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?

As I spent some time reflecting on 2018, I specifically took time to reflect on my running journey.

It was such an amazing year. The highlights can be found on my running blog. In a nutshell, there were ups and downs. There were achievements and setbacks. But through it all, there was so many life-transforming moments. One specific date of reflection was October 30. It was a day of wounding, both physically and figuratively.

I had an evening event at work so I decided to start the day with a run. You know, I wanted to get my blood pumping early. The problem was that I waited late in the morning to start, so I decided to do a quick out and back 2-mile run. As I was nearing my finish, I was running at a pretty decent spe…
