The Balancing Act

At times, life can feel like a delicate balancing act. We have several fragile areas in our life that we are trying to keep steady and stable, with each one gently poised against another. Accompanying this is often an underlying fear that if one eggshell topples over, all the others will tumble over as well, creating a terrible mess. We know that if those beads were to spill out and get mixed up, it would take us forever to sort them all out again. In addition, there would be the embarrassment of having others see our mess and thinking how inadequate we are because we can’t even manage our own lives. So what do we do? Join the circus to improve our balancing skills? No, I say we hand the whole thing over to God, and let Him be the balancing force. Of course, we do our part to the best of our ability, and if there are a few spills, it must mean that some re-shifting is necessary to create more harmony and balance in our lives.
