When the load becomes UNBALANCED –

Good Morning!   A thought to meditate upon today.

I wrote about the importance of leading a balanced life earlier on these blogging pages.   This is a truth that applies in ALL THINGS – EVERY DAY.

We need to be aware of the five components to our lives. Emotional, Spiritual, Social, Physical, and Mental.  Sometimes through no fault of our own they can become unbalanced.


I have a commitment on Thursdays.    It is my Prayer Day. – (no big deal) simply a commitment I made to the Lord.   Prayer as I go every day but Thursday as He leads simply connect and pray.  Sometimes the journey takes me to issues, people and lives I had not even thought about.  It can be long – it can be short – it can be quite a journey BUT everything is RELEASED.   Nothing is retained.  Yesterday and I’m not sure why exactly but much happened that needed an immediate response.   Packages arrived (exciting stuff all the beautiful things connected with my recent publication of a Meditation Book and the local  novel)  phone calls – Issues connected with the middle east – local disasters homes destroyed – then a beautiful card from our local vet arrived.   A picture like our dog who died earlier this week.  So beautiful!  We are saddened and understand your loss.

This world is full of the big very, very important issues and many of our lives have much we should or must accomplish or attend to.   In that moment I felt as if my load for the day had become unbalanced. I simply wanted to emotionally respond to everything. Simply sit and cry.      BUT………..

When I reassessed my day I knew what indeed was unbalanced.   The Physical was overwhelmed. I walked.  I’m older now so power walking is not an option but surely turning off everything – no phone, everything but simply moving releasing, stretching feeling the sun, unscrambling everything letting it fly heavenwards both the good, the bad and the incomprehensible.  Concentrating on the physical even in my limited way.

WOW!   When the balance was restored I am astonished how then I could flow and simply be as God designed.  Never losing the caring for needs of others, but BALANCE of personal, family and other components as well.

Something to think about.

Know you are loved! shared joke

Never forget what He gives you to carry is always shared by Him. His yoke is easy and balanced.   We have a responsibility to keep the balance in our own ‘stuff’.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.

    Oh thank you Faye! I’m feeling a bit convicted in this area of the physical. Holding down a full time and at times stressful job, trying to write, and all the other relationships in life, exercise is always the first to take a back seat. Isn’t it amazing how all the components you mentioned are connected? Thanks again.
