Ever feel like you don't have enough time in the day to complete everything? I think this is a struggle for all of us from time to time. In raising my family, I'm finding that there are so many good things to get involved in. There's sports, horseback riding, music lessons, dance lessons, home school co-ops, church work, volunteering, friends and family! Good grief, no wonder so many of us are burned out!
With six children, I am amazed at the pressure that's out there to let them get involved in all of these different activities. But you know, if my kids each got involved in a separate event, I'd be running at least six times a week! That's just too much time out and about.
There is a fine line that we must walk in today's fast paced society. God wants us to use our talents for His glory, but we need to be acutely aware of His timing. I've been struggling to find that balance lately. But with God's help, and a willing heart, I know I will find that balance.
Proverbs 11:1 A false balance is an abomination to the LORD: but a just weight is his delight.
