We hear so much about achieving balance in our life as women and leaders yet is this what we should really be after? What would it look like if we could ditch balance and pursue surrender instead? Is it possible that surrender might replace our overwhelm with peace?
In Episode 34, we discussed the question of whether balance is even possible. In this conversation, Holly and I discuss how to ditch balance for surrender. We provide some practical strategies for doing so, along with a free resource to help you take action.

What does it look like when we are not surrendered to God’s will, or when we are striving for balance, or when we are not spending our time on the things that matter most?
3 Ways to Reduce Overwhelm as a LeaderSet up your life:
Remember the goal of life is not to be viewed by the world as perfect or having it all together but to have an audience of one.
To walk in surrender to God means you will not be focused on what everyone else thinks or trying to achieve a perfect balance in your life.
Your worth is not dependent on what you do or how well you do it. God has assigned your worth already. He has taken care of 100% of your salvation and nothing you do can add to that to make you more loved.
Conversely, not having it all or even not handling life well does not make you less worthy or loved by God. We love God and therefore we want to please him as an act of worship and to bring him glory. Taking care of the things, responsibilities, and people he has entrusted us with is our act of worship in response to his beautiful gift and his unfathomable love for us.Key Quotes from Episode:
“This is not about your feelings. This is about what God is calling you and surrendering to whatever that is.”
