And while that might sound a little painful, I have some really great news:You can balance your life account and live in the black. God wants that for you. He’ll even supply the necessary funds. Think of that. What if I told you that someone at your bank was interested in providing an ongoing supply of resources for your account—for free? No service charge, no interest. You’d be skeptical, I bet, just like me.
But if you are curious about the biblical reality, I must tell you that it is true in regard to your schedule. God has a lifestyle of positive balance in mind where your time is concerned. He intends for you to have rest and joy and pleasure in abundance. And He will give you what you need to make it happen.
Enough of everything. Even time. The book of Ecclesiastes tells us that God “has made everything beautiful in its time” and that “there is nothing better for [human beings] than to be joyful and to do good as long as they live; also that everyone should eat and drink and take pleasure in all his toil—this is God’s gift to man” (3:11-13).
