Going through life, I have found that it takes balance and discernment. You need to know how to do certain things and when to do them.
There is holding on and there is letting go.
There is pursuing and there is waiting.
There is scolding and there is encouraging.
There is going forth and there is staying behind.
There is stepping in and there is keeping out.
There are many more things that are done at different times and with different balance. It takes discernment to get through them.
So how do I discern? I ask God for discernment, and listen to what He says is right. How do I do this? Talk with God, read God’s Word, and listen to godly counsel.
I’m still not very experienced with any of this. But I’m learning. And this is a process that never really stops.
