Commit Your Works

Yes! Yes! Yes! Have you ever found yourself as a YES person? The one who always has an affirmative response to a request. Can you take me to the mall to look for a new dress? Yes. Can you take me to get a haircut? Yes. Can you pick up a pack of chicken wings on your way home? Yes. Can you take the dog to get her shots? Yes. Can you lead the next bible study? Yes. Can you loan me $40? Yes. Can I come stay with you for a few weeks, until I get myself on me feet? Yes.

Have you ever wondered why you feel over-committed, overwhelmed and tired all the time? Although we often get asked to do some very important things, it’s more important that we do the things that God has called us to do. The trick is knowing when to say YES and when to say NO. Seek God’s guidance, especially as the seasons of life change. He will lead you in the path that He desires of you. Take only that path that allows you to give your Best Yes. Do not over-commit. Embrace Proverbs 16:3. “Commit thy works unto the Lord, and thy thoughts shall be established.”

Be sure that every action you take is committed back to God. No matter what comes up and what decision you need to make, depend on God. Allow God to be in charge. It is then that the things you have planned with take place and will succeed. You will walk in peace.

Are you committing your works to God?

It is the time of year of growing, planning, reading, thinking, and so much more.

This is an especially challenging year for me. I, yes I - well at least figuratively speaking, will be graduating 🎓 from 8th grade and also 12th grade. Yes, lots of big accomplishments. I'm excited and nervous, all at the same time.

But I am also starting a feel a little overwhelmed. As I started this school year, I accepted a new responsibility. I agreed to read all of the books 📚 that are needed to fulfill the 8th grade Language Arts requirements. Yes, this was completely voluntarily. I am not quite sure what I was thinking, though I am pretty sure the words spit out of my mouth before my mind knew what was happening. I guess I figured that was the price of good parenting. What even is 'good parenting' anyway?

At any rate, I have start…
