How to do you balance God time, family and work time? Its definitely a constant that requires wisdom and has its ups and downs. As I move into a new season of life, as a husband, father and leader in my ministry, I ask these questions more often
More often than not, I have been on the busy side of life. Busy attending my family, busy attending ministry opportunities, often sacrificing my own spiritual and physical health in the process.
Over these four decades of my journey, I have found that there are three things that should never be an afterthought, and cannot be delegated. These are three things I never regret doing in any given day: time with God, time with family (wife, kids) time for exercise. I have failed on all three at different seasons, and had to come back to some kind of balance with the corresponding apologies.
As I plan some of my activities for the next three months, I am looking at Spending the early part of the morning, before the kids wake up alone with God. Then after the kids are in school, Nancy and I spent time reading, reflecting and then we look at our schedules as we are fusing two families into one. And for personal health, I signed up to run a marathon at the end of August.
Just thought I share about these three areas in life, which I personally consider being the lifeline to a healthy, godly and balanced life.
