Pondering a decision

I am rolling along with my second blog post. WooWee! Had a brief devotion this morning:

Proverbs 16:3 Commit your works to the Lord and your thoughts will be established.

Meditating on that reminded me of the importance of committing my works to the Lord first...then thinking about it. I often think and ponder over stuff and then say, "oh yeah what do you think God? Here are some of my wonderful thoughts?"

COMMIT: To give in trust; to put into the hands or power of another; to entrust
ESTAB'LISHED: Set; fixed firmly; founded; ordained; enacted; ratified; confirmed

Committing my works to God first will help me to:
  1. Funnel my thought life in the direction God has ordained for me
  2. Have a firmly fixed foundation before I spend my mental energy frivolously
  3. Build my dependence on the Holy Spirit's guidance
  4. Be more fruitful with my time, gifts, and money.
  5. Be a more decisive leader at home, church, and my business.

God may I maintain the order of first things and entrust you with my plans so that my thoughts will be pointed in your direction. AMEN
