Sorry this post has been a while in coming, but let’s continue our discussion on making worship a lifestyle.
Yesterday I was dressing my 2.5 yr old son. Specifically we were trying to get his pants on. He was standing up and I was trying to get him to lift his one leg so I could thread his little foot through.
Anyway I asked him to “lean on me” so he could keep his balance and then I sensed a whisper in my heart say “that’s what you are like, everytime you try to do something you lose your balance unless you’re leaning against me.”
Isn’t it true that we stuggle to find balance and funny that the way we try to be balanced is by being more independent, planning better or when things fall apart to try and fix them ourselves.
Instead God is wanting us to worship him through our dependance on him, leaning on him. The only way for us to find balance in this life is to lean on God as he dwells at the center of OUR lives.
Again balance is not going to be found in a list of “priorities” but in a relationship with God when he dwells at the center of our lives.
