It’s that wonderful day of the week when I join other word artisans from around the globe to write for five minutes flat.
Today’s Word is COMMIT
I Commit to take better care of myself. Self-care is so much more than a spa day once a month, a night out with good friends, or a mani/pedi. Self-care must encompass intentionality to set healthy boundaries to protect our emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
Self-care requires that we say No to people and things that are detrimental to our sustainable peace and joy. God’s promises of joy, peace, and hope are not automatic, but they’re always available. Sometimes in order for us to experience sustainable joy and peace we must remove the people and things that are stealing it.
I Commit to sustainable Peace and Joy.
The life of discipleship requires that we intentionally dedicate ourselves to honoring God, and in service to others we will advance His kingdom. In order to serve others fully, we must first Commit to take care of ourselves. Self-care is a Commitment to the betterment of ourselves. It’s not selfish or self-centered. Self-care is Self-love.
I Commit to Self-love.
The perfect will of God will not invade or override the free will He has given to us. God gives us the freedom and the the wisdom to make right choices. And right choices lead to right living, and then we are aligned with His will. We have been given the ability to choose and Commit to living according to God’s will.
I Commit to live a Purpose Driven life.
