Guarding Space in Our Lives

“I have discovered that when my life and my heart get too crowded, there is not enough room for God.”

Exactly! The devotional I am reading really hit the nail on the head. Regardless of the calling that God has placed on your life (teacher, pastor, missionary, plumber) we need to guard the space in our lives that is meant for God. Personally, I struggle with balance. You?

Balancing stones









An unbalanced life is too crowded for God. It is so easy to relegate our spirituality to religious activity when all He really wants is to spend time with us. He wants to wipe away every tear. God longs to share every hurt and celebrate every victory. The Father yearns to wrap His strong arms around us, bringing the peace and balance we so desperately need. (The Simple Things, Mary Southerland)

We can find that balance when we prioritize and seek God first. He’ll enable us to sort out the rest. Begin, and end, with our Father.
