A met with a young man recently who is passionate about growing in his relationship with God, being a better husband and father, becoming more active in the church and community and excelling in his work.
He’s sensing an internal, self-induced tension to do more and be better in each area of his life.
His question to me was basically, how can he balance all the things he wants to do or feels he needs to be doing?
I certainly understood the question. It’s a pressure I’ve experienced many times in my life, especially during certain seasons. In fact, I’m sensing it again as I entered the empty-nester phase of life.
I gave him one word of advice that has helped me during those seasons. Perhaps you need to hear this as well….
