Proverbs 16:3- “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed”
Do I like being asked to reconsider my ways, my thoughts, my decisions and my actions?
What prompted me to think this way was my recent trip with a budget airlines. As always, I had an irritating passenger in the seat behind me, who kept on kicking and the last time I had someone do this for the entire journey, I promised myself I would speak up the if it happened again. And this time being that ‘next time’, I peeked behind halfway through my journey and I noticed this guy who was definitely above 6 feet cramming his legs with much effort in order to not disturb me.
This uncomfortable nudge was a reminder for a lot of things for me.
Are my thoughts pleasing to God?
Have I committed my thoughts and dreams and everything that I consider mine to be His?
Do I feel like he knows everything then why pray?
Well how would our closest friend or family know what’s on our mind unless we convey it to them? God wants us to talk to him, tell him our needs and worries and just commit to him in everything we do.
Did we get any uncomfortable nudge today?
Guess it’s time to take the uncomfortable nudge it as a gentle reminder that “God loves you” and he’s there for you no matter what.
On your loneliness days and darkest nights there’s a Father up above who knows your needs and wants even before you ask for them. He’s asking for a relationship. Are you ready for it?
Lord, thank you for the nudges that you have been sending across that I haven’t noticed. I commit my ways to you. Be with me in everything I do, I give you the full control of my life. Amen.
