Balance in Life


Balance in life starts with priority
Putting God first, as my authority
Situations begin falling into place
As I focus daily to seek His face

In the times I get off track with God
My journey becomes difficult to trod
I am nothing apart from His direction
Like a computer without a connection

Other factors affect balance in life
Rest and relaxation will ease strife
Getting out for an extra fun activity
Releases stress and adds flexibility

Reading a good book, not too deep
Or listening to music as I fall asleep
Before I doze, going to God in prayer
Helps to free my mind from all cares

You may come up with more ways
To help you throughout your days
But only by having God on your side
Results in victory with the Spirit inside

God works out all things for our good
That verse is so often misunderstood
He alone knows for us what is best
Joy comes in trusting Him for the rest

Psalm 28:7 (NIV)
The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart
trusts in him, and I am helped.  My heart leaps
for joy and I will give thanks to him in song.
