Commitment 101

Vol. 2 Issue 7-August 2014         

"Commit your actions to the Lord, and your plan will succeed”- Proverbs 16:3

There is no better truth, than hearing the truth of the number 1 bookseller: The Bible. I have taken some time this month to look overall at how I am doing and how the ministries are doing that I am a major part of. In all you do there are three ingredients I always recommend for having a successful life, and I like to share them with you. So here they are:
1. Passion                             
2. Commitment                               3. Self-discipline

Let’s look at commitment and how essential it is to what we want in life. I want you to think about that desire you have in your heart, that dream to accomplish the goals that you have set for yourself. That college degree you want, that promotion, that credit card you have said you will pay off, or more important that desire to live for God and to serve God. I am sure there is something you can think of.

Commitment is the force that allows you to finish, long after you might not feel like it. Stay the course and do not give up. “So let’s not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up”- Galatians 6:9

I have to remind myself often times of staying committed, especially when it looks as if I do not see the progress and on top of that the work hours seem to get longer more and more. When feelings start kicking in, I refocus and remember to be led by the spirit and not by emotions. Try it next time you ever feel like giving up.
Thank you for your time and be a blessing to someone today.

A special shout out to YOU, (you know who you are) who have been committed in supporting me as a missionary while serving the community at Crossover Church full-time. That is true commitment!

Much Love to many of you...

The Lord’s eyes range throughout the earth to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to him
— 2 Chronicles 16:9
