Balancing Relationships

I desire balance, yet it escapes me again today. What of it – where did it go? It is defined as “a state of equilibrium; equal distribution of weight.” Balance is “the ability to decide an outcome by throwing one’s influence/support to one side or the other.” In life, the rest that we call balance is our ongoing adjustments of endless relationships, movements, and accounts. It is the constant correction of imbalances that we will, hopefully, get better and better at controlling. Here a few ways the Lord is teaching me about balance – especially in the area of relationships.
