October Weekly Devotional - Busyness & Balance

Oct. 02, 2020 @ 7:21 pm

"Oh, that my vexation was weighed and all my calamity laid in the balances!” (Job 6:2 ESV)

Have you lost track of your goals and aspirations? Do you feel helpless, frantic, and powerless to control everyday responsibilities that seem to take on a life of their own? Are your head and heart out of balance with your dreams? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this daily devotional may raise your spirits and encourage you to get back on track.

Out of Balance

When we read the Book of Job in the Bible, we quickly get the impression that here is a man who is out-of-balance. In Chapter Six, Job expresses his frustration with such a precarious existence. He's been thrown into turmoil through no fault of his own and can't seem to get back on track.

Sometimes it helps to inspect your thoughts and feelings and reflect on past experiences. It's what Job repeatedly does as He seeks God for wisdom and enlightenment. Job used the negative situations surrounding his circumstances as opportunities to cry out to God to show him how to get back on course.

When we fall off the rails, no matter the issue or condition in which we find ourselves, we can follow Job's example if we take time to pause, reflect and request help from God to steer us in the right direction.

What can you learn from the Book of Job and the encouragement in this daily devotional message to help you get back on track.

Dear Father, you show us that it is good to stop and take stock of what we are doing when out of balance. Guide and direct me to get back on track.

It’s Here…It’s Here…Online Giving ("Giving" link located upper right corner of the church website) www.sheniafumc.org

Thanks to the COVID-19 Virus our church has been forced to have remote “On-Camera” services on Sunday morning but… the news isn’t all bad. We’ve decided to take advantage of some of the latest technology and offer our members and regular Church-Goers an opportunity to make their regular Sunday Morning Offering ONLINE!

With the help of the new group working with the First National Bank (formerly Century Bank) we now have a direct link for you, sitting at home, to the church to make your offering and regular Tithes. You’ll find a direct link on the Church's Facebook home page AND the Churches Website home page (upper right corner with red arrow) so just click it and select for a one-time giving, set up a regular Tithe, or make a donation and hit submit… It’s really THAT EASY!
