Finding Balance

According to dictionary.com there are 31 different ways to define/use the word balance.  I like 31 flavors but not like this.  Ice cream is one thing but I’m just trying to find balance in my life right now.  No wonder I’m struggling.  I don’t feel so bad now.  Irony of all this, yesterday I was craving ice cream; today all it took was a little bit of chocalate to cross my lips and I was satisfied. 

I wish I had more to share tonight but honestly, I’ve got nothing.  There are days like this, it’s just too personal to share and that’s o.k. 

“When he reached a certain place, he stopped for the night because the sun had set.  Taking one of the stones there, he put it under his head and lay down to sleep.  He had a dream in which he saw a stairway resting on the earth, with its top reaching to heaven, and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.  There above it stood the Lord, and he said: ‘I am the Lord, the God of your father Abraham and the God of Isaac, I will give you and your descendants the land on which you are lying.  Your descendants will be like the dust of the earth, and you will spread out to the west and to the east, to the north and to the south.  All peoples on earth will be blessed through you and your offspring.  I am with you and will watch over you wherever you go, and I will bring you back to this land.  I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.’  When Jacob awoke from his sleep he thought, ‘Surely the Lord is in this place, and I was not aware of it.'”  –Genesis 28:11-16

    Hi sweet friend,
    I’m home sick after one of our youth trips and enjoyed catching up with your blogs. Wish I could come visit but will keep my distance. So glad to hear good news! Keep resting in Him. I’ll keep praying that you feel peace in the palm of His hands. Love you.

    “…surely God was in this place and I was not aware if it.”…profound.

    Know that I am continuing to keep up with you and your progress. Continuing to remember you. Thankful and rejoicing over the good news you’re having as you forge ahead. Believing that He alone is God above all our circumstances. LOVE YOU.
