Pray for our Nation

This is so good.  It's also eye-opening and scary.  We must pray for our nation!

Well, my word for this year is "Balance".   It's kind of a weird word.  But it really fits how I'm thinking about things.  I need to balance work and play (or work and rest).  We need to live with a balanced budget. ;)  Then there's balance between extremes... not living in the past or worrying about the future.  I need to be in the center.  There's a praise chorus from a few years ago, "Jesus, be the center".  I need to have Him be the focal point, the center from which I find my true balance.  I haven't yet thought through all the implications of this word, but I'm thinking this is where I need to be.  

1. a state of equilibrium or equipose;  equal distribution of weight, amount
2. something used to produce equilibrium; counterpoise
3. mental steadiness or emotional stability; habit of calm behavior, judgment
4. a state of bodily equilibrium:  He lost his balance and fell down the stairs.
