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?

A Small Tear

I could barely see. 
My eyes felt itchy and irritated. 
I thought I was tired from a full day of work. Sitting at a computer. Taking meetings with clients. Staff meetings. All the work of a typical Friday. But the day was not over. I still had an hour left in my two and a half hour drive down the two-lane, tree surrounded road to Tallahassee. 
I was rubbing my eyes and blinking so much to stop the itch. Nothing was working. Nothing was soothing me. 
I drove in discomfort as long as I could......then I reached my breaking point. 
When I arrived at a stopping point in my travels, I removed my contact lenses. Before I replaced the contacts with glasses, I took a look at the lenses. 
If only I would have recognized the signs sooner....
The left lens had a tear. 
Side note: The thing I have yet to grasp is how a contact lens that is inside the eye gets a tear without even being touched. If you can explain how this happens, feel free to drop the knowledge in the comment section.
