Balance is listed 17 times in the Bible.
Meaning of Balance: an even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady:
As our world seems to be spinning out of control. Most of us are helplessly staying locked up in our homes as we watch the details of the coronavirus play havoc with our, health, our finances, our sanity? My fragmented thoughts drifted to the word balance. And how the scales are shifting with every new moment that ticks by? How do we cope in the days and challenges ahead?? How do we bring our individual world into some type of order and balance ... When my thoughts drifted to the word balance? I immediately thought of a game I play with my granddaughter. We stand arms stretched out from our shoulders, we lift one foot 3 or 4 inches from the floor and hold it as long as we can. A great test of balance and a true challenge between generations. lol. We normally can hold that position for approximately 1-3 minutes. I do believe this is a good example of how many of us relate to God. We try to balance life, health, and love on our own? We struggle and think we can do it without God’s help, a least for a little while. But eventually, we will lose our balance and touch the ground and lose and or possibly take a major fall. So, I ask myself how can we avoid this?? And again, my heart always brings me to realize it’s Him!! He is always the answer 😁. However, this word unveiled a bit more information... He is our assurance, He is our lifeline, He is our love... But in order to bring all the elements that affect our life, into a beautiful stable balance. He MUST be in the center of your heart, then even if the scales tip as our life challenges arise. He will be there to hold you while you work through any situation. He will love you with a Love that will fill your every need. He will bring a balance to every facet of your Life!! Run to Him, make him the center of your heart, and ultimately the core of your life. It’s His promise of LOVE that will stabilize your world.
Tip the scales in your favor!
We should be balanced by loving God and enjoying earthly blessings while not putting any hope in them. Timothy 6:17.
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; Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
