Our commitment is to our Lord Jesus Christ: to love and serve Him. All we do as unto the Lord calls for our commitment as well. Because it’s our heart’s desire, it meets opposition, and can be a struggle. As we seek the Lord for His wisdom, He shows us what to watch for and put in place to hold our priorities in order.
Distractions battle our commitment and our resolve. Diversions blindside us and lead our thoughts away from our focus. Unexpected events sidetrack us and take us by surprise. We don’t realize how much time we can lose. We then become disheartened because we have not completed what we had set out to do, often leading to resentment against people who might have distracted us unintentionally. The desires of our flesh can also lead us off course. Time stealers rob us of our potential.
Sharing our plans with others helps us have healthy boundaries. Keeping a daily list of what we plan to do keeps us on point. Going over our day brings light to what to watch for in the future. Asking the Lord to reveal the changes we should make give us insights. Our steadfastness increases by His grace, from glory to glory.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
