Theme: Stick to it
At the start of this year, I challenged myself each morning to not only spend time in morning devotions with Abba, but to also write something He was teaching me. So far, it has been challenging. This morning for example, I woke up later than usual and because of an unpleasant dream, I did not wake up feeling restful or even motivated to have any kind of devotion.
What I have just described, is important to me and does have merit. But in the grand scheme of things, it fades in comparison to the commitment made to spend time with God in worship and through writing. He is unchanging and certainly deserves my focus, attention and gratitude. He also is worthy of me keeping my promises to Him – whether I feel up to it or not.
So, I will continue each day to stick to the commitment I made to Him. In fact, this is a win win situation. How can I lose if I take the time to offer praise and adoration by intentionally focusing on the only One who is worthy of it all?
“God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7.
Question for ponder: Have you ever stuck with something and in the end, was glad you did?
