There are thirty-one entries for the word balance on Dictionary.com. Who knew?
Here are a few:
But what does it look like to live a life of balance? Especially at such a busy time of year as December.
God says we are to be still and know him. The world says busyness is what counts.
How can we be still, press into God, and spend time resting in him to understand the true meaning of Christmas, if we spend all our time like hamsters on a wheel spinning round and round but never getting anywhere for the effort; running from one item on our to-do list to the next?
Where’s the peaceful balance in that?
I like the verb definition that says balancing something means
This definition from Webster is my favorite, though. A state in which different things occur in equal or proper amounts or have an equal or proper amount of importance.
Proper amount of importance.
Our primary focus needs to be on God and the truths found in his Bible. Next we need to spend the time to read that Word, study what it says, and finally apply it to our lives. Once we do that, we just might find the other things in our life fall into place proportionately with just the right balance.
What do you do to live a life of balance?

I have thought much about your words and stored them in my heart so that they would hold me back from sin. Psalm 119:11 (TLB)
I wish you well.
