Walk, Don’t Run

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the LORD, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

I don’t know about you ladies, but occasionally, I tend to heap loads and loads of commitments onto my shoulders and for each of those commitments I give a deadline that’s extremely close to the others. I truly believe it is okay for us to be ambitious and desire success, but let’s not get into the spirit of exhausting ourselves in apprehension that God’s will for our lives won’t come to pass.

It is in no wise necessary for us to get in a hurry! If God has called us, he can and will equip us to carry out our assignment in efficient time. We don’t need to get in a rush to accomplish things just because the people in our circle seem to be blazing full speed ahead. Just calm down and be confident in your own abilities and “walk” toward your destination knowing not only that God has you covered, but he always knows exactly what he is doing and why.


Try This:

College Students: Instead of signing up to be a participant in all but two of your college campus organizations during Sophomore year, try committing to ONLY two. If you put less on your plate, you’ll be able to devote more time and quality of contribution to your commitments. If you pile too much onto your plate, you will more than likely end up missing meetings and events and a result eventually drop out of those organizations.

Single Sister: Wow! aren’t we the main ones that are always super determined and goal-oriented? Since we don’t have many commitments at home as far as husbands and children of course it is extremely important for us to busy ourselves with other things. I propose the following as a way to keep busy and productive without overloading yourself;

  • As a child of God, definitely remain active in ministry
  • Choose at least one great way to give back to your community in some area of volunteer work at least once a week (this can also be part of ministry)
  • Do great work on the job!
  • Remain active at least once a week is something that has absolutely nothing to do with work such as a hobby.

I notice that I am at my very best when I’m helping someone. That is also something that I love to do. The things that you love most are usually those things you’ve been graced to do. Whenever we stray outside of those things we enjoy we usually find ourselves in a stressful state. Do the things you are graced to do and keep “walking”.
