet, and even in our sermons. In this crazy, high demand, and fast paced world it seems life-balance is something we can all use. However, training on life-balance will often vary from both ends of the spectrum.
One side will preach there is no such thing as balanced living and it is ridiculous to strive for. That life will always have twists and turns that will throw you off balance. While the other side can often leave you feeling like you simply aren’t organized or prioritizing enough. That you should be able to find complete peace and balance.
I say the truth lies in both. Let’s do as the Word tells us and let us fix our eyes on the one object that can bring us peace and guide us to a firmly planted stance.
“The eye is the lamp of the body. So, if your eye is healthy, your whole body will be full of light, 23 but if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light in you is darkness, how great is the darkness! Matthew 6:22-23
Let me share with you why I feel this verse speaks so well to life balance. When I am off balance, it is typically because I have gotten stuck in the world and I am focussing on all of IT’S demands.
This verse speaks such truth on our sight being the precursor to how our body exists.
When I have God; His Word in my heart, His praise songs speaking truth into my mind, and His power in my sight first and foremost, my body does so well. In fact, I am amazed to see how much more my body can do and accomplish when God’s work is in my heart, His love fills me up, and His power strengthens me. Sure we will all have seasons that will try to throw us off balance. But regardless of this crazy world we live in- like a poised ballerina, fix your eyes on what you know can offer you the things you need to stay firmly planted.
For this month’s training on life-balance join me at the ‘Legacy Leader Forum’ on Facebook Live Wednesday, July 19th at noon…or IN PERSON at the Downtown Grille in my home town, Orange City!
