Do you struggle to find the right balance in your life?
I do.
For instance, I enjoy my family, but want some time and space to myself.
Love my hobbies, but the hate clutter.
Try to plan out long term finances, and how I can get the sofa reupholstered before it’s in shreds.

Sometimes I even struggle in my relationship with God.

As a Christian there’s a gap between what I know and what I actually do.
Between theory and practice.
I like to think of it as the difference between the now and the then.

You read it right, the now and the then.

John, who refers to himself as ‘the one Jesus loved’, tells me this:

“Beloved, (see–that makes me feel better right off the bat, being called Beloved),
NOW we are God’s children,
and what we will be has not yet appeared;
but we know that when he appears we shall be like him,
because we shall see him as he is.
And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

That word purifies describes a process, an ongoing one.
I wish it was a one time event like salvation, but apparently it doesn’t bother God that His children are gonna take a long time to reach maturity.
Maybe He’s OK with it because He’s omniscient and knows His kids will all turn out well.

And He knows the when.
When Jesus returns.
That’s the THEN, so for now I’m hanging on in hope and being purified by the word.

I’d love to hear about what works for you.
How you achieve balance in the practical and spiritual aspects of your life.
How do you maintain your work and home life?
Is there one area that occasionally throws you off-kilter?

AND, do you think women struggle with this more than men?
Or do we just talk about it more?
