Ever felt like you’re giving 1,000 pieces of yourself to innumerable demands and desires? Does that ever leave you feeling empty? I know it does for me! I can find myself over-scheduled and over-stressed far too readily. I’ve gone through big efforts to improve this fault of mine and it comes down to being deliberate with my choices and priorities. It’s a daily commitment to the things that set me up for a positive attitude and a fulfilling day.
Your life is a sum of your days, after all. So why not make each one the best you possibly can? It’s a DAILY and DELIBERATE choice to approach life that way.
For me, that all starts with taking time for my relationship with God. I recently came across this statement during a devotional reading of mine – “You cannot have a drive-thru relationship with God. Through daily commitment, we give Christ our all and with it He does the impossible”.
I feel like my life is a whole load of impossible some days…but I can make it through with the daily and deliberate choice to commit myself to Him – and through Him to my family, to my work, to my health and body as a temple, to my relationships, to kindness…and the list goes on. Like I said, that is me personally and it makes a world of difference for my day to day life.
Whatever sets you and your days up for success, commit to it. Daily. Deliberately. It adds up to your life.
Your Turn – What is something you try to commit to daily and deliberately to better your day? Or what is something you would like to commit to more deliberately?
