Out of Balance

The washing machine is going to town in the laundry room, the rattling and whining echoes through the house. Something is off balance in the workings of the machine. Yes, it still works; the clothes will be clean when they come out. But, the noise is bad and from what the Internet “experts” say this noise could be the sign of something serious going on in the machine. It is quite apparent that something needs to be done.

Life is like this washing machine. Things can be spinning around perfectly when suddenly things go out of whack. An off kilter life makes a lot of noise. Troubles at work, frustrations at home, minor annoyances creating big blow ups; all can be signs of an out of balance life. Ignoring these noises won’t make them go away. Ignoring them will just cause the noise to increase until the life breaks down.

So what’s the cure when life is out of balance? Searching for the source of the noise is the best way to start. Take the cover off your life and look at the inner workings. When you find the imbalance that is where you need to focus your energies.

Proverbs 14:30 A sound heart is life to the body
