For all of my adult life, I have sought to find healthy balance in how I spend my time.
It has been an elusive goal, that moving shadow that jumps out of my grasp the moment I think I can catch it. I have felt frustrated, and I have felt discouraged and a time or two, resentment has reared its ugly head.
I’ve looked around and wondered how so-and-so can do this or that, but I just can’t get my act together. What is wrong with me? How can I live a balanced life?
With the arrival of a new little one into our family in, Lord-willing, only a few short weeks, I have poured my heart out in prayer, asking God how I can find balance in this season — what I can do or where I can cut back or just how I can change. His answer was surprising — and convicting, and I’m sharing about it over on the Allume blog today. The long and short of it is this: I no longer want a balanced life.

Blessings to you, Friends.

So blessed by your sweet words, Erika! Oh, how often I’ve sought to find that balance too. I love how you show that it’s more about alliance.
Have a wonderful week, friend!
