Hi Treasured One, 

A new year. A new beginning. I am always ready for fresh starts – how about you?  

As you turn your eyes to 2019 and open your heart for all God has in store, find focus so that you choose the life you want to live instead of being carried away by the rushing currents of “busy.”  

In our social media-saturated world, it’s easy for me to fall into comparing. Can you relate? But if I am driven by “standards” instead of directed by the leading of the Holy Spirit, I might just miss out on mining the resources and abilities God has given me.   

Our New Year’s resolutions are usually not solutions because they are driven by worldly standards or standards from others instead of directed by the Holy Spirit. 

But when we pause and seek our Creator for our compass, we find true contentment by gaining confidence to let go of chaos.  

Boundaries bring balance.  

 

The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places; 

surely I have a delightful inheritance. 

I will praise the Lord, who counsels me; 

even at night my heart instructs me. 

I keep my eyes always on the Lord. 

With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken (Psalm 16:6-8) 

 

Keeping my balance by keeping my eyes on Jesus and not on “standards” keeps me steady to run the race God has planned for me.  That is so easy to say – much harder to put into practice.  

But we can do it together. Welcome to the Treasured Ministries Weekly Word Series: BALANCE. Here is what you can expect from our upcoming series: 

  • Uncover God’s principals for living with balance and how to put this into practice with a weekly devotion sent to your inbox on Monday and a corresponding Facebook live message on Thursdays.

  • Pause to pray about God direction for your year instead of quickly crafting goals that leave you feeling defeated.

  • Define distractions that can knock you off balance and how to set boundaries to stay steady. 

  • Find community with women just like you on our Live Treasured Tribe Talk. Join us Thursdays at 8:00 PM EST on our Facebook Page or catch the replay later.

In 2019, find the freedom to be the woman God created you to be.   

Can’t wait to start this new series with you. God has great things in store. Here’s to a great New Year! 

Blessings, 

Aliene
