"For years, I tried to juggle all the elements of life. I knew there was a God call on my life to be in ministry, and yet I also knew it could never be at the expense of my family. When I tried to juggle all the boxes, I learned the hard way that it is difficult to keep them all from crashing down. So I no longer have boxes for marriage, ministry and motherhood. Instead, God has shown me that there is a divine order for my life.
Instead of trying to make sure that everything is balanced (there is no prescribed formula for balance), God showed me that I am to break of the box mentality and instead seek Him for divine order for my life. Each day differs from the day before, The dynamics change, but the call on my life doesn't. Marriage, motherhood, and ministry are all cohesively part of that call. God anoints us for our entire call." -Darlene Zschechexcerpts of gifts of this crazy wonderful calling:
