This week I was able to attend one of our Arizona Assembly of God District sponsored events.
Steve and Marjorie Harris, our District pastors took a few minutes to speak on the subject of balance and I wanted to jot down a few bullet points of their message.
First Steve Showed us a video called “Balancing Rocks”
– “Balance is critical for our life and ministry to work correctly.”- Steve Harris
Steve told us that ministry is the big rock on top and all the smaller rocks (home, family, finances and time) have a lot to do with how you are able to balance the big rock of ministry.
If the smaller rocks are out of balance then the larger rock of ministry will be off as well.
Proverbs 16:11 A just balance and scales belong to the LORD; All the weights of the bag are His concern.
Marjorie spoke on how to have balance in your home with three very practical but power points.
1. Guard the time you have with your family
2. Make Tender touch one of the habits of your daily routine.
“Touch is a better language than words.”
3. Find something everyday together that will make you both laugh.
Some of her quotes are keepers.
“One of the most wasted of days is a day without laughter.”
“Laughter is inner jogging.”
“Laughter is an instant vacation.”
I love their honest candid approach to sharing with our ministry team. Steve and Marjorie have been an amazing source of support for my wife and I over the past eight years of ministry in Prescott.
I am very thankful to have them in our circle of friends.
Trying to stay balanced.
Prescott First Assembly of God
