Chestnut Ridge Church
Balance–Part 3
Too much to do. Too little time. Too many choices. Too many expectations. Sometimes, it’s just too much. In today’s world, it seems like a badge of honor to be busy. But is it really God’s will that we constantly be under stress and deadlines? Is there a better way to navigate life? Throughout this series, we’ll explore biblical strategies for maintaining a healthy balance in our lives, and how to deal with life when it’s simply too much.

Solution: Know is the new yes. Rule of Life.
Know is the new yes

Know—KNOW—is the new yes.
