“Commit your actions to the Lord,

    and your plans will succeed.”

Proverbs 16:3

I grew up believing in my teen years that to be doing something for the kingdom of God, required me doing something (and I’m being completely honest here) huge and something that got people’s attention.

I needed to be impacting the thousands and no less. I needed to have a huge platform, and to be ministering publicity on a consistent basis. Boy, was I  wrong.

I look at my life now and realize that I’m still making an impact on this world, and just because it doesn’t look the way I thought it would, doesn’t mean it isn’t as important.

God blesses faithfulness, and if we can’t be faithful in the small things, we definitely won’t be faithful in the big things.

So commit everything you do to the Lord, because it’s important.

From wiping a snotty nose in the nursery class, to picking up kids on your church bus route.

From raising your kids, to taking a lost and struggling young person under your care and guidance.

From worshiping every service with your whole heart, to supporting your pastor.

Whatever this season of your life  requires of you, commit it to God and you will succeed.

God, take what I have today and use it for Your glory. Some days I don’t feel like I have much to offer, but I surrender it all to You today.
