Regaining Balance is a devotional journal designed to guide its readers through a season of spiritual revival. Each day of the 91-day journal encourages involvement in a handful of spiritual disciplines in order to help the reader regain focus and balance in every aspect of life.
Randy Sawyer graduated from Free Will Baptist Bible College, Nashville, TN in 1978. He received his M.Div from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, NC in 1995. He received his D.Min. in 2001 from Reformed Theological Seminary in Charlotte, NC.
Dr. Sawyer has been in ministry since 1977, serving in numerous capacities, including associate pastor, pastor, and professor. He has conducted over 400 revivals and numerous Bible and evangelism conferences. He has also been a leading Faith Trainer as a pastor whose church implements this tremendous outreach ministry.
Regaining Balance is divided into three sections: "Get Fit for Life," "Journey With Jesus," and "Praying the Psalms." "Get Fit for Life" focuses on various passages throughout Scripture, which give insight into the purpose and practice of spiritual disciplines. "Journey With Jesus" examines the steps of Christ to the cross and beyond. This portion of the study helps the reader understand His devotion to God and deep love for the lost. The final section, "Praying the Psalms," takes the reader through several psalms to help him or her understand the power of a consistent and honest prayer life.
As the reader progresses through the study, the daily activities will include several of these key spiritual disciplines:
-Solitude-a life in communion with itself
-Prayer-a life in fellowship with its Creator
-Meditation-a life in harmony with the Spirit
-Bible Reading and Memorization-a life of contact with Gods will and work
-Fasting-a life in balance with its needs
-Worship-a life in accord with its purpose
-Accountability-a life in network with other disciples
-Service-a life in connection with those in need
