I am intrigued by the question of why most of us struggle to find balance in a life of prayer and intimacy with Jesus. I could list a dozen reasons--too busy, too many distractions, no discipline, disappointment with God, don't know how, and on and on. But what if I told you that from where I stand, the number one reason we struggle is simply that we're trying too hard? That was the theme of my message--We are the Journey--last week. You can listen to it below. At the end I offer a self-assessment that helps you determine if indeed you are trying too hard. Click here to print it out for yourself, and listen to the message for the explanation and some grace-filled encouragement.
