I was taking my laundry off the line and saw this guy out there. What is he doing? I don't know...standing on a surf board with a paddle. But that's not the point, the point is: look at that balance!
Watching him paddle away out to the open sea, all I could think about was how hard it must be to stay upright on a surfboard like that.
Balance can be a tricky thing. I made a mental list of all the things that my life requires balancing:
school birthday parties...who to tell yes, and who to tell no....there are 2 this week!
pay checks....must the boys eat 3 times a day?
never ending laundry
church members needs....real vs. irrational
community needs....real vs. irrational
not to mention my need to finish the "Mark of the Lion" series by Francine Rivers :)
I may not be on a surf board, but sometimes it does feel just as hard.
Thankfully the truth is:
Cast your cares on the Lord and He will sustain you; He will never let the righteous fall.
