Imagine that your life is like a wheel with eight spokes. A wheel will keep moving if one of your spokes is broken, but if multiple spokes are not balanced, your wheel will collapse. In a balanced life, each spoke supports one another. They work together to create a balanced life. In this series, Tim and Kimberly are covering the eight categories they recommend balancing in our lives: our minds, our emotions, our spirits, our bodies, our social lives, our finances, our unique purposes, and our homes.
Welcome back to our series on living a balanced life. Last week, Tim and Kimberly shared the sixth area in our lives to find balance: our finances. This week they are continuing the conversation by discussing how to find balance in our purpose.
We will not experience balance in our lives until we have a driving purpose. God has given each of us a divine, unique, and intentional purpose. When your purpose aligns with God's purpose, your life becomes in sync in meaning.
Whatever you discover that you love doing and fuels your spirit is most likely the way God has wired you and is a part of your purpose. It’s not a coincidence that you are naturally gifted in art, or are a math wiz, or you can easily speak in front of crowds. Your natural skills and abilities were given to you by God for a purpose and can be used to bring glory to God.
Ecclesiastes 3:1 says, "For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.” Our purpose can change throughout our lives, but each season prepares us for the next. Our purpose when we’re young and single is different from our purpose when we are married with kids and is different from our purpose when we are empty nesters. Your purpose can mold and adjust as your life molds and adjusts to changes.
Romans 8:28 says, "And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose."
If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, your overriding purpose is to glorify God and to seek what His pleasure is for your life. That life is going to bring the greatest amount of joy into your life. First Corinthians 10:31 says, "So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”
So what is our purpose in the eyes of God? Tim and Kimberly end the podcast by explaining God’s purpose for man. Tune into the episode to hear the full conversation.
Join us next week as we finish our series by discussing how to find balance in our home life.
