Reaching and resting. Getting them in balance is a life-long challenge.
All reaching will wear you out. All resting will make you unproductive.
Paul talks about reaching – pressing toward the mark. But…he also talked about resting – content in every situation.
Jesus set His goals on the cross – always reaching in that direction. But…He rested in the will of His Father.
The only way for balance is to listen for the voice of the Holy Spirit. Only the Spirit knows how much to reach…and how much to rest.
Today…look at your schedule. How much is reaching…how much is resting.
It may be time to take charge of your schedule…look to the Spirit for direction…and find the right balance.
Reaching and resting.
