Yesterday was a day of fresh starts. But wait a minute... hop over and read Lamentations 3:23. This is a good verse to make into a sign and post in your bathroom. In fact, I might just make it into a May for Me project for those of you that are quilters (over on that other blog)..how about that?
Anyway, you are starting over again. Right here. Right now. So...before you begin anything, whether it be a new day, or a project, or a new task what do you do? PLAN it. Well, at least it works out best when you do. And then when you PLAN your day (project, task), you usually COMMIT to get done what you planned. Everyone agree?
Today's Proverbs passage is Proverbs 16:1-3. Take a moment to read that.
If we really take the time to commit the things that we do to God, then we will be letting Him be at work through our thoughts and plans. And if He as it work in them, then we will be secure that we are going in the right direction.
Let's look at a Biblical example. Flip in your Bibles to Ezra 8 and read verses 21-23. What did Ezra do? He just dropped down on the ground right there and prayed not only for his direction but for who else? And how did it turn out for Ezra? You can find the answer in vs 31 of the same chapter.
Spend some time planning your day; and then Commit it to God. I am sure that you will have a good day if you do. Come back late tonight and tell us how your day went.
