Work Balance – Is there such a thing?

I can accept failure. Everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.

– Michael Jordan

Great quote!

I’ll have to say I’m a hard worker – sometimes to the detriment of my family and myself.

A workaholic one may say. Most definitely I’m not a slacker.

One could say that I need to find a balance.

How do I find balance especially when Scripture tells us:

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, (Colossians 3:23 NIV)

But I take that verse a little overboard at times.

And then when I work with someone that does not have the same work ethics I have…well needless to say it is difficult for me.

I ask you…What is the best way to handle such situations?

How do you handle them?

I don’t pretend to have the answers, in fact I have more questions than answers.

But one thing I know is I need your prayers to find balance, to work diligently but to know when to let it go and to have me time, family time, and most definitely spiritual time.

Also I need to learn not to take things so seriously.

Pray with me – not only for myself, but for those of you that deal with the same or similar struggles.

BALANCE…a good thing.

Blessings, Susan

  1. I’ll pray for you to get more balance between work and personal life. Please pray that I will find a church that wants a Faith Link team.(ASAP)
