Lord, give me balance.

Between faith in your work and faithfulness in my work,
Between speaking with conviction and hearing with compassion,
Between knowing things and knowing people,
Between speaking truth with winsomeness and saying words of wisdom,
Between working with diligence and resting in providence,
Between leading as a servant and serving as a leader,
Between living in secret for your rewards and letting my light shine for your glory,
Between mourning sin and rejoicing in the cross…

Lord, give me balance.
