Hold Fast Inspiration For the Week:

Harmony, balance, and rhythm. They're the three things that stay with you your whole life.  Without them civilization is out of whack.  And thats why an oarsman, when he goes out in life, he can fight it, he can handle life.  That's what he gets from rowing.
~ George Yeoman Pocock

This is an excerpt from the book titled "The Boys in the Boat."  It's about nine Americans and their epic quest for Gold at the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Hold Fast Challenge:

Ask yourself, what areas in my life are out of harmony, balance, and rhythm?

Is it financial spending?  Maybe it's health and well-being, or something else entirely.  It may be difficult to identify a specific area that is out of harmony, balance, and rhythm.  But easier to say the words; my life is out of harmony, balance, and rhythm.  This is the time to look deep and honestly at yourself and without judgement.  We are all works in progress.

... Don't think you are better than you really are.  Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourself by the faith God has given us. -Romans 12:3
