The simple principles of this verse impact my life every time I apply them:
Commit your works to the LORD,
And your thoughts will be established.
I’m self-employed, and as a result I have multiple roles with interconnecting tasks. Often, the tasks are not only interconnected, but dependent upon each other. When it’s hard to figure out which vital task to do first, it’s easy to get stuck on something trivial, or to procrastinate.
However, every time I stop and pray, in just a few minutes I not only have an ordered to-do list in my mind, but also a real enthusiasm for the tasks. You see, my Father owns and operates the Universe, and my work is part of the family business. And He not only wants me to succeed, He helps me. It’s so cool. 🙂
The only thing more amazing than all that is how many times I still don’t do it. LOL I reason to myself, “Well, I know I have to this, so I’ll get it out of the way.” Then I get distracted, often for the rest of the day. Not a good plan.
Now, here’s a New Year’s resolution that covers all the good intentions: Start the work day asking God for Wisdom.
