In the busyness of life, it seems as though we are running out of time. We are wearing many hats, wife, husband, friend, family, church and list goes on and on. I realized that we need a little bit more balance in our lives. We are too busy to discern, pray, pay attention to our lives falling apart right before our eyes and it is only until we hit rock bottom. We ask that famous question ” How did I get here?” and moreover, how do I get out of it Now! Too often we go through life without thinking about what we’re are doing and what does it all means. Time does not stand still for no one and for every item not achieved on your to do and bucket list. It appears everyday we are running out of time. Life is being lived, days, weeks, months and years are passing us by and yet we are not living life, life is living us. Although we may not give up on life, we still express our greatest need is to have more time. If it would be left up to us we would like to control time, so we can savior our moments as we create memories. It’s like requesting God to put time in a bottle on our behalf. What we need today is Balance!
Satan is seeking to devour us and he looking for someone who gives him an opening to do so. One of the most important ways he can destroy us is through an imbalanced life. An unbalanced life over a long period of time we send a longstanding invitation to Satan to walk through the door of our life to bring all kinds of problems, chaos, diseases and sicknesses. In 1peter 5:8 Be well balanced… for that enemy of yours the devil, roams around like a lion roaring, seeking someone to seize upon and devour. We can’t allow the enemy to move in to our lives and make himself at home by placing his ugly furniture of lies and doubt in the four corners of our minds.
God desires that our minds be in perfect peace. I realize that a sense of peace is not predicated by our circumstances but by our state of mind. The more you focus on God, His sovereignty and His love for you, everything that is going on around you matters less and less. Find balance in all you do, keep you mind fixed on Christ , regardless of what is happening all around you and keep the enemy away from your door….Rev. Sakinah O’ Kane~Smith
