“So be content with who you are, and don’t put on airs. God’s strong hand is on you; he’ll promote you at the right time. Live carefree before God; he is most careful with you.”
1 Peter 5:6-7
Recently, I made the decision to give up public speaking for conferences and meetings until God pushes me out the door again. I need new material to excite me enough to put the time and effort into preparing for a presentation. Also, there is a side of me that worries about not being able to make the commitment as happened in April when I had to cancel a small engagement because of a family emergency.
For the past four years, I’ve posted a Daily Meditation Moment on my website and on social media. At the end of each year, I produced a devotional book. Now, I wonder if I’ll do another one next year. Can I make a commitment to write every day in 2017? If God places it on my heart to continue, you’ll be the first to know. God knows what is important and will keep me from just trying to impress someone with what I’ve done in the past.
Lord, thank you for giving me the opportunity to figure out who I am and what I want in life. Amen.
