In order to maintain healthy lifestyles, we have to prioritize our lifestyle goals. As children of the Highest King, we know that we are to love self and others. We are to respect and appreciate our personal viewpoints as well as others. We are to spend time with Christ, self, and others. Priorities, priorities, priorities. When do I place my personal needs above others, when do I pray, when to I serve, when do I rest? These are some questions that help us answer the who, what, when and where questions needed before we prioritize our daily schedules.
Balancing our lifestyles by prioritizing our lifestyles, mandate us to walk, love, and serve in the “love margin”.
The love margin helps us to maintain or restore wellness balance by:
The “no” word: Saying no allows us to make the right choice in Christ by saying yes to God’s choices.
Regain control in our lives: When we place God at the center of our lives we will not whom to associate with, what to purchase, how to serve others, when to schedule activities, and where to shop.
Accept the “no” responses from others: By accepting that all things work together for our good, we will stop taking these personally. This will eliminate giving energy to the thought that everyone is out to get us.
Living within our God-honoring balance and margin lifestyles helps us to not to be judgmental, fearful of failure, and reminds us
“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew 19:26 NIV).
