My house has gotten dirtier.
My trucks are not washed.
My lawn needs mowed.
I need a shower.
My faith has grown.
I love even more.
When I have 10 minutes with my wife alone, that time is more precious than gold.
Increasing the workload in your life seems to lead to some interesting conclusions. It shows you where your priorities are at. It shows you what you care about. Now I am not this shining saint of a dad, nor am I a "superman" of faith. I am simply a human being and a dad, and even though I desperately need some sleep I love every minute of it. (Well almost every minute.)
How do we keep our faith alive when our kids are screaming and we have to get worship ready for youth service?
How do we keep our Love burning strong for our spouses when we barely have minutes to spend with them?
How do we balance?
Matthew 6:33 - says to seek God first. This gives us the road map for balance. Put God first and all things will fall into place.
I am ever learning how to balance.
