            Balance

            Thank you for being an awesome God.  I pray today for wisdom in the area of balance.  I have a habit of going from one extreme to another.  When that happens I start to lose my peace.  I get so excited over a new project that I forget to let You, God, have the control over my life.  I do things of my own power instead of letting You lead me through Your Spirit.  My heads knows this but I still try too hard doing things under my own power alone without you.  Help me, Jehovah, to pray to You every day about this issue of balance.  Keep me from going back, and forth, from one end of the spectrum to the other - out of balance.  I know it is a sign of spiritual immaturity when we cannot practice balance in our lives.  Please help me to remember the scripture in Eph 4:4 (NIV) that says, “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back by the waves and blown here and there by every wind...” I do not want to stay a spiritual infant but I want to become mature.  Give me the discernment I need to see when I am out of Your will and remind me to keep a balanced life.  Through Jesus’ name, amen.
