The Journey Begins Now. 5 Day Journey of Real Talk for Real People for Real Balance!

Join me for the 5 part blog series, “God Help Me To Balance My Life,” starting Tuesday, September 26th!

Every one of us who is determined to live our best life, will struggle with balancing life.  When you pursue purpose or challenge yourself to have God’s best, life can get hectic.  When we’re kicking in doors, wearing our cape and pushing for more, the price for balance goes up.

If you think about it, most of our plans or desires don’t include time for self, time to self-reflect, time to evaluate if we’re doing right things right.  Sometimes busy is not a sign of progress or effectiveness, sometimes busy is a sign of doing right things wrong or doing wrong things right.

When we’re overwhelmed, neglecting self and soul tired, we’re off balance.  When we confuse quantity with quality, we can be busy but not effective.  When we try to force people to fit into our life who don’t fit into God’s plans for our life, the enemy will use them to keep us distracted, distressed and drained.

Whether we’re trying to balance life, family, relationship, business or even faith (Ecclesiastes 7:16), we have to recognize that there are two parts to every balancing act: what we have to do and what others have to do.  The only one of these that we can control, is what we have to do. Balance is not a requirement for life, balance is a requirement for stability, peace, joy and quality living on our way to achieving the life that God planned for us (Jeremiah 29:11).

Everybody wants balance.  If we don’t, we either already have it or chaos is comfortable. Many of us desire the outcome of balance but we let the process frustrate us to the point where trying to achieve balance creates imbalance. One of the most important things we have to realize about balance is that it is not a destination, it’s the little things we practice daily.

The only truth that will set us free, is the truth we use.  When we take our life, our potential and God’s plans for our life serious, we have to apply the truth to walk in power. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, reminds us of the most important principle about balance: There is a time for everything, and everything has a time. Appointed times, the right time, the best time, effective use of time and not wasting time, are the keys to creating balance in our life.  There is a right time to have a discussion with your mate; there is an appointed time to release expired relationships; there is a best time to add more to your plate; there is never a right time to waste time or energy, and effective use of time is not about what we do but about doing right things right.

If you are one of those who enjoys investing in self, growing and elevating to your next levels in life, I want to invite you to take a life changing, 5 day journey of “Real Talk for Real People for Real Balance,” based on five powerful biblical principles.  This is a free, online, interactive discussion that starts Tuesday, September 26th. Each day, a new blog post will be published on a new topic. Blog posts can be accessed here or through links on Facebook (@patrickweaverministries):

  1. Day 1: Balance is not child’s play (1 Corinthians 13:11)
  2. Day 2: You cannot balance a lie (Proverbs 11:1)
  3. Day 3: Self-talk makes balance walk (1 Samuel 30:6)
  4. Day 4: There is a time for everything (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
  5. Day 5: A balanced life cannot carry everybody (Proverbs 13:20)

This is your life, and you have the power to, “have life and life more abundantly.” The 5 principles are broken down into 2 parts — internal and external, what you can do in you and what you can do around you to create balance in your life.  Remember, these are not a limitation of the tools you can use but prayerfully, you will be inspired to add to and continue to identify the tools that will help you achieve your goal of powerful balance.

If you know somebody, care enough about somebody or believe everybody you know deserves to walk in power, be a blessing a share this life changing opportunity with them.
