From “Discipleship and Discipline” by William H. Hicks, copyright March, 2005:

“We are encouraged to strike a balance in our lives. Not a balance between good and evil. We are admonished to shun evil and pursue good. We will be tested; we will not do the testing. That is in the hands of God. Change will occur; our task as disciples, having been made ready, is to be prepared to face the change; to move about upon the balance beam of life with strength, flexibility and creativity. To glide and jump and swirl and spin with the grace of a figure skater upon the slippery surface of our existence with all the Grace that comes from the indwelling of the Holy Spirit- with dignity, respect, faith; faith so that when we jump to execute that triple toe loop (because it is in the program of our life), then we can have confidence that we can land it and that the ice will be there to catch us when we come down. “… and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation, that they would seek God, if perhaps they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; For in Him (God) we live, move and exist…””
