I’m learning that showing up is a big deal. No one likes a flaky, only when it suits me kind of person.
Jesus said, “Let your yes be yes and your no be no.”
I try to only commit to what I can reasonably do. Overcommitting was a major problem in my past and it led to me not being able to do anything all that well.
As much as I love to help people, jamming my schedule full of stuff only meant that there was no way I could actually be of much help.
I think about the requests that come my way now.
Keeping a calendar is the best way I’ve found to keep from overcommitting.
Whatever you need to do to show up when you agreed to show up, do it!
Being faithful in your commitments speaks volumes.
Hesitation is the leading cause of road kill.
Making decisions can be tough. We all want a road map, the quickest and surest way to success.
There’s nothing wrong with planning–unless your planning leads to nowhere.
At some point, you need to make a decision.
Most people will agree with this statement. I can hear the amens now…
Our actions tell a different story.
We become afraid.
We get hit by a bus going 70 miles an hour.
When you’re scared of commitment (just pick a side of the road already!) there are consequences.
No one wants to become road kill.
I’m convinced that the secret of confident people is not that they have it all figured out.
They’re simply willing to commit.
Provision follows commitment.
I am a firm and faithful believer in this truth after this weekend.
God has answered my prayers about many of the key aspects of my move to Tulsa in January.
It’s been so cool to see how His hand and influence has guided me-in many unexpected ways-to the answers I needed.
There’s so much more that I want to say, but I want to use today’s post as a way of saying thanks to God.
Living by faith is a great adventure.
I want to leave you with three recommendations:
- Be as specific as you can be in your prayers.
- Ask others to stand in faith–meaning they pray in agreement–with you.
- Don’t be unwilling to share what you’re believing for when it comes up in conversation. Who knows if the person(s) you’re chatting with could be the answer to your prayers?
College Weekend gave me a small taste of what is to come.
I can’t wait to see how this faith adventure unfolds!
