A balanced life is what we all strive to achieve – spiritually, emotionally, and physically. God wants us to strive for balance in our personal lives. He wants us to “live in harmony with one another.”
Living a well-rounded life gives us the chance to make the most of every opportunity God sends our way. The only way to create a balanced life is to have Christ at the center of it and to do that we need to “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.”
One key to a balanced life if to focus on the present. Do not worry about yesterday or tomorrow. “Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” ~Matthew 6:34. We should learn from the past, live in the present and plan for the future.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing, a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.” ~Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
